Maralee Nichols gave Instagram followers another glimpse of her one-year-old son Theo, whom she shares with Tristan Thompson, with a story photo this week. In the snapshot, which was posted on the basketball player’s 32nd birthday, she can be seen snuggling the adorable tot as they laid down together and she had her eyes closed. They both looked as comfortable as possible and the doting mom even had a smile on her face.
Maralee and Tristan welcomed Theo in Dec. 2021 but he didn’t admit that the baby boy was his until the next month. He apparently fathered the child when he was still in a relationship with his now ex Khloe Kardashian, and he took to social media to announce the news to the public. “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son,” he wrote. “I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
Maralee’s latest cute photo of Theo comes after Khloe, who is the mother of his two children, True, 4, and a seven-month-old son whose name has yet to be revealed, took to her own Instagram to share photos of him with their kids. His oldest son Prince Oliver, 6, whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig, was also included in the photos. The Good American founder included a touching caption alongside the post.
“Happy birthday @realtristan13 You are truly the best father, brother & uncle,” she wrote. “Your love, attention, silly dances, hugs, carpool rides, bed time rituals, the way u show up for them. All of the above means more than you’ll ever know to your family of littles.”
“My birthday wish for u is that u continue to crave change, healing, and transformation,” she continued. “Be strong, be kind, be patient, be free. Continue to Make your soul and your mommy proud. Happy birthday baby daddy.”
