Rob Kardashian is finally telling all.
The reality star, who went into hiding several years ago due to depression and his struggle with weight gain, is getting candid with People about dark times, falling in love with fiancée Blac Chyna and preparing to be a first time father.
Sometimes it takes one person to motivate someone to turn their lives around and for Rob, that was Blac. “She got me through my darkest times. I wasn’t happy in my own skin. I missed out on so many things.”
And although the duo’s romance might be new to the world, Rob reveals he’s been crushing on Chyna for years. “I’ve been friends with Chyna for a long time,” he says. “From the moment we met, I knew I wanted to be more than friends. She was someone I reached out to for advice. She would cook for me and we’d just talk. She’s surrounded me with a lot of positivity.”
Kardashian continues, “Chyna definitely motivates me. Being with her got me over the insecurity of being out in public. We just want to live our lives the way we want to. There were definitely dark days for me, and I’m still not fully happy looking at myself in the mirror. But I’m working towards that. And I’m happy.”
When it comes to Chyna’s feelings for Rob, the realty star admits, “I saw Rob was willing to better himself. I had never wanted to be tough. I never wanted to change him.”
The couple, who is gearing up for the premiere of their new reality show, Rob & Chyna, both grace the cover of People’s new issue out Friday. On the front page, Rob is dapper in a black blazer while his bride-to-be glows in a white gown. In the image, Rob holds Chyna’s growing baby bump.
