Khloe Kardashian Just Gave Birth To A Healthy Baby Girl—Hours After Finding Out She Was Cheated On
Khloe realized what she called her "greatest dream" last Thursday—to become a mom. But with recent allegations about her boyfriend's infidelity, we wonder how the first-time mom will handle both the good news, and the heartbreaking.
Will Khloe and Tristan Thompson, a Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player, break up? Will she decide to become a single parent? Will she, in the end, forgive him and allow her daughter to have her dad by her side?
Upset fans of the 33-year-old reality star have been asking the same questions ever since a whirlwind of news stories chronicling the last few moments before her birth surfaced earlier this week.
In case the stories escaped you, here's what you missed:
On Wednesday, an explosive scandal revealing the 27-year-old Tristan getting up close and personal (read: locking lips) with Lani Blair, a model, came to light. The two were caught spending time together in a New York City club on April 7, after which Tristan reportedly took her back to his Four Seasons hotel room. The model was later seen leaving the hotel on Sunday.
As if that wasn't bad enough, other news outlets supplemented the controversy with their own unpleasant surprises soon afterwards: photos and a video of Tristan again passionately kissing (among other things) with two different women. It was claimed that these were taken last October, when Khloe was just three months pregnant.
The news was so shocking that Tristan was even booed during his Wednesday night game which took place hours after the scandals broke. Although he played in his Cleveland home court, even his own followers seemed to disapprove of his ungentlemanly—and unfatherly—behavior.
The (possibly) ugly truth
Khloe, who is supposedly well-acquainted with Tristan's not-so-ideal habits, was shocked and distraught at the news.
It certainly didn't help that sources close to Tristan mentioned that his cheating ways were an open secret; these incidents come as no surprise to anyone and they definitely wouldn't be shocked to learn if Tristan had done more than these in the past.
What followed were rumors about the news being so bad that they pushed Khloe to go into labor.
True enough, the mom of one was brought to a hospital in Cleveland late Wednesday night where she was accompanied by sisters Kourtney and Kim, mom Kris, and yes, even Tristan who made it right after his game.
Khloe decided a long time ago that she would be based in Celeveland—away from her LA-based family—when she became a mom to be closer to Tristan so the trio could live a complete family life.
Unfortunately, all of it could change now depending on what Khloe decides for her family's future. Neither Tristan nor Khloe have publicly reacted to the controversy.
A silver lining
Choosing to stay positive throughout this ordeal, Khloe and her sisters are concentrating on the newest addition to the Kardashian-Jenner clan: the third baby girl to join the family just this year!
Kim welcomed baby girl Chicago via surrogate, Kylie welcomed baby Stormi before the summer, and now, Khloe adds a third newcomer to the beautiful brood. While she doesn't have a name yet, the word is that Khloe will pick a "T" or "K" name to give her bundle of joy.
In the meantime, Khloe was advised by her doctors to regain her strength in Cleveland for about a month. She'll most likely move back to LA and be with her family once the mother and daughter become well enough to travel.
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! 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! 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! 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! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ?? Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ??????
But when it comes to Tristan, it's an open story; the athlete who's earned himself the moniker of "serial cheater" has a lot of making up to do, if he expects to remain in Khloe's (and her family and fans') good graces.
Tristan is also a father to Prince, his son with ex-flame Jordan Craig.
