"He's doing really, really well. He feels much better about himself," Jenner, 60, told the Australian KIIS 1065 hosts of her previously reclusive son. "He's trying to just get healthy and get in shape, and he's been working on a few projects and we celebrated his birthday last night at Nobu Malibu with the family. It was really, really great."
Indeed, a beaming Kardashian was flanked by his loving family members for a dinner at the sushi hot spot this past weekend for his 29th birthday. His behavior has changed dramatically since he started dating Tyga's ex-fiancée, 27, this past January.
As reported, Chyna has encouraged Rob to reconnect with his family and live a healthy lifestyle. A source tells Us in this week's issue that the Arthur George sock designer has dropped a whopping 65 pounds since he was at his heaviest weight, and nobody in the family is more enthused than his mom. "Kris is so grateful to Blac Chyna for rehabilitating her son," another source tells Us.
Jenner confirmed directly to Kyle and Jackie O during her phone interview that her son is significantly happier these days — and, contrary to reports, she has nothing against his new girlfriend.
"I haven't really seen her that much and I don't know her as well as everyone else, but she seems like a really nice girl," the Kardashian matriarch said during her call. "I just haven't been around her too much. But you know, he's been very, very happy lately and I think he's in a really good place. I don't know too much about their relationship."
During her chat, Jenner also addressed another high-profile family relationship: her own with boyfriend Corey Gamble. "It's fine, it's great! He's sitting next to me, we're on our way to an event," she said. "He's the greatest. He's super smart and super nice. He's just a real great guy and the kids love him and we all have a really good time."
The mom of six also addressed why her ex, Caitlyn Jenner, wasn't at Rob's birthday dinner on Sunday. "I don't know even know where Caitlyn was to be honest! She could've been out of town," she speculated. "The kids were making calls to see who could come. We actually did it last minute, because it takes a village to get the whole family together. I think we picked a night when most people could come."
