“My baby is walking everywhere now 🥺 ,” Nichols, 31, wrote via Instagram Story on Thursday, February 2, sharing footage of her son , 13 months, toddling around a child-friendly gym.
The fitness influencer gave birth to Theo — whom she shares with Tristan Thompson — in December 2021 amid a messy court battle regarding the now-toddler’s paternity. Us Weekly confirmed earlier that month that Nichols was suing the Chicago Bulls athlete, 31, for child support after claiming that he fathered her then-unborn child.
Thompson — who was dating ex Khloé Kardashian at the time he first met Nichols — initially denied her claims that Theo was his son. The Canada native eventually confirmed the little one’s paternity in January 2022.
“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols . I take full responsibility for my actions,” Thompson — who also shares son Prince , 5, with ex Jordan Craig and two children with Kardashian, 38 — wrote via Instagram Story at the time. “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.”
The professional basketball player a dded an apology message to the Good American cofounder , with whom he shares daughter True , 4, and a son , born in July 2022. “Khloé, 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,” Thompson concluded his social media note. “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.”
“I love caring for my son daily and tending to his needs,” Nichols exclusively told Us in February 2022 . “It is so rewarding. I never knew I could love someone so much. He brings such joy into my life and is my greatest blessing.”
She added at the time: “I will do everything in my power to make sure he is provided for. I will be the best mommy I can be. I love playing with him and making him laugh. He has the cutest smile and is always so happy. I also love reading to him and rocking him to sleep. He is so cuddly.”
