OHIO — Khloé Kardashian is a mom.
Two sources close to the family tell CNN that Kardashian has given birth to a baby girl.
Kardashian’s boyfriend and the father of her child is Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Tristan Thompson.
The couple became embroiled in controversy before the birth after reports surfaced that Thompson had been spotted in the company of other women during Kardashian’s pregnancy.
News broke Wednesday that Thompson was caught cheating on Kardashian. But TMZ reports Kardashian was planning to allow him to be present for the birth.
Kardashian said in a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that her mother and sisters would be in Cleveland for the delivery. Sources told WJW that Kris Jenner, Khloe’s mother, and Kim Kardashian, Khloe’s sister, arrived in Cleveland on private jets early Thursday morning.
Kardashian announced her pregnancy in December with a photo on her official Instagram account, featuring Thompson cradling her pregnant belly.
“My greatest dream realized,” the caption read. “We are having a baby!”
Kardashian had been open in the past about her struggles with infertility and wrote, “I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along.”
“He knew what He was doing,” she wrote. “I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.”
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️
Her desire to start a family had been part of the storyline on her former reality show “Khloé & Lamar” with now ex-husband and former NBA player Lamar Odom (the couple were estranged for some time before legally divorcing last December).
It’s been a big year for the Kardashian-Jenner clan in terms of babies.
Reports surfaced in September that Khloé Kardashian was pregnant after news that her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, was also pregnant with her first child.
Jenner gave birth to her daughter, Stormi, in February.
