<p><span></span>"Lamar's devotion makes me want to cry because the only other person who gave that to me was my dad" - Khloé to <em>Life & Style</em><br />
Khloé Kardashian understands the haters. In fact, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is the first to admit that her whirlwind romance with basketball star Lamar Odom -- who has a $33 million contract with the LA Lakers and whom Khloé wed after just four weeks of courtship -- might arouse suspicions that she's simply after his money. In a new interview with Life & Style, she sets the record straight and opens up for the first time about falling in love, fighting the rumors and being ready to start a family. "The media definitely stir things up," she tells Life & Style. "So many people judge us. They don't know me or Lamar -- we're so happy."
L&S: Looking back, do you wish you'd waited longer before getting married?
Khloé: No. I really wouldn't have done it any other way. Many people have judged me, but I don't care how it looks to someone else. We're completely content, and that's the best feeling in the world.
L&S: How is Lamar different from other men you've dated?
Khloé: I've just never felt deserving of this kind of attention before. Every single night before I go to sleep, he tells me how beautiful I am and how lucky he is to have me. I know it sounds cheesy, but I've never in my life met someone who I love this much. Lamar's devotion makes me want to cry because the only other person who gave that to me was my dad.
L&S: Asked when he wants to start a family, Lamar replied "soon." What's your take on kids?
Khloé: He's said that kind of stuff to me in private -- but I was shocked when he said it publicly! I didn't know he was that comfortable talking about it. Lamar wants to start having children tomorrow. He already has two beautiful children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., but he can't wait for me to have more kids and form this new family. I know how happy he would be, and I'd love to have kids. But ideally I want to wait at least until we've settled into our new house.
