Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, who have welcomed their first baby together. Khloe, 33, gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday morning, according to TMZ. She was reportedly supported by her mum Kris Jenner, sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and her best friend Malika throughout her labour. Tristan was also by her side when she gave birth, despite being faced with cheating allegations only a few hours earlier.
This is the first child for Khloe, and the second for Canadian basketball player Tristan, 26, who shares a one-year-old son named Prince Oliver, with his ex-partner Jordan Craig. News of the birth comes just days after Tristan was embroiled in a cheating scandal, with images and footage seemingly showing him being intimate with a mystery woman while on a night out in New York City on 7 April.

We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient."
