Khloé Kardashian has officially revealed the name of her son. Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their little boy in late July 2022, and the reality star decided to keep the baby's name under wraps. But in the season three premiere of "The Kardashians," which aired on 25 May, Kardashian publicly shares the baby's name for the first time: Tatum.
"Naming a human is really hard," she says in the episode about why it took her so long to pick and announce a name. Kardashian also shares daughter True, 5, with Thompson. The basketball player also has sons Prince, 6, and Theo, 17 months.
Kardashian's official announcement comes days after eagle-eyed fans noticed her best friend, Malika Haqq, referred to the baby's name with a comment on Instagram.
On Friday, 19 May, Kardashian posted a pair of pictures showing her holding her baby. Several of the reality star's famous friends commented on her post — including Serena Williams, who wrote, "I love him" — but it was Haqq's comment that left her followers talking. "Go Tate!" the former "Hollywood Divas" star commented. Earlier in May, rumours began circulating that Kardashian and Thompson had named their son Tatum Robert.
Before the official name announcement, Kardashian confirmed her son's name starts with a "T," just like his dad's and big sister True's. During a 5 April appearance on "The Jennifer Hudson Show," Kardashian not only revealed that her little boy has a "T" name, she also opened up about why it took some time to ultimately settle on one.
"I wanted to meet him and feel him out a little bit," she said. "At first, he didn't have a name. Then, he's been named, but I've been waiting for the premiere of our show, and I didn't know it was going to be this far out."
Kardashian went on to joke, "So now, if my daughter outs me, I'm screwed." It turns out True was able to keep her family's big secret after all.
