Khloe Kardashian names her baby daughter something completely unexpected 😍

Khloé Kardashian's baby girl isn't a KK, but a double T.


True Thompson to be exact. The new mama announced the name Monday, shortly after the baby was born in Cleveland on April 12.

Despite plenty of media coverage about the state of her relationship with True's father, NBA player Tristan Thompson was reportedly present for the birth and was definitely part of his daughter's social media birth announcement.

"Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE," Kardashian wrote in the caption of a photo of dozens of pink balloons. "Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!"

True's name is apparently a family name, according to grandma Kris Jenner.

"My Grandfather's name on my Dad's side was True Otis Houghton....my real Dad's name was Robert True Houghton...so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!" Jenner told fans on Instagram.

Jenner isn't the only family member on the 'gram. An account that shares True's name amassed more than 50,000 followers in the span of an afternoon.

The account is yet unverified, as is the status of True's parents' relationship. But no matter what is going on between Kardashian and Thompson, it's clear this new mama was thrilled to welcome her baby daughter into the world.

Ever since announcing her pregnancy in December, Kardashian has been vocal about how much she was looking forward to motherhood—calling it her "greatest dream realized."

Unlike her little sister Kylie Jenner, who spent her pregnancy away from social media and the spotlight, Kardashian has been sharing her excitement with fans for the last three months, frequently posting updates on social media and even talking about her birth plan on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"We're having the baby in Cleveland," Kardashian told her sister Kim in an episode that aired back in February. "My doctor, she's flying to Cleveland to deliver the baby."

In another episode, Kardashian revealed that she was surprised to learn she was having a girl, as she'd been expecting a boy. "I don't feel like I'm having a girl," she said after hearing the news. "I'm in a state of shock."

When the shock wore off, Kardashian was more than excited about becoming a #girlmom (as evidenced by insanely pink baby shower was any indication).

Kardashian's momager, Kris Jenner was reportedly later seen buying pink baby furniture, but we don't know if that was for the Cleveland nursery or the Calabasas pad, as Kardashian did not post pics of the Cleveland nursery while it was a work in progress. Whatever happens between True's parents, she will likely be making a lot of trips between the two locations.

With the birth of little True the Kardashian baby boom of 2018 has officially come to an end. Kim welcomed baby Chicago in January, Kylie had Stormi in February, and now Khloe's become a mom in April. These are three cousins who are destined to be BFFs.

We can't wait to see a pic of all three.

Mom life demands efficiency. Because while the amount of hours in the day are the same as before kids, now a sizable chunk of that time is spent caring for and loving on those little people. Compromises happen—and let's just be honest, the old beauty routine is one of the first things to get cut.

But, wait! You don't have to sacrifice putting on mascara or, worse, skipping the SPF. Instead, why not flip it, reverse it, and look at the bright side? Here's your opportunity to streamline your morning makeup routine. With some savvy skin care and beauty hacks, you can get your radiant glow on in record time.

Here are our tried-and-true hacks passed down from Motherly mamas:

1. Embrace multipurpose items

If the most pressing issue is limited time, consolidate multiple steps of your beauty routine with a multipurpose item. For example, instead of starting with a SPF moisturizer, followed by spot concealer and a blendable foundation, you can take care of all of that in one go with one of our favorites: Earth Mama's 3-in-one Lady Face™ Tinted Mineral Sunscreen. The beauty stick also allows you to easily fold SPF 40 into your routine, because Lady Face doubles as super-safe, clean sun protection. Even better? The sunscreen blocks blue light from those ever-present digital screens with a ray-scattering, non-nano formula.

2. Revive dried mascara

Especially after a sleepless night (#motherhood), mascara can make a major difference in how well rested you appear to be. If you realize your tube of mascara is dried out, don't write it off as a lost cause. Simply soak the sealed tube in warm water to loosen up the mascara — or add a drop of a multi-purpose saline solution into the tube. That should do the trick until you have time to buy a replacement. (But let's face it: You're a mom. It's okay if you're tired.)

3. Keep coconut oil handy

Coconut oil isn't just for the kitchen. From a DIY hair mask to an in-a-pinch lip balm or naturally removing makeup at the end of the day, coconut oil's cosmetic hack-list is long. For summer, we especially like adding a thin swipe of organic extra virgin coconut oil to the cheekbones at the end of the makeup routine for a bit of an extra glow.

4. Multitask while deep conditioning

If your hair needs a bit of TLC, consider applying a natural, paraben-free deep conditioner before doing chores around the house or even a short workout. By working up a bit of a sweat, the conditioner will set even better before you rinse off in the shower.

5. Start your hair care routine the night before

As you work to find your new normal morning routine, it can help to simply reschedule a task or two—like hair. If you shower the night before, get a jumpstart on your look by blowdrying, straightening or even braiding it for loose waves in the morning.

6. Even out your skin tone

Between multiple wake-ups during the night and wavering hormones, complexion issues can become a thing for most mamas. Thankfully, the hack for managing that is as simple as finding a great foundation that goes on smoothly and doesn't cake or crack through a morning of momming. Scope out the ingredient list for naturally nourishing components like coconut oil, shea butter or beeswax — and skip the stress (and the return process if the shade doesn't match) by going for something that easily blends with most skin tones.

7. Find brands your feel great about

As a mom, you might find yourself considering bigger life questions: Are my cosmetics safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding? Are they helping the world my children will grow up in? Can I trust the ingredients and mission? Pro tip: read the ingredients on all your personal care products, memorize the ones you want to avoid, and look for third-party certification to ensure the product is actually what it says it is. When you find a brand that walks the talk, you're going to want to be loyal.

8. When in doubt, go for a bold lip

With happy hours swapped for play dates, your daily routine may look a bit different than it used to. But who says you have to leave your personal style behind? If you've always been a fan of makeup and going a bit glam, keep going for it, mama! The extra 60 seconds it takes to apply lipstick or whatever else gives you a bit of pep in your step is well worth it.

For all the sweating and swimming I do in the summer, it seems illogical for my skin to be as parched as ever. But your mid-thirties (and 2020 in general) don't really seem to follow any rule book, so here we are.

A couple of months ago, I was on the lookout for a moisturizer that would not only keep my legs from looking like an ashy mess, but also truly nourish and benefit my skin. I've developed a deep interest in skin care for my face over the past few years and decided it's high time to extend that degree of consideration to the rest of my body. (After all, there's more of it, right?)

It's not that I'm too concerned with aging, but let's be real. If there's something that can be done to slow the Wrinkle Express, I'm going to give it a go. I also wanted to find something natural that wouldn't turn into a goopy mess the second I started sweating.

Enter: Esker's Firming Body Oil.
