Khloe Kardashian says she feels 'less connected' to her newborn son.
The reality star - who welcomed her second child with Tristan Thompson last summer - finally revealed her son's name in Thursday's (25 May) season three premiere episode of The Kardashians.
She has kept us all guessing for over a year after only revealing last month that her son's name starts with a 'T'.
While appearing on the The Jennifer Hudson Show, Jennifer asked Khloe if she had named her baby boy yet.
To which the mum replied: "Yes, he's named. But I haven't announced it yet.
"He was delivered via surrogate, or the stork I like to say, and at first, I did not know what I was going to name him.
"I wanted to meet him and feel him out a little bit, and so at first, he didn't have a name."
However, Khloe says she's 'been waiting for the premiere of our show' to officially announce his name.
"And I didn't know it was going to be this far out. So now I'm just like, if my daughter outs me, I'm screwed," she joked.
"Would his name start with a T, maybe?" asks Jennifer and Khloe responded: "It will start with a T."
As promised, Khloe revealed her son's name in Thursday's episode of the Hulu show.
While Khloe was attending sister Kendall Jenner's 818 Tequila event, James Corden asks what's new with her.
During the confessional, she finally shares her baby's name, which is - drum roll please - Tatum.
"Naming a human is really hard," the mum-of-two - who shares her son and daughter True, 5, with Tristan - said.
Elsewhere in the episode, Khloe wished people would be more 'honest' about the realities of surrogacy, as Tatum was born via surrogate last July.
The 38-year-old recalled just how 'hard the surrogate process' was for her.
"It was a mindf**k." Khloe said. "It's just the weirdest thing."
"I do think there is a difference when the baby is in your belly, the baby actually feels your real heart. There is no one else on this planet who will feel you from the inside like that," Kim, who used surrogacy for two of her four pregnancies, said.
"People can connect in different ways, some cannot connect."
Scott Disick then asks Khloe: "So do you feel less connected?"
She answers: “Um-hm," and said: "This is not easy."
Khloe admits 'burying her head in the sand' and said that things didn't 'register' until she was on the way to the hospital.
Khloe added: "You're just like, 'Ok, we're having a baby and this is my son and I'm taking him home with me'.
"I definitely was in a state of shock from my entire experience in general.
"I felt really guilty that this woman just had my baby and I take the baby and I go in another room and we are sort of separated.
"I felt that it was such a transactional experience because it's not about him."
"I wish someone was honest about surrogacy and the difference of it. But it doesn't mean it's bad or good. It's still great, just very different."
