Khloe Kardashian reveals son’s name begins with a T to match True and Tristan… but is NOT Travis, the name of Kourtney’s husband and Kylie’s beau
- Season two of The Kardashians premiered on Hulu and Disney+ on Thursday
- The episode saw Khloe welcome a baby boy born via surrogate in July
- The beauty also dropped a hint about the new baby’s name
- She said that the child’s moniker would start with a T like True’s
And during the episode the 38-year-old siren also dropped a hint about her little boy’s name. Like Khloe’s daughter True, aged four, and ex Tristan, the child will have a name that begins with a T, she shared.
The child was conceived in November 2021 and born in late July.

Before the little boy was born, Khloe mulled over names, as will be seen in Thursday’s premiere of The Kardashians on Hulu, according to E! News.
‘It is going to start with a T,’ Khloe said during the episode.
‘I mean, that’s really the only names I’ve been looking at.’
Her momager Kris Jenner then offered up several names that start with a T before adding Travis, which is the first name of Kourtney Kardashian’s husband Travis Barker and also the first name of Kylie Jenner’s beau Travis Scott.

Kris said, ‘We can name him Travis and then just have an easy three.’
The explosive episode featured footage of their son’s birth via surrogate on July 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, as well as the emotional moment that Khloe was able to hold the newborn for the first time.
Yet the moment was tinged with sadness, with Khloe confessing that she felt as though a ‘dark cloud was looming over’ after it was revealed that the father of her children had been unfaithful yet again.
The arrival of the former couple’s second child came shortly after Khloe discovered that Tristan had cheated on her yet again with Houston-based personal trainer Maralee Nichols – with whom he had just welcomed another child.
As a result, Khloe decided that her older sister Kim Kardashian should be in the delivery room instead of Tristan, 31 – though he was later invited to the hospital to meet his newborn.

Despite the unconventional and heartbreaking circumstances, Khloe said the arrival of her son allowed her to officially ‘close that chapter and be done with this trauma.’
Khloe also opened up about her decision to have a second child with Tristan, explaining that she was encouraged by the NBA star to go through with an embryo transfer ‘around Thanksgiving’ last year.
Just a week later, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Tristan was expecting a child with fitness model Nichols. She gave birth to a son named Theo in early December.
Speaking in a confessional after their son was born, Khloe said: ‘I am so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift that we’re able to have.
‘Ever since December [when Tristan’s infidelity was revealed] there’s been this dark cloud looming over me. Every single day, I’ve been feeling depressed and sad, and now that my son is here, I get to move on, and I get to enjoy.’
Intimate: It included actual footage of their son’s delivery, which took place on Thursday, July 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, as well as the emotional moment that Khloe was able to hold the newborn for the first time
She continued: ‘It’s almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me. Now I finally get to start the healing process. Now I get to start enjoying my life with two kids in it and figuring this out.
‘This is gonna be day one, and this is gonna be the start of something positive, and happy and beautiful.’
Khloe also explained why, on the advice of Kim, she let Tristan meet his baby boy, saying: ‘I’ve been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured, why not let him come? I’ll never get this moment back.

The lead up to the birth began with Kim making her way to Khloe’s house after learning that Khloe’s surrogate ‘has to go into labor early.’
While on their way to the hospital Khloe admitted to Kim that she’s ‘not ready’ but her sister reassured her that she’s more than ready to welcome another child into her life.
After making their way into the labor ward, Khloe was shocked to learn that the surrogate was already in labor and that they’d be joining her in the delivery room in just a matter of minutes.
Kim, with her camcorder in hand, captured visuals of the hospital room they’ve been placed in, while Khloe got into medical garb.

With footage of heart monitors and other medical equipment on screen, a nurse could be heard instructing the surrogate on how to breathe and when to push.
She also informed Khloe that she’ll let her know ‘when [the baby] is gonna come.’
The surrogate began pushing while Khloe, clearly overwhelmed by the entire ordeal, removed her protective face mask and put her hands over her eyes.
Soon after, footage was shown of Khloe’s son’s birth as he was swiftly picked up by the doctor and wrapped in a blanket as nurses gave him afterbirth care.

The new mum then called her four-year-old daughter True on FaceTime as she introduced her to her baby brother for the first time.
Khloe and Kim’s mother Kris Jenner and their younger half-sister Kylie Jenner also called in to get their first glimpse at the baby.

Kick off: With the birth serving as its dramatic conclusion, the premiere episode of The Kardashians kicks off with an intense heart-to-heart between Khloe and Kim that was filmed months prior

With the birth serving as its dramatic conclusion, the premiere episode of The Kardashians kicked off with an intense heart-to-heart between Khloe and Kim that was filmed months prior.
Khloe admitted to the 41-year-old SKKN founder that she was fearful to go public with the baby news since she’s sure to face backlash in wake of Tristan’s paternity scandal.
‘I mean, I’m anxious, but…I feel like it just has to be time to talk about… Bruno,’ Khloe began, while making reference to the popular song from Disney Pixar’s Encanto.
Kim encouraged Khloe that despite her reservations about going public, she ‘can absolutely do this’ and that she’ll ‘have a sense of relief.’
‘When you guys learned that Tristan was having a baby with somebody else… there was just something that I wasn’t ready to talk about,’ Khloe explains, with tears welling up
‘Everyone will judge because that’s what these f***ing nasty people do anyway. And then it’ll be over,’ Kim explained passionately, while Khloe described the entire situation, itself, is just ‘sad.’
‘I think it’ll be therapeutic for you to deal [with it]. You haven’t wanted to deal. And you’re in denial about your relationship, you’re in denial this is happening, you’re in denial that someone committed to doing this with you and then…’ Kim ranted, before Khloe cut her off to add that Tristan had also ‘committed to someone else,’ aka their then-unborn child.
And after taking a deep breath, Khloe agreed that it is ‘time’ to reveal her baby news to the world.
In a confessional, a visibly emotional Khloe confessed to producers that when they learned of Tristan’s paternity scandal, which was captured in season one and showed Kim breaking the news to her younger sister over the phone after getting wind of an exclusive DailyMail.com story, she had already gone through with her and Tristan’s surrogacy plans.
‘When you guys learned that Tristan was having a baby with somebody else… there was just something that I wasn’t ready to talk about,’ Khloe explained, with tears welling up.

‘Tristan and I are — I don’t even know if I want to say “Tristan and I.” I am having another baby and obviously it’s just really private and I don’t want it to get out right now because I want to protect my mental well-being and the surrogate’s, as well.
‘But, um, yeah, it’s just been a lot to go through all at the same time.’
