Tristan Thompson's alleged third child has been graced with his last name, it was reported.
While Thompson's paternity dispute continues, the athlete's alleged third baby mama Maralee Nichols gave birth to a baby boy on Friday, December 3 — and gave the newborn Khloé Kardashian's ex man's last name.
The personal trainer posted a snap of her little cutie after giving birth, captioning the photo: "First came love, then came you ❤️ Angelou Kash Thompson."
The new mama went on to hint that the NBA player isn't acknowledging his third child with his third baby mama, as Nichols wrote on her Instagram Story: "I want to thank everyone for your well wishes. Me and baby are doing great. Right now my heart and mind is on focusing on the baby right now. I am heartbroken that Angelou’s father doesn’t want to be in his life. I am hoping this lawsuit will bring us together and we can be a family."
It should be noted that the 31-year-old seemed to point out her and Thompson's fling was more than a one night stand, given that she wrote: "First came love."
As OK! reported, Nichols and Thompson allegedly hooked up in March while celebrating the apparent new father's 30th birthday. While the personal trainer's attorney insisted their fling began five months before his birthday festivities earlier this year, Thompson maintained their one night together in a hotel was the only time the two had been intimate.
Nevertheless, the father of 4-year-old son Prince — whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig — and 3-year-old daughter True, whom he shares with his on-again, off-again ex Kardashian, confirmed the former flames had spent a night together at that time while he was still with the KUWTK star.
Nichols filed a lawsuit in June, with her demanding child support, reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs. She also requested that the athlete foot the bill for their alleged baby's costs.
In Nichols' lawsuit, she alleged Thompson offered her $75,000 to stay mum about having his apparent child, with her also sharing "threatening" messages the basketball player sent her regarding their unborn baby at the time.
“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Won’t be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong," the messages that Nichols requested be used in her child support case read.
“You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed," the texts continued. "It’s Texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.”
While Nichols filed her case in California, Thompson, who demanded a paternity test be done, requested in his own filings that it be moved to Texas — where his alleged baby mama used to live, and where they apparently conceived their newborn child — to potentially minimize the amount of child support the womanizer would have to cough up.
