On Thursday, April 12, multiple sources reported that Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed a baby girl. Shortly after the reports popped up, Kris Jenner confirmed the wonderful news with a tweet. And, given that some of the other births in her family have been featured on the family's reality show — in Kourtney Kardashian's case, very graphically — it's worth asking: Will Khloé Kardashian giving birth be on Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 15? That is to be determined, but here's one thing that is for certain: Whatever is best for Kardashian and her new baby is the best call.
On Dec. 20, 2017, Kardashian confirmed on Instagram that she and Thompson were expecting a child. The baby is the KUWTK star's first kid and the Cleveland Cavaliers center's second. A few days after the official announcement hit the internet, she tweeted that she was about six months along, making her due in either March or April 2018. But in the final days of her pregnancy, the excitement surrounding the new addition to her family hit a speed bump: TMZ reported that Thompson apparently cheated on Kardashian. (Bustle reached out to Kardashian's reps and Thompson's agent for comment on the rumors and videos, but did not receive an immediate response.)
Considering of the recent reports about Thompson apparently cheating on her, it would be beyond understandable if Kardashian decided to keep the cameras out of the delivery room. Having a baby should be an exciting and happy and beautiful time, and if letting the cameras into the delivery room adds even more stress to what recently became a presumably stressful situation, who would want that? Sure, her family has more or less signed up to live their lives in front of the cameras, but they all have a right to draw the line somewhere. If she decides she doesn't want to include this moment on the show? That's her call. And if she decides she does want it to be part of the reality series? That would also be her prerogative.
On Tuesday, April 10, TMZ released a video of Thompson apparently getting handsy with two women — neither of whom were Kardashian — in a hookah lounge back in Oct. 2017. That same day, reports popped up about Thompson possibly cheating on Kardashian with another woman just this past weekend. According to TMZ, Thompson was in the delivery room with Kardashian. Early Thursday morning, TMZ reported that sources claimed,
"Khloé's putting her feelings on hold, realizing for better or worse Tristan is the father of their child and knowing a bond between father and child can be cemented in the delivery room."
Entertainment Tonight reported that a source claimed Thompson has been "apologetic and begging for forgiveness" in the wake of the accusations.
Even before the Thompson cheating reports popped up earlier this week, there was some tittle-tattle about Kardashian possibly not wanting the KUWTK cameras around while she gave birth. (Keep in mind that the following are all from unnamed sources, so maybe make sure several grains of salt are handy.) On Friday, April 6, Hollywood Life reported that a source claimed Kardashian was being "hot and cold" about allowing the show to be at the hospital while she gives birth. The source claimed,
"The [KUWTK] crew isn’t sure what the plan is because she’s being super hot and cold about whether she wants cameras there or not. Just a few weeks ago it was all a go as far as filming, but then Khloe did a 180 and banned them all."
On Monday, April 2, RadarOnline reported that an insider claimed Kardashian apparently wanted "no cameras" in the delivery room.
In Sept. 2017, Kardashian told Glamour that there have been a few especially personal KUWTK storylines over the years that the family wishes weren't featured on the show. She said,
"That's the sad thing. We can't deal with things in a normal period, like normal people. We have to kind of brush ourselves off and move on."
Hopefully, Kardashian is given a chance to experience becoming a mother, as well as deal with the Thompson accusations, in a normal period.
