Fans had previously been under the impression the tot was named Angelou Kash Thompson. According to TMZ, an Instagram account that previously announced the baby was named Angelou was fake.

Nichols posted a photo on Instagram on Wednesday, February 23, of herself holding the baby. The mother and son donned matching white outfits in the photo as Nichols hid her baby's face from the camera.

According to People, the Sacramento Kings player is not listed on his new son's birth certificate. The fitness model told the publication it was because he was not present when she gave birth. Nichols welcomed the baby on Wednesday, December 1, in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 30-year-old initially questioned the paternity of the baby after news of his alleged third child made headlines in December. He confirmed last month he was in fact the child's father in a public statement, where he maintained he was looking forward to amicably raising his son with Nichols.

Earlier this month, Nichols' rep claimed Thompson has done nothing to support their son nor has he made any attempt to meet him.

The NBA player also publicly apologized to Khloé Kardashian and said she does not deserve what he has put her through. Thompson and Nichols hooked up in March 2021 during his birthday celebrations. He was believed to have still been dating the Good American cofounder at the time.

Though the KUWTK reality star has not yet publicly commented on her baby daddy's most recent scandal, she hasn't shied away from throwing shade at her ex.
