Tristan “Third Trimester” Thompson is 32.
Kris Jenner posted a rambling birthday tribute to her daughter Khloé Kardashian’s unfaithful ex Monday, calling him a “special part” of their family.
“You look at the glass half full and it has been so great watching you grow as a dad, a friend, a brother, an uncle and a son,” the momager wrote of the NBA player in a series of Instagram Stories.
Jenner, 67, praised Thompson for showing her “such inspiration” and teaching her “many lessons when it comes to how you deal with adversity and challenges that seem insurmountable.”
“You have used these challenges as opportunities to better yourself day by day,” she captioned a photo of the athlete and his 4-year-old daughter, True, whom Kardashian, 38, welcomed just two days after her then-boyfriend was caught cheating for the first time.
Jenner also shared a picture of Thompson with his mother, Andrea Thompson, who died suddenly of a heart attack in January.
“I know this year has been hard so far, but you seem to find the positive and the light amongst the sadness,” she wrote, later adding, “I know how proud your mom is of the man you have become.”
The Kardashian-Jenner family’s matriarch went on to thank the Chicago Bulls center for being “such a special part of our family” before concluding her length message with, “We love you very much!!”
After Tristan lost his mother, Jenner, Khloé and Kim Kardashian attended Andrea’s funeral, suggesting that the family had once again put the basketball star’s repeated infidelities behind them to support him as he grieved.
Khloé’s appearance at the memorial service sparked rumors that she had reconciled with Tristan once more, though she clarified on Twitter in February that she was still single.
Later that month, Tristan was caught “liking” a multitude of sexy snaps on his former girlfriend’s Instagram, adding fuel to the speculation that they were back together.
The Good American co-founder was most recently spotted with Tristan last Friday as they partied together to celebrate her BFFs Malika Haqq and Khadijah Haqq’s 40th birthday.

The former Cleveland Cavaliers player’s on-again, off-again relationship with Khloé has been marred by multiple cheating scandals on his part over the years.
The exes share True as well as a 7-month-old son whose name they have yet to reveal.
Tristan also has a 6-year-old son, Prince, with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig as well as a 1-year-old son, Theo, with his onetime paramour Maralee Nichols.
Khloé last dumped Tristan in December 2021 after finding out Nichols was pregnant just one month after the then-couple hired a surrogate to have their baby boy.
Tristan initially denied being Theo’s father, but a paternity test found otherwise in January 2022.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” he wrote on social media at the time. “Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.”
Tristan has also publicly apologized to Jenner in the past, saying in a 2020 episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that he felt “really sad” about letting her down one of the many times he cheated on her daughter.
And now it seems Jenner has accepted his apology.
