Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson’s big priority is ‘giving True a sibling’

tristan khloe

Here’s the thing: I would have respect for Khloe Kardashian if she presented her personal choices honestly and didn’t try to publicly “blame” Tristan Thompson’s side chicks. Like, Khloe knows that Tristan screws around, sees other women, etc. It’s never been a secret. So when Khloe fought so hard to stay with Tristan after she gave birth to True, a lot of us were like “WTF.” But she kept going and going and then she completely freaked out on Jordyn Woods because… Tristan kissed Jordyn. And there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that Khloe and Tristan weren’t even together then. So Tristan and Khloe have been doing this stupid back-and-forth, are-they-really-together thing for a while. And what I would appreciate from Khloe is just an acknowledgement that there is no romantic aspect to this mess anymore, that she and Tristan get along for True, and that he’s going to father her second child but, again, they’re not really together. Because that’s the truth.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson continue to be serious about conceiving a second child together. The pair already share 2½-year-old daughter True, and according to one source close to the couple, Khloé, 36, and Tristan, 29, are actively trying and planning for baby No. 2. “Khloé and Tristan still want to give True a sibling. It’s a big priority for both of them,” the source tells PEOPLE. “They really want it to work out.”

“Khloé is spending most of her time in L.A. while Tristan is working in Boston. Khloe enjoys visiting Boston, but she doesn’t want to live there,” adds the source. “Tristan understands that she wants to be with her family. True loves playing with all her cousins and is the happiest in LA with them.”

In a teaser for the upcoming final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloé sits down with the NBA player to discuss the idea of having another baby together.

“Kim [Kardashian West], every time I post a video of True, she [direct-messages me] and she’s like, ‘She can’t play by herself her whole life,’ ” Khloé says in the clip. “In my head, when I was going to have kids, I never ever imagined having an only child.”

While Khloé says she’s always wanted a big family, the pandemic made her reevaluate her priorities: “Being in quarantine with her, I felt bad. She had no friends, she had nobody, because they were isolated from each other. True is getting older. I just feel like it’s now time to have another kid.”

“Yup, that’s what I like to hear,” responds Tristan, who’s also dad to son Prince, 4, with ex Jordan Craig.

[From People]

There’s so much weird only-child-shaming in this family and in American society these days. I don’t get it – families are getting smaller, and lots of people just want one kid, or they’re happy with just one child. I’m an only child and it was great! I mean, there are good and bad parts, just like there are good and bad parts to having siblings. But people act like only children grow up to be emotionally stunted trolls or something. When really, we’re just self-sufficient.

I’m including the clip referenced by People below. Tristan saying he’s always wanted four kids… hm. Khloe also talks about how she’s already frozen her eggs and so Tristan needs to make an appointment so they can do everything in a lab. Which, again, is fine – if Khloe wants True to have a sibling and she wants Tristan to be the father, so be it. But don’t wrap it up in this bizarre “we’re still together and I’ll freak out on any woman he sleeps with” energy.

    True has a sibling already. A brother from his first baby momma.

    • Oh_Hey says:

      This. She’s not an only child. She has an older brother with a different mom who’s almost her age.

      Like based in the KarJenners own family dynamics pre-show they don’t really believe in half or step siblings their just siblings.

      • Sarita says:

        Except the Kardashians and Jenners are half siblings. But yes there are many double standards and they don’t see all siblings the same

    • kilmosnaps says:

      Exactly. SHE HAS a half sibling. Who is literally the same age cause her mom has no sense. Also she’s got 8-9(?) cousins – she isn’t hurting for a familial bond.

      With that said – I’d probably want a sibling too if I had to deal with Khloe’s type of crazy. They would bond over having their mom having a new face every 6 months.

  2. Astrid says:

    I feel sad for True

  3. Joan Callamezzo says:

    Please. This child already has an older half sibling and 9 Kardashian cousins close in age. Maybe Khloe will have twins and be done.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    True has a sibling.

    Plenty of children play with these things called “friends,” Kim, or they learn to entertain themselves or read.

    Thompson’s focus should be on doing his job. I’m not impressed and I think Ainge should get rid of him.

  5. Lunasf17 says:

    This is so odd to me but I guess they have the money and resources to make it happen. I agree that we need to quit shaming only children, that’s so weird to me. Kids aren’t a status symbol.

  6. Andrea says:

    Bringing more children into a toxic relationship that will never work out is never a good idea. I know a woman who was so desperate for children at 35, she had two kids with a guy from high school who was in and out of jail and addicted to drugs. He now is unsurprisingly not in the children’s lives.

    As an only child, there is such stigma around being one. I have privileges that I wouldn’t have had had I had siblings. In addition, some of my friends have nothing in common with their siblings and have a cold and distant relationship with them and others downright dislike one another. Just because you give your child siblings doesn’t mean they will get along.

  7. ican'tanymore says:

    Kaiser, thank you for saying that you were OK as an only child. We tried for 7 years to have ONE child, and we can’t have another even though we really want one and it’s painful – having people say lots of presumptions about only children (none of those people had trouble conceiving nor were any of them only children) is just crappy. Our kiddo is independent, funny, bright, and full of joy. He’s not broken. Also with the “Well, just adopt”…don’t do that. Adopted kids are not “alternatives” or “consolation prizes” – they are worthy, extraordinary persons and not every family that can’t conceive chooses to or can successfully adopt.

    • Amy Too says:

      Our only child is 14. He’s also the only grandkid on both sides, so he has no cousins at all. And he’s okay! He has friends and schoolmates and team mates. He has no trouble at all socializing. He can entertain himself but sometimes gets bored like all kids do. He is well adjusted and happy and WE are also very happy and able to focus all our attention and money and time on the one child. And since we don’t have a lot of money and time, that’s worked out well for us.

    • Bibi says:

      I knew somebody a while ago, she was turning 40, she was divorced, was in a new relationship with a guy, and was an only child. She said something that really struck me. She said, “now that my father is gone and my mother is 75 years old, I realize that soon I will have no witness to my life.”
      I thought that was really sad, but true. She was not an unhappy kid, far from it. She was very privileged and knew it. The only thing I thought was lacking about her is that maybe she wasnt able to be sensitive to other’s feeling, or was more selfish than others – maybe it’s just her and nothing about being an only child, but I thought at the time that it might be related.

      • Ange says:

        I have two brothers and I still feel like that. My brothers couldn’t give two shits about me or my life and I doubt we’ll have much contact once my parents go. Honestly if I was an only child I’d be in much the same boat but without an entire childhood getting teased, punched, humiliated and excluded behind me. I know which I’d prefer.

      • Andrea says:

        @Bibi I am an only child and will be 40 in March. When my father goes(I don’t have a close relationship with my mother), the witness to my life will be my friends of 20 and 30 years. They are more family than my parents honestly and I plan to have them around in my old age.

  8. EM says:

    I thought one of the K Trash storylines was that Khloe couldn’t have kids? Now it’s “you need to give your daughter a sibling.” Why? Just because you have multiple children doesn’t mean they will get along. My brother and I haven’t talked in probably 8 years.

  9. SarahCS says:

    “There’s so much weird only-child-shaming in this family and in American society these days.”

    YES. I mean where to even start with this mess. People should be left in peace to make their own reproductive choices first and foremost. The rest is nonsense, True can’t have friends who aren’t related to her? As we know she has a half-sibling and a ton of cousins already. What if she enjoys time by herself?

  10. BusyLizzy says:

    I was bullied at school because I am an only child. It baffles me to write this sentence because I don’t get the stigma and shaming around having just one child so your comment really resonated with me!

  11. Amy Too says:

    I really hate when people say they NEED to give their child a sibling. If you want another baby, say that. But if you are indifferent to having other children or don’t want more children, then for god’s sake don’t make a baby just for the sake of the first one. I think people center what they think their kids want/need way too much. Like buying huge houses out in the suburbs that are out of their price range, supposedly because their child, specifically, NEEDS the space and the yard. No, you want more space. Or you want more space FOR your child. And that’s fine! But stop phrasing it like your 3 year old is making all the decisions in the household. Your three year old that’s been living in an apartment probably doesn’t even realize that other people have much bigger homes with bigger yards or that it’s even possible to move house and have that. Kids adapt to what they’re given and they usually don’t think too much about what they COULD have but don’t. And kids don’t NEED siblings. Especially if they have a bunch of cousins and friends. YOU want another baby. YOU are romanticizing the idea of super close sisters who tell each other everything. Like Duchess Kate, despite having three kids, feels like she needs to “give Charlotte a sister.” Or people who say they bought a pet FOR their child because they think their kid should be given a kitty and NEEDS a puppy. Again, you want a puppy or kitten. You can say that. You think it would be cute to see your kid hanging out with the puppy or kitty. The child isn’t going to be taking care of the animal, it’s not “their” animal, so why do we need to frame it like you’re “giving” a puppy to your kid?

    This might all be semantics and I might not be making my point well at all and I think people are going to challenge me on it, which is fine, but there’s something about everything being so child-focused and child-centered lately that bugs me. I think it leads to kids who can be spoiled and think that their opinion is the most important one in the household. I totally get taking into account what your child needs and would like when you’re making a decision about housing, schools, siblings, or pets, but trying to spin all your decisions as something you’re just going along with because your toddler wants/needs it, seems off to me.

  12. NYStateofMind says:

    If their show is going off the air why are they still in the media? Are they going to start ANOTHER show? We tried to have ONE child, which we did and then were told if I had another it would risk my life. They come from a big family yes but there in no shame in having an only child. Plus everyone in their family is either divorced, never married or cheated on repeatedly. Taking advice from them seems unwise.

  13. Midge says:

    For all their money and fame, the Kardashian women sure do have some weakass baby daddies.

  14. grabbyhands says:

    Oh for gods sake – she HAS a sibling and it’s really gross the way they all pretend he doesn’t exist.

    PS I have a sibling and I can tell you it doesn’t automatically guarantee a loving and close relationship. The fetish people have about multiple children is creepy.

  15. Shirley May says:

    I’m so tired of all these thirst traps /stunt queens and Khloe is the most tragic of them all.
    I liked her when it all started bc she was different from all of them. Somewhere along the way she fell into a trap where she had to change her looks and personality.
    And her choice of men just make me wince.
