'Keeping up with the Kardashians' is going to air footage of Khloé Kardashian's birth
If Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi is A New Hope, Kim Kardashian's third child Chicago West was The Empire Strikes Back, then you could say by way of clumsy, convoluted-Star Wars-analogy, that Khloé Kardashian's newborn baby will be the Return of the Jedi in this trilogy of high-profile Kardashian pregnancies.
While Kylie Jenner giving birth came relatively out of nowhere to huge fanfare (similar to the first Star Wars, which came out in 1977) and Chicago West was welcomed into this world quietly and effectively, Khloé Kardashian's first child has emerged against the backdrop of alleged infidelity from Khloé's baby-daddy, basketball star Tristan Thompson.
If, for some reason, all this baby news has passed completely over your head and you've missed all the drama that seems to follow every Kardashian selfie, statement or scandal, then fear not. The chance to see Khloé wailing in either the pain of labor or infidelity will soon come around once more, and you'll be able to watch it in glorious HD.
Yes, that's right folks: not only were a film crew present to capture the miracle of childbirth, but some of that footage will be used in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, according to People magazine. Not only that, but cameras also captured the ongoing fallout of Khloé Kardashian's reaction to Tristan's tryst over the past few days.
"Khloe labored with [mom] yesterday at the hospital. Tristan was there for the birth," a source for the show said to People, "He has practice today, but will spend as much time at the hospital as possible." While it isn't quite clear when the footage will come to light, you can imagine it'll be at some point during this current season.
As Tristan returned to the basketball court to boos and jeers at the latest Cleveland Cavaliers game, spare a thought for the youngest of the Original Trilogy of the Kardashian women. The 33-year-old Khloé Kardashian was reportedly "devastated" to learn the father of her first child was cheating on her, but in the euphoria of new motherhood, a source says that Khloé isn't even thinking about the infidelity at this moment in time.
"Absolutely nothing else matters. She's so incredibly happy that her baby is here, that she is big and strong and healthy and beautiful, and so right now Khloe truly has no other cares in the world. She isn't even mad at Tristan right now."
Adding that Khloé is in a "bubble of love" right now, the source says that Khloé is willing to forgive Tristan for what she believes were little more than drunken hookups that "meant nothing", blaming "stupid groupies trying to trap him" for the reports of cheating.
Once the dust settles, it remains to be seen if Khloé retains that particular viewpoint, but the new mom is just happy to be with her daughter, and for now, absolutely nothing can overshadow this beautiful moment.
