Kris Jenner reveals the real reason Khloe named her baby girl 'True'
Last week, it was revealed that Khloe Kardashian had given birth. While this was headline news in its own right, it also brought the end to the Kardashian Circus that has rampaged its way across Westen news outlets over the past few months, with the scheming genius Kris Jenner serving as the maestro.
Everything, from the announcements, the rumours and the scandals was handled and executed with frightening levels of precision. Whether it was Kylie Jenner going incognito for months on end, Kim "accidentally" revealing the baby's gender or Khloe Kardashian's relationship seemingly falling apart in the build-up to her labour, there was an air of consumerism about the whole process.
If you were unaware, in the days leading up to Khloe giving birth, stories began to circulate in the press that Tristan Thomspon - Khloe's boyfriend and baby daddy - was cheating on the reality TV star. Of course, everyone felt sorry for Khloe and, seeing the scope to generate some serious venue and views, Jenner decided to get the camera crew around and film her reaction to the scandal.
Now, without sounding too much like a Kris Jenner cynic here, if this isn't a headline-generating story, then I don't know what is. The video of Tristan Thomspon cheating on Khloe is from way back in October but it's been leaked in the build-up to her delivery and during the process of filming a new series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Essentially, the Devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder.
But aside from engineering scandals and headlines, Jenner is also a mother of five extremely successful women. While she may be a savvy businesswoman herself, she also steps in when her children are on the receiving end of trolling online.
Due to the nature of the events leading up to the birth of Khloe's child, the name that the couple picked for their daughter has raised a few eyebrows. Opting for the name "Truth," plenty of Twitter users were quick to crack the same joke.
But while we may all mock the name, Jenner has opened up on the reasoning behind the name, praising her daughter for her choice.
“I’m so excited to welcome my precious little granddaughter True!!!" Jenner wrote on Instagram on Monday. "FUN FACT… my Grandfather’s name on my Dad’s side was True Otis Houghton….my Dad’s name was Robert True Houghton…so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!”
So there you have it, there's actually quite a sweet reason behind the name "True". Unfortunately the same can't be said for the other celebrity baby names that we have seen this year. And besides, if you do feel like mocking little baby True every now and then, just remember that she is more popular than you. Jenner linked to True's new Instagram account and she has already racked up over 120,000 followers.
What a time to be alive.
