It’s been nearly three months since Lamar Odom’s horrifying brush with death and now his son, Lamar Odom Junior, has shared the first photo of the basketball star.

Although the 36-year-old still has a long road to recovery, in the snap he looks thrilled to be with his son and daughter Destiny, 17, who he shares with ex-partner Liza Morales.

“Christmas with my pops. Here's to 2016. Blessed,” 13-year-old Lamar Jnr. captured the touching family selfie.

Since Lamar was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel in October, he has been recovering at Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA. He suffered a series of strokes and was in a coma for several days.

And while his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian was told “he had four hours [left to live]”, Lamar has defied the odds and made a miraculous recovery.

However Khloe recently explained to Ryan Seacrest that getting the former athlete back to full health could “take a year – at least.”

Khloe has been by Lamar's side throughout his recovery.

Meanwhile it's believed the Khloe and Lamar star recently took his first few steps without the aid of a walker.
