Lamar Odom to spend Christmas with his children

LAMAR Odom will reportedly spend Christmas with his children.

The 36-year-old basketball star is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after being found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel in October, and will mark the holidays alongside daughter Destiny and son Lamar Jr.

A source said: "He has fought to get better mostly for them."

The pair are Lamar's children with his ex Liza Morales. While he speaks to them every day, Destiny and Lamar Jr. are apparently planning on flying to Los Angeles to celebrate the festive season with their father.

According to reports, the thought of seeing his children at Christmas is helping Lamar push forward and his condition is steadily improving.

The source added to Us Weekly: "He is supposed to be moved to the rehab centre any day now. He's actually making progress every day."

It remains to be seen whether Lamar's estranged wife Khloé Kardashian will be spending the holidays alongside her ex and his brood.

She did mark Thanksgiving with her former spouse by taking a home cooked meal to the hospital.

Her mother Kris Jenner recently revealed to E! News: "She really just wanted to get out of there and go see and make sure he was OK for Thanksgiving. I thought, 'Wow, that's an amazing human.' That really made my whole day."
