It has been such a remarkable roller coaster of emotions for the Kardashian-Jenner clan this year. Not just one, but three babies joined the famous family. Kim Kardashian announced last year that she and her husband Kanye West were actually expecting a baby via surrogacy.
The reality star and entrepreneur revealed that she opted to have her third child via surrogate because of her pregnancy struggles. Her doctors diagnosed her with preeclampsia and placenta accreta, so it wouldn’t be safe for her to actually carry the baby herself.
Her surrogate gave birth to Chicago West last January. Her youngest sister Kylie was the next one to give birth, but she had decided to hide her entire pregnancy to the world and only announced it after a few days of giving birth. She also had a baby girl named Stormi Webster with rapper Travis Scott. 33-year-old Khloe Kardashian was the last one to give birth to another baby girl named True, find out more about her crazy labor journey and the meaning behind her daughter’s name by continue reading below.
Khloe’s Pregnancy Timeline
It was around June last year when Khloe Kardashian admitted on the final episode of the Keeping Up with the Kardashian that she has stopped taking birth control. For years now, with a lot of nieces and nephews, her sisters know that Khloe will actually be such a wonderful mother and she truly deserves to have children of her own.
Khloe admitted that she wanted to have kids with her boyfriend NBA player Tristan Thompson hence the no-more-birth-control move. In September, E! News released a report that says Khloe was indeed expecting a baby with Thompson but hasn’t revealed any more details yet.
Her mother, Kris Jenner even tried to play coy about it when asked during an interview. Before the year ends, Khloe posted a photo on Instagram with her baby bump and confirmed that she was indeed expecting. The 33-year-old even made an appearance at The Ellen DeGeneres show and talked about how she had always wanted.
An unexpected turn of events happened when she was reported to have started to go into labor. TMZ released a footage of Thompson being intimate with not just one but two girls last year. People speculated that this has got something to do with Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner, by working with TMZ and releasing the footage as her daughter was getting ready to give birth.
Some people think that the famous Kardashian-Jenner mom knew that Khloe was such in a sensitive condition and might lose the baby if ever this was released to the public last year when it happened. Some others believe that this is a publicity stunt for people to gain sympathy towards Khloe since she was getting ready to give birth but finding out that her baby-daddy cheated on her as well. It was later revealed that Tristan was actually in the delivery room when she was giving birth to their daughter named True Thompson.
Behind The Name
Khloe officially announced that she had decided to name her baby girl True. People speculated that Khloe would have chosen a different name for her baby if she found out about the cheating allegation way before she gave birth. An insider told US Weekly that Khloe has actually picked out the name True for quite awhile now and had been accustomed to it.
Looking and thinking of a different name while in the midst of all the craziness that was happening wasn’t exactly the best choice. Everything was also ready because most of the baby stuff that she got has either T or True on it. Another credible source also revealed that it took a while for Khloe to decided whether she would give her daughter her own surname which is Kardashian or her boyfriend’s surname which is Thompson. This then led to her having a hard time completing the birth certificate.
Khloe also posted on her newest blog that she opted to not give her baby daughter a middle name. However, she said that it may only be for the time being. The new mom admitted that she had a hard time picking out the first name so she hasn’t exactly decided whether to give her a middle name now but if she finds the perfect middle name, she would add it right away. This was also the choice of her elder sister Kim with her daughter Chicago as well as her youngest sister Kylie with her daughter Stormi.
