The fitness instructor — who gave birth to her and the NBA player's son on December 1 — opened up to the outlet about what it has been like raising their little boy on her own amid the headline making paternity drama.
“My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment,” Nichols told the outlet along with sending the sweet snap. “Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son.”
The holiday update comes as the model recently broke her silence on her relationship with Thompson — who shares 3-year-old daughter True with ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.

As OK! previously reported, Nichols told Us Weekly, "I met Tristan in 2020 at a party at his home in Encino California. He told me he was single and coparenting."
The Texas native explained that the former Boston Celtics player told her that he was "not having a sexual relationship with anyone else," adding that their relationship was "not casual sex nor did we have any arrangement. Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month.
"Houston was one of many nights we spent together," Nichols recalled of their romantic rendezvous. "Soon after his birthday weekend in Houston, Tristan invited me to visit him in Boston."
As Thompson has continously questioned the paternity of the newborn, Nichols claimed that the athlete "has not helped me financially with my pregnancy or with our baby." She added, "I have paid 100 percent for my son's expenses. I did not ask Tristan for any money, nor did I accept any money that was offered to me."
