Asking her viewpoint? Kim Kardashian thought about romance and regret it immediately after it was revealed that her sister Khloé Kardashian is carrying her ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s second child by surrogate.
On Sunday, July 17, the 41-year-old founder of Skims posted several statements on Instagram about overcoming second thoughts.
“Life’s too short to wake up with regrets,” a quote from Dr. Seuss read. “So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”
Kim also added another post about relationship challenges to her Instagram Story, which stated, “Girls can see the difference between 200 shades of nude lipstick but they can’t see red flags.”
Following Us Weekly‘s confirmation on Wednesday, July 13, that Khloé, 38, and Thompson, 31, are expecting a second child together, the reality star has been active on social media. “We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” a rep for the Good American cofounder told Us in a statement. “Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.”
In her reality series, the founder of KWW has openly discussed the athlete’s ups and downs with her family. Khloé learned about Thompson’s paternity scandal when The Kardashians season 1 was being shot. Kim was spotted telling her sister that Maralee Nichols was suing the NBA player for child support.
The Canadian native admitted in court records obtained by Us at the time that he had hooked up with Nichols, 31, that March while he was still with Khloé. Thompson confirmed being the father of the fitness model’s now 7-month-old kid, Theo, on social media earlier this year after requesting DNA testing in the past.
The basketball player also apologized to Khloé in the statement, writing in January, “Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
According to US Magazine, in the show’s finale, Kim noted that Thompson’s drama was a sign Khloé shouldn’t have another child with him. (The exes are already parents to 4-year-old daughter True.) “But if this isn’t the biggest sign for you not to have another baby with this human being,” the businesswoman said, later telling the cameras she was “proud” of Khloé.
Kim said at the time that Khloé’s decision to try and give Thompson a “second chance” after he “dogged her and embarrassed the s-t” out of her took a lot.
“Tristan is her best friend — was her best friend — and she is going to miss her best friend. She is going to miss the thought and the hope of them coming together and it is going to be an adjustment,” she said in a confessional interview about the on-and-off pair. “Especially when you have kids and you have no choice but to take the high road even if it kills you.”
Amid the recent baby news, a source clarified that Khloé and Thompson are not giving things another try. “Khloé and Tristan are co-parenting, but not speaking [outside]of coparenting, that is the only communication they have anymore,” an insider exclusively told Us. “Tristan has realized that he’s a parental figure to True and the new baby [and]that’s all he is to Khloé right now.”
