Following the news the former couple will be welcoming a baby boy in the coming months, an insider told Entertainment Tonight, "The two aren’t together and Khloe will have the baby full time. Khloe wants Tristian in both the kids' lives as much as he wants to be."
"Khloe and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters," the source went on to explain.
However, the former flames "have long said they wanted True [Thompson] to have a sibling, and Khloe even told her family she’d do it without Tristian if she needed to."
As OK! previously reported, a representative for Kardashian confirmed the news on Thursday, July 13. "We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November," the statement read via Radar.
"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," her rep concluded.
The Revenge Body star and the NBA player had quite the rocky history. In December of last year, it was revealed Thompson stepped out on their relationship once again in March of 2021, when he got Texas based fitness trainer Maralee Nichols pregnant with a baby boy following his birthday celebrations.
According to the insider, the decision to move forward with the surrogacy journey came before Kardashian knew about Thompson's secret love child. The two "were on good terms they decided to move forward with surrogacy near the end of last year," the source noted, adding how that decision came right before "Tristian was caught cheating."
The shocking update got the internet into a tizzy with one Twitter user writing, "Khloe Kardashian has 74 siblings and not one of them told her to leave this man?"
"No joke. Somebody needs to sit down with khloe Kardashian & have a serious talk with her …because she look desperate," one threw in about the current mother-of-one.
