Kim Kardashian: Lamar’s Smiling!

The reality star shares that the NBA champ is making great progress.

Published October 18, 2015

It’s been an emotional week for the friends and family of Lamar Odom as he was recently hospitalized before falling into a coma due to reportedly intense drug use. Now that the athlete is awake and responsive, his family and friends continue to share with the world how he’s doing, with his sister-in-law Kim Kardashian adding that she recently saw him smile.


In a recent Instagram post, the soon-to-be mother of two told her followers that she and sister Kendall Jenner made him smile:

Thankfully, only positive news on Odom's state has been reported so far. Just days ago, the athlete woke up, asking for his children and also communicated with his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian, with reports that he made eye contact with her and said, "Hey baby" while giving her a thumbs up.

Health-wise, Odom's heart is said to be functioning "much better."
