Tristan wanted a gag order issued on Maralee, claiming she was spilling stories to the press. She denied those allegations.

Maralee gave birth to their now-confirmed child on December 7 in L.A. She has shared a few photos of the baby on Instagram but has not revealed his name. It's unclear if Tristan has met the baby yet.
