Khloe Kardashian and former partner Tristan Thompson welcomed a son via surrogate in July 2022, but they’ve remained mum on the baby’s name up until now. And while the reality star still hasn’t publicly confirmed what he’s called, The Sun claims to know the answer: Tatum Robert.

Last month, Khloe did drop a hint that she’d decided to give her son a name beginning with the letter T to match her daughter, True. That means his name could very well be Tatum Robert, as it tracks with that trend.

Perhaps what’s even sweeter is that his middle name is Robert. That’s a direct nod not only to her late father, Robert Kardashian, but to her brother Rob, too, with whom she’s always been extremely close.

According to a source, Khloe received a lot of pressure from mom Kris Jenner to give her son the first name Robert. However, she resisted their pleas and instead called the baby Tatum Robert as a sort of compromise.

“There was talk about whether it should be Tatum Robert or should it be Robert Tatum,” a source told the publication. “Some in the family were leaning more towards Robert because it honors her dad and her brother. Kris in particular was keen for the baby to be called Robert and was steering Khloe towards that.”

The insider added: “It took Khloe a little while to settle on the name but ultimately she went with Tatum Robert, which is in keeping with Tristan and True’s names starting with a T. Khloe wanted a name that was kind of unusual but not too out there and also keeping with the T theme.”

The name of Khloe Kardashian’s son was due to be kept a secret until the premiere of Season 3 of “The Kardashians” on Hulu on May 25. Appearing on The Jennifer Hudson Show last month, Khloe said she hoped the name would remain a secret until then. Looks like the cat is out of the bag!
