Khloe Kardashian is here to keep you up with her growing family.
Three weeks after news broke that she welcomed a son with Tristan Thompsonvia surrogate, the Kardashians star and mom to 4-year-old daughter True Thompson addressed her latest baby news in an interview with Elle.
When asked how she’s doing “as a mom of two,” Khloe said, “I know it’s cliché, but I love everything, even the hard parts.”
She said her kids “challenge me as a person,” so “being able to shape little people into really incredible big people is an honor and a gift.”
Khloe continued, “We have to take those roles seriously, especially in today’s day and age, with how much accessibility children have and the information they’re exposed to so young. It’s super scary, but I take my job very seriously. I love it so much.”
This was the first time Khloe personally spoke out about her new baby boy with Tristan, who was hit with a paternity lawsuit last year before test results confirmed that he did father son Theo, 8 months, with Maralee Nichols. (Tristan is also dad to son Prince, 5, with Jordan Craig.)
A source previously told E! News that the Good American founder was keeping the pregnancy a secret “to protect surrogate privacy and safety and to protect her mental health from judgement from the public as a result of Tristan’s actions.”
In fact, Khloe was so tight-lipped about baby No. 2 that not everyone in her inner circle knew about it when the news broke and she was “forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce” through a statement from her rep, the insider noted.
In a statement to E! News on June 13, a representative for Khloe said: “We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.”
The baby news came six months after Tristan issued a public apology to Khloeafter paternity test results confirmed that he did father Theo with Maralee, who sued the athlete last year for child-rearing costs.
“Khloe, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote on social media at the time. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.”
