TRISTAN Thompson was all smiles in a photo snapped alongside daughter True, whom he shares with Khloe Kardashian.
The NBA star confessed to fathering a child with Maralee Nichols earlier this year amid rumors he cheated on Khloe with the former trainer.

Tristan posted the photo on his Instagram Story.
He and True – often said to look just like her father – were all smiles in the sweet snap.
The tiny tot appeared to be holding a bubble wand in one hand.
Tristan captioned the image with two red hearts, adding nothing else.
The post comes amid news Tristan was traded from the Sacramento Kings to the Indiana Pacers.
Months before the news broke, he claimed he would retire from the NBA.
The athlete has yet to address the move. He also has not addressed the latest cheating scandal surrounding him, or posted about the child he fathered as a result.
His mistress, Maralee, has remained active on social media throughout the scandal.
She recently revealed, however, that her Instagram was hacked.
Although the problem was rectified, she said: “My account has been hacked since Jan 20 I finally just got it back.”
RADAR reported that during the period Maralee said the account was hacked, her Instagram Story included several posts asking fans for money.
In one such Story, she prompted her followers to invest, allegedly claiming those who did would be able to “increase your money 5/10 times.”
The fitness professional linked fans to her “backup account” which she had “been using,” posting 19 sexy snaps during her account struggled.
Upon returning to her original account, she shared a solo photo wearing a white outfit with high-waited leggings and a long-sleeve crop top.
She wore her hair in loose curls and rocked full glam in the photo.
Maralee excitedly shared in her caption that she’s “9 weeks postpartum” and already “back to my pre-baby weight.”
While Tristan hasn’t yet posted about the child he shares with Maralee, he did recently share an update on Prince, his eldest child.
The basketball player snapped a photo not unlike the one of himself and True with son Prince.
In the photo, the five-year-old wore a red Balenciaga top, smiling for the camera alongside his father.
Tristan, meanwhile, wore a gray T-shirt and silver necklace, cuddling close to the boy.
He added a series of hearts to the photo, which he posted just weeks after he confirmed that he fathered Maralee’s child.

He arrived in Philadelphia carrying an overnight bag and backpack.
Tristan wore a black hoodie, camo jacket, black joggers, white socks, and Nike trainers as he walked.
He capped the look off with a black beanie and a full beard covering the lower portion of his face.
Tristan revealed that paternity test results showed he was the father of Maralee’s child, and apologized to Khloe, after a month of speculation.
He wrote at the time: “Today, paternity test results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I looked forward to amicably raising our son.
“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
He then turned his attention directly to his ex, saying: “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 have certainly not lined up with the way I view you.
“I have the utmost respect and love for you, regardless of what you may think.”
His message concluded: “Again I am so incredibly sorry.”
Khloe and Tristan were never married, but share daughter True, three.
