Khloe Kardashian Finally Shares First Photos Of Her Newborn Daughter
Since the beginning of the year, the Kardashian-Jenners have welcomed many new members into their family.
Back in January, Kim Kardashian announced that her third child with her husband, rapper Kanye West, has arrived.
Kim and Kanye used a surrogate for their youngest, a daughter named Chicago West. The reality star initially faced backlash for her choice, but she later explained that contrary to popular belief, they decided to have a baby via a surrogate because doctors warned her that carrying another child could cost her and the fetus their lives.
Less than a month later, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, Kylie Jenner, confirmed the worst kept secret ever. On February 4, she took to social media to reveal that she and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott, have welcomed their first child, Stormi Webster.
Once the frenzy surrounding the new additions to the famous family died, all the attention shifted to Khloe Kardashian, who was nearing the end of her pregnancy.
After months of speculation, in December 2017, Khloe announced that she was indeed expecting her first child with her NBA player boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" wrote Khloe. "I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!"
Khloe, 33, who has had trouble conceiving for years, thanked Tristan, 27, for giving her chance to become a mother.
"Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages!" she continued. "Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!"
Little did she know that just a few months later, Tristan would be caught on camera cheating on her with another woman.
In a video obtained by the Daily Mail, the Cleveland Cavaliers player is seen kissing a brunette at the nightclub. TMZ later acquired footage of Tristan and the woman, later identified as Lani Blair, entering the Four Seasons Hotel at 5 a.m.
"Tristan has been consistently cheating on KhloÃ©. Heâ€™s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork," a source told People. "First Lamar cheated on her and now Tristan. Sheâ€™s been through so much," the insider added.
All of this took place just days before Khloe gave birth to their child.
Luckily, Khloe had her mom, sisters, and best friend, Malika, rally around her when it was time for her deliver the baby.
Despite everything, she allowed Tristan to be by her side as she gave birth to their daughter on April 12.
"[She is] putting her feelings on hold, realizing for better or worse Tristan is the father of their child and knowing a bond between father and child can be cemented in the delivery room," said a source close to the couple.
The new mother remained out of the spotlight as soon as the media hoopla started to get out of hand, and she has still not addressed the controversy.
In the days that followed her daughter's birth, she did return to social media to let her fans know that she named her True Thompson.
Khloe's mother, Kris Jenner, later explained the meaning behind the unique name.
"FUN FACTâ€¦my Grandfather's name on my Dad's side was True Otis Houghtonâ€¦ My Dad's name was Robert True Houghtonâ€¦ So I am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!" she tweeted.
Khloe later revealed on her blog that it was someone really special that suggested the name and it stuck with her.
â€œPicking a name for your child is really so tough!â€ wrote the new mom. â€œI knew I wanted my baby to have a â€˜Tâ€™ initial, so one night while we were all at dinner, thinking of some names, my grandma MJ suggested True.â€
She added, â€œI love that itâ€™s a family name and I canâ€™t wait to get back to LA so True can finally meet MJ in person!â€
Now, four weeks after True came into the world, Khloe marked the one-month milestone by sharing a photo and some videos of the adorable baby.
Take a look at how cute she is!
Just when we thought that was all we would get, Khloe returned to Snapchat to share some more precious clips of True on Mother's Day.
Khloe has also been slowly opening up about her experience as a first-time mom. She admitted that while there are blissful moments, it's still very challenging.
â€œItâ€™s also a struggle trying to fit in working out between feedings,â€ she said in a Snapchat video. â€œNo two days are the same. True is so great, but still, I canâ€™t predict if sheâ€™s gonna sleep for the full two hours or if sheâ€™s hungry.â€
As for her relationship with Tristan, Khloe has continued to stand by his side. She is currently living in Cleveland, while Tristan plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
However, not everyone is ready to forgive and forget. According to People, Khloe's family are struggling with accepting everything that has happened.
â€œThe family is still not happy with Tristan, and they have no desire to spend Motherâ€™s Day with him,â€ a source close to the Kardashian-Jenners said. Adding, "KhloÃ©â€™s decision to stay with Tristan has definitely caused friction. Her family hasnâ€™t visited her for weeks. Itâ€™s been hard for KhloÃ©, but she is doing what she believes is best for her family."
Khloe was recently spotted "cheering and doing a lot of clapping" at one of Tristan's games.
Tristan has also not commented on the allegations against him, but he did take the time to talk about his daughter during an interview.
â€œBaby True is eating, sleeping and, uh, sh*tting,â€ he said. â€œThatâ€™s all they do.â€ Adding that â€œthis is the first girl Thompson, female Thompson, so it's huge." He then revealed that True â€œhas a full head of hair,â€ â€œgreen eyes,â€ and "is 21 inches long."
Tristan, who is already a father to a 17-month-old boy, also expressed his interest in having more children. He did not go into details about who he plans on expanding his family with, but we hope for Khloe's sake, his eyes don't wander again.
