Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s troubled relationship was only complicated by the revelation that they were expecting a child via surrogate. People reported in July that the couple’s second child was conceived in November … just a month before Thompson’s child was born with lover Maralee Nichols.
When Nichols’ paternity test came back and confirmed Thompson as the father, it seemed like all hope of a reconciliation with Kardashian was gone. In a series of Instagram Stories picked up by Buzzfeed News, Thompson wrote, “Khloé you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I’ve caused you.” Kardashian, meanwhile, posted some not-so-cryptic quotes: “To the woman who believed this year would be a year of peace and genuine love, it sorry that these days, weeks and months have been so unkind to you.”
Needless to say, many were shocked when TMZ announced that the birth of Kardashian and Thompson’s second child is imminent. Now, new details have revealed exactly how this latest addition is impacting the duo’s relationship.
Khloé Kardashian “doesn’t care” what Tristan Thompson does
Since Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s second child will be born to a surrogate, nature doesn’t dictate that Kardashian also has to be present at the birth. However, a source for Hollywood Life claims the star plans to be there. “Khloe wants to be there for the birth and she doesn’t care if Tristan is there or not,” they said.
While there’s no word yet on whether Thompson will show up, it’s worth noting that the couple have committed to respectful co-parenting despite their troubled past history. “There are definitely tougher, bumpier, more turbulent days, but you never badmouth someone you have a kid with or even an ex with,” Kardashian said on The Drew Barrymore Show.
However, some felt that Thompson could have thrown shade at his ex in an Instagram Story posted in late July. “1. You are not promised anything. 2. Nobody owes you anything. 3. You have all the responsibility in your life,” he wrote on Us Weekly. We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newest Kardashian, and only time will tell how much Thompson chooses to be involved.
