Tristan Thompson’s baby mama Maralee Nichols posted a snapshot of her son Theo dressed up as Santa for Christmas as they celebrated Christmas as a family of two.
“Spotted Santa Claus,” the 31-year-old model captioned the post as the toddler crawled on the floor and got into a toy Bentley Chiron.
Just earlier this month, Nichols celebrated their son’s first birthday with a “Winter ONEderland” themed party.
“I can not believe you are already one. Spending the past 365 days with you have been the best days of my life. You are the sweetest little boy, your smile brightens up any room,” she had written on Instagram.
Currently, Maralee Nichols has sole custody of their son as Thompson has chosen not to meet his child. Although Maralee Nichols has claimed that the NBA star had “done nothing” for the first year of Theo’s life, he has recently agreed to pay Nichols $10,000 per month in child support after settling their paternity suit.
The model welcomed Theo in December 2021 after a scandalous pregnancy. She had sued Thompson for publicly denying fathering Theo which was later proved by a paternity test.
As he was still in a relationship with Keeping up with the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian, he tried to pay the model $75,000 to keep quiet about the pregnancy as well as their one-night stand. Also, he was expecting another child with Kardashian via a surrogate during this time.
However, once the whole scandal was revealed, he publicly apologized to his partner Khole Kardashian saying she didn’t “deserve the heartache and humiliation” he caused her.
Eight months after the cheating scandal, Thompson and Kardashian welcomed their son. They also share a 4-year-old daughter True, who was born just days after Thompson was caught kissing another woman.
