Khloe Kardashian prepares to welcome second child via surrogate
hloe Kardashian says she is “incredibly grateful” as she prepares to welcome her second child.
The reality star, 39, and her former partner Tristan Thompson, 31, are expecting their second child via a surrogate, her representatives have confirmed.
The couple share a four-year-old daughter True, though Kardashian has opened up previously about her potential struggles with conceiving another child.
A representative for Kardashian told the PA news agency: “We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November.
“Khloe 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.”
Thompson and Kardashian officially ended their relationship back in January after it was revealed the basketball star had fathered a child with another woman.
It is understood the former couple remain separated apart from co-parenting issues and that their second child was conceived via surrogate before the revelations became public.
The surprise news has been met with a mixed reaction, and many of Kardashian’s fans have criticized her former partner.
One social media user wrote: “So Tristan Thompson agrees to have another baby with Khloe Kardashian via surrogate knowing damn well another woman is carrying his baby, born in December, who he hasn’t even met yet. Do I have this correct? This is some next level clownery.”
Another wrote: “Khloe, girl. The logic of wanting your kids to be full siblings is not even worth parenting another child with Tristan Thompson.”
