When asked if he thinks the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 34, is a good mom to her 13-month-old daughter, True, the NBA player, 39, told Us Weekly exclusively on Tuesday, May 28, “Definitely. 100%. That’s got to be one spoiled baby.”
The athlete added: “There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s the best mother ever because she took care of a 29-year-old man like he was a baby. I had every candy, cookie, juice, champagne, ice cream. I didn’t need anything and that’s just on the small scale. She made this room for me in our home. She’s an incredible homemaker, but all women in that family are.”
“My baby is 1 today. Where does the time go?” the reality star wrote on Instagram on the little one’s first birthday. “Happy birthday my sweet True!! You are my ultimate True love! I am honored and so thankful to be your mommy! Today and until the end of time, I love you!! We have forever.”
The E! personality was married to the forward from 2009 to 2016. During their relationship, Kardashian documented their infertility struggles on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“At the time, I was like, ‘Oh, I have to have a baby!'” she admitted on a March 2016 episode of Kocktails With Khloé. “That’s all I wanted at the time, and I thought it would maybe fix the situation [with Odom], so I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young. I was 27, and I thought, ‘A baby will fix this,’ and it’s not going to fix that.”
