LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kris Jenner described Khloe Kardashian's son Tatum as the "spitting image" of his late grandfather Robert Kardashian.
In Wednesday's episode of 'The Kardashians', Jenner, 68, who was married to the lawyer from 1978 to 1991 and has four children with him, shed tears as she considered the similarities between Tatum, who is 15 months old, and Robert, who died in 2003 at the age of 59.

Kris Jenner says 'Tatum is Robert Kardashian Sr'
She added, "Tatum is Robert Kardashian Sr. He is my ex-husband in a baby form, even his little mannerisms, his little smile, the way he looks at me. I look through those eyes and I see his little soul, and I'm like, "Yup, there he is. The DNA is real."
Tatum and Khloe's father share a similarity, which Khloe has already acknowledged, writing on X last year: "He’s the sweetest most affectionate little man. He really reminds me of my dad and my brother. It’s beautiful."

He was also one of Simpson's attorneys during his highly publicized murder trial.
