Lamar Odom has said he is “really happy” for his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian over her pregnancy.

The reality star is expecting her first child with basketball star Tristan Thompson.

In a preview of Monday’s episode of US show Access, the troubled sports star said he thinks Kardashian will be a great mother.

He said: “To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person. I was really happy for her.

“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.”

He added: “That’s gonna be one spoiled ass baby.”

Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013 but called off proceedings temporarily after Odom was rushed to hospital after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel in 2015.

Reflecting on his happiest memories of their time together, he said: “Of course my wedding and us trying to make a baby,” adding he had been hurt by Kardashian’s recent comments that she had only “fake-tried” to have children with Odom.

He said: “That was hurtful, but I was going through some things at the time, so I didn’t really take it too personally.”
