What Was Maralee Nichols' Reaction To Tristan Thompson's Baby News?

Maralee Nichols, fitness trainer and the mother of Tristan Thompson's son Theo, has apparently shared her opinion on the news that Thompson's having another child with ex Khloé Kardashian.

In case you missed it, the Good American co-founder is having a second baby with the Chicago Bulls player, but this time, it's via surrogate. "We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November," a representative for "The Kardashians" star told E! News. "Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family."

While Kardashian has always been open about her desire to give her daughter True a sibling, many were surprised that she still wanted Thompson to be the father. But, as it turns out, the baby had already been conceived before Thompson's paternity scandal with Nichols became public. And now, the Houston native has shared her thoughts about the baby news.

Maralee Nichols was not 'surprised' by Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's baby news

Maralee Nichols offered a non-reaction upon finding out that Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are having another child. An insider told Us Weekly that the trainer was not "surprised" that Thompson had fathered another child and has decided not to pay any more attention to the news to focus on raising her son, Theo.

"She's truly focused on raising Theo," the insider dished, adding that Nichols is currently "navigating motherhood as a single mom." The source also added that while Nichols and Thompson were still together, "he told her he wanted five to six children." After their paternity scandal, the athlete said he would "amicably raise" Theo with Nichols, but in February, she revealed that Thompson still has made no effort to meet Theo or offer "any financial assistance," per Page Six.

Meanwhile, Kardashian apparently still wants Thompson to be part of the lives of their children, but a source told Entertainment Tonight that she will be the primary caregiver of the new baby. "The two aren't together and Khloé will have the baby full time," the source said, adding that Kardashian won't be strict over the extent of Thompson's involvement with raising the kids. "Khloé wants Tristan in both the kids' lives as much as he wants to be." However, they said that the Kardashian clan is "extremely upset with Tristan" given what has happened, and that he and Kardashian don't speak outside co-parenting matters.
