She’s kept fans guessing about pregnancy rumors – even coyly saying she was “just fat” – but Khloé Kardashian will soon be sporting a real baby bump if her husband gets his way.

“We would love to be able to raise children together,” Lamar Odom told PEOPLE Monday at the Casio Shock the World event in New York City. “That’s something that happens when you become a family. Hopefully it’ll happen soon.”

The reality star, 26, and NBA player, 30, are already stepmom and dad to Odom’s two kids, Destiny and Lamar Jr., from a previous relationship, but they’re still picking up some parenting tips from the Kardashian clan’s newest member.

“[Mason] definitely gives us some insight, some practice,” the Lakers forward and newly named Casio G-Shock brand ambassador says about his almost 8-month-old nephew. “[He] is a special little boy.”

But for now, the couple is focused on their own relationship and looking forward to squeezing in some one-on-one time in the middle of their hectic summer schedules.

“People would be surprised about how we’re big time homebodies,” he says. “[We like to] just stay home, relax with a movie. Khloé loves champagne – and laughing.”
