“I would love to have a family. We’ve talked about it … I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father,” she said. “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”

Khloé and Tristan went big for their last Valentine’s day before welcoming their daughter into the world.
Khloé announced on the season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she and Tristan are expecting a baby girl, according to E! News, the network that airs the show.
On April 10, while Khloé was in Ohio (where the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player is based) preparing for the birth of her first child, Tristan was spotted off the court in NYC. Video footage showed him getting close to a mystery brunette at PH-D Lounge and later allegedly brought a woman to his hotel room. According to Page Six, Khloé understandably “went ballistic” and “was devastated” over the reports.
On April 12th Khloé gave birth to their daughter True Thompson in Cleveland. Tristan was in the delivery room with her, according to tweets the new mom later posted in November 2018.
Days later, on April 16, Khloé posted a photo of cute pink room and wrote: “Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”
At the end of the month, Kim was a guest on Ellen and broke her silence on the Tristan situation. “Poor Khloé,” she said. “I don’t even know how to describe it besides, ‘It’s just so f*cked up.'”
She added, “We really were rooting for Khloé, and we still are. She’s so strong, she’s doing the best that she can, it’s a really sad situation all over.”
Khloé and Tristan were seen in public for the first time since last month’s cheating scandal; they went to dinner together. They were spotted again during a basketball game; she was in the second row supporting him.
Khloé clapped back at a someone on Twitter who said Tristan is trash and called Khloé a “hypocrite”
@ChicBitchxo: “I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. she preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite 😔”
Khloé: “Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.”
Khloé shut down rumors that she and Tristan are in couples therapy.
“She was never planning on leaving him. Khloé was always going to try and make this work for a plethora of reasons,” Kris’ friend Lisa Stanley said, according to Us Weekly. “The first reason is she has a child now, and she feels very connected to [Thompson] in that way. The second reason is she loves him. She clearly loves the man.”
Khloé responded with an Instagram comment: “Who is Lisa Stanley?”
Although Khloé and Tristan showed solidarity on a double date with Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons in August, the following month, Thompson was surrounded by cheating rumors again. Us Weekly reported that the ball player and a mystery woman were “chatting and flirting” at a club in L.A. “They were very touchy-feely. He had his hand on her butt,” a source told the outlet.
