That was fast! Lamar Odom, 40, is now engaged to his girlfriend Sabrina Parr, 32, which he revealed in an Instagram post on Nov. 11. Alongside a photo of Sabrina wrapping her arms around the NBA star — diamond ring on full display — Lamar wrote, “Introducing my new fiancé!! Soon to be Mrs. Parr-Odom. She the ONE!!!!” The health and life coach was just as ecstatic to break the news to her 119,000 Instagram followers on Monday. “I SAID YES!!!!! 💍👰🏽,” Sabrina announced underneath a slideshow of photos and a video that gave a closer look at the pear-shaped bling from Lamar.
This is a classic whirlwind engagement, since the couple have only been linked together since July of 2019. They were reportedly seen “gettin’ romantic on a Chipotle date” on July 29, per TMZ Sports, and the romance rumors proved to be true when they were filmed smooching in Atlanta and became Instagram official on Aug. 2. They were seen passionately kissing once again at Los Angeles International Airport on Aug. 15, and from then on out, they’ve been giving one other loving shout-outs online. Lamar’s 17-year-old son Lamar Odom Jr, who doesn’t seem too happy about this short relationship timeline, claimed that his dad has only known Sabrina for four months.
“Not a text or phone call to see how people who’ve known this dude his whole life to see how we would feel or react,” Lamar’s son wrote in the comments section of his dad’s engagement announcement. The teenager added that Lamar apparently only “knew shawty for 4 months” and that his dad’s “fam n friends already don’t approve of homegirl.” Lamar’s son found out about the proposal along with the rest of Instagram, because he added, “Shame family gotta find out on social media but that’s been how life been all the time as a son of an odom.”
Regardless, Lamar is seriously head over heels for the two-time State Track Champion. “I think I want more babies,” he told Us Weekly amid his honeymoon phase with Sabrina on Oct. 8, and went on to drop a big bombshell later that month! “Outside of my daughter, this is the most serious and committed relationship I’ve ever been in with a woman,” Lamar wrote in an Instagram post on Oct. 24, which showed him embracing and kissing Sabrina.
It was hard not to read that message as shade towards Lamar’s ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, 35! Khloe was famously married to the Los Angeles Lakers player between 2009-2016, which was plagued by Lamar’s affairs and addiction that he confessed to in his 2019 memoir, Darkness to Light. Khloe actually filed for divorce in 2013, but paused the process to become Lamar’s caretaker after he suffered a near-fatal drug overdose in a Nevada brothel in Oct. 2015. Now fully recovered, Lamar is doing amazing and even competed on Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars, which premiered this September. Congratulations to Lamar and Sabrina on their newfound happiness!
