Maralee Nichols not ‘surprised’ by Khloé, Tristan baby news

Maralee Nichols isn’t “surprised” that Tristan Thompson is expecting another child with ex Khloé Kardashian, according to a new report.

“She’s really focused on raising Theo,” a source told Us Weekly Friday, adding that the 31-year-old fitness trainer is “navigating motherhood like a single mom.”

Thompson, 31, slept with Nichols on his 30th birthday weekend in March 2021 while still in a romantic relationship with Kardashian, 38.

He admitted in January that he fathered Nichols’ son, Theo, after a bitter paternity suit.

While the NBA player at the time claimed he would “raise his child amicably” with Nichols, the model said in February that he has yet to meet Theo or offer “some financial help.”

The couple only met once, but communicated regularly via Snapchat. And yet their one-night stand was apparently enough for Thompson to tell Nichols that he “wanted five to six kids,” the source told Us Weekly.

Now the alleged wish of the athlete is getting closer.

The news broke on Wednesday that he and the “Kardashians” star are expecting their second child together, a baby boy, via a surrogate mother.

“Khloé has always wanted to have a little brother for True and decided to continue having the baby with the support of her family,” a Kardashian representative told Vidak For Congress. “We can confirm that True will have a sibling conceived in November.”

The former couple had decided to expand their family just a month before the paternity scandal broke. Kardashian broke up with Thompson after finding out he cheated on her during their surrogacy.

Although the couple shares 4-year-old daughter True, they have had no contact outside of co-parenting since December 2021.

The expectant father of four also has a 5-year-old son, Prince, who he shares with ex Jordan Craig.

We were told that the baby is not yet born, but is due any day.
