The Good American co-founder has officially changed her son’s name from the initial ‘Baby Kardashian’ on the birth certificate to Tatum Thompson.

Khloé Kardashian, 39, rose to fame as a reality TV star on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and The Kardashians – alongside sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

Khloé has also made headlines for being involved in a number of high-profile relationships, including being married to former basketball player Lamar Odom.

But it’s with her recent partner, fellow basketball star Tristan Thompson, that has seen a series of ups and downs along their journey, including a number of extremely heated cheating allegations.

However, they have navigated the challenges and continue to co-parent their two children together.

According to People magazine, The Kardashians star has officially altered her child’s name from the initial ‘Baby Kardashian’ on the birth certificate to Tatum Thompson.

As per the outlet, a judge in Los Angeles County approved the name change on Thursday.

At the time of Tatum’s birth, Khloé had not yet settled on a name for the child which is why fans began to speculate and guess the name she had originally chosen.

In July 2022, the pair welcomed Tatum through a surrogate. They also share a five-year-old daughter named True.

She initially bestowed her son the legal surname of Kardashian upon his birth, but TMZ reported in June that she subsequently altered his surname to Thompson.

During that period, the site indicated that the baby initially had a different first name, although they couldn’t verify what that name was.

It has been widely reported that the athlete got another woman, Maralee Nichols, pregnant after Khloé and Thompson had already chosen to use a surrogate to carry Tatum.

Additionally, the reality star recently discussed her struggle to form a bond with her newborn son, Tatum, during an episode of The Kardashians.

She emphasised the unique connection a woman has with her baby, explaining: “The baby actually feels your real heart – think about it. It touches your organs.

“There’s no one else on this planet that will feel you from the inside like that – like, your heart.”

She added that people can connect with their children in different ways – and mentioned how with True it took her a couple of days to come to terms that she was her daughter.
