Given Tristan Thompson’s high-profile relationship with ex Khloe Kardashian, it’s no wonder that the child they share, toddler daughter True Thompson, tends to get most of the attention in the media. But Thompson sharing a rare photo of son Prince for his third birthday reminded us that True isn’t the only adorable Thompson kid out there.
If you’ve been following along at home, you know that Thompson’s son Prince is from a former relationship with Jordan Craig.
Well, now Prince is three years old, and he’s just as cute as can be. For evidence, we point you to proud dad Thompson’s latest Instagram post, in which he pays tribute to his son on that special day.
“Happy birthday to my baby boy Prince,” he captioned the sweet snap of the little guy holding a red balloon with a gleeful smile, clad in a holiday-appropriate sweater. “You’re already 3, I remember holding you when you were born and telling you how amazing of a baby you are.”
Thompson continued to gush about his son with pride and amazement. “Everyday 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 wrote. “I thank God everyday for picking me to be your father. May God continue to bless you each and everyday son. I love you.”

Happy birthday to my baby boy Prince. You’re already 3, I remember holding you when you were born and telling you how amazing of a baby you are. Everyday 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. I thank God everyday for picking me to be your father. May God continue to bless you each and everyday son. I love you❤️❤️❤️❤️
While we’re not on board with a lot of Thompson’s behavior, we have to give him this: The man is always, always there with a timely birthday post. In June, he shared a birthday snap of ex Khloé calling her “the most beautiful human” and “an amazing mommy,” despite the fact that the two weren’t on the best of terms. And of course, he posted a photo for baby True’s birthday too — days after what Khloé describes as an “awkward” birthday party for their daughter.

Happy birthday @khloekardashian You are the most beautiful human I have ever met inside and out. Thank you for being an amazing mommy to our princess True. She is blessed to have someone like you to look up to. I wish you nothing but more success and sending you positive blessing your way. Enjoy your day Koko ❤️
The point is this: Thompson is by no means a model of perfect behavior, and we hope he’s as openly loving in person as he is in these captions. But if birthday posts are a way Thompson’s found to express how much he cares about his kids (and the mother of his kid), we’re here for it. And not just because both Prince and True are so, so cute.
