How Will Khloe Kardashian Co-Parent With Tristan Thompson?

The Kardashian family is never out of the headlines for long, but throughout the last couple of weeks, they have been in the news in a big way. Khloe Kardashian was the subject of a dramatic public breakup with her boyfriend, and the father of her young daughter, Tristan Thompson, after it was revealed that he had cheated on her with longtime family friend Jordyn Woods.

Numerous questions have popped up regarding how Kardashian and Thompson would be able to co-parent their child in light of the dramatic circumstances, and fans are wondering how their favorite Kardashian will move on.

Kardashian and Thompson’s relationship

For years, fans followed along as Kardashian struggled with the question of whether or not she would even be able to have children. During her marriage to Lamar Odom, which ultimately ended in divorce following the revelations of his drug addiction and infidelity, Kardashian revealed that some doctors had informed her that she could have problems conceiving. 

When Kardashian started dating Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star Tristan Thompson in 2016, fans were hopeful that this time, she could get the happy ending she deserved. When the news of their pregnancy broke, it seemed like a perfect fairy tale. However, the fairy tale was brought to an abrupt end when shortly before Kardashian gave birth, the news broke that Thompson had cheated on her with numerous women. Determined to try and keep her family together, Kardashian resolved to try and work things out with Thompson for the sake of their new daughter, True Thompson. Following the news of Thompson’s indiscretions with Woods, however, Kardashian finally pulled the plug on their nearly three-year relationship.

What lessons will Kardashian learn from her sister?

The situation between Thompson and Kardashian is unique, but it is certainly not the first time a member of the Kardashian family has broken up with a significant other. Kourtney Kardashian, the oldest sister, was in a long-term relationship with her boyfriend Scott Disick, which resulted in three children before they broke up in 2015. 

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have managed to co-parent their three young children successfully over the years, even though they have both gone on to have relationships with other people. Surely Khloe Kardashian will be able to take a page from her older sister’s book in terms of dealing with her child’s father and still providing a positive atmosphere for little True Thompson.

Does Kardashian enjoy being a mother?

One thing has remained constant since the birth of her daughter – the immense joy that Kardashian takes in being a mother. She loves sharing photos of her baby on social media, and fans delight in True Thompson’s wide variety of outfits, including matching headwraps and bows. Reportedly, even though Khloe Kardashian was unprepared for how challenging it can be to parent a child, she is totally up for the challenge and delights in both working and spending time with her daughter.

For years, Kardashian was known as the “fun” member of the family, well known for her outspoken personality and penchant for practical jokes. It’s likely that she brings this playful attitude and sense of fun to her role as a mother. 

In whatever incarnation her relationship with Tristan Thompson might take, her most important role is that of a mother and one that Khloe Kardashian takes very seriously. Hopefully, in the coming weeks and months, the challenge of co-parenting will become easier and easier as the pain of Thompson’s betrayal lessens. After all, Kardashian will always have the love of her baby daughter, True Thompson, and the unwavering support of her family.
