Earlier this week, a source told PEOPLE that Thompson attended the birthday party that Kardashian threw for their daughter True.

"Tristan shows up for every birthday and important event for True," the insider said. "He is a great dad. He is very involved."

The source added that Kardashian and Thompson have been amicably co-parenting their little girl despite drama surrounding their personal relationship.

"Khloé gets along with him. The focus is on True and they have the same goals for her," said the source. "They want her to have the happiest childhood possible."

A rep for Thompson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Kardashian documented True's cat-themed party day on her Instagram Story, showing off the pink and purple balloons, flowers and three-tiered birthday cake she got for her little girl.

The festivities included a trampoline, bounce house and slide, ball pit, face painter and a pool. There was even an appearance from a performer dressed as a Squishmallow cat as well as Squishmallow party favors that said, "True, we hope you have the purrr-fect birthday!"
