Someone’s catching feelings again! Tristan Thompson swooned over a Khloé Kardashian body pillow on his Instagram Stories hours after sharing a sweet message in honor of her 36th birthday.

“Lawd Gawd [sic],” the 29-year-old wrote over a photo of the pillow, complete with four heart-eyed emojis to hammer home his point. It’s clear the Cleveland Cavaliers player has a soft spot for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star at the moment — especially after his birthday tribute to the mother of his daughter, True Thompson.


“I’m wise enough now to know you came into my life to show me just what it means to be an incredible person. I appreciate how I am able to learn from and grow because of you,” the basketball star wrote over a photo of the trio laying on a trampoline. “I thank God for the beautiful and loving woman you are to everyone, especially our daughter, True. You deserve the world, KoKo! True and I love you, mama.”

Khloé seemed to be feeling the love as well. “Awww, this is sweet!!” she commented on the post, adding two prayer hands emojis. “Thank you TT.”

The pair split in February 2019 after Tristan allegedly cheated on the Good American founder with Kylie Jenner‘s former BFF Jordyn Woods — but their connection seems to be on the upswing. The coparents were quarantining together during the coronavirus pandemic and “have been trying to work their relationship out for a while now,” an insider told In Touch on June 11.

The Revenge Body host was “worried” about going public with their relationship again for fear of the “backlash” she might receive. “She didn’t want to hear everyone’s opinions. She takes everything to heart — all the tweets, IG comments, etc. — and she reads everything,” the source added. “She wanted to keep this relationship to herself for months, and she hardly even talked about it with her sisters.”

It makes sense KoKo would be a bit nervous about bringing her relationship back into the public eye. She dealt with haters over pregnancy rumors in May, with fans openly putting her down for possibly rekindling her flame with a man who was involved in two public cheating scandals throughout their time together.

In her response, Khloé asserted the rumors were not true and that it was her life — and hers alone to live how she pleased, pregnancy or not. We guess we’ll have to see where things go for these former flames!
