If you’ve heard of Tristan Thompson, you probably know him for one of two things.
Either you know him as one of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ best players and the highest drafted Canadian NBA player of all time, or you know him as Khloe Kardashian’s cheating ex-boyfriend.
But do you know much about his two kids?
Who Is Tristan Thompson?
Tristan Thompson is a Canadian-born basketball player who has been playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers since the 2011-2012 season. He was instrumental in helping the Cavaliers reach the finals for the past four NBA seasons, and was a key player in the Cavs’ 2015-2016 season win, with many considering him to be the next LeBron James.
Not only is Tristan Thompson a skilled athlete, but this 6 foot 10 inch tall NBA champ is also a celebrity thanks to his relationship with reality TV and social media star Khloe Kardashian. In 2017, Khloe and Tristan started dating, and in December of that year, the couple announced that they were expecting a baby. Of course, Tristan Thompson himself appeared on many episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and numerous Instagram posts as Khloe’s boyfriend.
However, in April of 2018, all eyes turned to Tristan Thompson as rumours circulated of him cheating on Khloe Kardashian with Jordyn Woods, the BFF of her youngest half-sister, Kylie Jenner. This controversy made Tristan Thompson the most Googled athlete of 2018 and has transformed him into a household name.
While most everyone knows that Tristan and Khloe have a child together, did you know that Tristan actually has another child!
Who Are Tristan Thompson’s Kids?
Tristan Thompson has no wife and has never been married but that hasn’t stopped him from fathering two children from two different women. Tristan has a son and a daughter and he shares custody of his children and plays an active role as a father despite the complicated situation.
Prince Oliver Thompson
Date Of Birth: December 12, 2016 (2 Y/O)
Prince Oliver Thompson is Tristan Thompson’s firstborn son. He was born in 2016 to Tristan Thompson’s ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig, a model and lifestyle blogger from Los Angeles. Jordan Craig was Tristan Thompson’s girlfriend at the time of Prince Oliver’s birth, but there are rumours about that Tristan was already seeing Khloe Kardashian at this time. Cheating on his pregnant girlfriend!
This is the first time that Tristan Thompson was caught up in a cheating controversy, but it wouldn’t be the last.
Prince Oliver’s relationship with his father seems to be a good one, with Tristan willing to spend a lot of quality time with his toddler son. Initially, Jordan and Tristan decided to keep their son out of the public eye, restricting the amount of social media posts with Prince Oliver in them, and not showing his face when they did post a photo.
Thankfully, they have loosened up over the years so we can see a lot more of the adorable Prince Oliver, and it does look like he’s showing an interest in basketball like his dad!
Date Of Birth: April 12, 2018 (1 Y/O)
True Thompson is Tristan’s second child and first daughter. She was born to Khloe Kardashian, who believed that Tristan Thompson was her “forever love” at the time. True was named after her ancestors on her mother’s side, True Otis Houghton and Robert True Houghton, who were Kris Jenner’s grandfather and father, respectively.
While Khloe was pregnant, Tristan was enveloped in yet another cheating controversy where he was allegedly caught cheating on his pregnant girlfriend once again! Tristan was spotted kissing girls at a club and leaving with one of them.
Khloe was understandably upset by this news and was incredibly angry at Tristan, but he was very apologetic, and over time, the two reconciled and got back together—that is, until Tristan Thompson’s next cheating scandal.
In February of 2019, after months of working on their relationship, Tristan was once again accused of cheating, this time with Jordyn Woods. Sadly, this wound would never heal, and Tristan and Khloe’s romantic relationship seems to be dead and buried.
At this time, Khloe and Tristan are officially broken up and are just trying to focus on being good parents for True. True mostly stays with her mother, but Tristan seems to want to be there for her as much as he can, despite his busy athletic schedule.
Even though Tristan Thompson may not be the best boyfriend, he does appear to be a dedicated father and shows a lot of love towards his children. No matter what his relationship with their mothers are, Tristan Thompson’s kids are very well taken care of and loved, and we can’t wait to see how Prince Oliver and True grow up.
