Lamar Odom has been pictured for the first time since his hospitalisation. The 36-year-old was captured at Christmas with his two children in a touching family selfie, posted by his 13-year-old son Lamar Odom Jr and captioned: ‘Christmas with pops’  The family picture said beside it: ‘Christmas with my pops.

Here’s to 2016. Blessed.’ with just half of the basketball player’s face featured. It’s not clear from the self-shot whether Lamar is still in his hospital room, though his son and daughter had evidently joined him for the holiday season. Khloe Kardashian, Lamar’s estranged wife, is reported to have flown the children out to Los Angeles, where he’s currently still being looked after.

A source said on Tuesday that: ‘Khloe flew Lamar’s kids out to L.A. so they can spend time with him, and Khloe came to Houston for a few days while his kids are in LA with him.’

She is said to have visited him several times herself over the holiday period before deciding to spend some quality time with Houston Rockets star James Harden over New Year’s.  The snapshot comes as Khloe was pictured kissing on-again-off-again beau James on New Year’s Eve. The pair were pictured together on Thursday night in Houston where James plays for the Rockets basketball team. And thanks to cell phone video from someone at the same party, Khloe, 31, and James, 26, were caught locking lips in a sexy smooch as they reunited in Texas after spending Christmas apart.
