While most of the celebrity gossip world reacted last week with shock and glee over the news that Khloe Kardashian was pregnant, there was one person on the planet who may have felt differently.
Could Lamar Odom really be happy for his ex-wife?
More than anyone, Odom is aware of how badly Khloe has wanted to start a family.
She’s talked about it for years.
She openly discussed fertility issues that she and Lamar encountered during their marriage, which came to an end after about four years, mostly due to Odom’s drug addiction and admitted adultery.
Each star has gone his and her separate ways at this point, although each has also made it clear that the other will always hold a special place in his or her heart.
So… back to the question above:
Now that Khloe is expecting a child with serious boyfriend Tristan Thompson, how does Odom feel about the development?
“I wish her well,” the former NBA star told Complex’s Everyday Struggle on yesterday, adding as always:
“Still got love for her.”
Odom did not directly address the pregnancy issue.
But there’s no doubt that he’s aware of it.
He must also know that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with a child she conceived via sexual intercourse with Travis Scott… AND that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a child early next year via surrogacy.
“Kanye is a good dude,” Lamar said in this same interview, referencing the overdose from about a year ago that nearly took his life and adding:
“He was there for me when I was in a coma, he was there for me when I woke up.
“I would say [our relationship] probably deteriorated with all the other relationships that were built. But it’s like that sometimes. It’d probably be weird [to contact Kanye now.
“But I would have no problem with it.”
Odom is slowly trying to rebuild his life after this extreme health care.
As far as we know, he isn’t dating anyone.
And he’s seemed to have given up hope that he’ll ever reconcile with Kardashian, especially now that she’s pregnant and especially now that she’s with a dude everyone seems to like.
“He’s very humble and generous,” an insider tells Us Weekly of Thompson, adding:
“He has an incredible sense of humor. Khloe is more outgoing than he is, but he has a great sense of humor and great group of friends.
“He is very mature and career-focus and very family-focused.”
