Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian were married from 2009-2016. The two never had children while together, but Odom has two children from a previous relationship. Kardashian has 4-year-old daughter with current NBA player Tristan Thompson, who’s her recent ex.
In fact, Kardashian and Thompson are expecting child No. 2 via surrogate, even though they’re no longer a couple.
The announcement of the second child via surrogate was a surprise to many including Khloé’s ex-husband Odom. In a recent video obtained by Page Six, the former NBA Sixth Man of the Year joked that he wished Kardashian would have reached out to him.
“Oh, Tristan got caught cheating again? And they’re gonna have another baby? She could’ve hollered at me for that.”
The video of Odom making these comments surfaced just two weeks after the announcement of baby No. 2 on the way. On July 13, a rep of Khloé made an announcement that read like this.
“We can confirm that True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe and can focus on her family.”
Privacy is kind of hard when Tristan Thompson was spotted in Greece with another woman just days after the announcement.
Lamar Odom calls Khloe Kardashian "Hottie" in her latest Instagram photo, Tristan Thompson responds:

Odom And Khloé Had A Tumultuous Marriage
Odom and Kardashian married in 2009 after just four weeks of dating. Their marriage played out on television with the “Khloé and Lamar Show” on E! It was a spinoff of the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” and lasted two seasons. Their marriage officially ended in 2016.
At the time of her divorce filing, Kardashian cited infidelity, substance abuse and other things. Khloé even rushed to Odom’s side following his overdose at a Nevada brothel, sighting next of kin because the divorce wasn’t finalized. Odom recovered and even talked about Khloé during an episode of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
“It would be a blessing just to be in her presence to just tell her I’m sorry and what a fool I was. She has the right to never see me again for the things I put her through, but time moves on and people change. I would say I’m lot more loyal now.”
Odom Says He’d Prefer Taraji Over Khloé
While Odom poured out his heart to his housemates on the show, Kardashian wasn’t interested and was in a relationship with cheating Thompson. Odom recently mentioned that if he could have any of his past relationships back it would be with actress Taraji P. Henson, whom he was dating prior to Khloé.
Here’s what he told Vlad TV while promoting his new show “Celebrity College Hill.”
“Things ended with Taraji because I was an immature punk. I didn’t know how to tell her that I had fallen in love with another woman.”
He also stated he loves Taraji, and her upbringing was more similar to his. But he’s constantly commenting on what Khloé is doing, while she pays him no attention, at all, and has long moved on even if it was with someone who constantly embarrassed her in the public eye as well.
