Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their first child together about a month ago. Khloe announced her name, True Thompson, on her Instagram and it was met with lots of jokes. Right before she was born Tristan was caught cheating on Khloe, so yeah you could imagine how Twitter reacted to True’s name.
The Kardashians’ kids names are always suspect to a bit of ridicule at first. When North West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s firstborn, name was announced Twitter nearly exploded. After the internet had a field day with True’s name grand-momager, Kris Jenner came to the rescue and explained True’s name.
“FUN FACT… my Grandfather’s name on my Dad’s side was True Otis Houghton….my real Dad’s name was Robert True Houghton…so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!” she tweeted.
Now Khloe has cleared up the WHOLE story about True’s name and how she picked it and who was the first to suggest the name. Khloe shared the story of how she picked True’s name on her app.
“Pick a name for your child is really so tough!” Khloe posted. Even though picking a name is so hard she always knew she wanted her daughter to have a name that started with a “T” matching her last name initial, similar to Khloe’s matching initials.
“I knew I wanted my baby to have a “T” initial, so one night while we were all at dinner thinking of some names, my grandma MJ suggested “True.”” MJ is Khloe’s maternal grandmother is sometimes subjected to the Kardashians schemes on their show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Recently she was part of Kim’s KKW Beauty concealer campaign.
