Tristan Always Knew About Maralee Nichols’ Baby

Khloé Kardashian said Tristan Thompson was “always aware” of Maralee Nichols’ baby, but still pushed her for another one.

In the season 2 premiere episode of “The Kardashians,” released Thursday on Hulu, the Good American co-founder revealed her and Thompson’s surrogate was implanted with an embryo “days before Thanksgiving” 2021.

“I heard about Tristan’s situation [with Nichols] the first week of December,” she said in a confessional. “It’s just so close. I wouldn’t want anyone to think afterwards that I did this. Why would I want to have a baby with someone who is having a baby with someone else? I’m not much of a sociopath. I’m crazy, but not that f–king madman.”

Kardashian, 38, also confirmed that the NBA player, 31, learned of Nichols’ pregnancy on July 2 — months before he “encouraged” the reality star to continue with the surrogacy.

“All I know is that I was encouraged to do it on a certain date,” she explained.

“In retrospect, he always knew when the other baby was born, especially the paperwork we saw.”

Thompson vehemently denied being the father of her child and even… seemed to threaten her about child support, but a DNA test taken after their son, Theo, was born on December 1, proved that he was, in fact, the baby boy’s father. Thompson apologized back on, off again exwith whom he also shares 4-year-old daughter True, in January, but she refused to take him back.

The plot thickened earlier this summer when Page Six confirmed the former was “Kocktails with Khloé” host expecting another child with Thompson – despite their split. The former couple’s surrogate would go further gave birth to a boy on July 28th. His name remains unknown, but Kardashian hinted that it begins with a “T”.
