Tristan Thompson has a lot to celebrate in recent weeks.
Fresh off signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, Thompson has become an American citizen.
Born in Toronto, the NBA player moved to the U.S. in 2009 on a student visa, but swore his oath on Tuesday.
In a statement to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Thompson said, “I came to the U.S. on a student visa and have always had big dreams. I’m now truly living the American dream.”

Thompson is currently living with partner Khloé Kardashian and their daughter, True, 2.
Only days before becoming an American, Thompson signed a $24.8 million CAD Boston Celtics deal which was celebrated by both Kim and Rob Kardashian.
“Congrats @realtristan13 Boston Here We Come,” Kim wrote on her Instagram stories.
