Khloé Kardashian Has Earned Huge Respect for How She Co-Parents With Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian isn’t always known for making the best decisions. She’s offended people on Instagram — more than once. She’s not very adept at living in the spotlight, but that hasn’t dampened her desire to be famous. And of course, her dating life has been something of a trainwreck, especially when it comes to her daughter’s dad, Tristan Thompson. Despite all that, fans and detractors alike admit that she deserves credit for the way she’s handled co-parenting with Thompson, especially considering everything he’s put her through. 

Things soured quickly for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

The couple had been dating for about a year and a half when Kardashian announced they were expecting a baby. At the time, Kardashian could not have been happier in the relationship.

She once gushed: “I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”

Sadly, it soon became clear that she wasn’t the only one he was making happy. Just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter, True, the news broke that Thompson had cheated on her multiple times.

They seemed to work through this shocking revelation, and the relationship might have survived if it hadn’t happened again. Before True was even a year old it came out that Thompson had been playing around yet again, this time with close family friend Jordyn Woods. 

Khloé Kardashian was surprisingly mature

Considering the fact that Thompson had hurt Kardashian so badly, she handled the break-up with remarkable grace. She welcomed him at True’s first birthday party, and she continues to say positive things about him to the media.

She’s spoken about how well her parents navigated their divorce, and that they never made their kids carry the weight of their feelings. That seems to be Kardashian’s goal too, saying that True needs Thompson in her life.

“I know her dad is a great person, I know how much he loves her and cares about her so I want him to be there,” she said.

Fans are proud of her for putting True first

People can’t help but admire how well Kardashian is prioritizing True’s wellbeing above her own hurt feelings. A recent Reddit discussion centered on how this “makes me see Khloe in a whole new light.” 

One fan commented, “I respect that she finds value in making sure True’s dad is a part of her life. It really does make sense that Khloe wants her daughter to grow up in a similar environment that she did, where her parents are kind towards each other.”

Another commenter agreed that it was “very honorable of her. . . all parents should be so considerate and mature.”

But they do worry about this one thing

Some fans are a little worried, though. Thompson has made it clear that he still has feelings for Kardashian with suggestive, fawning comments on her Instagram posts. They are supportive of the two having a positive co-parenting relationship, but they hope that she’s not being generous because they’re renewing their romance.

After all, Kardashian has already forgiving Thompson more than once, so is she falling for his act again?

One person pointed out: “I think it’s cool they are able to work together in that way. But I do hope that Khloe doesn’t get back together with Tristan.”

Others chimed in, saying: “Oh yes she will get back together with him” and “They take this coparenting thing so far that the being walked over just continues.”

Fans will have to wait and see if Kardashian’s mature treatment of Thompson is for healthy reasons or just more of the same relationship mess. Whatever happens, hopefully, both parents will continue to put True first.
