Lamar Odom thinks no one is more deserving of a baby than his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian. Things might not have worked out between Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian, but the former basketball player has nothing but kind words to say about his ex-wife’s pregnancy.

“To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person,” Odom, 38, told Access’ Kit Hoover and guest co-host Scott Evans during a preview of Monday’s episode. “I was really happy for her,” he continued. “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.”

In fact, Odom thinks that the baby will have nothing to want for, given the care and love it will get from her mother. “That’s gonna be one spoiled ass baby,” he added.

The NBA star got married to Khloe after one month of dating in 2009, with Khloe filing for divorce four years later. And although the split has been rocky, Lamar insists that he is ‘really happy’ for his ex.

Odom, 38, shared that some of his fondest memories with the Good American co-founder, 33, include their wedding and them “trying to make a baby.” The host then asked him what his reaction was when the Revenge Body star revealed in an episode of Keeping Up With Kardashians that she only “faked tried” to get pregnant during their marriage because of the circumstances of their relationship.

“That was hurtful,” the former Lakers player said. “But I was going through some things at the time, so I didn’t really take it too personal.”

Kardashian was by the basketball player’s side after his near-fatal drug overdose in 2015, even after they’d already separated. “I remember how good it felt. Actually, I didn’t really remember what happened. When I first woke up, I couldn’t talk or walk, so I was really scared,” he recalled. “But I was happy to see her. I tried to talk, but I couldn’t. I tried to tell her how much I loved her.”

During his marriage to the Strong Looks Better Naked author, Odom built a close friendship with her little brother, Rob Kardashian. “That’s my guy. I miss him a lot. I don’t speak to him at all,” Odom said, adding that he might reach out to the sock designer.
