The name was suggested during the epic baby shower dubbed by Kris Jenner as “Koko’s Wonderland”. Khloe celebrated her daughter’s impending arrival with her sisters and friends in an elaborate party.

The baby shower took place at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles. The pink event was filled to the brim with floral arrangements, balloons and pink lights.

A pink neon sign reading “Baby Thompson” was place on the wall, and the venue was filled with huge trees shaped like elephants to the luxurious chandelier. The event was completely flawless.

Khloe said, “I literally feel like I’m dreaming. There’s no way this baby shower is for me.” On her website, Khloe shared with fans, “We felt so much LOVE from everyone and it is a day I know Tristan and I will never forget. I’m still dreaming.”

The shower was funded and sponsored by Amazon, and Khloe wrote on Instagram for the organization, “Had the most unbelievable baby shower – we felt so much love! #ad So grateful to be surrounded by a beautiful support system.”

During the shower, the guests played a game where they helped new parents-to-be Khloe and Tristan decide on a name for their little girl.

Kris’ mother, MJ, had the winning suggestion. Kim asked her, “Grandma, do you want to help pick a name? True, your grandfather?” MJ replied, “Your grandfather. T-R-U-E.”

As we now know, Khloe ended up picking this name. She announced it after True’s birth on Instagram along with a picture of a pink room with pink flowers, balloons and confetti.

She wrote, “Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”

During the baby shower, Khloe’s mother Kris said in a speech, “Out of all my kids, I worried for a second about whether or not Khloe would have a baby. It’s such an amazing blessing. We are beyond excited and thrilled to welcome my ninth grandchild, that’s a lot of people.”

The celebration was even more special because Khloe had just been getting ready to leave LA for Cleveland, where she would give birth to her daughter. At the time, she was also considering leaving KUWTK and staying in Cleveland with Tristan and her baby.

Khloe told the audience, “I’m leaving L.A. and when I come back, I’m bringing back a baby. That’s crazy, but exciting.”

To entertain her, brother-in-law Scott Disick got up and went to visit her in her new city. He told the audience, “For the longest time, I’ve always wanted to go to Cleveland to see where Khloe lives. But I just didn’t know if there was anything to do there.”

While hanging out, the duo also revived their podcast, The Lord and His Lady, and took a CPR class to learn how to handle issues with babies. During the training, Scott got on Khloe’s nerves.

She said, “I love Scott and I love hanging out with him, but I really want to learn how to give a baby CPR. He’s hamming it up for the podcast, probably more than usual, but it’s f**king annoying right now.”

Khloe later welcomed her baby True Thompson at 4AM on 12 April in a hospital outside Cleveland, just days after Tristan’s cheating scandal took place.

Kris Jenner, Malika Haqq, and Kourtney and Kim Kardashian were present to support their sister. Tristan was also present, though it is unclear whether Khloe’s family talked to him at the time.
