When the NBA star’s cheating scandal broke in December, the surrogate for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson was already carrying their child, a source tells PEOPLE.
“We can say with certainty that True will have a sister who was born in November. Khloé is immensely appreciative of the exceptional surrogate for this wonderful blessing. Kindness and discretion are requested so that Khloé can concentrate on her family “Kardashian, 38, told PEOPLE on Wednesday through a spokesman.
Despite expecting a sibling for their 4-year-old daughter True, the insider tells PEOPLE that Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are not back together and have not communicated since December outside of co-parenting matters.”
Thompson, 31, revealed in January that he had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. He stated as much in an Instagram Story “I accept full accountability for my choices. Now that paternity has been confirmed, I’m looking forward to raising our son amicably.”
Since 2016, he and Kardashian have been in an on-again, off-again romance. True was born in 2018. Prince, Thompson’s 5-year-old son with ex Jordan Craig, is also his child.
At the time, the Chicago Bulls player wrote to the Kardashian family star to express his regret “You don’t deserve this, Khloé. You don’t deserve the suffering and embarrassment I’ve put you through. The way I’ve treated you throughout the years is not something you deserve. Clearly, my behavior hasn’t matched how I feel about you. I love and respect you more than anything. Despite what you might believe. Again, I apologize profusely.”
