Khloé Kardashian is officially a mom.
The 33-year-old reality star welcomed her first child, a daughter, with NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson on Thursday, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE. The news came two days after allegations surfaced that Thompson was seen kissing multiple other women and a source calling him “a serial cheater.”

In fact, she didn’t even publicly announce that she was expecting until December, when she already had a sizable baby bump. But after a sibling vacation in Tokyo, Kardashian turned all of her attention to parenthood.
Here’s a look back at how Kardashian spent her final weeks as a mom-to-be.
