The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 37, “loves all his children,” the insider continues, but “he totally dotes on Penelope and she adores him. She really looks up to him.”
In addition, the Talentless founder loves to spoil his 7-year-old princess. He spends “thousands of dollars on gifts” for her, another source previously told Life & Style. “Scott finds it hard to say no when they go shopping … He’s splashed out more than $5,000 in a day on Penelope before.”
While Scott has always been a devoted father, these days, he’s been spending more time with his three children — Mason, 10, Penelope and Reign, 5, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian. Ever since he and Sofia Richie called it quits in May, Scott has been seen hanging out with Kourtney, 41, and their kids. They celebrated his birthday in May along with the rest of the Kar-Jenners and recently enjoyed a family getaway to Wyoming.
As a result, the kiddos would “love” to see their parents “get back together,” a third source revealed to Life & Style. However, that seems unlikely for now.
“There’s a lot of water under the bridge, and while Kourtney loves having Scott around the kids more, she’s not about dating him again,” an insider told In Touch. “That’s not something she’s ready to embrace. Scott may feel differently, but his priority right now is his health and mental state.”
Instead, the former couple who split in 2015, are getting along well as friends. Kourtney has been helping Scott and supporting him after his split from Sofia, and the Poosh founder was instrumental in his recent decision to seek treatment. In April, Scott checked himself into a Colorado facility to deal with emotional issues relating to his parents’ deaths in 2013 and 2014. Scott left the facility after less than a week after photos of himself at the rehab center surfaced online.
“He’s so appreciative of the effort she’s making to help him on his road to recovery,” another source shared with Life & Style about his bond with the mother of his children. “Scott says he doesn’t know how he would’ve survived the past few weeks without Kourtney’s support.”
