Tristan Thompson is celebrating his 32nd birthday today, and there’s one Kar-Jenner family member who can’t stop gushing over him.
If you’re thinking it’s Khloe Kardashian, think again.
The NBA player received an outpouring of social media love from his (almost) mother-in-law, Kris Jenner.
Kris Jenner Issues Overly-Gushy Happy Birthday Story To Tristan
The matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner family couldn’t help herself in a series of Instagram Stories.
“Happy Birthday, Tristan! I know this year has been hard so far. But you seem to find the positive and the light amongst the sadness,” her first IG Story read.
She shared several throwback photos of Tristan with his and Khloe’s daughter, True Thompson.
“You look at the glass half full and it has been so great watching you grow as a dad, a friend, a brother, an uncle and a son,” Jenner continued. “You have used these challenges as opportunities to better yourself day by day.”
Kris Jenner Is Looking Past Tristan’s Infidelity
As you may recall, Thompson was incredibly adulterous while dating Khloe and was caught cheating on her multiple times.
But despite treating her like garbage, the momager extraordinaire appears to have forgotten or looked past it.
“And I know how proud your mom is of the man you have become. ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for that, and for being such a special part of our family,” Jenner added.
She concluded the overly loving “Tristan Thompson anthology” with, “We love you very much.”
Kris Admits She Loves Tristan Very Much!
Kris tagged Khloe in every single slide related to TT’s birthday, but didn’t share any photos of KK and TT together.
The couple is broken up, but they continue to co-parent their two children together.
We recently reported that the basketball player is working to better himself for his ex-baby momma.
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 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.
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.
On his 30th birthday, TT had a one-night stand with Maralee Nichols and ended up getting her pregnant.
He has been an absent father to his third child and second son, Theo, since his birth in December 2021.
An explosive paternity scandal broke in November of that year, and the reality TV star immediately broke up with the NBA player.
Tristan originally denied fathering Nichols’ baby, but a paternity test proved him very wrong.
He proceeded to issue a lengthy apology to his friends, family, fans and Khloe.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” Tristan wrote. “Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal, both publicly and privately.”
“Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he said. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.”
He added, “I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think.”
