Basketball star and reality show fixture Tristan Thompson has been a parental fixture to his son, Prince, since his birth in December 2016. Despite having split from the boy’s mother, Jordan Craig, Thompson has maintained a close relationship, even in the face of his tumultuous relationship with current partner, Khloe Kardashian.
Kardashian, who was expecting the couple’s daughter, True, in April 2018, was reportedly unfaithful at the time. Yet, over the course of the relationship, the couple made an effort to co-parent, and in February 2021, Thompson expressed his excitement at welcoming another child with Kardashian.
While Thompson is dedicated to his children, showing his paternal side through affectionately sharing shots of son Prince, parenting has not come without its challenges. The public scrutiny, backlash, and negative comments directed at both women has tested the co-parenting relationship.
Nonetheless, Thompson’s commitment to raising his children remains strong, as evidenced by his determination to remain present in his childrens’ lives and shared commitment to giving True a sibling. Despite the obstacles, his ability to be a loving father to his kids is clear.
