Finally, baby joy for Khloe!
Another bub’s joining the Kardash kreche – and he’s the one we’ve all been waiting for! But is Tristan cheating already?
Pop the bubbly, dolls – and some non-alcoholic cider for the mamma-to-be – because klucky Khloe Kardashian is finally set to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet. Squeeeal!
Hot on the heels of news that her youngest sister Kylie Jenner is up the duff, it was last week confirmed that after years of trying, Khlo is expecting her first child – with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, 26.
And in equally exciting news, NW has learnt that the bub is a boy, after the couple-of-one-year opted to find out its gender ahead of the February arrival.
“Khloe’s not a fan of surprises and likes to be prepared for everything,” an insider tells NW. “Of course, she just wants her baby to be healthy and would’ve been just as thrilled with a girl, but deep down, a part
of her always wanted her firstborn to be a boy.”
While the reality star once turned to IVF to try for a baby with her ex-husband Lamar Odom – thanks to heavy drug use supposedly causing a problem with his swimmers – TMZ reports that Khloe conceived naturally.
“This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years,” a source tells US People mag of the star, who’s a little over four months along. “She didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally.
“She is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves,” the insider adds. “Everyone is over the moon for them both.”
But the couple – who already affectionately call each other “Mom” and “Dad” – kept the news under wraps for some time, not only because it was a special moment they wanted to share together, but also because Kylie’s pregnancy news “complicated” things.
“It is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore,” adds the source.
While Koko’s long been klucky, this year she’s had babies on the brain more than ever.
In fact, she even went off birth control in June, after fertility specialist Dr Andy Huang advised her to ditch the pill in order to get her follicle count up and increase her chances of falling pregnant.
“Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family,” Khloe said on KUWTK, after Dr Huang gave her a clean bill of health. “He wants to have five or six kids with me... We could start at one and we could grow from there.’
But storm clouds are already threatening to rain on Koko’s parade, with pals fearing that although she’s got her baby, her man will be harder to lock down.
Indeed, the Cleveland Cavaliers star has a track record of cheating on his pregnant girlfriends.
When he first hooked up with Khloe, 33, last September, he was said to still be dating model Jordan Craig, 26 – who was pregnant with their son Prince, now nine months.
“He didn’t want a child yet… Tristan was mad about the baby and left Jordan for Khloe,” a source told In Touch mag at the time. “He and Jordan were still living together when Khloe opened her arms to him.”
No doubt pals are worried that history may repeat and Khloe will find herself in Jordan’s shoes.
“Just because Khloe’s having his kid doesn’t guarantee he’s going to stick around,” says NW’S insider. “It could be just a matter of time before he leaves her holding the baby, too, and moves onto his next conquest.” n
