What We Know About Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson’s Romance

Introducing your S.O. to the family is always a stressful process, but the stakes are higher when you’re a Kardashian. As if having your life broadcast on reality TV weren’t enough, the Kardashian siblings (and mother!) are frequently in each other’s business. As a result, Khloé’s been extra discreet about her relationship with Cleveland Cavaliers forward, Tristan Thompson.
After five months of dating, though, the big day finally came: Khloé introduced Tristan to her family on last night's premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and bore the brunt of Kim’s incessant questioning. Khloé seems to be having fun withholding information, saying to the camera, “Kim’s my sister. I’m obviously going to tell her eventually, but it’s fun to torture her. She’s tortured me my entire life, so I feel like this is the perfect time to drag this out as long as I possibly can.”

They've been Insta-official since October.

Khloé hinted at her budding relationship with Thompson with a photo of two blinged-out hands. The subtle post set off a hunt to find the identity of this mystery hand. All signs pointed to Tristan.

They spent every major holiday together.

Though Khloé didn’t introduce Tristan to her family until just now, he’s been a big part of her life for a while. The two spent Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve together, with PDA-filled Instagram posts as proof.

They DEFINED Halloween costume goals.

Move over, Marvel. Khloé and Tristan celebrated Halloween as Storm and Black Panther, giving movie makeup artists a run for their money.

Tristan's already connected to the Kardashian clan.

Thompson’s ex-girlfriend, Instagram model Jordan Craig, used to date Tyga, Kylie Jenner's current boyfriend. And so the wild Kardashian family tree continues. We’re going to need a bigger flow chart.

They have a similar fashion sense.

For Christmas, the pair coordinated their wardrobe and donned lavish fur coats.

We weren't kidding about the matching.

Khloé and Tristan wore matching camo in a photo taken last December.

They have a minor age gap.

The Cleveland Cavaliers power forward is 26 years old, so, at 32, Khloé is six years older than her basketball-playing beau. This explains Kim’s comment on the show that Thompson was “a little young.” You go, Khlo!

They're in looove.

According to her blog, Tristan's been instrumental in helping Khloé emerge from her difficult 2016, a year of "realizing things." Khloé wrote, “I think when you're in love you definitely feel happy and healthy" in her January post, Us Weekly reported. She says she's the happiest she's been in years.
