Khloé Kardashian and ex Tristan Thompson have officially welcomed baby number two!

According to People, the baby boy was delivered via surrogate earlier this week. “Khloé is on cloud nine. Getting a sibling for True has been such a journey. She is very excited to be a mom again,” a source close to Kardashian told People. Adding that, “Khloé hasn’t shared a name yet. She is taking her time with the name. She wants it to be just right.”

Kardashian’s initial pregnancy announcement in mid-July came as a shock to fans as Kardashian had previously ended her relationship with Thompson in January after another report of infidelity surfaced. Sources would later confirm that Thompson had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols in December. Since the news broke, many sources have confirmed that the child was conceived in November before Kardashian had any knowledge of the affair.

Despite their rocky relationship, Kardashian and Thompson continue to co-parent their daughter True, 4, and Kardashian had previously expressed her wish to see True as a big sister.

The decision to pursue surrogacy was made after doctors shared with Kardashian that she would likely be unable to carry a baby herself again. “I’m not gonna get into specifics on-camera," Kardashian said in a KUWTK episode, “but they said it’s like an 80-something percent chance that I will miscarry. I almost miscarried with True at the beginning. But I didn’t know that was like a lingering thing.”

“This is all really shocking to me,” Kardashian added. “All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, and I just seem to be running into more and more roadblocks. It’s really hard for me to digest.”

Now mom to a healthy baby boy Kardashian looks forward to co-parenting another child with Thompson. “Just like they do with True, Khloé will co-parent the baby with Tristan,” a source told People. “Tristan is the dad and Khloé wants him involved as much as possible. He is great with True.”

Our best wishes to Kardashian and Thompson on their co-parenting journey!
