Khloe Kardashian choked back tears as she described her shock to learn her on/off boyfriend Tristan Thompson was unfaithful again while expecting their second child together.
In a new one Teaser trailer for The Kardashians season two – which premieres Thursday – the 38-year-old reality star admitted it had been a “difficult time” as she tried to come to terms with yet another betrayal.
In December last year, the couple were secretly expecting a son via surrogate when it was revealed that Tristan had cheated on Khloe with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols – who was pregnant with his child.
He initially denied the child was his, but later admitted his infidelity in a statement posted to Instagram in January, which included a direct apology to Khloe.
The latest The Kardashians teaser showed Khloe sitting down to a confessional with the show’s production team.
“I’m ready to talk about something … Tristan and I are having another baby,” she revealed.
Though excited for her impending arrival, Khloe was visibly distraught by the state of her personal life and the circumstances of Tristan’s betrayal.
“It’s supposed to be a really exciting time and it’s just a different experience,” she said.
In her own confessional, Khloe’s mother noticed Kris Jenner that ‘it’s hard to see her in pain.’
The Good American co-founder said she’s excited about her future as a mother of two, although she found the experience particularly painful.
“This has been a difficult time in my life, but it’s the beginning of something positive, happy and beautiful,” she said.
Khloe and Tristan, 31, began seeing each other in 2016 when his ex Jordan Craig was pregnant with their now five-year-old son Prince.
They welcomed their daughter True, now four, two years later in 2018.
The former couple’s on-and-off romance has been plagued by infidelity on Tristan’s part, including an infamous incident in 2019 when he was caught kissing Jordyn Woods, her sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend.
Despite their ups and downs, Khloe and Tristan reconciled amid the coronavirus pandemic after quarantining together to co-parent their daughter.
The couple split again in 2021 before it was publicly revealed that he had cheated on her in March 2021 with Maralee Nichols, who would later become pregnant with his son Theo – now nine months old.
Maralee gave birth to Theo in early December 2021 and accused Tristan of refusing to pay child support as he continued to insist the child was not his.
But after taking a paternity test, Tristan was forced to reveal that Theo was in fact his son and that he had turned on Khloe for the umpteenth time.
Seven months after the scandal, it was revealed that Khloe was expecting a baby boy with her former partner via surrogate.
According to a source close to the family, there were plans to father a second child with Tristan before Khloe became aware of his paternity scandal.
In August, it was confirmed that the couple’s surrogate mother had given birth to a boy. The name of the newborn is still unknown.
The Kardashians will air weekly on Hulu and Disney+ starting Thursday
