Khloe Kardashian May ‘Borrow Some Sperm’ From Tristan Thompson and Fans Aren’t Pleased

Khloé Kardashian is front and center in the brand-new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The reality star’s ongoing relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, has been a subject of heavy debate in the past.

In the latest season of the show, people are learning even more about what goes on between the two. In a recent episode, Kardashian revealed that she might be interested in having another baby —she and Thompson are parents to a daughter named True — and that she is eyeing her former boyfriend as the father. Fans reacted immediately, and the internet is still abuzz with the news. 

When did Khloé Kardashian start dating Tristan Thompson?

Kardashian has always had a troubled personal life. Her marriage to Lamar Odom was plagued with speculation about drug abuse and addiction, and the two ended up separating in 2013.

Fans were elated when, in late 2016, Kardashian was spotted with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. Kardashian and Thompson seemed to connect right away, and in short order, the two were seen vacationing together and hitting up all the hottest clubs in Los Angeles. 

In December 2017, Kardashian confirmed that she and Thompson were expecting a baby. However, all was not well in paradise.

When Khloé Kardashian was over eight months pregnant, the news broke that Thompson had been spotted with multiple other women, apparently cheating on his pregnant girlfriend. Kardashian gave birth to the couple’s daughter only days after the scandal broke. She also made the decision to try to maintain her relationship with Thompson, in spite of the cheating. 

Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian have been co-parenting successfully

After the birth of True in April 2018, Kardashian and Thompson seemed intent on working on their relationship. She clearly thrived as a mother and posted a lot of sweet images of her baby girl to social media.

Still, in February 2019, multiple outlets claimed Thompson had, once again, cheated on Kardashian — this time, with her sister, Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods. In the fallout of the scandal, Kardashian and Thompson finally broke up.

Since their breakup just over one year ago, Kardashian and Thompson have been co-parenting their daughter relatively peacefully. Although Kardashian has admitted in interviews that it isn’t always easy to work so closely with Thompson.

She has said: “I want to show my daughter that it’s okay and it’s a beautiful thing to also forgive her dad. He’s a great person. Maybe him and I weren’t compatible or whatever in that way, but that’s okay.”

In a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kardashian discussed the possibility of having another baby. What’s more, she is considering Thompson as the future child’s father — although not necessarily in the traditional sense.

Thompson agreed with Kardashian that “True does need a sibling,” which seemed to make Kardashian happy.

“I might get some embryos and get a sibling,” Kardashian said. “I might need to borrow some sperm or get some from you. We’ll figure that out later.”

Even if Kardashian hasn’t made any decisions regarding the conception of her future child, fans on Twitter were definitely unified in their opinion. A few fans claimed that her “self-worth is nonexistent,” and that if she wants another child she should “pursue a healthy relationship.”

Some Twitter fans even stated that they believe Kardashian is already pregnant and is just setting up a pregnancy reveal for later on in the season. All in all, it seems as though no one is really on board with Kardashian’s idea of using Thompson for another child. 

In the most recent episode, Kardashian tells her sisters that Thompson has mostly agreed to be her donor.

“He has to sign legal paperwork that he would just be my sperm donor,” she explains. “But you never know — like if what in three years I get married to someone and I’m like, ‘You know what? I don’t want that.’ ”

“After my doctor’s appointment, I talked to Tristan, because if you can create embryos and do all the DNA testing, I do think that’s the smarter choice,” she added. “But it’s weird, because Tristan and I, we’re not together. I don’t know which way to go.”

During a FaceTime conversation with Kardashian, Thompson agrees to her request.

“I’m open to doing that and down to doing that,” he says. “Whatever is going to make you feel comfortable and feel safest, that’s what I’m on board with.”

“I’m all on board to however I can help,” Tristan adds. “When I come out during the summertime, we can do it and go from there.”
