Kris Jenner Confirmed Khloe Kardashian Gave Birth By Sharing A Silly Video Of Kendall
On April 12, multiple sources from E! News to TMZ reported that Khloé Kardashian had given birth to her baby girl in Cleveland. Now, that news has been confirmed by the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch herself. In a Twitter post, Kris Jenner confirmed Khloé Kardashian gave birth and let her fans know how happy she was about the good news.
Jenner reposted a W Magazine tweet, which includes a video of Kendall Jenner saying "baby" three times over and over, a nod to the momager's three new grandchildren (Kim Kardashian's baby Chicago, Kylie Jenner's baby Stormi, and Khloé's as of yet unnamed baby daughter). The magazine's post says, "When three of your sisters give birth in under a year," to which Jenner replied, "BLESSED!!!" Her response not only served as the first word from any of the Kardashian-Jenner crew on Kardashian's baby news, but also confirmed the news in the process.
TMZ previously reported that Kardashian had given birth early on April 12, and that her family (Kris, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian) and her BFF Malika Haqq were with her. The child's father, Tristan Thompson, was also present for the birth, despite the recent cheating allegations surrounding him. (Bustle reached out to Thompson and Kardashian regarding the reports, but did not receive a response.) People reported that Jenner and Kim flew to be by the Revenge Body star's side shortly after those cheating claims emerged on April 10 in order to support her.
Jenner has yet to follow up on her tweet nor have any of the other Kardashians commented directly on the baby news (even though their social media accounts have been active since Kardashian reportedly gave birth with posts promoting their brands). Although, Us Weekly and Cosmopolitan have both reported that Kourtney's latest Instagram post may be a subtle nod to her sister and her newborn daughter.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a photo that featured her daughter, Penelope Disick, her friend Tracy Nguyen Romulus' daughter Ryan, and North West with the caption "GIRL POWER." Seeing as though her sister gave birth to a baby girl just hours before she made the post, it stands to reason that Kourtney could have given a nod to her niece with the snap.
While Kardashian's other famous family members haven't directly commented on the news themselves, it's really only a matter of time until some of them do.
It's so nice to see Jenner's excitement over her growing family, as evidenced by her latest tweet, because she's been so thrilled about Kardashian being able to experience motherhood. When the reality star first announced to her family that she was expecting, the momager, and everybody else, were besides themselves with joy. And, luckily enough, the whole announcement was captured for KUWTK. During the episode, Jenner said, through tears, "I just never thought that this one [Khloé] was going to be able to have a baby. I just want you to be happy."
Of course, in the midst of all of this happy news, the father of her child, Thompson, has been in the midst of a cheating scandal. On April 10, the Daily Mail reported that Thompson was caught getting close to a woman and allegedly kissing her in NYC on April 7. Also on April 10, TMZ reported that the basketball player had allegedly cheated on Kardashian with two women in October 2017 in Washington D.C. when she would have been around three months along in her pregnancy. Kardashian nor Thompson have yet to comment on any of the recent allegations.
Following these allegations, and based on multiple reports from TMZ to People, it seems as though Kardashian's family members have been by her side to lend her their support. And, in Jenner's case at least, they're also supporting her by discussing the happy baby news on social media, too.
