NBA Basketball Player, Tristan Thompson, 30, said he wanted to 'build more memories' with Khloe Kardashian hours before he cheated on her.
The star snuck off to meet with Maralee Nichols, a fitness model from Texas, who later fell pregnant with his third child.
On Tristan's birthday in March, his then-girlfriend Khloe had commented on his post with a length caption where she gushed over her boyfriend on his birthday.
On the Basketball player's birthday, Khloe wrote on his Instagram post: "The ones that are meant to be, are the ones who go through everything that is designed to tear them apart, every day, come out even stronger than they were before."
"I'm thankful that I can do absolutely nothing with you, and it feels like everything. I hope you know today and everyday how loved you are by me and so many."
He replied: "I LOVE YOU SOO MUCH KOKO let's keep building amazing memories!!!"
Shortly after Khloe's heartfelt post, Tristan flew with his former team, the Boston Celtics, to Houston on March 14 – where he would then cheat on his girlfriend with Maralee Nichols a fitness instructor from Texas.
Mother of Tristan's third child, Maralee, claimed that her newborn son had been conceived while celebrating the NBA pro's birthday.
She said Tristain claimed he was "single and co-parenting" at the time.
Maralee gave birth to her and Tristan's son on December 1, 2021, and said: "My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving, and private environment."
Although he previously denied the baby claims, a paternity test proved last week that he was the father of Maralee's child.
After the shocking confirmation, the NBA player had taken to Instagram to publically apologise to his former ex-girlfriend, with whom he shares three-year-old daughter True, Khloe Kardashian.
He said: "I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son."
He then addressed Khloe and said: "I sincerely apologise to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.
"Khloe, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
Khloe has not publicly responded to the recent news of the paternity test.
