Khloe Kardashian choked back tears as she detailed her shock at learning her on/off boyfriend Tristan Thompson had been unfaithful yet again while they were expecting their second child together.
In a new teaser trailer for the second season of The Kardashians – which will launch on Thursday – the reality star, 38, admitted it had a been ‘a difficult time’ as she tried to come to terms with another betrayal.
In December last year the couple were secretly expecting a son via surrogate when it emerged that Tristan had cheated on Khloe with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols – who was pregnant with his child.
He’d initially denied the child was his but later admitted to his infidelity in a statement published to Instagram in January, which included a direct apology to Khloe.
The latest The Kardashians teaser showed Khloe sitting down for a confessional with the show’s production team.
‘There is something I am ready to talk about… Tristan and I are having another ba,’ she revealed.
Despite looking forward to their impending arrival, Khloe was clearly distraught over the state of her personal life and the circumstances surrounding Tristan’s betrayal.
‘It’s supposed to be a really exciting time and it’s just a different experience,’ she explained.
In her own confessional, Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner remarked that ‘it’s hard to watch her in pain.’
The Good American co-founder went on to express that, although she found the experience to be particularly wrenching, she was looking forward to her future as a mother-of-two.
‘This has been a difficult time in my life but it’s the start of something positive and happy and beautiful,’ she said.
Khloe and Tristan, 31, began seeing each other in 2016 while his ex Jordan Craig was pregnant with his now five-year-old son Prince.
They welcomed their daughter True, now four, two years later in 2018.
The former couple’s on/off romance was plagued infidelity on Tristan’s part, including an infamous incident in 2019 when he was caught kissing her sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods.
Despite their up and downs, Khloe and Tristan reconciled amid the coronavirus pandemic after quarantining together to co-parent their daughter.
The couple separated again in 2021 before it was publicly revealed that he’d cheated on her in March 2021 with Maralee Nichols, who would later fall pregnant with his son Theo – now nine months.
Maralee gave birth to Theo in early December 2021 and accused Tristan of refusing to pay child support as he continued to insist that the child was not his.
But after taking a paternity test, Tristan was forced to reveal that Theo was indeed his son and that he’d stepped out on Khloe for the umpteenth time.
Seven months after the scandal, it was revealed that Khloe was expecting a baboy with her former partner via surrogate.
According to a source close to the family, that plans to conceive a second child with Tristan occurred before Khloe became aware of his paternity scandal.
In August it was confirmed that the pair’s surrogate had given birth to a baboyAs of now, the newborn’s name remains unknown.
