The Kardashians star and Thompson are already parents to a four-year-old daughter, True. Thompson is also the father of two other children: son Prince, 5, with his ex Jordan Craig, and an infant son, Theo, with Maralee Nichols.
Kardashian and Thompson ended their romantic relationship in January after news of Thompson fathering his baby son with Nichols was made public. Thompson initially denied he was the father, then it was revealed via a paternity test that Nichols’ child was his. The baby was born in December 2021 — and was conceived while Thompson and Kardashian were still in a relationship.
