It’s been two months since Maralee Nichols gave birth to Tristan Thompson’s third child. Now, the baby boy’s name has finally been revealed.
Two months after Maralee Nichols gave birth to Tristan Thompson’s third child, the baby boy’s name has finally been revealed. The NBA pro shares a 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson, with The Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian. He also has an older son, Prince, from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig.
The news that Tristan was expecting a baby with another woman caused a scandal. Especially since he was on-again with Khloe at the time. Tristan met Maralee, and conceived their child, while celebrating his birthday in March. At first, the athlete denied that the baby was his. However, a paternity test soon revealed the truth. After the proof came out, the 30-year-old admitted he was seeing Maralee behind Khloe’s back for months. He also released an apology to Khloe on social media. But while this all played out in the public eye, very little was known about the child, not even his name… until now.
According to E! News, the baby boy’s birth certificate revealed Theo Thompson was born to Maralee Nichols on December 1, 2021. Two weeks after their son was born, Tristan’s lawsuit against Maralee was dismissed. Despite the child having his last name, Tristan was not listed as the father on the birth certificate. Once the name was discovered, Maralee released a statement to E! News. Calling Theo her “little angel baby,” Maralee explained that she chose the moniker because it meant “gift from God.” The personal trainer revealed that in the past, she had been told she might not be able to have a child. Once she discovered she was pregnant, she said of her little boy, “when I saw you on the ultrasound and your little heartbeat I knew I would always protect you and keep you safe. I love you more than you’ll ever know. You bring such joy and happiness into my life. My greatest blessing.”
After accepting the baby boy’s paternity, Tristan released a statement vowing to be there for his youngest child. However, according to Maralee, he has not kept that promise. Last week, her representatives revealed that Tristan has yet to meet his son, and has failed to provide the child’s mother with any financial assistance.
While Maralee has been blessed with her gift from god, the scandal may have ended Tristan and Khloe’s romance. This was far from the first time the basketball player publicly betrayed the reality star, even when she was pregnant with True. Most infamously, he made a move on Jordyn Woods. The Kar-Jenner’s controversially responded to that incident by cutting ties with Jordyn, who was once Kylie Jenner’s BFF.
Before the news came out that he fathered a third child, Khloe and Tristan reportedly considered having another baby of their own. Now, Khloe is said to be “detoxifying” from Tristan. Fans will have to wait and see if the subject of Theo’s paternity, and the scandal surrounding it, comes up on The Kardashians. The famous family’s new Hulu show is set to premiere on April 19.
