As RadarOnline.com readers know, Tristan Thompson was busted making out with a series of other women days before Khloe, 34, delivered their daughter. But despite the family’s rage over the matter, the Revenge Body star ordered them to let her have her child in peace.
“It’s important for me to stick to my birthing plan, because this is something that I’ve waited for my entire life,” Khloe said about the big day.
“I don’t want to take away anything from this moment. I’ve always been a big believer of don’t make permanent decisions off of temporary emotions. I want Tristan here with me, I want to experience this magical moment,” she insisted.
Khloe even live-Tweeted during the episode, echoing that sentiment.
“Regardless of what Tristan did to me, I was never going to take that moment away from True or Tristan. She should not be punished for his actions. He is her father and they both deserve to love one another as deeply as they possibly can #KUWTK,” she wrote.
So despite the NBA star’s infidelity, Khloe didn’t ban him from being a part of the birth.
“I want this for me and my daughter, and for him, at the end of the day,” she confessed on KUWTK.
“I’m mature enough to say that. I’m mature enough to put personal feelings aside. Me and Tristan will deal with him and I at a later time, when this isn’t affecting our child.”
“The vibe in the room is calm. I thought there would be way more tension,” Kim, 38, said. “As much as I want to go off, I just don’t think it’s the time. So, I’m going to keep it cute. I don’t have to have a lot of interaction, I just have to be there for her.”
Dr. Thais Aliabadi delivered the baby with the momager’s help, while Tristan, 27, cut his daughter’s umbilical cord.
Khloe was emotional about the event after the fact during her confessional, saying: “You’re experiencing a miracle take place. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom, and I think I came to the place where I didn’t know if that was actually going to happen for me, so the fact that we’re in a delivery room — for myself this time, for me to give birth — it’s just unreal.”
She continued: “I feel so blessed. This is something that I’ve waited for forever. I can’t wait to meet her and just spend the rest of my life with her. The minute I met my daughter — I cannot believe I’m even saying the words ‘my daughter’ — I was so in love with her. She’s just perfect.”
Khloe said that she didn’t know how her family would react and handle the situation, but they didn’t disappoint her.
“I was so anxious about having everybody in the hospital room because it was really crucial and important for me that it was a very healthy, happy, positive experience. And everyone put their differences aside for that moment. I’m really grateful for that. But obviously, there’s a big elephant in the room,” she admitted.
And despite her sisters pressuring her, Khloe refused to say whether she and Thompson would last as a couple.
“My focus is not if we’re going to be together or not. My focus is just on my daughter and having these beginning moments with my daughter and seeing him be such a great father to her — that’s really what’s important to me,” she said.
Khloe said that Tristan wanted to have a conversation with her mom and sisters off camera and she agreed, admitting that he did things differently than the famous family — who shares just about everything on television.
“I’ve always been very respectful that this is not Tristan’s career, and having conversations like this isn’t comfortable for him on camera,” Khloe explained. “He might not want to be as vulnerable as he normally would in private. Me and Tristan will deal with this at a later time, because there are some things [that are] deeper than being documented. It takes more time than just an episode,” Khloe continued.
“It’s so much harder to deal with it when it’s so public. Everyone is giving you their opinions and their input and their unsolicited advice,” she said. “Even the nurses and the doctors, everyone kind of like, looking sideways at the whole situation. That’s hard, and it’s humiliating.”
But she knew that she couldn’t ignore what Tristan did.
“He obviously f**ked up, major, but I’m not sure how I feel about everything right now,” she said. “In two weeks, I might be like, ‘You know what? I don’t trust you and this isn’t for me.’ Or I might say, ‘This is perfect. Let’s keep it going.’ ”
Kim went back to Los Angeles and told her cousin that the conversation with Tristan was difficult.
“I told him, ‘I think you’re more remorseful because it’s affecting your job.’ I think he’s more embarrassed that he looks stupid, because of the public … booing him. And I think it’s more of that than anything, and I told him that.”
She said the situation turned tense.
“I think the convo was going okay at the beginning and then it got heated. I don’t know, it just kind of took a left turn,” Kim confessed. “Overall, I think it was definitely necessary for us to let out how we all felt, and since he is the father of Khloé’s baby, I definitely wanted to take the time to hear what he had to say.”
Days after the scandal, Kim appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about Tristan’s cheating.
Kim told the talk show host what Thompson did was “so f**ked up,” and when she told Khloe it was a sad conversation.
“It is f**ked up. And he’s a complete piece of sh*t,” she admitted.
“Honestly, you can feel however you want, but I’ve got other sh*t to deal with right now,” Khloe responded.
Thompson was not pleased with Kim’s interview, telling Khloe that he thought she was an “instigator.”
“I unfollowed him on Instagram,” Kim told Kourtney, 39.
“I literally wrote to [Khloe] and said, ‘Look, let’s change the subject. I love you and I support you, but I’m done with him. Over it.’ She just should have stood her ground.”
Kourtney was less harsh about the situation and referenced Scott Disick‘s cheating.
“She should just do what’s in her heart and she should either give it a chance — if that’s what makes her feel best for her family, I’ve been there,” Kourtney confessed.
“I don’t think his intentions are right. I don’t think he’s going to change,” Kourtney continued. “But I’m just saying, if she wants to feel like she’s trying for her own heart and know that she’s doing her best, then I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I think it takes a lot more strength to hang in there and try for your family than to just walk away.”
Kim finally decided she had to support her sister.
“I won’t make her feel bad about anything, but I just generally don’t care to be around him,” Kim said. “Whatever makes her happy. I’ll stay out of the way.”

In case you somehow had not heard, Tristan Thompson is a total pumpkin eater.
The guy has cheated a lot, is what we're saying.
And Sunday night's new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians focused on the fallout from the basketball player's unethical actions.
“This is crazy,” said Khloe to Tristan upon seeing him in person for what appeared to be the first time since his infidelity scandal broke.
And by broke, we mean it went crazy viral and the entire world found out he had been sleeping with woman behind Khloe's back.
While was pregnant.
The interactions between Khloe and Tristan continue to get crazier and more awkward on this installment once Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner arrived.
Inside the hospital room -- because Khloe discovered Tristan was a cheater TWO DAYS BEFORE GOING INTO LABOR -- tensions were clearly high.
Everyone tried very hard not to mention the fact that they had seen literal video evidence of Thompson kissing other women.
At one point, Kim was standing behind Tristan and menacingly sliced her finger across her neck, as you can see in the clip below.
Yes, she and her loved ones played nice in front of their sister, who wanted a peaceful delivery, but it was often a challenge not to basically attack Thompson.
"This is something I've been waiting for my entire life," Khloe told the camera of having a child, adding:
"I don't want to take away anything from this moment, and I have always been a believer of 'Don't make permanent decisions off temporary emotions.'
"I want to experience this magical moment, and I want this for me and my daughter and for him at the end of the day."
Eventually, with her strong mother pushing through the pain, True Thompson was born.
We got to witness her first few moments of life, along with a quick kiss between her parents.
Khloe commented on her amicable attitude toward her cheating boyfriend in a testimonial saying:
“With Tristan, my focus is not whether we’re going to be together or not. My focus is on my daughter and … seeing him be a really great father to her.”
Which is not to say there wasn't a lot of anger on her part.
While still in the hospital, Khloe vented to her sisters at one point as follows:
“It’s a lot harder to filter through this stuff when it’s so public and when I gave birth the following day.
"Everyone is giving you their opinions and their input and their own unsolicited advice.”
She commented that she felt the “doctors and nurses” knew what was going on and called the whole phenomenon “humiliating.”
We seriously can only imagine.
A few days after the birth, Kim, Kourtney and Kris had a serious off-camera family discussion with Thompson.
“He was very remorseful," Kris claimed of her quasi son-in-law, but Kim wasn't so certain.
"I think he’s more embarrassed that he looks stupid," she said, while both sides wondered how many more women would be revealed as Thompson mistresses.
We were also taken back to Kim's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, during which she referred to Tristan’s affair as “so f–ked up."
She then made a point to call Khloe (something we did not previously know) and give her a heads-up about her statement.
Khloe replied: “I mean, it is f-cked up and he’s a complete piece of sh-t."
Finally, while speaking with Kourtney, Kim vented that Tristan had called her “an instigator” for going on Ellen.
He really did have that kind of nerve!
“I unfollowed him on Instagram. … I’m like done. Done with him. Over it," she said.
The episode concluded up with Kourtney showing sympathy for her sister’s turmoil, commenting that she’d “been there” with Scott Disick.
Kind of. Sort of. We never thought we'd say this, but:
Tristan Thompson makes Scott Disick look like a responsible saint.
