Kris Jenner is blaming herself for Rob Kardashian’s ongoing struggle with anxiety, his weight gain, and his deep depression.
The momager, who helped deliver her son’s child, Dream, earlier this week, is said to have confided in friends about how guilty she feels for not being able to support Rob as much as she would have liked to.
Kris is alleged to have stressed that she sees a lot of her own insecurities in Rob, particularly with things that concern gaining weight and dealing with depression.

Jenner is horrified by the thought of knowing that her son has spent almost four years of his life in hiding and can’t seem to get his life back in control. While Rob had made some progress earlier this year, as People already mentions, he quickly fell off and gained back all the weight he had lost during his short-lived fitness plan.
The sock designer’s family have done everything they can to support Rob but nothing has worked. It has often left Kris feelings hopeless — she doesn’t know how to help her only son from wasting away his life behind closed doors, sources reveal.
The arrival of Dream Kardashian, however, has given Kris Jenner hope that Rob will gradually beat his depression and anxiety battle because only then can he become the best version of himself for the sake of his newborn daughter.
“Kris has definitely bottled weight issues and depression in the past, and she feels guilty that Rob may have inherited some of these tendencies from her. That’s why she’s so hopeful things will turn around for him now that he’s a father,” a source tells Hollywood Life.

“After Kris had Kourtney, her life changed dramatically. She was too busy to worry about herself or stress out about her weight. Everything just fell into place after she became a mom. That’s why she wanted another one and another one, and finally stopped at six!”
As mentioned, Kris Jenner made the decision to not only show up to the hospital where Blac Chyna was said to give birth, she entered the delivery room and held the socialite’s hand throughout the C-section process.
There’s no denying that Kris and her daughters weren’t too fond of Blac Chyna when it was first announced the twosome was dating. Jenner believed that the relationship would cause problems between her daughter, Kylie, and her boyfriend, Tyga, who infamously ditched Chyna for the 19-year-old in 2013.
After having found out about Blac’s pregnancy news with Rob Kardashian, Kris and the rest of the family quickly realized that it was important for everyone to move on and put their differences aside for the sake of the baby.
In recent weeks, the likes of Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have been gushing about their excitement of meeting Dream — they accept Chyna as Rob’s fiancée and mother of his only child.

Aside from having shown her support by showing up to the delivery room, Kris Jenner is also said to have helped Blac and Rob ink a multi-million dollar deal to televise the birth of their baby for the E! network, who plan on airing the special on December 18.
What do you make of Kris Jenner blaming herself for Rob Kardashian’s struggle with anxiety and depression, and do you think that the relationship the family has formed with Blac Chyna is genuine?
