Khloé Kardashian invited Tristan Thompson to visit their baby son in hospital shortly after his birth, despite the cheating scandal that was revealed just months earlier.
In the first episode of the new season of The Kardashians, Khloé, 38, can be seen deliberating whether to allow Tristan, 31, into the hospital room as their surrogate goes into labour.
"I’ve been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured, why not let him come? I’ll never get this moment back," she said.
Another scene shows Tristan holding the little one, telling Khloé that he 'looks like True' - their four-year-old daughter.
Khloé told cameras: "I am so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift that we’re able to have.
"Ever since December, it’s been this dark cloud looming over me. Every single day, I’ve been feeling depressed and sad, and now that my son is here, I get to move on, and I get to enjoy. It’s almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me.
"Now I finally get to start the healing process. Now I get to start enjoying my life with two kids in it and figuring this out. This is gonna be day one, and this is gonna be the start of something positive, and happy and beautiful."
Khloé and Tristan split after his latest cheating scandal, which saw him father a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols.
Their baby boy is thought to have been conceived via surrogate in November 2021, prior to the news that Tristan had fathered a child with another woman.
Nichols announced that she had given birth to Tristan's child in December 2021, alleging they had got together during his birthday celebrations back in March.
One month later, the basketball player confessed he was the father, issuing a public apology to Khloe for his infidelity.
Posting to his Instagram Story at the time, he wrote: “Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.
"I sincerely apologise to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."
The second season of The Kardashians drops on Disney+ on 22 September with a new episode every Thursday.
