They may be going through a tough time, but Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West plan on celebrating the holidays together, PEOPLE has learned.

A source confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple — who have both been making major headlines in light of her recent robbery and his hospitalization — are planning on spending Christmas together as a family with their two kids: North, 3½, and Saint, 1.

The news comes at a challenging time for the stars: West, 39, was only recently discharged from the hospital where he spent over a week being treated for exhaustion. The rapper’s hospitalization came less than two months after Kardashian West’s own traumatic experience, in which she was robbed at gunpoint and had millions of dollars worth of jewelry stolen from her in Paris.

Multiple sources have since confirmed to PEOPLE that West’s health crisis — which hit amid growing concerns over his erratic behavior — caused strain on the marriage and that it’s been a “tense time” for the couple, who spent some time living apart after he was released from UCLA Medical Center.

Nevertheless, Kardashian West, 36, has remained a steady source of support for her husband and an insider told PEOPLE last week that reports claiming the two are headed for a divorce are not true.

That being said, the two are still struggling with marital frustrations: A source told PEOPLE on Monday that West’s return to his busy lifestyle has caused friction.

“Kim still denies they are getting a divorce, but things are definitely not great between her and Kanye,” said the insider, noting that the couple has spent little time together since his release. “Kim acts annoyed. She seems miserable and is spending a lot of time with her family.”

Another insider, however, claimed while they may spend time apart, it’s not that out of the ordinary for the couple.

“They both do their own thing a lot of the time but they’re constantly checking in with each other about things — and especially about the kids,” said the source.

As for West, the rapper doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon: He arrived in New York City on Monday and was spotted out and about with his mother-in-law Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend Corey Gamble. A source tells PEOPLE the artist is in the city for meetings and is also working with a realtor to find an apartment, while Kardashian West remains in Los Angeles with the kids.

On Tuesday, much to everyone’s surprise, West met with president-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower.

“We’ve been friends for a long time,” Trump, 70, told reporters as the two posed for photos together. He added that the pair met to discuss “life.”
