"If She Could Take Care Of A Grown Man ... I Know She Could Take Care Of A Baby"

Well wishes are coming Khloe Kardashian’s way from her ex-husband, Lamar Odom. The former NBA player told Access that he knows that Khloe will make a great mom and no one is more deserving of a little one than is ex-spouse.

“To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person,” Lamar told the show’s hosts. “I was really happy for her,” he added. “I know if she could take care of a grown man for four years the way she took care of me, I know she could take care of a baby.”


Odom also addressed Khloe’s comments about pretending to want a baby with him because of the nature of their relationship. “That was hurtful,” he admitted. “But I was going through some things at the time, so I didn’t really take it too personal.”

It was in 2015 that Lamar Odom’s issues with drugs came to the forefront. The former NBA player was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and nearly died by way of drug overdose. Khloe rushed to her then-estranged husband’s side and did everything within her power to ensure that he made a full recovery. Lamar has since gone the way of sobriety all while reconnecting with his kids.

“It’s good to be present,” he said during an interview with Wendy Williams. “I’m working on rebuilding my relationship with [my kids]. I lost a lot of time with them, you know, from being high. So I’m trying to work on getting that time back, re-establishing those relationships – especially with my son.”

Stay tuned to see what else the celebrity father rebuilds. Khloe Kardashian and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, are expecting their little one to arrive in coming weeks.
