It has been quite a week for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. They welcomed their baby girl less than two days after photos and video surfaced showing Thompson being less than faithful. In honor of the couple’s very crazy week, let's take a look back at the timeline of their year and a half relationship.
Their mutual friend, Brandon Jennings, set the couple up on a blind date in August 2016. Although it was a blind date, it was more of a group outing, as Kardashian did not want to go on a blind date alone. Regardless, they hit it off immediately. It took the rumor mill just a couple of weeks to expose the romance, as they were spotted leaving an LA club by the name of Bootsy Bellows within seconds of each other shortly after they were first introduced.
Several other outings, including a Mexican vacation, confirmed that rumors of the two being an item were true. Also, the two started to appear on each other’s social media accounts a lot. Thompson was even spotted hanging out with Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, in one of her Instagram posts. Thankfully, they didn’t play the "are they or aren’t they" game very long. In September 2016, Kardashian confirmed on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians 10-year anniversary special she and the Cleveland Cavaliers player were in a relationship. She also informed Ryan Seacrest, on the same special the romance was very serious.
Throughout the rest of 2016, the two settled into a low-key life together. The Revenge Body star began to spend more time in Cleveland supporting her man. She was there when Thompson picked up his Championship ring that year. They even did a couple’s costume, she as Storm and he’s Black Panther, for Halloween. Each one started popping up even more on the other social media accounts, as their relationship bloomed and they were no longer hiding it.
In December 2016, Thompson’s ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig—who he reportedly left to be with Kardashian—gave birth to his first child Prince. However, he still spent most of the holiday season in Los Angeles with the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Their love for each other grew, as the good American designer starts to reveal more about how she loves life in Cleveland with her man.
By spring 2017, Kardashian and Thompson were still going strong and not afraid to showcase their love. She threw him an extravagant and massive 26th birthday party in March. Then in April, she gushed about him to ES magazine, where Khloé admitted she would marry him at the moment he asked. She also revealed they already talked about starting a family together.
Fast-forward to July when the reality star found out she is going to be a mom for the first time. The couple told their families they are having a baby in a joint family BBQ, which was later featured on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In September, reports surfaced saying Khloé was pregnant. She kept fans speculating for months. Then right after Christmas 2017, she confirmed the couple was expecting their first child together in an Instagram post.
For the next three months, the reality star continued to embrace her pregnancy and share her joy with fans on social media. A two-night KUWTK event in January documented how she found out she was pregnant. On the season finale of the hit E! show in March, Kardashian was shocked to find out she was having a baby girl. Fans were equally as shocked since media reports claimed she was having a boy.
