Khloe Kardashian welcomed baby with Kim, not Tristan Thompson, with her

Khloe Kardashian gave an intimate look at the birth of her second child with love rat ex Tristan Thompson in the highly-anticipated premiere episode of season two of The Kardashians.

The explosive episode featured footage of their son’s birth via surrogate on July 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, as well as the emotional moment that Khloe was able to hold the newborn for the first time.

Yet the moment was tinged with sadness, with Khloe confessing that she felt as though a ‘dark cloud was looming over’ after it was revealed that the father of her children had been unfaithful yet again.

The arrival of the former couple’s second child came shortly after Khloe, 38, discovered that Tristan had cheated on her yet again with Houston-based personal trainer Maralee Nichols – with whom he had just welcomed another child. 

As a result, Khloe decided that her older sister Kim Kardashian should be in the delivery room instead of Tristan, 31 – though he was later invited to the hospital to meet his newborn.

Despite the unconventional and heartbreaking circumstances, Khloe said the arrival of her son allowed her to officially ‘close that chapter and be done with this trauma.’ 

Khloe also opened up about her decision to have a second child with Tristan, explaining that she was encouraged by the NBA star to go through with an embryo transfer ‘around Thanksgiving’ last year. 

Just a week later, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Tristan was expecting a child with fitness model Nichols. She gave birth to a son named Theo in early December.

Speaking in a confessional after their son was born, Khloe said: ‘I am so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift that we’re able to have.

‘Ever since December [when Tristan’s infidelity was revealed] there’s been this dark cloud looming over me. Every single day, I’ve been feeling depressed and sad, and now that my son is here, I get to move on, and I get to enjoy.’ 

Intimate: It included actual footage of their son's delivery, which took place on Thursday, July 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, as well as the emotional moment that Khloe was able to hold the newborn for the first time

She continued:  ‘It’s almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me. Now I finally get to start the healing process. Now I get to start enjoying my life with two kids in it and figuring this out.

‘This is gonna be day one, and this is gonna be the start of something positive, and happy and beautiful.’

Khloe also explained why, on the advice of Kim, she let Tristan meet his baby boy, saying: ‘I’ve been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured, why not let him come? I’ll never get this moment back.

The lead up to the birth began with Kim making her way to Khloe’s house after learning that Khloe’s surrogate ‘has to go into labor early.’

While on their way to the hospital Khloe admitted to Kim that she’s ‘not ready’ but her sister reassured her that she’s more than ready to welcome another child into her life.

After making their way into the labor ward, Khloe was shocked to learn that the surrogate was already in labor and that they’d be joining her in the delivery room in just a matter of minutes.

Kim, with her camcorder in hand, captured visuals of the hospital room they’ve been placed in, while Khloe got into medical garb.

With footage of heart monitors and other medical equipment on screen, a nurse could be heard instructing the surrogate on how to breathe and when to push.

She also informed Khloe that she’ll let her know ‘when [the baby] is gonna come.’

The surrogate began pushing while Khloe, clearly overwhelmed by the entire ordeal, removed her protective face mask and put her hands over her eyes.

Soon after, footage was shown of Khloe’s son’s birth as he was swiftly picked up by the doctor and wrapped in a blanket as nurses gave him afterbirth care.

With the birth serving as its dramatic conclusion, the premiere episode of The Kardashians kicked off with an intense heart-to-heart between Khloe and Kim that was filmed months prior.

Khloe admitted to the 41-year-old SKKN founder that she was fearful to go public with the baby news since she’s sure to face backlash in wake of Tristan’s paternity scandal. 

‘I mean, I’m anxious, but…I feel like it just has to be time to talk about… Bruno,’ Khloe began, while making reference to the popular song from Disney Pixar’s Encanto.

Kim encouraged Khloe that despite her reservations about going public, she ‘can absolutely do this’ and that she’ll ‘have a sense of relief.’

'When you guys learned that Tristan was having a baby with somebody else¿ there was just something that I wasn't ready to talk about,' Khloe explains, with tears welling up

'Tristan and I are ¿ I don't even know if I want to say "Tristan and I". I am having another baby and obviously it's just really private and I don't want it to get out right now because I want to protect my mental well-being and the surrogate's,' she says

‘Everyone will judge because that’s what these f***ing nasty people do anyway. And then it’ll be over,’ Kim explained passionately, while Khloe described the entire situation, itself, is just ‘sad.’

‘I think it’ll be therapeutic for you to deal [with it]. You haven’t wanted to deal. And you’re in denial about your relationship, you’re in denial this is happening, you’re in denial that someone committed to doing this with you and then…’ Kim ranted, before Khloe cut her off to add that Tristan had also ‘committed to someone else,’ aka their then-unborn child.

And after taking a deep breath, Khloe agreed that it is ‘time’ to reveal her baby news to the world.

‘I have two kids now,’ Kylie exclaimed, before taking a moment to check-in on Khloe and how’s she coping with her dramatic circumstances.

In confession, Khloe informed audiences at home that her ‘immediate family knows about the surrogate and the embryo transfer.’

She added that the pregnancy is a ‘dark cloud’ that she’s been ignoring in the months since Tristan’s betrayal.

Yet Kylie reassured Khloe that her child is going to be born into ‘the best family of all time.’

Khloe went on to tell her younger sister that their mom Kris had quipped ‘no one’s gonna notice’ that there’s a new addition to the family.

Kylie stressed that ‘everything happens for a reason’ and that there’s no way Khloe could’ve know that things were going to turn out the way they did.

In another confession, Khloe explained to producers that she and Tristan ‘did an embryo transfer days before Thanksgiving’ and that she ‘found out about Tristan’s situation the first week of December.’ 

She stressed that because the dates are so close, she does not want people to think she went through with the surrogacy after the fact.

‘Why would I wanna have a baby with someone who’s having a baby with somebody else?’ she asked rhetorically. ”Cause I’m not that much of sociopath. I’m a lunatic, but not like f***ing deranged.’

Continuing to comfort Khloe, Kylie reminded her that ‘everything is going to be ok’ and that her reaction to the circumstances is ‘normal.’

‘This is obviously very hard to navigate and I just hate that she’s sad,’ Kylie tells producers while wiping tears from her eyes.

She called it a ‘blessing in disguise, which seemed to make Khloe, who is seated across from Kris with her arms crossed, uncomfortable.

Kris says in confessional that she feels bad that the ‘joy has been sucked out of’ the experience, again, like it was when Tristan cheated on Khloe while she was pregnant with their daughter True in 2018.

Kris explained to Khloe that she’s so visibly emotional because it feels as though it’s the ‘first time’ she’s been allowed to bring it all up to her daughter.

‘We don’t want to upset you. We don’t want you to be sad. But this is supposed to be one of the happiest times in your life,’ Kris said, while adding that ‘if you do not appreciate those moments you can’t get them back.’

Khloe told her mother that she doesn’t want a baby shower this ga around because it’s ‘uncomfortable for me,’ but Kris fired back with: ‘I would regret not celebrating this moment with my new grandchild.’

Khloe eventually gives in, but wants the baby shower to be low-key.

Shortly after agreeing to the celebration, Khloe is visited by her cousin CC, who she goes on to reveal her baby news to.

She also rehashes Tristan’s past infidelities, including learning just 48 hours before giving birth to True that he’d cheated once again. She describes the ordeal as one that was ‘so terrible’ to experience.

Despite the heartache she’s endured, Khloe confesses to CC and Kris that she’s been exploring different ‘T’ names to call her future son.

Cutting to Kim’s Calabasas compound, Khloe discussed with her what it’ll be like in the delivery room with the surrogate.

Kim, who shares four children with ex-husband Kanye West, welcomed her youngest daughter Chicago, four, and youngest son Pslam, three, via a surrogate in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Kim feared that due to COVID, the hospital may not allow more than two people in the room during the delivery.

After seeking her advice about whether or not to have Tristan there, Kim remarks that if Khloe ‘did it once mad at Tristan’ then she could ‘do it again and have him there.’
