Maralee Nichols, the mother of Tristan Thompson’s illegitimate child, has shared an unseen picture from before the cheating scandal broke. The 31-year-old recently took to Instagram to share a photo of her working out last year. At the time, she was pregnant with her and Tristan’s son Theo.
Tristan, 31, had been in a relationship with 38-year-old Khloe Kardashian when he slept with Maralee. Khloe found out about his affair in the final episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as sister Kim Kardashian broke the news.
Posting on her Instagram Stories, Maralee shared a throwback snap of herself lying down on the gym floor. She captioned the post: “1 year ago… I was at least 4 months preggo here.”

In the picture, the fitness model can be seen wearing a white sports bra and grey leggings, with her long hair pulled back into a ponytail. Maralee gave birth to Theo in December 2021. He is Tristan’s third child.
Khloe had previously reconciled with the basketball player after past cheating scandals, but learnt of a paternity lawsuit filed by Maralee in the latest instalment of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Tristan later confessed to having sex with his former mistress on his 30th birthday.

Speaking on the Disney+ show, Kim said: “He’s been lying to you. Did you know about this?” Khloe said she did not as she read the paternity lawsuit. She added: “I find out what Tristan is doing with the rest of the world.
“A courtesy would be not doing it, but if you do it you’re not even going to give me a heads up before the rest of the world? It’s just an additional slap in my face. It’s humiliating. I’m embarrassed. “Tristan is also the father of Prince, five, who he shares with ex Jordan Craig and True, four, who he had with Khloe.
According to Us Weekly, the Chicago Bulls player had made “no immediate plans” to meet his six-month-old son. A source close to Tristan said: “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.”
The insider also claimed Tristan “hasn’t been in communication with Maralee and hasn’t sent her any money for child support to date.” The source concluded: “This aspect hasn’t legally been resolved yet.”
