Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
In the show’s finale, Kim noted that Thompson’s drama was a sign that Khloé shouldn’t have another child with her.

She will miss the thought and hope of them getting together and it will be an adjustment,” she said of the on-and-off couple in a self-confessed interview. “Especially when you have kids and you have no choice but to take the highway, even if it kills you.”
Amid the recent baby news, a source clarified that Khloé and Thompson are not trying again. “Khloé and Tristan are parents together but don’t speak to each other [outside] co-parenting, that’s the only communication they have left,” an insider told Us exclusively. “Tristan realized he was a parent figure to True and the new baby [and] that’s all he is to Khloé right now.”
