Fans of the Kardashians have patiently waited for Khloé Kardashian to share the name of her baby boy, and they finally got the answer to their question! Nine months after welcoming her and ex Tristan Thompson’s son via surrogate, Khloé revealed his name on the season three premiere of The Kardashians which was released on Hulu today.
Drum roll, please…
Tatum! Hello baby Tatum! The name Tatum has English and American etymology and means “brings joy,” and there’s no doubt in our minds that the little boy does just that.
ICYMI: Khloé’s 5-year-old daughter, who she also shares with Thompson, is named True. Khloé hinted last month that she would stick to using a “T” name — which echoes her own family’s tradition of beginning all siblings’ names with the same letter — and she kept her word.
So what took so long to decide on (and share) the perfect “T” name? Khloé had previously said it took some time for her to settle on what to call him, and she repeated that sentiment on the show.
“Naming a human is really hard,” she said. And boy, is that the truth! We see baby naming drama on the Reddit “Am I The A—hole” (AITA) subreddit nearly every day, and plenty of parents wait a bit to see which name feels like the right fit (look no further than Khloé’s own sister Kylie Jenner, who actually renamed her baby boy when “Wolf” wasn’t quite the ticket.
Khloé also shared in the new episode that because he was born via surrogate, she feels a little less connected to Tatum than she does with True.
“It’s a mindf*ck,” she said “It’s really the weirdest thing.”
We love all of Khloé ‘s sweet motherhood quotes including what she wrote for True’s second birthday:
“You are all of my unforgettable memories of the past few years, the precious magical moments of the present and the promise of a happy future. You are literally my entire world!…You make my life complete and I can’t wait to have forever with you!!! Until the end of time; I love you my sweet girl.”
Khloé also gave True some major love last month when she turned 5. She threw a lavish birthday party and had such sweet words for her firstborn.
“True, you must have heard me from heaven because I prayed for you for years,” she wrote on Instagram. “I must’ve done something right, because I have been blessed with one of the most gentle, empathetic, loving, happy, grateful and silly little girls…I’ve dreamt of my daughter for as long as I can remember but my dreams were not even close to the reality that God blessed me with.”
