Tristan Thompson is every inch the proud father as he shows off his son Prince’s basketball skills… after welcoming second child with Khloe Kardashian via surrogate
Tristan Thompson showed off his son Prince’s fledgling basketball skills in a sweet video posted to his Instagram Stories on Saturday.
The 31-year-old NBA player shared video of his five-year-old dribbling a ball on a basketball court in addition to a photo of the youngster proudly posing in his Chicago Bulls uniform.
The athlete’s video and snap were shared just weeks after he welcomed a second son via surrogate with Khloe Kardashian.

Thompson also added a short text graphic to his clip that read: ‘Starting them early.’
The athlete shares Prince with his former partner Jordan Craig, and the pair welcomed their son into their lives in 2016.
The post comes a week after Khloe, who split from Tristan again in January, welcomed their second child together – a baby boy – via surrogate.
‘Khloé is on cloud nine. Getting a sibling for True has been such a journey,’ a source close to the situation revealed to People. ‘She is very excited to be a mom again. She really wanted a baby boy.’

That insider went on to share that the Good American co-founder isn’t in a rush to decide on a name for her new baby.
‘Khloé hasn’t shared a name yet. She is taking her time with the name,’ the source continued, adding, ‘She wants it to be just right.’
The news broke that the on-again, off-again couple were expecting another child together on July 13, about seven months after their last breakup.

They are already parents to four-year-old daughter True.
‘We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,’ a representative previously told People. ‘Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.’
The exes have had a rollercoaster relationship since they first started dating back in 2016.
In September 2017, rumors began circulating that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was pregnant with her first child. The NBA player, who was with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the time, was already a dad to son Prince, whose mother, Jordan, was pregnant when he started dating the reality star.

Right before Kardashian gave birth to True in April 2018, it was revealed that Thompson had cheated on her on numerous occasions, but somehow they managed to stay together.
They eventually split in February 2019 when word got out that he had cheated with Kylie Jenner’s former best friend, Jordyn Woods.
Yet they found their way back to each other the following year, due in part to spending plenty of time together during COVID-19 quarantine.
They split again in June 2021 before reuniting, but their five-year on-off relationship ended once again after DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in December 2021 that the NBA star had fathered a child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols while he was still involved with Khloe.
