Is Khloe Kardashian "already trying for baby No. 2" with Tristan Thompson? A report from this week's tabloids claims she's ready to be pregnant again, just three months after welcoming daughter True. Gossip Cop looked into the story.
In Touch contends that despite True's young age and Thompson's cheating scandal, Kardashian is "already trying for another child." A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "She wants the kids to be very close in age, so if she got pregnant tomorrow with Tristan's baby, she'd be ecstatic." The untraceable tipster goes on to assert, "She's also not afraid of putting the baby weight back on because she lost it so quickly the first time."
Curiously, the magazine never says how Thompson feels about supposedly having another child. The outlet, however, does describe Kardashian's family as "shocked that she wants another child so quickly," particularly "with Tristan." But the publication maintains "it's unlikely that their opinions will have any influence on the new mom." Insists the alleged snitch, "Like always, Khloe is going to do what she wants to do."
Gossip Cop has rounded up a few reasons to be skeptical of these claims. First off, just a week ago, Kardashian said on Twitter that she still wants to lose "a few more pounds." Then, only a few days ago, Kardashian celebrated being able to do a specific workout for the first time since before her pregnancy, calling it "really, really exciting." If the reality star still wants to lose more weight and is excited about returning to her pre-pregnancy workout, it makes little sense to claim she currently wants to get pregnant again.
Second, People reported earlier this week that Kardashian believes Thompson still doesn't "understand the consequences" of his infidelity. Us Weekly also had a story this week about Thompson feeling "trapped," in which it was noted the couple is "still not fully OK," and that he had abandoned couple's counseling. These articles indicate the relationship is still on shaky ground, as opposed to being solid enough where Kardashian would want to have another child with him.
Third, this tale about having another baby is coming from the same tabloid that earlier this month tried to dupe readers into thinking Kardashian and Thompson were married. Before that, it peddled an article claiming Thompson felt "dumped" because Kardashian supposedly didn't want to live with him. But now they're "already trying" for a second kid?
All of this goes to the heart of the magazine's credibility, or lack thereof. And as opposed to there being evidence to back up this latest narrative, there are only reasons why readers shouldn't trust it.
UPDATE: Just an hour after our bust was published, Kardashian herself confirmed on Twitter that she is not currently trying for another child. Asked by a follower if even she even thinks about having another baby, she replied, "Not right now lol True is only 3 months old so give me some time lol." This is now a clear fact check with Kardashian as a primary source; her comment proves the tabloid's story is false.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
