Updated April 16, 2018, 3:30 p.m. ET: Let the Kardashian-kid name puns continue, because Khloé Kardashian’s baby name is a truly spectacular addition. Kardashian shared the adorable choice Monday via Instagram.
“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” Kardashian wrote. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”
Kris Jenner also chimed in on Instagram to explain that little True is named after Kris’ grandfather, True Otis Houghton.
One question remains. In regard to that one Kardashian fan who had a dream about a stormi and reign-filled night in North Chicago etc. — is that dream now bound to come… true??
Original story, published April 12, 2018: There’s a new Kardashian kid in town: Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their baby girl on Thursday, April 12, sources have confirmed to People and TMZ. Watch out, world, there’s another Aries on the loose!
The baby, who reportedly has yet to be named, is said to be doing well. Kardashian’s family — including mother, Kris, and sisters Kim and Kourtney — were in the delivery room along with the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, TMZ reports. That’s right: Dad was there.
That may come as a surprise to some since the exciting baby news comes just days after reports Thompson had repeatedly cheated on Kardashian throughout her pregnancy. The most recent instance was reported on April 10, a week after Thompson was caught on camera walking into his hotel room in New York with an unidentified woman (who was definitely not Kardashian) in the wee, small hours of the morning. Prior to that, People reports Thompson had been caught canoodling around the country with various women.
According to Complex, Cleveland Cavaliers fans booed Thompson during his game on Wednesday night. Some people even held signs declaring their love and loyalty for Kardashian.
Despite any unfortunate news, Kardashian seemed to be in high spirits regarding her final days of pregnancy. Kardashian announced on her app she was “not afraid about giving birth” just days before she went into labor.
“I don’t feel like I need to prepare for my birth by freaking myself out,” she wrote, according to People. “I’ve seen over eight births live and in person. Women were made to do this! It’s a very natural experience. I read my apps every day and I ask my doctor if I have any questions, so I’m honestly not that afraid. Of course I’m a little nervous to go into labor, but I’m trying to not overthink something that literally happens all the time.”
As for how she feels about what comes after birth (you know, parenting), she wrote in another post that she feels cool and prepared thanks to her nieces and nephews.
“When it comes to being around kids, I feel like I’ve gotten some good experience thanks to my nieces and nephews,” Kardashian wrote in a blog shared on her app. “I also basically helped raise my little sisters. But still, I don’t think you know what type of mom you’ll be until you have your own children. You can have all the training and preparation in the world, but you’re never truly ready for motherhood — at least that’s what people keep telling me. What I do know is that I have incredible patience and love for children, no matter what. And love gives me the will to handle anything.”
The Kardashians are certainly no strangers to swaddling little ones. In January of this year, Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed their third child, Chicago, into their family via surrogate. Weeks later, Kylie Jenner gave birth to her first child, Stormi Webster.
We sense many pink-filled playdates in the near future.
