Embedd an if statement into xml Tree building...

I am building an xml tree using xElement.  This is my first time using it.  I have attached a code snippit.  It's not the entire snippit, but the end part.  

objThirdParty can be null.  I need to check if it is null, and if it is, i need to put "" (blank) in that field.  I still must include these nodes, I just need to pass it in blank.  I tried to embedd and if statement inside of the object Content argument of the New xElement and I had some errors saying it was invalid.

Any help would be great.  I basically want to do something like if objEntityShipment.objThirdParty != null then objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.COmpany else "".

If possible, i would like to be able to do this wihout writting that code twice....  One with the object, one without the object.

new XElement("shipto",
                    new XElement("name", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strContactname),
                    new XElement("company", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strCompanyName),
                    new XElement("addr1", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine1),
                    new XElement("addr2", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine2),
                    new XElement("addr3", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine3),
                    new XElement("city", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strCity),
                    new XElement("state", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strState),
                    new XElement("zipcode", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strPostalCode),

I haven't tested this, but see if this works:
new XElement("shipto",
                    new XElement("name", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strContactname),
                    new XElement("company", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strCompanyName),
                    new XElement("addr1", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine1),
                    new XElement("addr2", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine2),
                    new XElement("addr3", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strAddressLine3),
                    new XElement("city", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strCity),
                    new XElement("state", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strState),
                    new XElement("zipcode", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strPostalCode),
                    new XElement("country", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strCountryCode),
                    new XElement("phone", objEntityShipment.objShipTo.strPhoneNo)
                    ),
                    objEntityShipment == null ? new XElement("shipto", string.Empty) :
                                                new XElement("billto",
                                                    new XElement("name", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strContactname),
                                                    new XElement("company", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strCompanyName),
                                                    new XElement("addr1", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strAddressLine1),
                                                    new XElement("addr2", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strAddressLine2),
                                                    new XElement("addr3", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strAddressLine3),
                                                    new XElement("city", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strCity),
                                                    new XElement("state", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strState),
                                                    new XElement("zipcode", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strPostalCode),

                                                    new XElement("billnumber", objEntityShipment.objThirdParty.strAccountNumber)
                                                    )
);

objEntityShipment == null ? new XElement("billto", string.Empty) :
