I’m feeling good! Maralee Nichols showed off her post-baby physique only days after Tristan Thompson acknowledged he is her son’s father.
On Friday, January 7, the fitness model flaunted her toned abs and slim physique via her Instagram Story. Nichols appeared in front of a gym mirror in a white sports bra with cutouts.
One month after giving birth to her first kid, she posted a gorgeous exercise photo.
Us Weekly exclusively verified last month that she gave birth to a son on December 1. After claiming Thompson, 30, fathered the kid in March 2021.
Nichols started a federal lawsuit against the Basketball player in June 2021. But it wasn’t until Monday, January 3, that the former Cleveland player admitted that he is the father.
“Today, DNA tests show that I fathered a baby with Maralee Nichols. I accept complete responsibilities seriously.” the Sacramento Kings athlete said at the moment on Instagram Stories. “Now that paternity has been proven, I look forward to raising our son peacefully.”
Nichols previously made headlines in December 2021 after filing a child support case against Thompson. The Canadian native filed his own suit in Texas shortly after the former personal trainer filed hers in Los Angeles in June 2021.
On December 17, the California resident broke her silence on the incident. Writing a statement to Us detailing her connection with Thompson. Nichols said she met the professional athlete in 2020. She also said that their months-long affair included getting together for holidays and birthdays.
Maralee says that she didn’t know about Tristan dating Khloe Kardashian
She stated that she had no idea Thompson was dating Khloé Kardashian, with whom he has 3-year-old daughter True. Us Weekly announced in June 2021 that the basketball player and Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, 37, had split for the second time after reuniting in August 2020.
Nichols stated that her connection with Thompson was “not casual sex, nor did we have any agreement.” Tristan and I interacted on a regular basis and spoke on the phone. We’d see each other a few times a month.” She further claimed that after telling him about her pregnancy in April 2021, she “paid 100% of my son’s bills.” I didn’t ask Tristan for money, and I didn’t take any money that was offered to me.”
Thompson, who is also the father of Nichols’ 5-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig, issued a second statement after confirming the paternity of Nichols’ kid.
“There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols’ child,” Nichols’ public relations consultant Harvey Englander told Us on Tuesday, January 4. “Over the last few months, Tristan made countless false and defamatory claims and pronouncements against Maralee, and she is taking his apologetic speech today in the context of all of those statements.”
