The Name Of Tristan Thompson's Son With Maralee Nichols Has Finally Been Revealed

Tristan Thompson's relationship with Maralee Nichols has been a roller coaster ride thus far. 

The NBA player — who previously dated Khloé Kardashian and is the father of her 3-year-old daughter, True — was hit with a paternity suit from Nichols in late 2021. When it was eventually confirmed that Thomson fathered Nichols' son, the athlete took to social media to share a statement about the situation, per People.

"Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols," he wrote on Jan. 3, 2022. "I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."

Thompson also apologized via a heartbreaking message to Kardashian, whom he was dating when the child was conceived.

"Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you," Thompson wrote. "My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry."

Now, months after the baby's birth, new details about Thompson's latest family addition are being revealed.

Maralee Nichols shares the name of her son with Tristan Thompson

Nearly three months after Maralee Nichols gave birth to her son with Tristan Thompson, on Dec. 1, 2021, the model is revealing the baby's name: Theo Thompson (via E! News). 

"Theo, my little angel baby. I named you Theo because it means, 'Gift from God,'" Nichols captioned a photo of her holding the boy on Instagram

She went on to detail how she had never been pregnant before and was told that it might not be medically possible.

"I couldn't believe I was pregnant, when I saw you on the ultrasound and your little heartbeat I knew I would always protect you and keep you safe," she wrote. "I love you more than you'll ever know. You bring such joy and happiness into my life. My greatest blessing."

A copy of little Theo's birth certificate also reveals that Tristan is not listed as his father. Nichols revealed that Thompson's name wasn't put on the birth certificate "because he was not present at Theo's birth."

Nichols claims that the NBA player has not been present in the little boy's life thus far, even though he had earlier pledged to "amicably raise [their] son" via a public statement.

"Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support their son," Nichols' rep previously said in a statement. "He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance."

Meanwhile, Thompson is staying quiet about the whole situation.
