Tristan Thompson is giving his baby girl True a shout-out as she turns 1.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player took to social media on Friday to wish his daughter, whom he shares with Khloé Kardashian, a happy first birthday, sharing a collection of adorable images from True’s first year.

True is smiling widely in almost every shot — one of which includes her big brother Prince Oliver, 2, as the siblings play in a ball pit — and cuddling close to her dad in one particularly sweet photo taken as Thompson practiced skin-to-skin with his daughter shortly after her birth.


“True-ly Perfect,” the basketball pro captioned the pictures. “My baby girl is one today. Man time goes by soo fast but i’m loving every minute of it. Can’t wait for us to sit home all day and watch lion king and paw patrol lol. ❤️❤️❤️ #MyTwin.”

Thompson and Kardashian welcomed their first child together on April 12, 2018, in Cleveland. The 28-year-old athlete shares son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.

A source told PEOPLE last month that Kardashian, 34, was trying to work out the best way to celebrate True’s birthday after Thompson was accused of hooking up with Jordyn Woods, a longtime friend of the famous family.

According to the insider, Kardashian’s family members — in particular, sister Kim Kardashian West — were furious with the NBA player, who was first caught allegedly cheating on Kardashian last year when photos and videos surfaced of him getting close to other women just two days before she gave birth to their daughter.

So for True’s birthday, “Khloé is figuring out how to get Tristan involved,” the source explained. “She can’t see how he can be around her family at a party, though. Everyone is just too upset with him.”

Meanwhile, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been focusing on staying positive in the wake of the scandals — and passing that same type of energy on to her baby girl.

Last week, Kardashian posted a super-sweet video of True taking part in her daily affirmation practice. The clip began with the baby girl sitting in front of a mirror with a big smile on her face as she recited the word so many positive mantras begin with: “I.”

Next, True adorably went up to the mirror, leaned in and gave her reflection a kiss. “Do you love yourself?” Kardashian asked her daughter. “Do you say, ‘I am so beautiful?’ ”

Pointing True toward her own reflection, Kardashian urged her, “Say, ‘I am so happy,’ ” prompting True to lean in to give her reflection another smooch before her mama added encouragingly, “Yes, I love myself. I am so strong.”
