At this point, you’ve definitely heard that Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting another child together, via surrogate—and while the news was leaked before Khloé even had a chance to tell close friends and family (more on that in a sec), it sounds like Kim Kardashian definitely knew.

A source tells People that “Khloé tried to get pregnant for a while. When this didn’t work out, they decided to explore other options. Kim supported and encouraged Khloé to find a surrogate.”

The source noted that Khloé was “elated” when she found out her surrogate was pregnant in December, which was the same month she found out that Tristan Thompson had once again cheated on her and fathered a child with another woman.

“It was a bittersweet situation for Khloé,” the source explains. “She was so excited about the baby but incredibly disappointed in Tristan. Like Khloé always does, though, she turned it around and focused on the good.”

While Khloé herself hasn’t spoken out about her and Tristan’s second baby, her rep released a statement confirming the timeline and saying Khloé is thrilled:

“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.”

Meanwhile, a source recently told E! News that “Khloé kept the pregnancy a secret to protect surrogate privacy and safety and to protect her mental health from judgment from the public as a result of Tristan’s actions.” That said, “Khloé’s hand was forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce,” and her rep had to release a statement about the leak “even before she had the opportunity to personally tell her closest family and friends.”
