MARALEE Nichols shadowed her baby daddy Tristan Thompson on Father’s Day as the NBA star has still not met their son.
The fitness trainer used her Instagram stories on Sunday to commemorate the special day.
However, Maralee, 32, didn’t mention Tristan, 32, in her post and instead shared a snap of her childhood with her father.
In the flashback picture, a young Maralee smiled in her father’s arms while clutching a doll.
She didn’t include a caption with the post.
Maralee has a year-old son, Theo, with Tristan, who reportedly refused to meet the toddler.
She and Tristan conceived their son during their affair, when the NBA star cheated on then-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian, 38.
The Kardashians star — and the rest of the world — found out about the affair just before Theo’s birth in December 2021.
Tristan and Khloe were only parents to their now five-year-old daughter True at the time, but have since given birth to a ten-month-old son, Tatum, via surrogate.
It was recently reported that Tatum didn’t initially go by Tristan’s last name, but Khloe changed her mind and eventually changed it.
As for his young son with Maralee, Tristan has kept insisting that he doesn’t want to interfere in his life.
According to legal documents dated August 2022, NBA star Maralee offered to pay $75,000 in hush money in lieu of paying monthly child support.
The Los Angeles Lakers player reportedly told Theo’s mother that she would be “better off” with the $75,000 because she wouldn’t be getting much child support.
When the exes finally settled their paternity case, Tristan was ordered to pay about $9,500 a month in child support.
Tristan reportedly told the Instagram model that he has no interest in spending time with Theo and has no intention of meeting their son together.
Maralee has regularly shared glimpses of her son on social media, although she has yet to reveal his face.
Earlier this week, she posted a story about the duo in a park watching a large fountain.
In the clip, the little one was heard chattering before his mum showed him sitting in his stroller.
At some point you could hear the youngster calling for his “mommy”.
Maralee also showed him in another video how he played on a wooden construction for children.
The mother-son couple have been enjoying plenty of summertime activities so far as she recently shared snaps of them swimming in the pool.
Theo protected his head from the sun with a blue sailor cap and wore a flotation device around his waist.
In a later story, Maralee held her son as he kicked his legs in the water.
She also shared a short clip of Theo’s swimming lesson.
The fitness guru captioned the post with a white heart emoji: “Can’t believe my baby is one and a half.”
In addition to his children with Maralee and Khloe, Tristan is also father to a six-year-old son, Prince, with his ex Jordan Craig.
