AceShowbiz - Khloe Kardashian is not ruling out a reconciliation with Tristan Thompson despite his betrayal. Words are the reality TV star "still loves" her baby daddy and sets her sights on getting him back though she was hurt by his infidelities.
"I'm told that Khloe still loves Tristan, she is fixed on redeeming him, and nothing would shock me if they got back together again," a source tells Page Six of Khloe. According to the so-called insider, Khloe's family is supporting her whatever her decision is. "This is really why the family is not shunning Tristan. They're standing by Khloe, of course. The Kardashians always stick together," the source claims.
As to Khloe's decision to have another child with Tristan, the source explains, "Khloe always wanted True to have a little brother, that was her dream. When she and Tristan created the embryos together, they were very much in love, and Khloe was excited for the future."
The embryo was implanted into a surrogate in the fall of 2021, but by December words got out that Tristan had secretly fathered a child, a son named Theo, with another woman, Maralee Nichols. "Her friends were so upset about the Tristan drama, and then those who were really in the loop knew that it was even more complicated because they had a baby on the way," the source shares.
The source says Khloe originally planned to announce her second child in season 2 of "The Kardashians" on Hulu, "but that was before the news of Tristan cheating and the breakup happened." The 38-year-old was further blindsided when news of the surrogacy leaked.
"It's just sad sometimes when you really want something to work," a friend of the clan says. "Khloe's very open about the fact that she knows her life is public and that's a choice she made - but still, it's just hard to have this all play out in public."
Meanwhile, an industry insider adds, "Once it was determined that they'd be going through the pregnancy somewhat separately, word got out to too many people and they realized it was likely going to leak and that it would be hard to keep things secret before the September premiere."
As of Friday, July 22, the baby had not yet been born despite rumors to the contrary. Meanwhile, Khloe has been sharing cryptic quotes that seemed to send conflicting messages about her feelings toward Tristan.
"Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire...If you did, what would there be to look forward to," she shared on her Instagram Story on Sunday, July 24, sparking a speculation that she dissed Tristan. "Be thankful when you don't know something...For it gives you the opportunity to learn."
"Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow," she added. "Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're tired and weary because it means you've made a difference." She then concluded, "Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings."
