TRISTAN Thompson’s two youngest children have experienced two distinctly different levels of fame.
While former flame Khloe Kardashian has been extremely private in all things concerning her second child with Tristan, the woman he cheated on her with, Maralee Nichols, has been more public with their love child, Theo.

Tristan claims to have only been intimate with Maralee on one occasion – in March of 2021, which was his 30th birthday, in Houston, Texas.
Maralee countered his statement by disclosing that they allegedly began their affair up to five months prior to his Houston birthday party.
Neither party has denied the paternity of baby Theo, who was born in December 2021.
But while Tristan confirms he’s the daddy, he’s been notably absent from the one-year-old’s life, and has “no immediate plans” to meet his son.
The source shared: “Tristan is very absent from Theo’s life. He hasn’t met Theo nor has he initiated any meetings.
“He doesn’t have any immediate plans to meet his son face to face.”
Fans have had that opportunity, however, as Maralee has shared several glimpses of young Theo’s face.

Several videos showed Theo dancing on a boat while floating through the It’s A Small World ride.
In one video, Theo jumped up and down and screamed: “yay!” as he swayed to the famous song.
Another photo showed Maralee holding her son on the Dumbo ride with the caption: “My best friend for life.”
SEEING THE SEALIFE

The model also recently shared photos and videos on her Instagram of a separate trip to an aquarium with the one-year-old.
One clip showed the pair kneeling in front of a glass fish tank while different species of marine animals swam past.
A second recording included in the post captured Theo waving at a penguin as it floated on the water’s surface.
The latter half of the video showed Maralee and Theo standing outside near another of the aquarium’s exhibits.
A series of photos of the fitness model and her son accompanied the videos.
One snapshot featured Maralee helping Theo to stand as they both looked into a gigantic fish tank while the other showed the tiny tot leaning against the glass tank as he attempted to see into its depths.
GRIN AND BEAR IT

Late last year, Maralee shared some cute snaps and a video of Theo dressed as a snuggly, warm bear on an outing.
She pushed the little one in his stroller while he was dressed in a furry white babygrow with bear ears on the hood.
The Texas native then posted a snap of her sitting on a park swing with Theo on her lap.

The mom-of-one was dressed in blue jeans, a white overcoat and matching white boots for the post-Christmas stroll.
She shared another photo of Theo clutching onto his mom as they sat on the swing.
“Getting so big,” she wrote in the text.

In December, Maralee celebrated Theo’s first birthday with a lavish bash.
In one photo, Maralee posed with the birthday boy in front of a massive blue, white, and silver balloon display and a huge baby blue sign decorated with white snowflakes.
On the sign were the words “Theo’s Winter ONEderland” in cursive writing – a play of words to honor Theo turning one.
With her son in her arms, Maralee stood in the center donning a white long-sleeved dress, knee-high silver boots, and her long brunette locks flowing down.
Theo appeared to sport white shorts and a blue jacket with his eyes glued on the display behind them.
The photo also showed two clear cases on either side of them – one holding a stand filled with sweet treats decorated with baby blue icing.
The other case held a two-tier cake decorated similarly to their backdrop with a trail of balloons down the side, keeping with the color scheme.
Maralee gave a closer look at the dessert in the following clip, showing three adorable white bears on the cake, including one that held the number 1 at the top.
The baby blue cake also had Theo’s name spelled out in silver lettering in the center.

The gallery started with Maralee and Theo in front of a pumpkin wall, and the next photo was of her little one in a wagon with pumpkins.

The final snaps was of their mother and son’s Halloween costumes- they were dressed as little red riding hood and the big bad wolf.
Maralee captioned the post: “October with my pumpkin” with an orange heart.
News that Tristan fathered a child with Maralee broke just before she gave birth to their son.
The NBA star was supposedly in an exclusive relationship with Khloe at the time, and the pair were preparing to welcome their second child via surrogate.
