Maralee Nichols is doing mighty fine as a single mother.
The social media influencer welcomed her son, Theo, in December 2021 after getting pregnant by Tristan Thompson in March 2021.
The couple had a one-night stand after his 30th birthday while he was still in a committed relationship with Khloe Kardashian. Thompson and KK share a daughter, True, and a son.

An explosive paternity scandal broke in November of that year, and the reality TV star immediately broke up with the NBA player.
Since she welcomed Theo, Thompson has been absolutely neglectful of his son.
Nichols is proving that she and Theo are better off without the basketball star.
Taking to her Instagram Story, the fitness influencer shared videos and photos of her baby boy at the Aquarium.

In the video, the one-year-old is looking at a big fish tank and saying, “WOOOW” and “COOOL.”
Nichols revealed these are his favorite words at the moment.
She shared another video of her holding Theo and him grabbing her face. She paired the video to the song, “So This Is Love.”
This social media activity comes after reports surfaced of Thompson wanting to better himself following the death of his mother.
According to an Entertainment Tonight report, the NBA star is wanting to repent for his cheating sins and become a better person.
Khloe has been by his side since his mother, Andrea, suddenly passed away in January. She’s been his “support system” during this difficult time.
Thompson’s younger brother, Amari Thompson, suffers from epilepsy, and Khloe promised Andrea that she’d care for her youngest child.
Tristan Is Trying To Be A Better Man
A source revealed to ET, “Khloe has been very cognizant of making sure Tristan and his brothers don’t feel alone.”
“Tristan wants to show the world, Khloe, and his mom — his guardian angel — the man and father that he can be, even more so now,” the source added.
We previously reported that Thompson got trolled online for posting photos of his kids Prince and True, but neglecting to post about Theo.
When Tristan shared the photos with his first-born, his fans immediately ripped into him.
“A Young King in the making, My Prince 👑,” the caption reads.

“Don’t forget the baby you tried to lie about…” one person commented.
“Wonder how ur other child will feel when he’s looks back at how much you adored the others and rejected him,” another wrote.
One asked, “Where the other baby?”
“Hopefully you teach him to treat women with respect unlike you,” this person savagely responded.
Tristan really seems to be on his “dad s**t,” because just a few days ago, he shared several photos with his four-year-old, True.

Once again, his comments section was inundated with negative thoughts about his parenting style.
“If only you were a father to all your children not just the ‘selected’ ones,” one comment read.
“The only child he takes care of,” another replied.
“If Khloe wasn’t a celebrity and didn’t have her own money, he wouldn’t have anything to do with True either,” a rather harsh comment read.
“Sad all your kids can’t get this love,” yet another person wrote.
