Khloe Kardashian has given birth to her first child.
After weeks of rumors, a confirmation, and in the midst of the cheating scandal, the youngest of the three Kardashian sisters gave birth to a baby girl, according to TMZ. People also confirmed the news through an unnamed source.
Kardashian gave birth early Thursday morning at a hospital outside Cleveland, TMZ reported. The site also reported that Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney and Kim, as well as Kardashian’s best friend Malika Haqq were at the hospital. The baby girl doesn’t have a name yet, TMZ reported.
According to The Blast, Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson was there for the birth. Thompson is at the center of multiple cheating allegations after video footage showed him with another woman Saturday in New York.
On Tuesday, TMZ posted video footage from October 2017 showing Thompson kissing one woman and being groped by another at a Washington, D.C. hookah lounge.
Kardashian was thankful when she announced her pregnancy in a Dec. 20 Instagram post.
“I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing,” Kardashian captioned the post. “I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!!”
It’s the first child for Kardashian and the second child for Thompson. The 27-year-old has a 16-month-old son named Prince Oliver from a previous relationship.

Kylie Jenner may not be the only first-time mother in the Kardashian-Jenner family.
According to Us Weekly, Khloe Kardashian is pregnant.
Citing multiple unnamed sources, the publication says she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
The 33-year-old reality TV personality and the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 26, have been dating since September 2016. Thompson has a 9-month-old son from a previous relationship.
If the claim is true, Kardashian joins big sister Kim, who is reportedly expecting a baby girl via surrogate, and younger halfsister Kylie Jenner, who is reportedly four months pregnant with a baby girl. None of the rumors have been confirmed by the reality TV stars. When Ryan Seacrest texted matriarch Kris Jenner about reports of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy, she responded, “Kylie is not confirming anything.”
An unnamed source told People the couple was not in a rush to announce the news.
“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled. This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle,” the source told People. “Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.”
Representatives for Kardashian and Thompson have not responded to the reports. Thompson only tweeted a few emoji eyes, but that could be in response to reports that Dwayne Wade may be joining the Cavaliers after agreeing to a buyout with the Chicago Bulls Sunday. He followed up the tweet with another that read, “Can't wait for the season to start!!!”
After weeks of speculation, Khloe Kardashian has confirmed through a social media post that she’s pregnant.
Kardashian, 33, unveiled her baby bump with a picture on Instagram Thursday, saying her “greatest dream” has been realized. The photo shows Kardashian and her boyfriend and father of the baby, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, cradling her bump.
“We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along,” Kardashian said in the post.
The reality TV star said she and Thompson, 26, wanted to keep the news private for as long as possible, but decided the time was right to go public.
“I know we’ve been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us,” she said.
Kardashian said the pregnancy is overwhelmingly emotional.
“I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life!”
Thompson and Kris Jenner also celebrated the public announcement of the news.
“God is so good!! I am beyond excited! What a blessing,” Jenner wrote on Instagram in a repost of Kardashian’s photo.
“My love, thank you for (allowing) me to be a part of your journey in life and allowing to share this moment with you this is something (I’ll) always cherish. Girl you look better now,” he wrote under his girlfriend’s post.
Both of her sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, already have children. Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West are expecting their third child, a daughter, via surrogate. Their younger half sister, Kylie Jenner, is rumored to be expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Travis Scott.
People reported that Thompson was allegedly photographed with another woman at the PH-D Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night.
The Daily Mail published video and photos of the 27-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player with a brunette woman. In some of the footage, Thompson appears to be kissing her.
The same woman, according to The Shade Room, was seen Saturday in New York leaving a day party with Thompson and later met up together around 8:30 p.m. at a hotel where the Cavaliers were staying. The gossip site reported that the woman and Thompson left together for a night party, which may have been at at the PH-D Lounge, and came back to the hotel together at 5 a.m. The woman was seen leaving the hotel alone the next morning, wearing the same outfit she was photographed in the night before.
The Cavs were in New York for a Monday night game against the New York Knicks.
The footage appears to only be the latest in other incidents in which Thompson has cheated on Kardashian.
“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” an unnamed source told People. “He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”
On Tuesday, TMZ posted an October 2017 video that appears to show Thompson kissing one woman as another groped him at a Washington, D.C., hookah lounge. Thompson also appears to bury his head in one woman’s chest.
It appears the entire Kardashian-Jenner family has responded to some degree to the reports. The Daily Mail reported that Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, as well as Scott Disick have unfollowed Thompson on Instagram.
Kardashian, 33, and Thompson began dating in September 2016, when Thompson’s ex girlfriend, Jordan Craig was pregnant with Thompson’s first child, a son named Prince Oliver. The Shade Room and People reported that Craig responded to the allegations against Thompson on Instagram.
“If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone, nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others,” Craig wrote. “Wishing peace for everyone.”
Neither Thompson nor Khloé Kardashian have responded to the reports.
