She’s the final sister in the triple Kardashian pregnancy drama to be welcoming her baby, as Kylie and Kim have already welcomed her daughter. But in only a few shorts months Khloe’s very own baby girl will arrive, and we know that we can’t wait!

Though Khloe was previously married for seven years to Lamar Odom, her new relationship with her soon-to-be baby daddy Tristan Thompson has moved very quickly in comparison. The pair knew each other for under a year before they got pregnant, and fans still didn’t know much about the NBA star. Unlike her past relationships, Khloe is being more private this time around.

From a secret pregnant baby mama, a canceled wedding, and a whole lot of other TV-worthy drama (and leaked videos!) there’s a lot fans don’t know about Khloe and Tristan’s relationship.

16 Tristan Left His Pregnant GF To Date Khloe


Most fans don’t really know the whole story of how Khloe and Tristan first began dating. It turns out that, not only did Tristan have a girlfriend when he met Khloe, but she was also pregnant.

So, yes, Tristan technically dumped his pregnant girlfriend so he could date a Kardashian. That isn’t’ a good way to start a relationship! Tristan’s ex Jordan Craig went on to welcome their son, Prince Thompson when he and Khloe were already together. Sources say that Khloe’s pregnancy is a sore spot for Jordan, and we can see why.

“Jordan is disappointed Khloe gets more of his attention than Tristan’s own son,” a source dished to Hollywood Life. “She is also sad that Tristan has moved on and disappeared so quickly from their romance. It hurts her every time she sees Khloe and Tristan looking so in love on TV or online. Jordan is also upset that Tristan is rarely around and not more involved with their son’s life.”

15 They Called Off Their First Wedding Over Money

Marriage and baby rumors had been following Tristan and Khloe long before they announced her pregnancy. Actually, just last summer, the media seemed confident that the couple was actually planning a wedding. However, one source at the time admitted that they called off their wedding due to disagreements on their prenuptial agreement. It’s definitely not a good thing to be arguing over money when you’re about to welcome a baby together!

“[Khloe and Tristan] are planning to tie the knot and move into a new home together, but hammering out their prenup is turning into a nightmare. Money is proving to be a major issue,” an insider said to OK! Magazine. “Khloe knows that Tristan only has a limited time pulling in a big salary from basketball, 10 more years tops. Whereas she and her mom think she’ll be raking in cash until the day she dies.”

They went on, “But what happens when she gets old and can’t do fitness shows and plug supplements anymore? They’ve toyed with a 10-year re-evaluation of the prenup terms but in the meantime, everyone is trying to predict the future.” Do you think these two will ever make it down the aisle?

14 Khloe Wants Custody Of Tristan’s Son

To say that the situation is complicated between Khloe, Tristan, and his other baby mama Jordan would be an understatement. Actually, this is seriously similar to the weird love triangle between Tyga, Kylie Jenner, and Blac Chyna (and we all know how that turned out).

But to make the situation even more difficult, sources say that Khloe is pushing to have Tristan’s 1-year old son Prince come live with them once she gives birth to his half-sister. Um, so that would mean Tristan and Khloe would have primary custody of the boy than his actual mom? That probably isn’t flying over too well with Jordan.

“Khloe wants Tristan’s son to live with them once their new baby arrives,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Khloe wants to be a big happy family, and she thinks it would be great for Tristan to spend more time with his son too. Khloe knows how important it is to grow up with a big family, with lots of siblings, so she thinks it would be great if her daughter had a brother right away.”

13 They’re Not Living Together Yet

Given that they’re expecting a baby together, no one would think it’s rushed if Khloe and Tristan were to already be living together. Actually, it’s kind of weird that the pair hasn’t moved in yet. Last summer, the celebs were spotted on numerous occasions house hunting in LA. But for some reason, they never went through with their plans to move in.

While most fans take this to mean there’s trouble in paradise, sources say that Khloe is totally fine living apart. “Khloe [Kardashian] is totally fine with Tristan [Thompson] renting his own place,” the insider told Hollywood Life. “She understands that he needs his own space and that he doesn’t want to be seen as ‘living off her.’” They added, “Both Tristan and Khloe are in it for the long run and committed to a future together.”

12 Tristan Already Chose His Team Over The Baby

Considering this is Khloe and Tristan’s first baby, it seems extra important that he be there for the birth of their little one. But sources say the NBA star has already made it clear that his team takes priority over the baby’s birth, even if that puts a strain on his and Khloe’s relationship.

“Tristan intends to be in the room when Khloe has their baby, but only one thing will keep him away and that would be a game,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life. “He has been injured, but if he is healthy and has a game his NBA commitments will take over and then he will head to the hospital afterward,” they went on. “The Cavs are on a playoff push and he intends to be there to help win a championship before witnessing his child’s birth.”

Would you be okay with this if you were in Khloe’s position?

11 They’re Fighting Over Khloe’s Travelling Schedule


It’s no surprise that Khloe has a hectic work schedule, even though she’s pregnant. The Kardashians sure know how to hustle! But evidently her traveling is starting to have an impact on her relationship, and it may also be taking a toll on her pregnancy.

Recently, the Kardashian sisters took a trip to Japan, but evidently, Tristan was against Khloe going. “Tristan was freaking out over Khloe’s trip to Japan. He pleaded with her to wait until after the baby was born or to wait until he was offseason, so he could go,” a source told Hollywood Life. “But she was being stubborn and was determined to make the trip with her sisters. Tristan knows how important this baby is to Khloe so he has been super protective of her since she became pregnant.”

However, maybe Khloe should have listened to her baby daddy since undisclosed issues concerning her pregnancy resulted in her visiting the Doctor’s while in Japan. Hopefully, Khloe cuts down on her traveling now that she’s almost due!

10 Tristan Doesn’t Acknowledge His First Child

As we’ve established, Tristan shares his 1-year old son Prince with his ex Jordan. Though insiders say he’s thrilled to be welcoming a second child with Khloe, it seems that Tristan is having trouble stepping up to the plate when it comes to his son. Fans have been especially put-off by Tristan’s behavior on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, in which it’s made to seem like he doesn’t have any other kids.

During a recent episode where Khloe discusses her pregnancy, she explained how Tristan is really hoping for a boy (though they’ve since revealed it’s going to be a girl!). “When you find out it’s the complete opposite, it’s just a shock,” she explained. “I just was convinced that I was having a boy, so to be having a girl, it’s just like, ‘ok, that wasn’t what I thought was going on.’”

However, fans weren’t impressed by how much Tristan wants a son, given the fact that he has one who he allegedly has little contact with. “Khloe really said Tristan wanted a boy as if he doesn’t have one already,” one fan tweeted. Another said, “Was his reaction like that with the baby he left for you.” Yikes!

9 They Can’t Stop Fighting With Each Other

Given that Khloe and Tristan have only been together for around a year, we’d expect them to still be in their Honeymoon stage. At least we wouldn’t expect them to be fighting all the time. But one source says that the two have been increasingly fighting with each other, and when it does it sounds like things can get scary. Maybe this is a sign that their romance isn’t built to last.

“Khloe and Tristan rarely fight, but when they do it’s pretty explosive,” the source told Hollywood Life. “Their relationship is super passionate, so yeah, when they fight, they really fight” They went on, “The main thing they fight about is the future. It drives Khloe crazy that Tristan won’t commit.” The insider says that the main thing the couple are arguing over is marriage, and it seems like Khloe might be more interested in sealing the deal than Tristan.

8 Fans Think The ‘Kardashian Curse’ Got To Tristan


It’s well-known fact that the Kardashian women are very, very powerful. But what about the men? Many of the romantic interests of the Kardashian ladies haven’t done too well after getting involved with the reality TV family.

Kanye had a breakdown, Lamar Odom overdosed, Kris Humphries is only known for one thing, and Scott Disick is the #1 Kardashian enemy. Even the original Rob Kardashian himself didn’t have a good wrap in the media thanks to the OJ Simpson case towards the end of his life. Many fans are now accusing Tristan of falling victim to the so-called ‘Kardashian Curse,’ using his recent poor luck on the basketball court as proof. Some fans went so far as to make an online petition encouraging Tristan to break up with his soon-to-be baby mama.

“It all has to do with the Kardashian Curse,” the online petition stated. “One of our most beloved athletes, Tristan Thompson, has taken it upon himself to date Khloe Kardashian and by doing so, invited the curse into Cleveland. The curse has been ruthless to the Cleveland Cavaliers. [..] This is no coincidence. This is the Kardashian Curse in play. And it needs to end now.”

7 Tristan’s Team Thinks Khloe Is Bad For Him

Not only do some fans think Khloe is bad for Tristan’s career, but evidently his team thinks the same as well. The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly had a tough time adjusting since Tristan began dating the reality star, and they’ve even gone so far as encourage him to call things off.

Team captain LeBron James was evidently furious after Tristan brought KUWTK cameras into practice. “LeBron was pissed about outsiders coming into his work home and sticking a camera into his face — that’s so not cool,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Apparently the camera crew had permission to film, but not from him or the rest of the team.”

They continued, “All of the Cavs have been roasting Tristan dating Khloe, pretty much from day one, but LeBron has been particularly scornful. He regularly ‘jokes’ about the Kardashian curse, and warns Tristan that his career will go the same way as Lamar and Kris Humphries if he isn’t careful.”

6 Tristan Feels Embarrassed By Khloe

Evidently all the pressure Tristan has been feeling from fans and his team to break-up with Khloe has been getting to him. Sources say the athlete feels embarrassed that Khloe is so adamant to publicize their relationship, both on her reality show and social media. It’s caused him to grow more distant from her, even though they’re months away from welcoming their little one.

“Tristan is embarrassed by the distraction and tension created by the KUWTK camera crew,” an insider dished to Hollywood Life. “He loves Khloe and wants to make her happy, but he had no idea the cameras would cause so much attention and create drama within his team.”

The source added, “Part of Tristan loves being in the spotlight, but he promised […] the team that Khloe and her reality show would not be a distraction […] He can’t keep both his teammates and his girlfriend Khloe happy. Tristan feels he is in a lose-lose situation.” Sounds like Tristan may have a tough decision to make soon!

5 Tristan Feels Threatened By Khloe’s Ex-Hubby

Before Khloe found her soul mate in Tristan, there was Lamar Odom. Khloe and Lamar were married a mere few months after they began dating in 2009, but things went downhill fast. Lamar has admitted to using substances and cheating on Khloe during the entirety of their marriage. The couple officially divorced in 2016, though they had already separated several years prior.

However, despite Khloe clearly moving on, it hasn’t stopped Lamar from talking about her to the media. There’s a lot of public speculation that the NBA player may still have feelings for his ex-wife, and evidently, Tristan is beginning to feel threatened by it. “Tristan Thompson is annoyed Lamar Odom seems to be still hung up on Khloe,” a source said to Hollywood Life. “Tristan wishes Lamar would stop talking about Khloe because they have been over for a long time.” Hey, can you blame Tristan?

4 Her Intense Workouts Are Scaring Tristan

Khloe has become known for her intense workouts and dieting ever since her major body transformation following her split from ex-hubby Lamar Odom. It’s no surprise that the celeb has continued to update fans on her fitness routine while pregnant. Some fans have expressed concern that her intensive workouts could pose harm to her pregnancy, and it turns out that Tristan is getting scared about the same thing.

A source admits that Khloe’s working out has become a topic of contention between the expecting parents. “Tristan is getting a little nervous about Khloe getting after it during her daily workouts,” an insider said, Life & Style reports. “He wants his lady to take care of herself and their baby, so he is pleading with her to slow down. Tristan has made it clear to Khloe that he loves her very much and it is ok for her to enjoy her pregnancy and not focus so much on her fitness.”

3 Khloe May Have Gotten Pregnant To Get Engaged


The Kardashians are known for going all-out when it comes to weddings (we’re looking at you Kim!). Khloe was previously married to NBA star Lamar Odom. Though their wedding was glam by normal standards, the couple rushed to put the wedding together after only a few months of dating (and an even shorter engagement), so it’s safe to say it wasn’t the wedding of Khloe’s dreams.

Now, some fans think Koko may have purposefully gotten pregnant just so she can have the elaborate wedding she’s always dreamed of. While that seems a bit far-fetched, some fans remain convinced that Khloe planned her pregnancy so Tristan would have no choice but to propose. “Khloe is ready to go all-out,” an insider told InTouch, adding the wedding will take place in the summer of 2019. “The whole thing will cost about $2 million,” they said.

2 Khloe Still Texts Her Ex Husband

What’s the biggest sign you’re still hung up on an ex? If you’re still talking to them! There’s no denying that Khloe and Lamar had a tumultuous relationship while married, and it was probably equally as tough to move on following their divorce. But, even though she’s having a baby with another guy, Khloe may not be 100% over her ex-husband.

This past August, Lamar admitted that he still texts Khloe (and hinted he’s hopeful they could get back together). “I just texted her yesterday,” Lamar told InTouch Magazine. “I don’t think she hates me even though she has every reason to.” The celeb was referring to the incidents the transpired right before their divorce. Before it was official, Lamar suffered an overdose at a brothel, and Khloe came rushing to his side after he fell into a coma.

Though many thought this meant the two might be reconciled, it wasn’t long before Khloe met Tristan, and the rest is history.
