Tristan Thompson says that he’s gotten “wiser” since the birth of his second child.
The former Chicago Bulls basketball player has posted a vague and cryptic Instagram post in the wake of welcoming his new baby with ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.
“I never switched sides, I switched lanes,” he captioned a photo of himself standing in front of a brick wall. “I got wiser and realize we aren’t all built the same,” Thompson added, alongside the hashtag #DontTryMe.

Kardashian and Thompson welcomed their second child, a son, via surrogacy earlier this month. But that doesn’t mean that they’re a couple again.
“The two aren’t together and Khloe will have the baby full time,” a source told ET, adding that “Khloe wants Tristan in both of the kids’ lives as much as he wants to be.”

The pair were in the process of rekindling their relationship last year when they decided to have a second child, to give their daughter True a sibling.
But after the baby was conceived last November, Thompson was at the centre of cheating and paternity scandals which saw the couple break up once again.
An insider told People that Kardashian and Thompson have not been romantically involved since December.

“Khloé is on cloud nine. Getting a sibling for True has been such a journey. She is very excited to be a mom again,” a source told People. “She really wanted a baby boy.”
“Khloé hasn’t shared a name yet,” the source added. “She is taking her time with the name. She wants it to be just right.”
Thompson has cheated on the KUWTK star multiple times, including an incident shortly before Kardashian gave birth to True in 2018.
