Lamar Odom, is turning 36 and about to get his number one birthday wish: Khloe Kardashian spending the big day by his side. Things looked pretty bleak for the former NBA star following a reported drug overdose on Oct. 13, when he spent three days in a coma and was given a 50/50 chance of survival. Now that Lamar’s condition is improving and he’s making steady progress, he wants to celebrate beating the odds on his Nov. 6 birthday with the woman he loves, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report!

“36 is a big birthday for Lamar, and Khloe will be celebrating with him, birthday hat, cake and all! It’s an incredibly special birthday for him too – given the circumstances!” our insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Lamar’s one lucky man. Weeks ago, no one thought he’d live to reach 36 but God is good, and Lamar’s lucky and thankful he’s breathing,” they added.
It turns out there won’t be a need to unwrap any presents from Khloe this year, as her being by his side is his biggest birthday wish. Our source tells us, “Khloe hasn’t decided what present she wants to give him. She asked him if there was anything special he wanted. He said ‘you already gave it to me – and that’s you baby!’ He told her that calling off their divorce and sticking by his side amid his health crisis was the greatest gift of all.” So sweet!
“He told her that she literally gave him his life back. He has her love and there’s nothing else he wants from her than that! Khloe damn near melted on the spot when she told him that,” our insider shared. Our hearts are melting too! Khloe took such good care of him when things looked bleak, it’s no doubt her presence helped Lamar pull through such a dire medical emergency.
Lamar has been fighting to give their marriage another chance, even though Khloe has been rekindling her romance with Houston Rockets star James Harden, 26. She put that relationship on hold after Lamar’s medical crisis, but has been slowly reconciling with him after flying to Houston to watch him play on Oct. 28. At least Lamar can count on having the woman he loves with him as he turns another year older.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Khloe is giving Lamar false hope at romance by spending his birthday with him?
