Khloe Kardashian gives fans their first glimpse of her new baby boy in the first episode of season two of The Kardashians.
The new series dropped on Disney+ in the UK on Thursday morning and documents her son’s delivery via surrogate, which took place on July 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The episode also features the emotional moment that Khloe was able to hold the newborn for the first time.
Khloe admitted to feeling as if she had a “dark cloud looming over me”, as she awaited the birth, following the revelation that her former partner and son’s dad Tristan Thompson had fathered another child behind her back.
Khloe explained that she was encouraged by the NBA star to go through with an embryo transfer “around Thanksgiving” last year.
However, one week later, it was revealed that Thompson was expecting a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols. She gave birth to a son named Theo in early December.
For this reason, Khloe decided to have sister Kim Kardashian present at the birth instead of Thompson.
She also grappled with whether or not she should allow the baby’s father to be at the hospital at all, before eventually giving in.
Speaking to the camera after her son’s birth, the reality TV star explained: “I am so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift that we’re able to have.
“Ever since December there has been this dark cloud looming over me. Every single day, I’ve been feeling depressed and sad, and now that my son is here, I get to move on, and I get to enjoy.”
She continued: “It’s almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me. Now I finally get to start the healing process. Now I get to start enjoying my life with two kids in it and figuring this out.
“This is gonna be day one, and this is gonna be the start of something positive, and happy and beautiful.
“I’ve been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured, why not let him come? I’ll never get this moment back.”
In other scenes members of Khloe’s family meet the latest addition via video call, including Khloe’s four-year-old daughter, True, whose father is also Thompson.
One issue still remained a sticking point – her son’s name, with Khloe joking he was a “No Name Johnson”, as she had yet to make up her mind.
