"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," Thompson said.

Thompson previously disputed the paternity of the child, who was born Dec. 1. The baby was conceived during his relationship with Kardashian.

"Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years," Thompson said.

"My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry," he concluded the post.
