Tristan Thompson's son with Maralee Nichols is also a baller.

On Oct. 7, the proud mom shared on her Instagram Stories a video of Theo, 22 months, kicking a soccer ball several feet while playing in a yard.

Maralee included in her clip an animated of a flaming soccer fall.

She has sole custody of Theo, her only child and one of the NBA star's four kids. Just before giving birth to him in December 2021, she filed a 2021 paternity suit against Tristan in Los Angeles. In 2022, a DNA test revealed he is the now-toddler's father and he and Maralee reached a child support agreement.

Theo is the second-eldest of the Cleveland Cavaliers player's children. Tristan is co-parenting True Thompson, 5, and Tatum Thompson, 14 months, with ex Khloe Kardashian and also shares son Prince Thompson with previous ex Jordan Craig.

On Oct. 5, her sister, Kai, criticized the athlete for not being a "real parent" to her now-6-year-old nephew, adding in her Instagram post, "You are NOT a good father if you can't be a good father to ALL of your children."

E! News has reached out to Tristan and Jordan's reps for comment on Kai's claims but hasn't heard back.

Tristan has himself occasionally shared images of Prince on social media, including pics of him with his sister True and a video of his eldest son showcasing his basketball playing skills. He has also posted many other pics of his daughter and in June, shared his first image of Tatum as part of a first birthday tribute.

Meanwhile, Maralee often posts images of Theo, offering small glimpses at their life together in Los Angeles. See her latest video and other past cute pics of her son:
