Are Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Engaged? The Couple Is Reportedly Expecting Their First Child
It looks like a rumor about a famous Kardashian and a Cleveland Cavaliers center is making its rounds. According to US Weekly, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting their first child — making fans wonder that there may be some truth to those Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson engagement rumors. Bustle has reached out to Kardashian's rep for comment and Thompson's agent, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
Is there a Kardashian pregnancy pact currently happening? Because if confirmed to be true, Khloe Kardashian's bundle of joy would join her older sister Kim Kardashian's and younger sister Kylie Jenner's — who is reportedly pregnant with her first child with rapper Travis Scott. As Kylie, Khloe has yet to say whether the rumors are true, but with her relationship with Thompson getting pretty serious, starting a family doesn't seem to be too far fetched for the 33-year-old.
Khloe has always been vocal about starting a family, and even went as far as to chronicle her trouble with getting pregnant by ex-husband Lamar Odom on their joint reality show, Khloé & Lamar, as well as Keeping Up With The Kardashians. However in the Season 13 finale of KUWTK, the personality admitted that she "fake tried" to get pregnant while married to Odom because she felt as though it wasn't the right time to have a child. In the episode, Khloe explains,
"I fake tried. I was married but I knew the circumstances weren't the healthiest, so I just kept pretending I was doing it. . . When I was doing my fertility treatments, they were more so for Lamar. I had to stop because there was much deeper stuff that was happening in our marriage. I knew that it wasn't the right situation to bring a child into and I think I've done a lot of covering up for him. Like even when it made me look like I was the problem. But I was fine taking that burden on my shoulders because he had a lot of deeper sh*t to deal with."
A visit to a fertility specialist in the same episode later revealed that Khloe is able to get pregnant, and knowing that her baller beau wants to have multiple kids in the future — this served as great news. Khloe also shared in the Season 13 finale that Thompson wants to have enough kids to start a basketball team, saying, "He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely. We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm not on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step."
Could that have been a hint that Khloe and Thompson would be in the family planning stages in the upcoming season? You have to admit, that's one heck of a way to lead into the KUWTK 10-year anniversary.
Lucky for the Kardashian-Jenner clan, their mom/manager Kris Jenner has more than enough grandma-experience under her belt. And with Khloe's alleged addition, the momprenuer will have a total of nine grandchildren — including the alleged three on the way. This means that Khloe's little one would potentially have more than enough playmates to keep them occupied.
The Kardashian family getting bigger is an ultimate win for KUWTK fans — because it confirms that the Kardashian reign will never end. So if you've yet to embrace the pop culture presence of the Kardashians and Jenners, now's the time. Because it seems today, they don't plan on slowing down their expansion anytime soon.
