Grandma-of-12 Kris Jenner has compared her grandson to her late ex-husband, Robert Kardashian Snr.
Kris shared four children with Robert; Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Robert Junior, and later welcomed another two daughters, Kendall and Kylie, with Caitlyn Jenner - who identified as Bruce Jenner at the time of their marriage.
Khloé welcomed her son Tatum with her former partner Tristan Thompson via surrogate in July 2022.
Tatum's arrival came four years after the former flames had their first child, four-year-old daughter True.
While True has an uncanny resemblance to her basketball star father, Kris thinks Tatum looks more like Khloé's late father.
Speaking on the latest episode of The Kardashians, Kris labelled Tatum as 'the spitting image of [Khloé's] dad and brother'.
"It's freaking me out," she added.
Chatting in her confessional, Kris further marvelled: "Tatum is Robert Kardashian Sr.
"He is my ex-husband in a baby form, even his little mannerisms, his little smile, the way he looks at me."
She went on: "I look through those eyes and I see his little soul, and I'm like, 'Yup, there he is. The DNA is real'."
Khloé herself has echoed similar sentiments previously and said of how baby Tatum reminds her of her brother and dad.
Replying to someone on X who said it was 'crazy' how much Tatum looks like her Robert Snr, Khloé said: "He’s the sweetest most affectionate little man. He really reminds me of my dad and my brother. It’s beautiful."
Elsewhere, another person penned: "Tatum is like a mini version of Rob!! So cute."
"He does look like a mini Rob Kardashian (brother)," said another.
Ahead of Tatum's arrival, Khloé admitted that she was struggling with what moniker she wanted to give her son.
"At first, I really did not know what I was going to name him," the mum-of-two explained on season three of The Kardashians.
“I wanted to meet him and feel him out a little bit. And so, at first, he didn’t have a name," Khloé went on.
"Then, he’s been named, but I’ve been waiting for the premiere of our show, and I didn’t know it was going to be this far out, so now, if my daughter outs me, I’m screwed.”
It's reported that on Tatum's birth certificate he was initially down as 'Baby Kardashian'.
His name was only legally changed to Tatum Thompson in September 2023, 13 months on from his birth.
