Tristan Thompson is officially a father of three. According to the NBA player, paternity results have confirmed that he is indeed the father of Maralee Nichols' son.
On Monday (Jan. 3), Thompson shared the following message on his Instagram Story: "Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son."
He went on to add, "I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."
Thompson previously denied fathering the child that was born on December 1. According to People Magazine, Nichols says that the child was conceived amid the timeframe when he was dating his ex, Khloé Kardashian.
He also apologized to Khloé, who is the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson. "Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you," he wrote. "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. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry."
Khloé has yet to respond to the public apology.
Nichols' paternity suit against Thompson, for pregnancy-related fees and child support, is still pending.
