KHLOÉ STRUGGLED TO CONNECT WITH SURROGATE-BORN SON
The Lord is back! Scott Disick made his return to The Kardashians season three after not appearing on the second season of the series. He sat down with Kim and Khloé Kardashian and seemingly caught up.
Khloé welcomed her son Tatum via surrogate with Tristan Thompson in July 2022. The reality star and Tristan also have a four-year-old daughter named True together. While Tristan is also a father to Prince, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig and one-year-old Theo, who he shares with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols.
On the first episode of The Kardashians season three, Khloé revealed that she didn’t really register that she was having a child until she got to the hospital.
“I felt really guilty that this woman just had my baby,” she said.
“I take the baby and I go to another room and you’re sort of separated. It’s such a transactional experience ’cause it’s not about him,” she continued.
She admitted to Scott and Kim that the process had been challenging for her. Kim welcomed two of her four children — Chicago and Psalm via surrogate.
“I wish someone was honest about surrogacy and the difference of it…It’s still great, it’s just very different,” she added.
