She kept her baby news under wraps for months, but Khloe Kardashian has finally revealed she’s pregnant with boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s child. In December 2017, she debuted her baby bump on Instagram, along with a loving tribute to the Cleveland Cavaliers center, who she has been dating since the fall of 2016.
Due sometime in early March 2018, the baby will be the first for Kardashian and the second for Thompson. See how the current NBA star’s net worth looks when you compare earnings to other NBA stars.
Tristan Thompson Net Worth: $8 Million
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tristan Thompson’s net worth of $8 million is nearly four times less than Lamar Odom’s $30 million fortune, however, a lot has changed for Odom in the past few years.
After winning the honor for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award in 2011, the Lakers traded Odom to the Dallas Mavericks for $8.9 million and a first-round draft pick, according to ESPN. Odom bounced around to a few different teams, officially retiring from basketball after being waived by the New York Knicks in 2014. On October of 2015, Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. This incident, as well addiction issues, contributed to his divorce from Kardashian, which was finalized in late 2016. Whether Thompson is richer than Odom after such events is unclear, but in terms of a relationship with Kardashian, Thompson is the clear winner.
Khloe’s new beau and future father of her child, Tristan Thompson, is still establishing his legacy in the NBA. Although Thompson has done well for himself as an NBA star, he still has ways to go before he meets the net worth of his girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. Kardashian currently is estimated as being worth at least $40 million — but if Thompson continues his career on the court, he could potentially surpass Kardashian’s eye-opening net worth.
Tristan Thompson’s NBA Career
Before getting Khloe Kardashian pregnant, Tristan Thompson was best known for his basketball skills. He played one year of college basketball at the University of Texas at Austin, before being drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers as the fourth pick in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft.
The 26-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers star is currently in the midst of a five-year, $82 million contract with the team, that takes him through the 2019-2020 season. He’s credited as a major driving force in helping the team win the 2016 NBA title. Only time will tell if he’ll stay in Cleveland or eventually move on to another team.
Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian isn’t Tristan Thompson’s first baby mama. The NBA star is already daddy to a 1-year-old, Prince, with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
In addition to an older brother, Thompson and Kardashian’s baby will also have two cousins almost exactly the same age. Khloe’s older sister Kim Kardashian West is expecting her third child via surrogate in January 2018, according to TMZ. Younger sister Kylie Jenner has yet to confirm her pregnancy, but she’s reportedly due in February 2018, according to The Washington Post.
Kardashian is notoriously close with her famous family and Thompson shares this sentiment. In 2017, the parents-to-be hosted his family for a lavish Thanksgiving dinner in Cleveland, prepared by Khloe. He also founded the Amari Thompson Fund, which supports epilepsy programs and services, in honor of his younger brother who suffers from the neurological disorder.
