In the clip, Khloe talks about her new nephew Saint West, the son of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and how much she love spending time with the new addition to the family.
“He’s just so perfect,” she said with a big smile on her face. “I just love him.”
In another video on her website, Khloe was very open about her personal struggles with anxiety and stress recently, Us Weekly reports.
“Lord knows I’ve had stress and anxiety lately,” she said, a not so subtle reference to the health battle her estranged husband Lamar Odom has been going through since he was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel in October. She’s also dealt with staph infection, which may have stemmed from the long hours she spent at Lamar Odom’s side at the hospital. “This year has been absolutely horrible, but it’s almost done. I’m just praying that 2016 will be better. It has to be.”
For Khloe, the best ways she’s found to deal with her stress has been working out.
“I promise you, the gym has taken away so much of my stress,” she confessed. “It has helped calm me down. When I’m fidgety and I just feel like everything is closing in, I go to the gym. You’re building endorphins and feeling good about yourself. It’s saved me.”
Recently, Khloe posted a cryptic message on her Instagram recently which gives us a glimpse into some of the turmoil she’s been going through in her personal life.
“Sometimes we expect more from others, because we would be willing to do that much from them,” read the image Khloe posted, black text against a white background. Khloe added no caption to further explain why she posted the image.
But even though she wasn’t clear about who she was speaking about, we do know that Khloe has been going the extra mile for Lamar Odom. As Samantha Wilson writes in Hollywood Life, “Is it possible that Lamar has started taking her generosity and selflessness for granted?”
Until Lamar was found unconscious in a room at the Love Ranch in Nevada.
Khloe has since halted divorce proceedings, although she insists this doesn’t mean that she wants to get back together with Lamar.
“I was expediting the divorce prior, and I’m still separated with him, but I’m just not expediting them anymore,” she revealed in an interview on The Today Show in October. “There was no reason for it. And also, [it’s] in his will that I’m always the medical adviser. And it was just — he had no one else to make these decisions for him.”
In the meantime, Khloe has been spending time with family and enjoying the holiday season with her brand new baby nephew. As she says in the video on her website, she’s still optimistic about her life despite the struggles she’s been through in the past year.
“I just always try to look at the glass half full,” she said. “We’re all human beings, and we all have the same problems. I do remember how blessed I am, and no matter how bad things are, they can always get worse.”
