Khloe Kardashian Announces Daughter’s Name
April 17, 2018
Khloe Kardashian shared the name of her first child, a baby girl, on social media on Apr. 16 when she finally broke the silence surrounding the arrival of her baby girl–welcome to the world, True Thompson! It comes as no surprise to see the new mom settle upon a “T” name, as she revealed on ELLEN that her and her partner, Tristan Thompson, were interested in names that began with either “T” or “K” — and they decided to honor her family with the name True.
Kardashian matriarch and proud grandma Kris Jenner took to Instagram to share the backstory behind the moniker, revealing that both her father and grandfather were named True — and baby makes three.
I’m so excited to welcome my precious little granddaughter True!!! FUN FACT… my Grandfather’s name on my Dad’s side was True Otis Houghton….my Dad’s name was Robert True Houghton…so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!! #lovebug #familytradition #family @true

While Kardashian is basking in the arrival of her bundle of joy and putting on a united front with her partner, there was speculation regarding the status of their relationship after Thompson was allegedly caught with another woman in NYC the weekend before Kardashian went into labor in Cleveland. The basketball player was in town for a game versus the NY Knicks while Kardashian was nesting in their Cleveland home. Although the new mom has yet to publicly address the rumors, her famous family rallied around her as her mother and big sisters, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, flew in to be by her side as she delivered her baby girl.
Despite the scandal, a source confirmed to People that the couple is trying to make it work and move past the drama and Kardashian wants to be able to forgive and trust her partner once again.
“Khloé still very much loves Tristan, and this baby is one half his. True is their child together. Giving the baby his last name was never in question,” the source continued.
