Khloe Kardashian's family have rushed to be by her side after the pregnant star started having early contractions on Wednesday. In the wake of the news boyfriend Tristan Thompson has been cheating on her, TMZ reports that the mum-to-be has been joined by her mum Kris Jenner in Cleveland, while sister Kim Kardashian and other family members are set to fly out later in the week on Thursday and Friday. Earlier in the week, Tristan was videotaped allegedly getting close to a woman in New York on Saturday night, seemingly kissing a brunette at the PH-D Lounge in Manhattan. The pair are then seen entering his hotel at 5am in a video released by TMZ and The Shade Room.

The KUWTW star and her basketball player boyfriend are expecting a baby girl, their first child together. Khloe, 33, announced the happy news in December in a heartfelt Instagram post alongside a picture of her baby bump. "My greatest dream realised. We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient."

It was later revealed that Khloe was having a baby girl in the finale of the latest series of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The doctor shared the baby's gender with her younger sister Kylie Jenner, since the expectant mother was visiting San Francisco with Kim. "I don't feel like I'm having a girl," Khloe later said, after Kylie delivered the news. "I don't feel like I'm having a girl at all. I'm, like, in a state of shock."
