Khloé Kardashian is expanding her family!
On Wednesday, it was revealed that the 38-year-old is expecting her second child, who will be born via surrogate.
“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 Khloe can focus on her family,” a representative for Khloé told Access Hollywood.
Multiple outlets report that her ex Tristan Thompson is the father, but her rep did not mention his name in the statement.
The pair has been broken up since December, and a source close to the Kardashian family tells NBC News that Khloé and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters.
