Despite all the infidelity rumors, the source tells PEOPLE that “Khloé really wants to be able to forgive and trust Tristan again and have the life she hoped to have with him.”
“She doesn’t know if she’ll be able to do that, but that’s the goal. She loves the life they had, she loves the baby they have together, and she still loves the dream of being a family together. If she can find a way to rebuild with Tristan, she will,” the source continues, adding that it “still remains to be seen” whether that’s possible.
Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian
Kardashian’s social media post about her baby name reveal also contained a few hidden signs about the reality star’s current frame of mind regarding her relationship with the NBA player.
“It was very intentional that the statement was basically from the both of them, and reinforces that they are Mommy and Daddy, in this together,” the insider tells PEOPLE.
“The word love was capitalized for a reason too: right now that’s all Khloé has room for her in her heart. This moment is all about love for her,” the insider adds.
While the cheating allegations against Thomspon led fans to speculate whether Khloé’s daughter would still have the surname Thompson, there’s no precedent of the KarJenners deciding not to give their children the father’s last name.
And despite all the relationship issues between Rob Kardashian and ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, the pair also gave their daughter Dream the Kardashian surname, making her Kris’ only grandchild to carry on the Kardashian moniker.
