This 1 Person Inspired Khloé Kardashian to Name Her Daughter True

The Kardashian-Jenner family is easily one of the country’s most popular families. We’ve watched them grow from young adults to entreprenuers, mothers, and millionaires (or billionaires). Last year, Khloé Kardashian welcomed her first daughter, True Thompson, with ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson. And one person helped her choose her daughter’s name.

Kardashian had wanted kids for a long time

Years ago on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kardashian said on several occasions that she wanted to have kids. Even back when Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner ran their children’s clothing boutique, Smooch, Kardashian always had babies on the brain. When she married Lamar Odom, the two talked frequently about having kids, but when Odom’s drug addiction and unfaithfulness damaged their relationship, they were left with almost no choice but to divorce, despite how much they still cared about each other. Then, Kardashian, who had dated around a bit, met Tristan Thompson, and the two found out they were expecting.

Kardashian and True’s father are no longer together

A lot has happened since Kardashian and Thompson first learned they were having a baby. While things seemed to be going well between them during the pregnancy, and Kardashian was thrilled she would be a mother, there was infidelity happening behind the scenes. Only a few days before Kardashian gave birth to True, footage leaked of Thompson bringing another woman back to his hotel room. The two worked for almost a year to patch things up, but this past February, rumors surfaced that Thompson had cheated on Kardashian once more with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods. Both Woods and Thompson are seemingly out of the family’s life for good.

Grandma MJ was the one who inspired Kardashian to name her daughter “True”

Despite everything that happened, Kardashian loves her daughter more than anything. And when it came to naming her little girl, she knew she wanted something with a “T” so the baby’s initials would be “TT” the same way Kardashian’s initials are “KK.” Kardashian has always been very close with Kris Jenner’s mom, Grandma MJ, so when MJ suggested the name “True,” Kardashian instantly fell in love with it. The name also happens to be Kardashian’s great-grandfather’s first name and grandfather’s middle name, so it holds much more significance in the family than just its first initial. 

Kardashian has said that Thompson is a good father, despite all of the drama  

With everything that has happened between Kardashian and Thompson, nobody would wonder why she might want to keep her daughter as far from him as possible. However, despite all of the drama, Kardashian has insisted that Thompson is a good father to their daughter. Even though his cheating video leaked days before she gave birth, Kardashian still wanted him in the hospital room because she didn’t want to take that moment away from her daughter. And they appear to co-parent well, although it looks like they won’t be getting back together any time soon. Regardless, as long as Kardashian is happy, we’re happy.
