Khloe Kardashian shared the first public photo of her second child, a boy, who was conceived via IVF and carried by a surrogate.

It isn't clear if Tristan Thompson is the biological donor of Khloe's son. The two fell out after Tristan fathered his second son with a personal trainer in 2021.

Khloe, 38, and Tristan, 31, also share a 4-year-old daughter True Thompson.

Khloe and Tristan began dating in 2016. Their relationship hit bumps in the road - mainly due to his insatiable appetite for strippers and Instagram models.

Khloe and Tristan separated in February 2019, after she discovered he cheated on her with her sister, Kylie's ex-personal assistant, Jordyn Woods.

Khloe and Tristan got back together in August 2020 to ride out the Covid-19 pandemic. But they split again in June 2021 after his third baby mama filed a paternity lawsuit.

On Wednesday, it was reported that Tristan was seen leaving a Hollywood party with buxom Instagram model, Juanita JCV.

Although the NBA free agent and Juanita, 24, did not arrive together at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, they departed together in the same vehicle.

Juanita was photographed hiding in the back of Tristan's Maybach SUV.

Adrienne Bailon Houghton, 38, and Israel Houghton, 51, welcomed their first child.

She made the announcement in a social media post, alongside a B&W photo of the couple and their newborn on Tuesday.

She captioned the post:

"For this child we have prayed
Just to hear our baby cry
Skin to skin and face to face
Heart to heart and eye to eye...

Our baby boy is here & we are so in love! If you have followed our love story... you know that our journey to baby has been very challenging - But God is true to His word and His promises."

Bailon's struggles to conceive a child with Houghton have been well-documented over the past six years. Houghton has four children from his first marriage.

Sources say Bailon hired a surrogate to carry her first child after years of trying to fall pregnant. This photo was posted on her Instagram page 5 weeks ago.

In 2021, The Real co-host Loni Love defended Bailon from trolls who asked why she wasn't pregnant yet.

Bailon got engaged to Houghton on August 12, 2016 in Paris. They were married after six months of dating.

Bailon is a former member of the girl groups 3LW and The Cheetah Girls. She is best known as co-host of the daytime talk show The Real.

She dated Rob Kardashian from 2007 until 2009. They broke up after she caught him cheating on her.

Women who don't carry their own babies to term take longer to bond with their babies, according to child experts.

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

Khloe announced she and Tristan Thompson were expecting their second child via surrogate in July. She said she was "incredibly grateful" to the surrogate for the "blessing" she bestowed upon them.

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.

According to reports, Khloe Kardashian welcomed her second child with cheating ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

The couple already share four-year-old daughter, True.

According to TMZ, their second child may have been born days ago via a surrogate — likely the same surrogate who delivered True.

The news comes as Khloe is reportedly pretending to date a white man.

According to ET!, Khloe is dating a Caucasian private equity investor, who was introduced to her at a dinner party by her sister, Kim Kardashian, several months ago.

BACKGRID

Rumors swirled that Khloe's surrogate was pregnant with her second child. But the child was supposed to arrive before the final episode of the family's poorly rated reality TV series, The Kardashians.

The child is Thompson's fourth. He has yet to meet his seven month old son, Theo, by personal trainer Maralee Nichols.

Thompson, 31, also has a son named Prince with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

Khloe, 38, recently shared a photo to her Instagram Story of a flower arrangement from Tristan in celebration of her recent birthday.

Last month an Instagram blogger claimed Khloe was dating another NBA player. Khloe didn't waste time denying that rumor.

She hopped in the comments section to say the rumor was not true.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are man and wife - for real this time.

Kourtney Barker, 43, and Travis, 46, tied the knot at a courthouse in Santa Barbara, California on Sunday, TMZ reports.

Kourtney's grandmother, Mary Jo "MJ" Campbell and Travis' father, Randy Barker, witnessed the nuptials.

None of the Kardashians or Jenners were there and none of the couple's children attended.

Kourtney and Travis drove off into the sunset in a classic black low rider convertible car. A sign tied to the grill read: "Just Married."

JosiahW / BACKGRID

The couple fooled their fans by "marrying" in a fake wedding officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator in Las Vegas after the Grammy Awards last month.

Courtney later confirmed the Las Vegas wedding wasn't real, as the couple did not have a marriage license.

Presumably they have a marriage license this time. They will have a third ceremony in Italy in the summer.

Kourtney has struggled with in vitro fertilization (IVF) issues while trying to have Barker's baby. She has paid a small fortune trying to get pregnant again at age 43.

Sources say she will settle for a surrogate like her sisters Kim, Khloe and Kylie did with their first children.

Elon Musk welcomed a daughter with his ex-girlfriend, singer Grimes (Claire Boucher) via surrogate.

The 33-year-old Canadian told Vanity Fair that she welcomed daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, in December.

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.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas are new parents after welcoming a baby girl via surrogate last weekend.

"We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family," Priyanka announced on Instagram Friday.

The power couple tied the knot in two ceremonies in Jodhpur, India, in front of 225 invited guests.

Nick, 29, and Priyanka, 39, began dating in May 2018. Their 10-year age difference upset Nick's female fans who thought she was too old for him.

Nick first found fame with the Jonas Brothers on The Disney Channel in 2005. Nick and his brothers, Joe Jonas, 32, and Kevin Jonas, 34, won Breakthrough Artist at the American Music Awards in 2008.

Nick branched out into acting playing Boone on the FOX horror/comedy series Scream Queens. He also starred in the films Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level (2019).

Priyanka, from Jamshedpur, India, made a name for herself when she won the Miss World pageant in 2000.

She won the Filmfare Award and National Film Award for Best Actress in the movie Fashion, and in 2015, she was cast as Alex Parrish in the ABC crime drama Quantico.

Priyanka released her first single "In My City" in 2012.

Kylie Jenner (or her surrogate) is pregnant with baby number 2. Her father, Caitlyn Jenner, let the news slip out during a campaign stop on Friday.

Jenner is hoping to win the upcoming gubernatorial recall election in California.

"I just found out the other day that I have another one in the oven," 71-year-old Jenner said, referring to a pregnant daughter. The baby will be the gubernatorial candidate's nineteenth grandchild.

"I keep telling the girls — they're not too excited about this — but we want to go for 30," Jenner said.

Fans speculated that the pregnant daughter might be Kourtney Kardashian, already a mother-of-three at age 42.

Kylie had been the subject of pregnancy rumors since she didn't update her Instagram page with updated photos.

Kylie is the mom to three-year-old daughter Stormi Webster by rapper Travis Scott. Fans have doubts that Kylie carried Stormi to term since there are no photos of her bare baby bump.

Kylie's sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian enlisted surrogates to carry their children. Kim gave birth to her eldest child, North West, and first son, Saint. Then she hired a surrogate to birth daughter Chicago and son Psalm.


 
FYI: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Kim Kardashian hired a surrogate to give birth to Saint, Chicago and Psalm. In fact, Kim gave birth to Saint.

Anderson Cooper revealed that he decided to reunite with his ex-boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, because his newborn son needs two parents.

The CNN host told Howard Stern on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show that he remained close with his ex Maisani, who broke up with him after a decade of dating.

Cooper, 52, said he asked Maisani to co-parent his son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, who was delivered by a surrogate in April.

"I don't really have a family, so my friends have become my family... This is somebody I was involved with for 10 years. He's a great guy... We didn't work out as a couple," said Cooper of Maisani, 47.

Cooper gave some insight into his unhappy childhood that led to his alternative lifestyle. He confirmed that his late mother, fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt, was not a nurturing mother.

"When I was a little kid, it was just my mom and my brother, but it was my mom -- she was not the most parental person and I wish some adult, after my dad died, had stepped in and just been like, 'You know what, I'll take you to a ball game,'" Cooper said.

Maisani reportedly dumped Cooper in 2018 after the anchorman allegedly cheated on him with a Dallas radiologist named Victor.

According to the gossipmongers on Data Lounge, Cooper hired a surrogate to deliver his baby in the hopes of enticing Maisani to come back to him.

This rarely works for heterosexual women who believe having a baby will make their cheating men stay.

Barack Obama's brother Malik Obama, also known as Abongo or Roy, is among those targeting new father Anderson Cooper.

The 52-year-old CNN anchor announced his son was delivered by a surrogate last week. Cooper, who is openly homosexual, said he and an ex-boyfriend will raise the child together without a mother.

In a series of tweets on April 30, Malik Obama attacked Cooper.

"How A Man and A Man Have A Baby? HOW!?" Malik tweeted.

"Is He Not Gay (Homosexual)?" he captioned a retweet of a CNN article on Cooper becoming a new dad.

Malik followed up, tweeting: "This Is Abnormal."

Barack and Malik share the same father. Malik was born in Kenya. He claims his brother was also born in Kenya.

Christian conservatives also attacked Cooper for raising the child without a biological mother.

"A boy deserves his mother, yet if I understand your plan correctly, your son will not be raised together by her and by you. That's what saddens me the most," Christian evangelist Michael Brown wrote for Charisma News.

"Can you imagine what your life would look like today without the influence of your mother? Can you imagine Anderson Cooper without Gloria Vanderbilt?" Brown asked. "Who would you be without your mom?"

Kandi Burruss shared a photo of her sleeping daughter, Blaze Tucker, with her followers on Instagram. The one-month-old baby was delivered by a surrogate using Kandi's previously frozen egg, fertilized by her husband Todd Tucker's sperm.

In the photo taken by baby photographer @weelovephotography, little Blaze sleeps peacefully while swaddled in a blanket. A headband ringed with intricate flowers and pearls adorns her head.

In another post on Thursday, Kandi shared her IVF journey with her followers. She explained her reasons for using a surrogate (pictured) to carry her and Todd's second child after suffering complications during her pregnancy with her son, Ace Tucker.

"My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate," she wrote.

"My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids."

The 43-year-old mother-of-three said she overcame her fears that the surrogate would keep her baby or that she wouldn't bond with the child.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an expensive procedure for women who can't conceive on their own. Each "cycle" can cost as much as $15,000 and is not guaranteed to produce results.

Below are excerpts from Kandi's post:

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. At least that is what most of us are taught, but no one ever shares that the journey to the baby carriage can come with sadness, doubts, and fertility obstacles. My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids.

My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate (pictured here!). When we looked into this I went through a series of emotions and questions like: how is this going to affect my bond with my child? what if the surrogate tries to keep my baby? what are others going to think? Will the baby share DNA with the surrogate from the pregnancy even though it is my eggs?

She continued:

"I've had an amazing husband to lean on, and my surrogate has been so encouraging, but it's been great to talk to other women who really understand my fears and pain firsthand. All in all I have to say to each of you: your journey to the baby carriage may not be the same as someone else’s, but you are not alone in this journey to motherhood."

Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker are expecting another child via in vitro fertilization (IVF) and a surrogate.

According to editors at E!, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd will soon add another bouncing baby to their family.

WENN.com

The former Xscape star's surrogate journey will be documented on the upcoming season 12 of RHOA.

Though IVF was routine among white Hollywood stars for decades, the IVF trend among urban stars was popularized by part-time singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 39, who reportedly had all three of her IVF children delivered via surrogates.

Kandi took advantage of IVF to conceive her son Ace Tucker and deliver him herself.

Earlier this year, the 43-year-old reality star and part-time singer expressed her hopes to expand her family to include another baby.

"It was a blessing we was able to get (our son) Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos. And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that's why we decided we would consider surrogacy," Kandi explained to The Daily Dish. "Todd and I are both nervous about it. I think it's easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he's used to somebody else carrying the baby."

Kandi also got advice on the process from openly ghey TV host Andy Cohen, who welcomed a son in February 2019 via surrogate.

"I had made a comment. I said something like, 'I guess I'm gonna have a baby mama.' And he said to me, 'Don't you ever say that because you are the mother,'" Kandi recalled during an appearance on Busy Tonight. "'And to say she's your baby's mom is taking away from you.' It made me feel better."

Kandi is already mom to daughter Riley, 17, and Todd is dad to daughter Kaela, 22.
