How Many Children Does Khloe Kardashian’s Boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, Have?
Whether you follow Keeping Up with the Kardashians or you just know Khloe through the media, the trials of her pregnancy were well-documented. We remember how excited Khloe was when she first announced she was expecting a baby — and fans even had faith that her relationship with NBA player Tristan Thompson would be long-lasting. Given her complicated past with Lamar Odom, Khloe’s fan base was confident Tristan would step up to the plate and be the best father and partner he could be. But everything came to a screeching halt when photos and videos of Tristan cheating were leaked.
Nowadays, Khloe and Tristan are still keeping in touch, and several reports state they’re better than ever. But baby True isn’t the only child Tristan has to care for. Here’s how many kids he has, and other details on his current status with the Kardashian.
He’s allegedly an ‘amazing father’ to Khloe’s baby, True
Tristan certainly was not the best boyfriend to Khloe during her pregnancy, but when it comes to their daughter, it’s allegedly a different story. Khloe gave birth on April 12 to her first child. As one source exclusively told Us Weekly, “Tristan has been an amazing father to True,” and the source also added that he “really stepped it up” when it came to her needs and his responsibilities as a dad.
The publication noted Khloe was also still very much in love with Tristan back in May, and though the Kardashian/Jenner clan were wary of their relationship continuing, they were trying their best to be supportive for the good of the family. As for what Khloe has had to say about Tristan and his fathering abilities, Elite Daily also notes she called him a “great daddy.” On Snapchat, she said, “Shout out to all the good dads out there.”
He also has a son, Prince, with former girlfriend Jordan Craig
Tristan has had some practice with his fathering abilities before True was born. In Touch Weekly reminds us the NBA player had a son who was born in 2016 with his girlfriend, Jordan Craig. Though the couple has never publicly discussed their breakup, many fans of Jordan seem to think Khloe was the reason for their split to begin with. Reports claim Jordan was five months pregnant when she and Tristan split, and he wasted no time before dating Khloe, either.
It seems Jordan also has different opinions of Tristan’s fathering skills, too. In Touch Weekly notes a source told Hollywood Life, “Jordan feels totally neglected by Tristan ever since Khloe had her baby. With the NBA playoffs happening and Tristan being a new father again he has had zero time for their toddler, Prince Oliver. … She gets how busy Tristan is right now, but she still wishes he made time not for her, but for the child they share.”
Has Tristan made any additional time for Prince over the last few months? It seems he may have, as People notes he did post an adorable photo of both baby True and 18-month-old Prince holding hands.
Could more kids be on the way for Tristan?
There’s no doubt Khloe has always wanted to be a mom — and a source told Entertainment Tonight that since Khloe waited until her mid-30s to have kids, she may continue to have babies on the brain. “It was a difficult journey [for Khloe] to get pregnant the first time, so she’s aware it may take some time again,” the source began. “That being said, she’s not putting any pressure on herself or overthinking it. It will happen when it happens. [She’s] not not trying.”
The source also mentioned that Khloe and Tristan are both in a really good place with each other — so it’s very possible that another child for Tristan could be on the way in the future. We’ll have to wait and see.
