In case you missed it: Khloe Kardashian is expecting another baby with Tristan Thompson via surrogate, and their child is due soon.
Social media is currently in flames upon hearing this news, as the entire situation doesn’t quite make sense in many ways.
The first issue many pointed out is that there was no way Khloe Kardashian didn’t know about the surrogate all this time. Some believe she genuinely found out at the last second, however, the majority have an inkling she knew all along and decided to keep it under wraps. US Weekly confirmed that she’s “grateful” about the whole experience after all, so it would be nearly impossible to not believe she was looped in on her surrogate’s pregnancy journey.
Another thing that many don’t believe makes sense is the timeline of the surrogate’s conception. Was it after Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe with Maralee Nichols? Was it before the fact?
Let’s try to piece it all together.
When did Khloe Kardashian’s surrogate get pregnant?
People Magazine confirms Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s baby was conceived via surrogacy in November 2021, meaning the couple went through with the surrogacy after the time in which Tristan got Maralee pregnant (around March/April 2021). Therefore, the blame isn’t necessarily on Khloe, as she wasn’t aware of Tristan’s infidelity until months after the fact.
“The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December,” a source confirmed.
Tristan not only kept his cheating a secret from Khloe for months but also didn’t speak up when it counted the most; when Khloe was planning baby number two. Without a doubt, the heat is on Tristan.
Why did Khloe Kardashian keep her surrogacy a secret?
The final thing people are curious about regarding this situation is why Khloe Kardashian wouldn’t include the surrogate’s pregnancy in the first season of The Kardashians.
Prior, the celebrity spoke a lot about wanting her daughter, True Thompson, to have a sibling, and how upsetting it was to realize she might not be able to give True a sibling herself.

If Khloe was able to make their biggest dream come true, why keep it a secret? Why not celebrate? Only time will tell why she chose not to film this momentous occasion, but fans are well within their rights to feel a tad deceived by a show that was meant to be a deeper dive into the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
There’s no denying it, Khloe Kardashian absolutely has to address the situation. Hopefully, when (or if) she does, she answers all of our burning questions and so much more. But then again, ultimately, it’s her business.
“Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing,” a source stated. “We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.”
