Khloe Kardashian reportedly named her 9-month-old son Tatum Robert Thompson

Kylie Jenner waited months and months to reveal her son’s name. When it turned out that Stormi’s little brother was named Aire, most of us just rolled our eyes and moved on. Will it be the same with Khloe Kardashian? Khloe welcomed a son via surrogacy last summer. She and Tristan Thompson organized the surrogacy while they were secretly together (and telling everyone they weren’t together), then they broke up again in the middle of the pregnancy. Tristan and Khloe already had True, who is already five years old, and there were a lot of unkind (but funny) guesses for this baby’s name. Well, now we have the name: Tatum Robert Thompson.

The name of Khloe Kardashian’s baby boy can finally be revealed nine months after he was born. Reality TV star Khloe, 38, has remained tight-lipped about what she’s called the boy she had via surrogate with on-again, off-again beau Tristan Thompson in July last year. But The U.S. Sun has been exclusively told that he has been named Tatum Robert.

A source tells The U.S. Sun that Khloe resisted nudges from her family, especially her mom Kris Jenner, to give the first name of Robert to the baby after Khloe’s late father Robert Kardashian and brother Rob. Instead she decided to use Robert as the boy’s second name in honor of her lawyer dad, who passed away almost 20 years ago in September 2003, and her beloved younger brother, according to the source.

The insider said: “There was talk about whether it should be Tatum Robert or should it be Robert Tatum. Some in the family were leaning more towards Robert, because it honors her dad and her brother. Kris in particular was keen for the baby to be called Robert and was steering Khloe towards that. It took Khloe a little while to settle on the name but ultimately she went with Tatum Robert, which is in keeping with Tristan and True’s names starting with a T. Khloe wanted a name that was kind of unusual but not too out there and also keeping with the T theme.”

The T name theme… well, one of Tristan’s other baby-mothers used the same T-theme. His other sons are named Theo and Prince – Theo is the son he had with Maralee Nichols, and I’m not sure Tristan has even MET Theo. He also seems like an absent father in Prince’s life. Anyway, I dislike the name Tatum? There were other T-names which are, imo, a lot better. I bet Khloe was mad that Maralee took the name Theo. Khloe could have gone with Troy, Tobias, Tyler, Timothy, Troy, Titus or even just “Tate,” which is better than Tatum. But hey, not my baby. I also find it weird that Kris was apparently leaning on Khloe to name the kid Robert? Kim and Kourtney didn’t use “Robert” for their sons’ names. Mason Disick’s middle name is Dash (which was Robert Kardashian’s nickname, but still). Saint West doesn’t have a middle name, and Psalm’s middle name is Ye (I had to look all of this up).

    LOL named after Jayson? I mean, who is going to look at the son of an NBA basketball player and NOT think that??? I’m into it though.

    PS we have two fish named Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown lol.

    • Lightpurple says:

      My first thought as well, the son of a NBA player who was a teammate of Jayson Tatum. And why do I need to know the reactions of Jaylen, Marcus, and Blake?

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      Of all the T names available, she goes with a name most NBA fans are going to arch a brow and say “after, Jayson Tatum, haha!”. Just inviting messiness.

  2. Moxylady says:

    Why on earth does she keep having babies with this man. Why do they all keep having so many children?
    And I know all children are different, but having only two – the immense amount of emotional support and help processing events and situations is a full time job. But then didn’t Kourtney tell her daughter via Skype she got engaged rhen hang up on her and when she started to cry? So. Different parenting styles I guess.

  3. Amy Bee says:

    So close! I was sure Khloe was going to name the baby Tristan. But she did give him a name beginning with T which is still a tribute to Tristan. It makes me wonder if she and Tristan were even broken up when the baby was born.

    • Josephine says:

      I really, really do not understand why that child has his father’s last name. It seems that they’ve worked out a deal for him to be a sperm donor, which is fine, but I would not attach his last name to my child. I guess she wants that illusion that they are partners.

  4. lassie says:

    I know this is a noncomment, but there’s no way that she is an active mom with those talons. I can’t even imagine trying to change a diaper with those things.

    Poopy nails.

    • Kokiri says:

      I agree, she’s not an active mom. The kids are props.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Not to be Khloe apologist, but there are PLENTY of women who actively parent their kids while maintaining long nails. And just like when you change a diaper with hella short nails, you wash your hands afterward. A lot of folks keep a nail brush nearby which helps, too.

      Khloe’s entitlement and need to be constantly available for her stage 5 clinger antics are likely more of a deterrent to her active/conscious parenting than her fingernails.

  5. Kokiri says:

    That baby looks so scared, like he has no idea who this woman with the horrible nails is. Like he’s never seen her before being forced into a picture.

    • molly says:

      I don’t know what Khloe thought that picture was doing, but it’s giving, “neither of these children know who I am and they’re frightened” vibes.

      The Kardashian Mom brand is so strange. They got famous for being enviable and unattainable. The appeal was that they looked and lived like other worldly people.

      Except now they’re in their late 30s and early 40s. They have kids, just like their audience has kids. We know what it looks like to change diapers and snuggle kids who see you as their whole world, and we KNOW it can’t be done with claws and blank stares like that.

      I don’t doubt these women love their kids, but “glam mom who’s too busy being famous to properly love on her baby” isn’t the W she thinks it is.

    When I look at Grimes children names and then at Tatum.. I think “What a normal name!”

    • Noodle says:

      Tatum is not an uncommon name in my community. That said, I’ve heard it only as a girl’s name, not a boy’s. Regardless, I like the name.

  7. girl_ninja says:

    I hope these kids turn out okay. I particularly find this one annoying because she is such a delusional bully. Awful people the lot of them.

  8. kelleybelle says:

    She is gross. The children are not. Everything about her is a result of a surgeon’s knife and obscene amounts of money. Total turnoff.

  9. jferber says:

    I love Jayson Tatum. I doubt it, but she could be throwing shade at Tristan because Jayson is SUCH a hands-on dad with his adorable son Deuce. I’ve watched so many cute videos of those two together. The love and devotion are complete. I bet Khloe wishes Tristan were a dad like that. I really do hate that Tristan shuns his son Theo. It’s disgusting. It’s not the baby’s fault Tristan can’t keep it in his pants.

  10. Hannah says:

    I don’t know what the daughter’s name is but she’s cute as a button. Both these kiddies are giving me “who TF is this lady?”

  11. Murphy says:

    Well yeah she wasn’t going to give him Robert as a first name, her father’s name is Alex.

  12. Escape says:

    Terrible name! Sounds so hick.
