Khloe Kardashian appears to be back on track when it comes to her relationship with Tristan Thompson, but a source tells ET that Thompson did some groveling before getting back into Kardashian's good graces.
The 33-year-old reality star has been in Cleveland, Ohio, since giving birth to their daughter, True, just days after reports surfaced of Thompson allegedly hooking up with other women while Kardashian was pregnant.
"Right after the baby was born she almost called it quits with Tristan, but he begged her back," the source says. "He professed his love and apologized.”
Clearly, it appears to have worked. Kardashian has been spotted out with the 27-year-old NBA star in Cleveland, and also publicly supported him by attending the Cleveland Cavaliers playoff game this past Saturday against the Toronto Raptors.
"Khloe has no plans to leave Tristan, she loves him and she is doing everything in her power to make this relationship work," the source says. “Khloe has waited a very long time to have a baby and she never envisioned herself as a single mother. She wants the whole package and she isn't going to let Tristan's behavior ruin her lifetime dream.”
"Tristan has apologized repeatedly to Khloe and she wants to trust him," the source adds. "Ever since he was unfaithful, she has kept him on a short leash. The video proof of him with other women broke her heart, and she almost left him, but he begged for another chance."
According to the source, Kardashian is even willing to have more children with Thompson -- though her family remains skeptical of their relationship.
"Tristan has admitted he would love a couple more children and Khloe would definitely make baby number two with Tristan, but her family is scared he will just disappoint her again," the source says. "They feel Khloe isn't being realistic because she doesn't think he will. Khloe feels she has everything under control and has told her family she loves them, but to back off and let her handle things.”
"Right now her friends are supportive and relieved she's dedicated herself to the life she wants because she seems happy, but like her whole family, they worry Tristan will cheat and ruin everything," the source continues.
On Wednesday, Thompson opened up about daughter True for the first time during an appearance on UNINTERRUPTED's Road Trippin' Podcast with NBA player Richard Jefferson and sports reporter Allie Clifton. The athlete is also a dad to his 1-year-old son, Prince, with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
"I think with a girl, you're just so much more emotionally like... With a boy, it's just like, 'Hey, man. You'll be all right, man. Stop crying,'" he said about the difference between raising his daughter and his son. "But [with True], it's like, 'True, it's gonna be OK. You know, we're right here. Daddy's here to feed you. It's me! Look, yeah!' It's way different, but it's fun, though. It changes you."
He also said he definitely wants more kids.
"I'm gonna keep going," he said. "I've got a couple more left."
