Tristan Thompson, 29, shared the cutest birthday post for his son Prince on Dec. 12 and we can’t stop swooning over it! The basketball player, who just joined the Boston Celtics, posted a series of Instagram photos of his mini-me, who turned four-years-old, along with a loving caption. One of the photos shows the funny dad posing with his mouth open as the birthday boy, whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig, is looking up at him and holding what appears to be a white chess piece to his mouth, and another shows them in the same setting as they just happily look at the camera.
“Happy birthday Princey!!! I’m soo lucky to have you as a son papa. Your heart and soul is pure gold. Your sister is soo lucky to have a big brother like you to watch and protect her. Daddy Loves you baby boy ❤️🙏🏾💪🏾🤘🏾❤️,” Tristan’s caption read, referencing his daughter True, 2, whom he shares with Khloe Kardashian, 36.
The dad-of-two’s friends and fans were quick to share positive responses in the comments section of the post once it was published. Khloe was one of the first and she left a bunch of red heart emojis while Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend, Corey Gamble, wrote, “Yung TT ✊🏾.”
“He is sooooo handsome 😘,” one fan wrote. “Reallllll twinsss bro. ❤️,” another gushed. Others sent Prince special birthday wishes while another called the father, son, and daughter “triplets”. “Your genes are strong!” one fan pointed out.
Although Tristan tends to be private about his personal life and doesn’t post about his kids too often, like this year, he celebrated Prince’s birthday last year with a precious post, which can be seen above. The tot was holding a red balloon while standing and smiling in the pic and the doting father wrote a sentimental message.
“Happy birthday to my baby boy Prince. You’re already 3, I remember holding you when you were born and telling you how amazing of a baby you are,” the message read. “Everyday you continue to surprise me with your development, your love and your big heart. Your smile is one that lights up every room you are in. I thank God everyday for picking me to be your father. May God continue to bless you each and everyday son. I love you❤️❤️❤️❤️”
