Maralee Nichols – the mother of Tristan Thompson’s newborn son – took to Instagram on Friday to show off her incredible postpartum body.
The raven-haired beauty, 31, appeared to be already back at the gym, as she stood on top of a workout mat inside of a studio and snapped a quick progress photo in the mirror.
The fitness model rocked a pair of pink workout leggings which showed off her tiny waist and flat abs.

Nichols paired the pants with a revealing cut-out white sports bra, and finished off her outfit with a pair of sporty white sneakers.
The new mom seemed to be wearing a face full of makeup for her gym session, apparently not concerned about sweating it off.
Meanwhile her long dark tresses were perfectly styled and gently fell down both her shoulders.
Revealed: On Monday, Tristan, 30, confirmed via his Instagram stories he fathered a child with Maralee Nichols after getting paternity tests results
On Monday, Tristan, 30, confirmed via his Instagram stories he fathered a child – a boy – with Nichols after getting paternity tests results.
And it has been revealed that Thompson declared his love for Khloe Kardashian, 37, on the social media app in March 2021 just hours before meeting up with Maralee and conceiving the secret child.
On March 13, 2021, Khloe gushed about Tristan on Instagram in honor of his 30th birthday – which, at the time, confirmed their very much on-again status.
At that time, Tristan commented under her post with ‘I love you soo much KoKo. Let’s keep building amazing memories!’

Khloe had confirmed their on-again status in the gushing post, writing: ‘The ones that are meant to be are the ones who go through everything that is designed to tear them apart and they come out even stronger than they were before. Thank you for showing me everything you said you would. For the father you are. For the best friend I have in you. I’m thankful that I can do absolutely nothing with you and it feels like everything.’
Adding: ‘I hope you know today and everyday how loved you are by me and so many. I can’t wait for all the memories. This is when life just starts getting good.’
Soon after he gushed about Khloe and declared his love, the cheating basketball player cheated and conceived the secret child with Maralee.
He flew with his team – the Boston Celtics – to Houston to play against the Rockets hours after comments.
Maralee Nichols previously claimed the child had been conceived while celebrating the NBA pro’s birthday in Houston in March 2021.
The Rockets played the Celtics in Houston on March 14 – one day after he posted his comments on Khloe’s Instagram and seemingly the day after their reported hotel meet up.
Maralee, 31, a fitness model, gave birth to their son on December 1, 2021.
At that time, Tristan and Khloe, who have had an on/off relationship plagued by allegations of his infidelity, were said to have been back together.
DailyMail.com exclusively revealed details of the paternity battle last month after Nichols filed a lawsuit against the NBA player.

‘Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,’ he confessed in an excerpt on his Instagram Story.
Additionally, he added an apology to Kardashian, writing: ‘You don’t deserve this.’
The admission posted to Instagram marked the first time the Sacramento Kings player has publicly acknowledged he’s now a father of three.
‘There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby,’ her lawyer, Harvey Englander, later told DailyMail.com a statement.
‘Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements.’
Latest addition: Maralee, a fitness model, gave birth to a son on December 1 and after the paternity test results came back, he stated: ‘I look forward to amicably raising our son’
In addition to his newborn son and three-year-old daughter True with Khloe, he also shares a five-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.
Tristan shared with his fans on Monday: ‘Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions.
‘Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed…
