However, Tristan did not ‘like’ or comment on Maralee’s post and made no mention of the occasion on his own Instagram page.

In February, Nichols’ representative confirmed that the 31-year-old professional basketball player has ‘not’ paid her a dime in child support since Theo’s birth on December 1.

‘Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support their son. He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance,’ her rep told Entertainment Tonight.

Over the past six months, Maralee has shared glimpses at her newborn son on her Instagram page.

Back in February, she called him her ‘little angel baby’ and explained that the name Theo means ‘Gift from God.’ 

Though she did not appear to receive any Mother’s Day surprises from Thompson, the athlete did send a bouquet of flowers to his other baby mama Khloe Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner.

The 66-year-old Kardashian-Jenner matriarch shared a snap of the arrangement of pink and white roses to her Instagram Story on Sunday. It’s unclear if Khloe received anything from her ex-partner.

Nichols welcomed her and Thompson’s love child in December, soon after DailyMail.com had revealed details of the paternity suit she filed against the NBA player.

The obtained court documents first revealed that Nichols was suing Thompson for child support as well as for reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs.

However, she subsequently told E! News: ‘I did not file any request for child support before our child was born.’

Additionally Nichols filed to submit text messages exchanged between herself and Thompson as evidence for her paternity lawsuit.

It’s claimed the texts show the pro athlete had wanted her to terminate the pregnancy, stated he had no plans to be involved in the child’s life and had tried to offer her hush money.

Thompson had filed a gag order request back in December saying Nichols’ ‘intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit’ by accusing him of fathering a third child, according to Us Weekly.

But weeks later, the NBA star took to Instagram on January 3 to confirm that he was in fact that father of Nichols’ child.  

‘Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions,’ he began.

‘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.’

He then spoke directly to ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian, who he was romantically involved with at the time he’d conceived the child with Nichols in March 2021.

Nichols previously claimed the child had been conceived while celebrating the NBA pro’s birthday in Houston, Texas. It was revealed in January that Thompson had declared his love for Khloe on Instagram on March 13, 2021 just hours before meeting up with Nichols.

Thompson and Kardashian, 37, have dated on/off since 2016 and share four-year-old daughter True.

His Instagram apology read: ‘Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years.

‘My actions have certainly 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,’ Thompson concluded.

The admission posted to Instagram marked the first time the Chicago Bulls player had publicly acknowledged being a father of three.

He also shares son Prince Thompson, five, with model Jordan Craig, 30. 

Thompson has had a documented history of being a serial cheater amid his relationship with Kardashian as his first cheating scandal went public in 2018.

In 2018, Dailymail.com revealed Thompson had cheated on the then-pregnant Kardashian with a strip club worker from New York City named Lani Blair.

They welcomed daughter True on April 14, 2018.

'Khloe you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation' he said in a groveling apology to the 37-year-old star; the former couple seen in 2019

At the time, other outlets reported additional women; however despite the cheating scandal, Kardashian remained with Thompson until she when she split with the athlete in February 2019.

In February 2019, Thompson kissed Jordyn Woods after a house party, which was his second cheating scandal.

It is interesting to note that Jordyn was primarily blamed by the Kardashian family publicly on social media and on KUWTK, with Thompson and his behavior seemingly overlooked.

She was 21 at the time while Thompson was 27 and Kardashian was 34.

Despite the turmoil, Thompson and Kardashian rekindled their romance during the COVID-19 pandemic as they went into lockdown together in March 2020 with daughter True.

It was reported in June 2021 that Kardashian and Thompson broke up for the second time.

That same month, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed how Thompson disappeared into a bedroom with three women at a house party in Bel Air over the weekend. Lawyers for Thompson denied the claims.

Kardashian has touched on Thompson’s paternity scandal in her family’s new Hulu series The Kardashians, which premiered in April. 

She’d confirmed that the topic would be ‘addressed on the show,’ while speaking to Variety ahead of the series’ premiere.

‘That was hard,’ Kardashian admitted.

Due to years of reported infidelity, most shockingly when she was pregnant with their daughter True in 2018, the Good American founder said learning her ex fathered a child with someone else during their relationship felt like ‘déjà vu.’

‘I think the first time it was either Kendall or Kylie that called me. Now it’s good old Kim,’ she recalled. ‘You do become numb’ to the pain, but said that it didn’t make things any easier.’

‘When you’re hurt so many times — your reactions, your responses to the same thing happening over and over again — there is a numbing sensation to it,’ the mother-of-one confessed.
