That may explain why Khloe Kardashian is taking her sweet time naming her newborn son who was carried by a paid surrogate.

Many fans believe Khloe, 38, didn't carry her first child, True Thompson, 4.

Khloe and Tristan, 31, who are not currently dating, paid a surrogate to carry their second child. The baby is Tristan's fourth with three different women.

Khloe is waiting to name the precious baby boy, a rep confirmed to "Good Morning America."

Khloe and Tristan dated from 2016 to 2019. They reunited in 2020 but split again in 2021 after another woman fell pregnant with Tristan's 2nd son, who was born in December 2021.

Grimes (R) broke up with Musk, 50, in 2021 after dating three years. They share a 22-month-old son named X Æ A-12 (pronounced X Ash A Twelve, or simply Ash.)

The billionaire Tesla founder shares six sons with first wife Justine Musk.

Grimes revealed her baby news to Vanity Fair magazine in a cover story for the April 2022 issue.

Grimes explained her daughter's unusual name to Vanity Fair, telling the mag that Exa refers to a supercomputing term, exaFLOPS, while Dark represents Dark matter "the unknown." She said, "Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe."

"Sideræl" refers to Grimes' favorite Lord of the Rings character, Galadriel, who "chooses to abdicate the ring."

Grimes told Vanity Fair that she was "fighting" to name her daughter Odysseus Musk, because "A girl named Odysseus is my dream." She and Musk ultimately chose Exa Dark Sideræl instead.

Maralee Nichols, the mother of Tristan Thompson's youngest son, has revealed the boy's name.

Theo Thompson was born on Dec. 1 in Santa Monica, California.

The NBA star's name is not on his son's birth certificate because he disputed his paternity when his son was born. Nichols also said Thompson's "name was not on the birth certificate because he was not present at Theo's birth."

In an Instagram Story, Thompson confirmed that he fathered the child with the personal trainer, apparently during a one night stand in a Houston hotel last year.

Nichols, 31, explained the meaning behind her son's name.

"Theo, my little angel baby. I named you Theo because it means, 'Gift from God,'" Nichols said in a statement to PEOPLE Thursday.

"I had never been pregnant and had been told I might not be able to have children. I couldn't believe I was pregnant, when I saw you on the ultrasound and heard your little heartbeat I knew I would always protect you and keep you safe. I love you more than you'll ever know. You bring such joy and happiness into my life. My greatest blessing."

Nichols' rep told PEOPLE that Thompson has never met Theo, and he "has done nothing to support their son."

"He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance," it added. "In the future, we hope that reporters covering this situation contact us to confirm any facts before publishing."

    Judge orders boy name changed from Messiah A Tennessee couple who couldn't agree on a last name for their infant son ended up in front of a Bible thumping judge who ordered that they change the boy's first name from Messiah to a more acceptable name for black boy's: Martin.

    Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew ordered Jaleesa Martin and the father of the 7-month-old boy to change his name to "Martin DeShawn McCullough," because it includes both parent's last names. Judge Bellow was unhappy with the child's first name because, according to her, only "one person" has ever been named Messiah.
