Who is Khloé’s baby daddy?
The father of Khloé’s first child is her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. The reality star and the Cleveland Cavalier have been dating since they were set up on a blind date by fellow NBA baller Brandon Jennings. While the new arrival marks the first child for Khloé, he is already a proud dad to a nearly one-year-old son named Prince with a former fling.
Unfortunately, things haven't been going well for the parents-to-be. An insider recently told In Touch exclusively that the two were on the rocks because Koko was pressuring her NBA-playing beau into proposing and he just wasn't there yet. A source close to Khloé explained, "Khloé is strong but sad. She’s been so unlucky in love. Tristan is there for fun but not the full-time commitment, so she will be raising this baby alone.”
Is she having a boy or a girl?
Though Khloé has yet to confirm the gender of her baby herself, multiple sources have told Us Weekly that she's expecting a little boy! This is extra exciting, considering Kim and Kylie are rumored to have girls on the way.
When is Khloé due?
According to People, Khloé is due in February — allegedly around the same time as her younger sister! If the reports are to be believed, they are due a few weeks after Kim and Kanye’s surrogate, who is expected to give birth to the couple's third child in late January.
Did Khloé use IVF?
TMZ — who broke the story — reports that Khloé conceived naturally. This is interesting to many fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, as she’s been open about her fertility struggle. She and ex-husband Lamar Odom struggled to get pregnant during their marriage, and when she met with a specialist months in to her relationship with Tristan, 26, she admitted that she “fake tried” to get pregnant, a confession that hurt Lamar.
“That hurt a little bit, you know what I’m saying?” he said at the time. “I probably wasn’t [in the right space to be a father], honestly, so she probably was right in saying that. She could have told me, but she was probably right.”
Has anyone from the famous family commented on Khloé’s rumored pregnancy?
The short answer is no. The longer answer is, well, sort of. Khloé and Tristan have dropped multiple clues on social media — constantly referring to each other as “mom” and “dad." The most obvious was on Oct. 30, when Khlo snappched a photo of Tristan in a Dothraki warrior Halloween costume (she was Khaleesi) with the caption "that's daddy." Of course she could mean "daddy" in a flirty way, but it seems odd considering he's also her baby-daddy.

No one else has come out to confirm or deny the rumors. That said, Kim cryptically addressed the rumors — though it’s unclear which pregnancy she’s referring to — on Twitter. “Let me just say this…” she tweeted. “People who supposedly work with us ‘confirming’ details they know nothing about! Especially when we haven’t even communicated with them, SMH.”
Her mama Kris Jenner seemingly confirmed both Khloé's and Kylie's pregnancies when she shared a clip of Ellen DeGeneres discussing the baby news — and didn't deny either one! Looks like we’ll just have to sit back and patiently wait until February.
