Rob Kardashian Gushes Over Sister Khloe’s Son’s ‘Chubby Cheeks’ – Ericatement

Rob Kardashian has a special connection with his nephew Tatum Thompson.

“Chubby cheeks,” Rob, 36, exclaimed in a Friday, November 10, Instagram Story video shared by his sister Khloé Kardashian.

In Khloé’s social media footage, her 15-month-old son played in a ball pit at Rob’s daughter Dream’s birthday party. Tatum adorably looked up to see his uncle approaching in the distance.

“Say, ‘Uncle Bob,’” Khloé, 39, cooed to her son, whom she shares with ex Tristan Thompson. Rob replied, repeatedly saying “hi” to Tatum.

Khloé and Thompson, 32, welcomed their second baby together via surrogate in July 2022. (They also share daughter True, 5. In addition, Thompson shares son Prince, 6, with Jordan Craig and son Theo, 22 months, with Maralee Nichols.)

Following Tatum’s birth, many members of Khloé’s family pointed out that he closely resembled Rob and their late father, Robert Kardashian.

“Tatum is Robert Kardashian Sr.,” Kris Jenner quipped during a confessional in the Thursday, November 9, episode of The Kardashians. “He is my ex-husband in a baby form, even his little mannerisms, his little smile [and] the way he looks at me.”

Kris added: “I look through those eyes and I see his little soul, and I’m like, ‘Yup, there he is. The DNA is real.’”

Both Khloé and sister Kim Kardashian also see the family resemblance.
