Lamar Odom Had a ‘Very Emotional’ Christmas with His Kids

It was a very merry Christmas for the former basketball star.

Even though Lamar Odom wasn’t able to fulfill his wish of checking out of Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai by Christmas day, he was still able to enjoy his holidays with his family by his side.

Odom’s children, Lamar Odom Jr., and Destiny, flew to LA to spend the holiday with their father, and a source revealed to Us Weekly, it couldn’t have put Odom in a better mood. “Lamar is doing way better. He was so happy the kids were there with him for Christmas and they were so happy to be with him,” the insider said. “The kids were happy … to bring him gifts, all of his favorite things that they wrapped up. They had so much fun. It was very emotional and very happy.”

Lamar Jr. shared a snap from their holiday celebration, revealing the first image of Odom since he was admitted to the hospital after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. Lamar Jr. captioned the photo featuring his father and sister Destiny, “Christmas with my pops. Here’s to 2016. Blessed.”
