Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have welcomed their second child and first baby boy together via surrogate.
The former couple, whose on-and-off relationship has been plagued by allegations of infidelity on several occasions, are already the proud parents of a four-year-old daughter called True.
A rep for Khloe told Page Six on Friday that she “is incredibly grateful to the amazing surrogate for such a beautiful blessing.”

The rep continued in a statement, “We would like to request some kindness and privacy so Khloe can focus on her family.”
Khloe and Tristan haven’t rekindled their romance following the arrival of their new baby, a source told Page Six.
Their five-year on-off relationship imploded in December 2021 when DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that the NBA star fathered a child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols while he was still involved with Khloe.
By the time Maralee and Tristan’s son Theo was born in December, Khloe and Tristan’s surrogate was already pregnant with their new baby.

A source recently told Us Weekly that Tristan had “tried countless times to win back” Khloe, but was “done with him for good.”
The exes dated between 2016 and 2021, although the relationship was rocked by the sportsman’s serial infidelity.
Less than 48 hours before True’s birth, DailyMail.com exclusively broke Tristan’s alleged affair with New York strip club bartender Lani Blair.
They then stayed together, but broke up in February 2019 after Tristan shared a kiss at a party with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, then Khloe’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.

When the coronavirus lockdowns hit, Tristan and Khloe moved in together so they could both be with True – and also rekindled their romance.
Reports of their latest split began circulating in June 2021 as Tristan found himself denying a whirlwind of cheating rumors.
Last year it emerged that he fathered a child with another woman while still in love with Khloe.
DailyMail.com exclusively obtained court documents in late 2021 claiming Tristan had a baby by a woman named Maralee Nichols.

Maralee gave birth on December 1 and released a statement a few weeks later with the first public photos of her son.
Tristan took to Instagram in early January and confessed for the first time that he was the father of Maralee’s baby, after establishing the fact via a paternity test.
Khloe unleashed a furious tirade on her ex in The Kardashians finale, which aired in June, after learning he not only cheated on her again – but fathered a secret child with another woman.
She made the shock discovery of Tristan when her sister Kim Kardashian, 41, read a story on DailyMail.com, which exclusively broke the news that the former NBA player had admitted to fathering a child in court documents.

In the latest episode of the reality show, an emotional Khloe was seen bursting into tears as she slammed Tristan for “humiliating” her with yet another public scandal.
“I called him and said, what do you have to say? It was more shouting from me, but him talking, trying to make his case. There’s not much to say in my opinion,’ Khloe said later in the episode.
“It’s a joke, it’s rude, it’s a joke, it’s embarrassing, it’s disgusting, we’re everywhere. I’m like, I didn’t buy tickets to this fucking circus but somehow I’m watching all these clowns perform in front of me,’ Khloe added.

“I want a refund, return to sender, I don’t want to be at that show. Somehow the clowns come back in that fucking clown car and no matter what he says, nothing will give me the answers I seek, closure.
Khloe first became involved with Tristan when his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig was still pregnant with his five-year-old son Prince.
Although Jordan claimed she was still with Tristan when he met Khloe, the reality star insisted she thought he was single at the time.
