Tristan Thompson‘s cheating scandal unfolded for all to see on Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
As Khloé Kardashian prepared to welcome the couple’s first child, daughter True Thompson, on April 12 in Cleveland, she was still reeling from the revelation that Thompson had cheated on her, news of which broke after photos surfaced of him getting close to another woman just days before. Nevertheless, the mom-to-be decided that she wanted to put her feelings aside for the birth of her baby girl.
“It’s important for me to stick to my birthing plan, because this is something that I’ve waited for my entire life,” said Khloé, 34. “I don’t want to take away anything from this moment. I’ve always been a big believer of don’t make permanent decisions off of temporary emotions. I want Tristan here with me, I want to experience this magical moment.”
“I want this for me and my daughter, and for him, at the end of the day,” she continued. “I’m mature enough to say that. I’m mature enough to put personal feelings aside. Me and Tristan will deal with him and I at a later time, when this isn’t affecting our child.”
Mom Kris Jenner and sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian flew in from Los Angeles, and while there were certainly some tense moments in the delivery room, everyone managed to remain relatively cordial.
“The vibe in the room is calm. I thought there would be way more tension,” said Kim, 38. “As much as I want to go off, I just don’t think it’s the time. So I’m going to keep it cute. I don’t have to have a lot of interaction, I just have to be there for her.”
When True was born at 4:00 a.m. — Kris delivered her, and Thompson cut the umbilical cord — Khloé was overwhelmed with emotion.
