When word broke that Tristan Thompson was accused of cheating on Khloé Kardashian right before she gave birth to their first child on Thursday, it shocked fans and reportedly pushed the couple apart.
Neither of them has commented publicly yet on the allegations, but sources say that Khloé is well aware of them, and the couple had not been spending time together since they came to light—until Thursday.
“At this point in time, Khloé doesn’t want to speak with Tristan,” a source told E! News on Wednesday. “And the family is keeping them apart until she goes into labor.”
That distance might have been helpful as they grappled with the accusations, but Khloé still permitted Tristan to be there for the birth of their daughter.
“We’re told Tristan Thompson was present for the birth of the child,” The Blast confirmed.
Before they welcomed their baby girl, there was a rumor that he would be allowed to be there despite the media circus.
“We’re told Khloe’s putting her feelings on hold, realizing for better or worse Tristan is the father of their child and knowing a bond between father and child can be cemented in the delivery room,” TMZ said in advance.
