Khloe Kardashian is one of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood. Tristan Thompson is one of the biggest players in the NBA. Unfortunately for Thompson, we mean that phrase very literally. When you combine his disappointing play on the court with his lucrative contract, you get left with a player who has perhaps more baggage than the entire Kardashian clan.
The two have been slam dunking on each other since September 2016 and after months of speculation, confirmed earlier this year that they will be having their first child together in 2018. Which means that we hope Tristan is used to the paparazzi following his every move because there's no way he's ever getting unattached from that family. Though when you check out how drop dead gorgeous Khloe looks in some of these photos, as well some seriously steamy secrets she's revealed about her most intimate moments, you're definitely going to think Thompson is a winner.
We also reveal all the details about their bumping history, including the shocking way they met, their nerdier Halloween costumes and LeBron's hilarious opinion on Keeping Up With The Kardashians showing up at a team practice.
15 They Embraced Marvel For Halloween
Khloe Kardashian looks tremendous whenever she is wearing a normal outfit. But her heat factor may get dialed up even higher when she puts on a costume for Halloween. While we'll also spend some time talking about her run on Daenerys, that isn't the only awesome character she has portrayed on Halloween.
Back in October 2016 when Khloe and Tristan's relationship was just starting out one of their most public displays of affection came when the two dressed up as Storm and Black Panther. The two partied it up at a nightclub with close friends and were seen getting all up on each other's business throughout the night.
14 How The Public Started Learning About Their Relationship
Perhaps fitting for a relationship that starts with a Kardashian girl, the paparazzi were on hand to catch the very beginning. The rumour mill started spinning with reports in September 2016 that the two were seen leaving a local nightclub, Bootsy Bellows, together.
Evidence started to pile up that the two were an item later in the month when the two were spotted enjoying themselves in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Though if you were on the beach with Khloe, you'd probably have a large smile on your face too! We suppose they have at least one solid location to consider when planning their future honeymoon.
13 She Loves Dirty Talk In Bed
There are many different styles that you may choose to employ when you are bumping it up with someone in the bedroom. But if you're Tristan Thompson, you better hope you don't mind being vocal. When talking about her preferences in bed back in February 2016, Khloe mentioned: "I believe in dirty talk. Communicating during [intimacy] is a MUST, and I actually think it's rude if you're not vocal, LOL. If my guy isn't vocal, I'm not excited. How am I supposed to know if he's enjoying himself ???". She went on to say "If I'm with someone who's not vocal during [intimacy], I'll legit say, 'Do you like this?' in the middle of it," she explained. "If the person is silent, I'm like, 'This is awkward. I feel like I'm violating you!!!' This isn't f**king work, honey! Enjoy it or get out!!!"
12 Their First Date Was A Blind Date
You can imagine that getting the opportunity to have a date with someone as famous as Khloe Kardashian would have been pretty intimidating. Now imagine how intimidating it would be if you knew that you were going on a blind date with her!
That was the exact setting for how Khloe and Tristan first started their connection. When recalling the story of their first date on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe revealed to sister Kim that her best friend Malika Haqq and Brandon Jennings (who also played in the NBA) helped set up their meeting: "I was at the Bel-Air hotel. [Tristan] came to the dinner because I didn't want to go on a blind date, so Brandon [Jennings] kind of ambushed the blind date. So, I had a bunch of people and he brought him and we just connected."
11 Her BFF Loves Him
You aren't going to get very far in a relationship with a woman if you cannot also be friends with the people that are the closest to her. For Khloe that doesn't just include her family, but also her BFF Malika.cThankfully for Tristan, when Malika was asked to give her thoughts on their relationship and his ability to be a strong partner, Malika was all praise: "He’s the coolest guy in the world — and you know, Khloé’s always loved basketball...I think — you know what, I think it’s the feeling. You know how people say it’s the look? It’s really cliché, but it just looks really good." Malika was definitely speaking the truth when talking about Khloe's love of the NBA. She was married to Lamar Odom and also had a lay-up with James Harden.
10 Her Nickname For Him Is Daddy
Now we don't know if this is a preference that continues into the bedroom, but it definitely seems to be very clear that Khloe loves calling Tristan her "Daddy". She first made reference to the 'nickname' for him back in June with the above photo. At the time, there definitely would have been no indication that she was pregnant, though perhaps they were trying?
She also referred to him as "her daddy" in a Snapchat that she shared out on Halloween; which people took to be an indication that she was pregnant, but could perhaps have just been her expressing her nickname.
9 The 2 Craziest Places Khloe Has Gotten Down
Now to be fair, this is more of a Khloe Kardashian fact and less of a Tristan Thompson one, but perhaps he's going to use this information to help spice up his own intimate life with her. When talking about her 3 wildest intimate experiences in April 2016, she revealed she had made love on a private plane, while in a moving car (someone else was driving) and on the marble countertop in her kitchen.
When going into detail of the first encounter, Khloe revealed: "Doing it on a private plane is great, especially when there are other passengers on board. It's part of the thrill! I walked into the bathroom first and then he followed so it wasn't exactly stealth, haha!!! Everyone obviously knew what was going on in and when I walked out, they asked if we had fun." She also loved the kitchen counter, but as you'll also read, the car was a no go!
8 They Announced Their Pregnancy On Instagram
My greatest dream realized! 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. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️
Khloe Kardashian was at the centre of pregnancy rumours for seemingly months before she finally confirmed to the world that she was pregnant. And how did she do it? Well, she's a Kardashian, so perhaps it was obvious that she was going to involve social media in some way! Taking to Instagram, Khloe shared the above photo along with a long caption expressing her future excitement. Tristan has also spoken out about his excitement, saying: "I love you soo much and I know our little angel feels the love we share together and will know that mommy and daddy loves them unconditional forever and ever amen."
7 She Doesn't Mind The Backdoor
There are many women out there who are very adamant that their "backdoor" is something that is being used for an "exit only" type situation involving the toilet. But for Khloe Kardashian, she revealed to Howard Stern that she has been open to allowing for some action back there. She did admit that sometimes it hurts, but there are definitely ways to minimize that element. Plus, you would hope that with the loving and caring relationship that she and Tristan have that she would be able to communicate when the pain outranked the amount of pleasure going on!
6 She's Going To Keep Working Out During Pregnancy
Khloe Kardashian is no stranger to having strangers give their opinion on what she should, or shouldn't be doing with her life. Now that she has officially confirmed her pregnancy, it seems that people are getting even more opinionated.
One area that Khloe is definitely not backing down on though, is her affinity for working out; especially now that she is expecting. Hitting back at critics who hated on her recent social media posts, Khloe said: "For the ones who think they are physicians all of a sudden *face palm* but MY doctor and I communicate and my workouts are cleared and highly recommended. Thanks kiddos! Don't make me stop sharing s**t."
5 She Doesn't Enjoy Bumping It Up In A Car
It's clear from some of the blurbs on our list that Khloe Kardashian seems to have a fairly active bedroom life. But one place that she'd recommend not getting down? In a moving car! "Someone else was driving and I was in the backseat, but I'm a tall girl so it feels cramped and it hurts my fu*king knees. Getting down in a moving car is a waste of time, because nothing happens for me. I just don't get to the finish line! If you're down for a thrill, then by all means, but this one gets a low rating from me!" Considering Tristan is nearly 6'8, we're sure he would agree with the feeling that it gets too cramped in a car!
4 LeBron James Hates The Show
One of the aspects of bumping it up with the Kardashians is knowing that you are probably going to have to make some appearances alongside them on their reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Khloe and her former husband Lamar Odom even had their own reality show dedicated to their relationship.
We're sure if Tristan Thompson's NBA career was going smoother, that a reality show dedicated to his success could have also been in the works. One person who apparently isn't a fan of the reality show is Thompson's teammate LeBron James. When the film crew showed up at a team workout, LeBron was heard loudly exclaiming that the s**t show is here!
3 They Went As Game of Thrones Characters For Halloween
Khloe Kardashian knows that whenever she steps out for a night on the town, that all eyes are probably going to be on her (or members of her family). And that reality becomes all the more apparent when you're going out to celebrate something like Halloween. Earlier this year Khloe and Tristan turned heads everywhere they went with arguably the best couple costume of the year; dressing as Daenerys and Khal Drogo. We're sure Khloe was thankful that she managed to end the night wearing more clothes (at least in public!) than her counterpart Emilia Clarke.
2 She Loves Being In Cleveland
One of the biggest debates that a couple can have, is where are they going to "set up shop" and raise a family. And while Khloe Kardashian may have the money to live anywhere in the world, when talking to Jimmy Kimmel, Khloe admitted she does have a certain level of attachment to the Cleveland area as well, "I’m [in Cleveland] very often. I actually really do [like being in Cleveland]. I actually really like it. I like just having my routine and being a little more under the radar. It’s nice.” We can definitely understand her point of there being a lot less paparazzi attention on her in comparison to Los Angeles!
1 She Prefers Someone Who Is Noticeable Downstairs
Now we need to be upfront, we have no idea on the general size, shape or surface area that is covered by Tristan Thompson's "gentleman". But because Khloe Kardashian decided to do an interview with Howard Stern, we know that she has a preference for men who are a little bit more apparent in the pants area. Along with admitting she once stopped a hot and heavy makeout session, "I've dated someone, and we made out. And over the pants, I did not really feel much of anything so I just ended the night." If it helps, Khloe did go on to say, "I don't want anyone with an eeny, tiny one. But if you know what you're doing then you still know what you're doing."
