The suspense is at last lifted! For a staggering nine months, Khloe Kardashian has had her followers on tenterhooks, and today we are thrilled to exclusively disclose her baby boy’s name. Give us a drumroll… Introducing Tatum Robert! Continue reading to uncover more about Khloe’s second bundle of joy with her intermittent beau, Tristan Thompson, and the significance of his name.
The “T” Tradition Continues
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their baby boy via surrogate in July last year. Since then, Khloe has remained tight-lipped about her son’s name, only admitting that it would begin with a “T” like her firstborn daughter True. The mom-of-two has finally unveiled her child’s full name, and we couldn’t be more excited!
A Tribute to the Kardashian Clan
Khloe Kardashian’s choice of the name Tatum Robert pays tribute to her late father, Robert Kardashian, and her beloved younger brother, Rob. While there was some debate within the family about whether the baby should be named Robert Tatum or Tatum Robert, ultimately, Khloe decided to honor her father and brother with the middle name.
Family Drama: A Kardashian Tradition
It’s no surprise that there was some drama surrounding the naming of Khloe’s son, especially after her sister Kylie Jenner changed the name of her baby boy from Wolf to Aire. According to insiders, Khloe’s mom, Kris Jenner, was keen on the name Robert but was met with resistance from Khloe. In the end, Khloe chose a unique name that fits her family’s “T” theme perfectly.
With the addition of Tatum Robert, Tristan Thompson is now a dad to four children. He shares daughter True, five, with Khloe, and sons Theo, 16 months, with Maralee Nichols, and Prince, six, with model ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig. Despite the paternity scandal that unfolded after Theo’s birth, Khloe and Tristan still went on to have Tatum, even though they are no longer a couple.
Last month, Khloe gave fans a tiny bit of information about her son’s name during her appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show. She shared that she had chosen a name starting with a “T” but hadn’t announced it yet. Khloe also revealed that she wanted to “meet” her son and “feel him out” before settling on a name.
The Kardashians: A Family Affair
Fans of the Kardashian family can expect to learn more about baby Tatum Robert in the upcoming season of The Kardashians, set to premiere on Hulu on May 25. Khloe revealed that she had been waiting for the show’s premiere to announce her son’s name officially.
Khloe Kardashian lovingly described her baby boy as a “little chunk,” adding that she “wouldn’t have it any other way.” She shared that Tatum is a quiet and happy baby, just like her daughter True. With such adorable descriptions, we can’t wait to see more of baby Tatum!
