Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians love to hate on NBA player Tristan Thompson — mostly because he cheated on Khloé Kardashian repeatedly while she was pregnant with his child. (Which is fair.)
Although it seemed like Khloé and Tristan were trying to work things out for while after the cheating scandal came to light, the last straw was when he kissed Kylie Jenner's former BFF, Jordyn Woods. That's when Khloé broke these off for good. Or so we thought.
These days, it appears Khloé and Tristan are closer than ever. (The the fact that they're social-distancing together with their daughter, True, likely plays a role in their reportedly rekindled relationship.) Interestingly, Tristan recently had to take a paternity test; but that doesn't seem to have negatively impacted him and Khloé.
However, it has prompted KUWTK fans to wonder: How many kids does Tristan actually have? Let's take a closer look.
Tristan shares a son, Prince Thompson, with his ex, Jordan Craig.
Tristan and his ex, model Jordan Craig, have a 3-year-old son together named Prince. Jordan was pregnant when Tristan and Khloé first met. Although he doesn't often post on social media about Prince, the NBA player did post a tribute to his son on his birthday in December.
“Happy birthday to my baby boy, Prince,” Tristan captioned an Instagram photo of his 3-year-old holding a red balloon in a hallway. “You’re already three. I remember holding you when you were born and telling you how amazing of a baby you are. Every day you continue to surprise me with your development, your love and your big heart.”
“Your smile is one that lights up every room you are in,” he continued. “I thank God every day for picking me to be your father. May God continue to bless you each and every day, son. I love you.”
Tristan has a daughter, True Thompson, with Khloé Kardashian.
Tristan welcomed his second child with Khloé (her first) in April 2018. Since then, True Thompson has periodically made an appearance on the NBA player's Instagram grid — but more often on Khloé's.
Even after Tristan and Khloé ended their relationship, they have remained dedicated to co-parenting True; they even celebrated her second birthday together as as family.
Tristan took a paternity test in January 2020.
In January 2020, Tristan took a paternity test after a woman named Kimberly Alexander claimed that he was the father of her child. The results were negative.
"Tristan has been open with Khloé from the beginning when it comes to the paternity test," a source told People. "He told her that he needed to take the test, but also that he didn't believe that he is the dad."
Tristan and Khloé ended up sending Kimberly a cease and desist letter so that she would "immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications," documents obtained by E! News read.
Tristan and Khloé have talked about having more kids together.
An episode of KUWTK that aired in April revealed Khloé had spoken to Tristan about donating sperm in order to create and freeze embryos from her eggs.
"After my doctor's appointment, I talked to Tristan because if you can create embryos and do all the DNA testing, I do think that's the smarter choice," Khloé said on the show. "But it's weird because Tristan and I, we're not together. I don't know which way to go."
Khloé ultimately decided to freeze only her eggs. However, she planned on doing a second egg retrieval, after which she would use Tristan's sperm to freeze embryos.
"I have no idea what the future holds for Tristan and I, but I really think I'll feel a lot better knowing I have five embryos in a freezer somewhere," she explained.
So no, that January 2020 paternity test did not reveal that Tristan has another kid. Which means he still only has two kids for the time being.
But who knows? Tristan could very well have more kids on the way in the future — whether that's through IVF with Khloé, or with a different woman entirely.
