Khloe Kardashian asked TV producers to keep her baby news private because of her ‘mental health’
The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star welcomed ex Tristan Thompson’s second child via surrogate earlier this year and she was filmed giving birth to her sister Kim and producers of the family’s latest TV show, ‘The Kardashians’ , who broke the news It was revealed that Tristan had another baby with another woman.
In one emotional scene, Khloe was seen breaking down in tears as she explained her dilemma to the producers, saying, “When you guys found out that Tristan was having a baby with someone else… there was just something I didn’t want to talk about.”
“Tristan and I are — I don’t even know if I want to say ‘Tristan and I.’ I’m having another baby and obviously it’s just very private and I don’t want it to come out now because I want to protect my mental wellbeing and that of the surrogate as well.”
“But, um, yeah, it was just a lot going through it all at once.”
Khloe added that having another baby is supposed to be an “amazing” time in her life, but this time she’s had a “different experience” and accepting the “clock is ticking” and eventually having to reveal everything.
Khloe was also seen breaking the news to her sister Kim over the phone, beginning by saying, “I have a problem.”
She goes on to explain that they underwent an “embryo transfer” “a few days ago.”
Kim looks shocked and covers her mouth as she digests the tremendous news.
The episode also focuses on the baby’s birth in August, revealing that the little boy arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles via surrogate on July 28, and Khloe held her son for the first time.
Khloe and Tristan’s on/off relationship fell apart again last year after it was revealed he had been unfaithful and she decided she wanted Kim in the delivery room instead of him for the baby’s birth – while Tristan was later allowed to meet the newborn.
Khloe added that she hopes the birth “would close that chapter and be done with that trauma.”
She added: “I’m so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift to have. Since December [when Tristan’s cheating scandal was revealed] There was this dark cloud appearing over me. Every day I feel depressed and sad and now that my son is here I can go ahead and enjoy it.”
Khloe and Tristan are also parents to a daughter, True, who was born in 2018.
