Khloe Kardashian is making sure her fans are keeping up with her family. Weeks after news broke that she and Tristan Thompson welcomed a son via surrogate, the reality star talked about her new baby during an interview with Elle.
When she was asked about how she’s doing now that she has two children, The Kardashians star said, “I know it’s cliché, but I love everything, even the hard parts.”
According to her, her kids challenge her as a person, adding “being able to shape little people into really incredible big people is an honor and a gift.”
Khloe continued, “We have to take those roles seriously, especially in today’s day and age, with how much accessibility children have and the information they’re exposed to so young. It’s super scary, but I take my job very seriously. I love it so much.”
This is the first time that the Good American co-founder talked about her new baby boy with her ex-boyfriend, who faced a paternity lawsuit last year before the DNA test rest results revealed and confirmed that he is the father of Maralee Nichols’ eight-month-old son, Theo. He shares True with Khloe and has five-year-old son with Jordan Craig named Prince.
A source told E! News before that the reality star kept the pregnancy a secret “to protect surrogate privacy and safety and to protect her mental health from judgement from the public as a result of Tristan’s actions.” In fact, the reality star kept everything a secret that some in her inner circle didn’t even know about it. When the news broke, an insider told the outlet that she was “forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce.”
On June 13, her rep also shared a statement with the outlet stating, “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.”
The news of their new baby came six months after the basketball star apologized to Khloe in public after the paternity test results confirmed that he’s the father of Theo. That time, he wrote on his social media account, “Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.”
