Khloe Kardashian welcomed a baby boy into the world 10 months ago

Khloe Kardashian’s surrogate pregnancy of her baby boy with Tristan Thompson was a pretty well-kept secret. In fact, the little guy came into the world about a week before anyone even knew she was having him. Unfortunately, it was just before her relationship with Tritan came to an explosive end that they made the decision to have a baby via surrogacy. So, understandably, it presented a bit of a problem for the couple to explain having a baby together when they weren’t together anymore.

Regardless of how it happened, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world on July 28th of last year. Ten months passed and Kardashian fans had no idea what the little guy’s name was. This was with the exception of the family teasing that his name started with the letter “T”.

Now — ten months later — the Kardashian family is finally sharing what Khloe’s baby boy’s name is.

Kris Jenner previously leaked his name, no one knew

According to The Sun, Khloe Kardashian’s son’s name is Tatum Robert. Turns out, Kris Jenner accidentally slipped up and revealed the name during an earlier episode of the Hulu series. In the Season 2 Premiere, Kris Jenner and her daughter Khloe were talking about the arrival of her baby boy. Her mother told her the only big thing she needed to figure out was a name.

Khloe responded to her mom noting that the name was definitely going to start with a “T” and “T” names were the only names she was looking at.

As the episode continued, Kris Jenner actually joked that Khloe should consider naming her son Travis. Referencing Kylie’s former baby daddy, she jested the name Travis would certainly be easy to remember.

Where did the name Robert come from?

It was just a month ago that Khloe admitted she opted to give her son a name that started with “T” because she thought it would pair well with her daughter, True. Otherwise, however, she kept the name on lockdown. An insider close to the family, however, has spilled the beans and confirmed the name is Tatum Robert.

Furthermore, the insider confirms “Robert” is a tribute to her late father. The source revealed that Kris Jenner had pressured Khloe to consider naming the baby Robert in honor of her father. Kris, however, wanted Robert to be the baby’s first time. Khloe didn’t budge on going with a “T” name. But, she did honor her later father by giving her son the middle name Robert.

  1. I love the name. it’s perfect. Tatum because it’s not so common and Robert after your dad.

  2. How telling is it, that Kris wanted the grandchild who isn’t actually Robert’s, to be named after him? Pretty pathetic, actually.
