Khloe Kardashian encountered plenty of haters when she married Los Angeles Clippers forward Lamar Odom in September 2009 after a whirlwind courtship. But now, the two are happily proving them wrong celebrating their four-year anniversary.
As the story goes, the reality starlet and the basketball player walked down the aisle after only a month of dating. And they’ve been in wedded bliss ever since. “I love my little lamb. He’s pretty cute,” Khloe told MTV News about her hubby. (Khloe recently became an aunt again when big sister Kim gave birth to her daughter with Kanye West last weekend.)
She further noted that she’s not surprised people initially doubted Khloe and Lamar’s lasting power. “I met him on August 27 and I married him on September 27, so it was 30 days. That’s the first time I ever met him, so I completely understand everyone’s criticism,” she said. “If I wasn’t me, I would have been judging too. I would have been like ’You’re crazy and you’re insane and you don’t even know this person.’ But I just felt something. We both did and I went with it and it’s fun. I love our story too. I’m not sure I would recommend it for everyone, but I love that I could say this is our story.”
Fans do too. Khloe and Lamar have immortalized their love several times on the small screen, including their own E! wedding special and later on their spinoff series, “Khloe and Lamar,” as well as the flagship “Keeping Up” series. “Time flies. Time really does fly,” she said. “And I consider myself a newlywed. Four years is a lot in this weird world that we’re all in, but it’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things.”
Despite the Kardashians’ latest bundle of joy, Khloe shares she hasn’t caught baby fever from big sister and new mom, Kim. She said, “I’m 28 years old [and] I’ve been married almost four years now. I’m still in my newlywed phase is what I call it, so whenever it’s time for me to have a baby, that’s when it’s gonna be time.”
