Tristan Thompson has made a public apology to Khloe Kardashian after paternity test results proved he is the father of Maralee Nichols' child.
Basketball player Tristan, 30, was hit by claims he had fathered a third child with personal trainer Maralee in December, which he remained silent on.
He is also a dad to daughter True, whom he shares with Khloe, 37, and son Prince, whom he shares with his model ex Jordan Craig.
But now, after receiving the paternity test results for his alleged child with Maralee, he has spoken out.
Writing in an Instagram story, Tristan said: "Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
"I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son."
He then added: "I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."
In another post, Tristan spoke directly to his ex-girlfriend Khloe as he wrote: "Khloe, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you
"You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not loved up with the way I view you.
"I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry."
Meanwhile, Khloe is yet to acknowledge Tristan's statement.
Tristan conceived the baby with Tristan while he was visiting the city to celebrate his 30th birthday in March – during the time he was back together with Khloe.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe confirmed they were an item as she posted on 13 March of the couple together with their three-year-old daughter True.
She penned in the caption: "Thank you for showing me everything you said you would. For the father you are. For the best friend I have in you."
But, the on-again-off-again couple are understood to have split in the summer.
A source told People last month that Khloe is "moving on".
The insider added: "Tristan and Khloe have been broken up for a while, and things are okay between them."
While another insider added: "Khloe's goal is always to create the best situation for True
"Regardless of what happens with Tristan, Khloe wants True to know that both of her parents love her tremendously."
