Khloe Kardashian has spoken up about her struggle to bond with her surrogate kid. In the most recent episode of The Kardashians season three, the 38-year-old reality star opened up to her own mother, Kris Jenner, about her parenting challenges. Kardashian, who had son Tatum via surrogate in July 2022, confessed that she feels less connected to her son born via surrogacy than she does to her daughter True, whom she gave birth to. It took me a few of days with True to realise, OK, this is my daughter, Kardashian stated in episode three. It took me months with him. I adore him and adore children, but we have yet to have a true relationship.
Kardashian also admitted that she feels “guilty” about not bonding with her kid in the same manner that she has with her five-year-old daughter. Why isn’t it the same, I wonder? But I know it will be, and I also know that I don’t treat him any differently. Sometimes I just question myself. Despite her difficulties, Kris Jenner told her daughter that she is “mother of the year” to her two children and the “most attentive person” in the renowned family. Khloe Kardashian has two children with ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson: True and Tatum. In the season three premiere of The Kardashians, which premiered on Hulu on May 25, Kardashian confessed for the first time that using a surrogate to bring son Tatum was a “mindf***.”
Khloé Kardashian admits connection to son Tatum is taking “months” since welcoming him via surrogate:
“The connection took days with True. With him, it’s taking months and we still don’t have a complete bond.”
Khloe Kardashian Has Spoken Up About That She Is Still Having Trouble Bonding With Her Surrogate Baby Tatum
Khloe Kardashian addressed about her inability to bond with her baby son Tatum three months after he was delivered via surrogacy in the latest episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians. Khloe was back in Los Angeles with Tatum while Kim was in Milan and Kourtney and Kendall were in New York City. In the third episode of The Kardashians Season 3 titled Everything Is My Fault!, her mother Kris Jenner visits her. Khloe, who was uncomfortably invited out on a date by Scott Disick last week, acknowledged to Kris, ‘I feel bad,’ since she hasn’t been able to ‘connect’ with her baby three months after his birth. Khloe also confessed to Kris that she has set new limits for her ex/baby’s father Tristan Thompson, stating that she would not remarry him. In last week’s episode, Khloe was uncomfortably invited out on a date by Scott Disick, and she pointed out to Kris, ‘I feel horrible,’ because she hasn’t been able to ‘connect’ with her baby three months after his birth. Khloe also confessed to Kris that she has set new limits for her ex/baby’s father Tristan Thompson, stating that she would not remarry him. Khloe agrees but says she feels ‘guilty’ since it’s not the same, adding that she doesn’t treat him differently, but she does doubt herself occasionally.
Kris adds that she should give herself a break since Khloe is the mother of the year, constantly feeding someone, entertaining someone, or doting on your kids’ every time she comes over. You’re the most considerate of all of us.’ Khloe admits that she wishes she wasn’t so critical of herself because I’m so good to everyone else, but I’m just not kind to myself.’ ‘Being a mum is certainly one of the most amazing feelings ever,’ Khloe confesses, while Kris requests to touch the baby, but Khloe tells him that he could throw up on her. Khloe Kardashian and NBA player Tristan Thompson had an on-again, off-again romance since 2016 until calling it quits in 2021. Thompson cheated on Kardashian on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians just days before their daughter’s birth in 2018. Thompson acknowledged he had a son with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols in January 2022, after she filed a paternity claim against the 32-year-old basketball player. The controversy broke about a month after Kardashian and Thompson’s kid was conceived, according to reports.
it‘s not normal to not feel a genuine parental connection with your child, be it surrogate or not, after MONTHS. she needs to go to like, a family therapist or something because if she doesn‘t treat her problems, the child is gonna suffer in the long run

It’s been like 20 years and the public still doesn’t have a connection with her.

That’s the problem with surrogacy… Remember that the connection with your baby starts when she/he is still in your womb. 🤨

Cause her face and body change every month. She’s unrecognizable for a kid

I don’t think she feels a disconnect with the child deepdown, probably about the situation, sounds like she had another baby as a relationship/marriage saver and it didn’t work out so now she’s projecting onto the child, poor kid :/
