Although relationships between basketball players and TV stars have a notoriusly bad track record (Does anyone remember Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra's quickie, 9-day marriage back in 1998?) Khloe Kardashian and her 30-year-old LA Lakers husband, Lamar Odom, have defied the odds by making it to their one-year wedding anniversary.
While most couples celebrate this marriage milestone with a quiet dinner or romantic trip, Khloe made sure that their anniversary made front page news. Never one to pass up an opportunity for good press, the 26-year-old reality star posted a gushing tribute to both her husband and her marriage on her blog:
"A year ago today I married my best friend. I am so excited to be celebrating our one year anniversary!!!! I can't believe it has been a year already, it feels like we just got married yesterday, but at the same time I can't believe it has ONLY been a year. I feel like sooooo much has happened in just one year. My life has changed so much, and I as a person have changed even more. I have never been happier, never been so at peace, never been so in love. I am a better person because of Lamar. I laugh constantly! He brings so much laughter, happiness and fun to my life yet he also keeps me calm and grounded. I feel like I truly discovered myself the moment I met Lamar. 365 days have passed since we got married and each and every one of those days my husband has been the first thing I think of when I wake up, and the last thing before I go to sleep. I truly wish this kind of happiness upon everyone, I feel so blessed...Happy anniversary to the love of my life! Thank you for everything you have given me. I love you. I can't wait for our 80th wedding anniversary!!"
Meanwhile, Lamar planned a surprise for his wife by taking her back to the Beverly Hills mansion where they married last year. Leading her blind-folded to the exact place where they tied the knot, the couple then renewed their vows.
"Lamar has truly made our anniversary more special than I ever could have imagined," Khloe wrote afterwards. "The day has been somewhat like a treasure hunt, moving from one surprise to the next...I'm on cloud 9 right now!" It’s Baby Talk For Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom
Khloe also Tweeted about their anniversary and shared a photo of a purple, velour tracksuit that Lamar had given her with the words "Mrs. Odom" and the number 1 printed on the back.
Our congratulations to the happy couple! With all of the buzz surrounding Khloe getting pregnant, we're sure it's just the first of many milestones in their relationship.
