On July 13, 2022, news broke that Khloé Kardashian is expecting her second child with Tristan Thompson via a surrogate. "We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family," a source told People.
The child, reportedly a baby boy, was conceived a month before Thompson's son was born, while Kardashian and Thompson were still together.
"Khloe kept the pregnancy a secret to protect surrogate privacy and safety," a source told E! News on July 14, "and to protect her mental health from judgement from the public as a result of Tristan's actions."
On July 14, a source told People that Kardashian wants Tristan in their second child's life. "Just like they do with True, Khloé will co-parent the baby with Tristan," the source said. "Tristan is the dad and Khloé wants him involved as much as possible. He is great with True." However, a source previously told the outlet that "Khloé and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters."
