An insider told CelebHomes that the pair “have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters,” adding, “The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloé and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December.” 

This December Maralee Nicks gave birth to a son she said was fathered by Tristan, who she sued for pregnancy and child-related expenses months earlier. Tristan later confirmed that the baby, who she named Theo, is his son and apologized to Khloé on social media.

Tristan’s paternity scandal is also the reason why Khloé has kept information about their little boy on the way under tight wraps.  

“Khloé kept the pregnancy a secret to protect surrogate privacy and safety,” a second insider exclusively told CelebHomes. Tristan’s actions were intended to protect Khloe’s mental health and prevent her from being judged by the public. 

No matter what, both Khloé and Tristan are committed to raising their little ones together.  

“We’re doing a great job and I’m really grateful that we’re able to,” Khloé told CelebHomes News’ Daily Pop in 2020. “I am from a family where…just because someone isn’t with you doesn’t mean that they have to be rude, or out of your life.” 

Elle added: “You know what? When you don’t have so many people to help you, it’s great that you have your own like. He’s essentially your partner and True’s father. He is my partner, True’s dad. I now need him more.
