Rob Kardashian is looking great. After struggling with weight gain and depression for years, the former reality star has stepped out in Los Angeles looking to be a fraction of his former self.
During an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians last year, Rob Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, revealed he had put on a whopping 100 pounds after leaving the show in 2012, but now, he seems to have shed a substantial portion of his extra pounds.

During Rob Kardashian’s recent outing, seen above, the Daily Mail revealed on March 23 that he was accompanied by his girlfriend Blac Chyna’s mother and her young son, King Cairo, who just so happens to be the son of rapper Tyga, who is dating Rob Kardashian’s younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner.
In photographs from Rob Kardashian’s shopping trip at a Calabasas, California, Toys R Us store, he was seen pushing a cart as King Cairo held onto the side. And in addition to bags filled with toys, likely for the little boy, Blac’s mother was seen holding a storage bin.

Rob Kardashian has been dating Blac since earlier this year, around the time he was diagnosed with diabetes, and while many members of his family appeared to be initially peeved by the controversial romance (due to Blac’s ongoing feud with Kylie), his mother recently spoke out, and she didn’t have anything negative to say about her son’s leading lady.
“I haven’t really seen her that much and I don’t know her as well as everyone else but she seems like a really nice girl and I just haven’t been around her too much,” Kris said of Blac during an appearance on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, according to a March 23 report by E! News. “But you know, [Rob Kardashian]’s been very, very happy lately and I think he’s in a really good place. I don’t know too much about their relationship.”
According to Rob Kardashian’s mother, he’s “doing really, really well.”
“[Rob Kardashian] feels, you know, much better about himself,” Kris said. “He’s trying to just get healthy and get in shape. He’s been working on a few projects.”
Although Kris didn’t come right out and say that Rob Kardashian’s new lease on life was the result of his relationship with Blac, it certainly seems that way. After all, he appeared to be getting worse and worse in the months leading up to his relationship. Then, just a short time after he and Blac began dating, he started eating healthier, working out regularly, and was even spotted out and about in Los Angeles, which hadn’t happened in months.
Rob Kardashian also recently celebrated his birthday with family at Nobu restaurant in Malibu, California, and while Blac was not seen during the party, she and Rob Kardashian did celebrated his special day, along with 3-year-old King Cairo around the same time.
As for the mysterious absence of Caitlyn Jenner during Rob Kardashian’s birthday festivities, Kris claimed she didn’t even know where she was.
“She could’ve been out of town, which is usually the case,” Kris guessed. “The kids were making calls and seeing, you know, who could come because we actually did it last-minute… you know, it takes a village to get the whole family together.”
Rob Kardashian’s family returns to the E! Network this spring in Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 12. A premiere date has not yet been set.
