Khloe Kardashian has officially confirmed her son’s name as Tatum, almost a year after his arrival.
The 38-year-old welcomed a baby boy with Tristan Thompson via surrogate last summer, but has kept the little one mostly out of sight since then.
After he made his debut on Instagram in December, she teased that his name would be revealed in the Kardashians season three premiere.
Midway through the episode, the mom-of-two told the camera: ‘His name is Tatum. So Tatum and True. Naming a human is hard.’
Khloe’s decision to introduce a second child with Tristan, 32, came just before it was revealed that he had secretly fathered a son with Maralee Nichols, with much of the fallout caught on camera.
Since then, the on-off couple went their separate ways but have remained close for the sake of daughter True and their new bundle of joy.
The Good American designer confirmed Tatum’s arrival in August, with a special Kardashians episode giving viewers a glimpse into their baby joy.
Elsewhere in the premiere, Khloe also revealed how tough she found the surrogacy process, describing the journey to her second child as a ‘mindf**k’.
In a candid conversation, sister Kim Kardashian – who previously welcomed children Chicago and Psalm via a surrogate – told Scott Disick: ‘She had a really hard time accepting the whole process.
‘I do think there is a difference when the baby is in your belly, the baby actually feels your real heart, it touches your organs.
‘There’s no one else on this entire planet that will feel you from the inside like that. Your heart.’
Khloe shared: ‘People can connect in different ways, people could not connect.’
When asked if she felt ‘less connected’, she agreed: ‘People say it’ll take a minute. But Kim said hers was easy, this is not easy.’
‘I definitely buried my head in the sand during that pregnancy, that I didn’t digest what was happening,’ she admitted in a confessional. ‘When I went to the hospital, I really think that was the first time that really registered.
‘It has nothing to do with the baby, it’s just… “Okay, we’re having a baby, this is my son and I’m taking him home with me.” I definitely was in a state of shock, I think, from my entire experience in general.
‘I felt really guilty that this woman just had my baby and I take the baby, and I go to another room and you’re separated. It’s such a transactional experience because it’s not about him.
‘I wish someone was honest about surrogacy and the difference of it, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad, it’s still great. It’s just very different.’
The Kardashians airs on Hulu in the US and is available to stream on Disney+ in the UK.
