Malika Haqq, Khloé Kardashian’s best friend, may have revealed the name of the reality star’s son, as she commented on Kardashian’s latest Instagram post, seemingly confirming that the baby’s name is Tatum.
The Instagram Post
The post contained two photos of the Good American founder carrying the tiny tot in her arms. In the shots, which appeared to be taken in her kitchen, Kardashian sported ripped jeans from her own brand and a graphic shirt that poked fun at older sister Kim Kardashian’s viral Variety interview from last year. Meanwhile, Khloé’s 9-month-old bundle of joy — whose face was turned away from the camera — rocked a cream-colored T-shirt and khaki shorts.
The Name Tatum
Khloé, 38, has shown her infant’s full face only once and has yet to announce his name, but it’s been widely rumored to be Tatum Robert Thompson. There was talk about whether it should be Tatum Robert or Robert Tatum. Some in the family were leaning more towards Robert because it honors her dad and her brother, Rob Kardashian.
Khloé, Rob, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s father, Robert Kardashian, died in 2003 after a battle with esophageal cancer. The Sun’s source went on to say the clan’s momager, Kris Jenner, was “keen” on the name but that it took Khloé “a little while to settle on [it].” “Khloé wanted a name that was kind of unusual but not too out there and also keeping with the T theme,” the source explained.
Reps for the “Kardashians” star did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment. Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the potential name reveal. Some were excited about the name choice, while others were less enthusiastic.
The Birth of Khloé Kardashian’s Son
The mother of two — who also shares 5-year-old daughter True with basketball player Tristan Thompson, 32 — revealed last September that their second child’s moniker was “gonna start with a T.” The on-again, off-again exes welcomed their baby boy via surrogate in July 2022.
