The birth of Khloé Kardashian’s first child with Tristan Thompson took an unexpected turn just days before she went into labor due in large part to multiple cheating allegations against her boyfriend. We knew that Kris Jenner, Kourtney, and Kim were by her side (Kim even held onto her leg during labor), and that Tristan himself was reportedly in the delivery room. But we hadn’t heard from Khlo Khlo—until now.
On Monday, the 33-year-old Good American designer and reality TV star finally addressed the elephant in the room—by basically choosing to ignore the elephant in the room. In an Instagram post, she revealed the name of her daughter, True Thompson, but surprisingly didn’t mention anything about the cheating scandal. In fact, based on her caption, it sounds as though everything is simply fine between her and Tristan.
“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” she wrote, using the collective “we,” and choosing to include Thompson in the way she speaks of her excitement. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”
While she doesn’t technically say she’s standing by Tristan’s side, it could be implied.
Tristan, on the other hand, has also kept a low-profile, and hasn’t publicly addressed the allegations nor the birth of his daughter. In fact, floods of angry Khloé fans are reportedly taking to his social media accounts to knock him down through the comments.
Unfortunately, not all members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan may be as enthusiastic about this situation as Khloé is. In fact, Kim and Kanye West are allegedly not at all happy with Tristan. “They both feel Khloé has gone through so much and that she deserves being happy,” a source told People. “They can’t believe that Tristan has been going behind everyone’s back. They find his behavior disgusting.”
“Kim is very protective of Khloé and especially upset,” the source added. “She can’t imagine Khloé will stay with Tristan but will support her sister either way.” Well Kim, it happened.
That said, other sources say it doesn't sound like Khloé will still be in a relationship with Tristan—perhaps she's simply down to co-parent. People reports that she's sill in Cleveland, where she gave birth, but plans to return to L.A. as soon as doctors give her the green light. She's also reportedly still mad at him.
“She still can’t believe what happened earlier this week,” a source said. “She is very bitter about it. She doesn’t want to be in a relationship with him. She will make sure her daughter still has a good relationship with him, though. Tristan is bonding with the baby.”
“She’s not going to be making a firm decision one way or the other just yet. She is concentrating on the baby,” another source told People. “The baby deserves that, and Khloé is focusing on being a mom and this early bonding experience. That applies to Tristan bonding with his daughter as well. As for her relationship with Tristan, she’ll look at next steps when she’s ready.”
Last week, a family source said Khloé had "basically already forgiven" him, so, it's safe to say this will be a wild ride.
