Kim Kardashian 'supported and encouraged' her younger sister Khloé to have a second child with her ex Tristan Thompson.

Khloe, 38, and Tristan, 31, who are parents to daughter True, four, announced on Wednesday night their baby was conceived in November via a surrogate.

A source told People on Thursday that The Kardashians star encouraged Khloe to continue with a surrogate after she “tried to get pregnant.”

They revealed: “Khloé tried to get pregnant for a while [last year].

“When this didn’t work out, they decided to explore other options. Kim supported and encouraged Khloé to find a surrogate.”

It comes after Khloe issued a statement through her representatives on Wednesday night asking for “kindness and privacy” in the upcoming weeks so the television personality can “focus on her family”.

Sources close to the businesswomen exclusively revealed to Daily Star that Khloe and Tristan have no contact other than to discuss their daughter.

The source also adds that the baby was conceived via a surrogate and before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan had fathered a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols.

A representative confirmed to Daily Star: “We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November.

“Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.”

It comes after Tristan had repeatedly asked for a DNA test in January to prove he was the father after Maralee’s claims in a lawsuit that the pair had sexual intercourse over his 30th birthday weekend in March 2021.

In January, he took to his Story to write: “Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols."

He added: “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established. I look forward to amicably raising our son.”

Tristan then went on to apologize to Khloe and anyone else who has been affected by the situation.

He said: “Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.”
