Rob Kardashian Is 'More Active' After Tough Year: 'Everyone Hopes He Can Turn Himself Around'
"He's been doing better and has been spending a lot more time around his family," a source tells PEOPLE
Rob Kardashian is working on himself.
The reclusive reality star turned 31 on Saturday and was showered with loving birthday messages from his famous family — but it was the photo he posted of himself looking markedly thinner while cuddling his 16-month-old daughter Dream that caught fans’ attention.
According to a source, while he still “needs to get his eating in check,” Kardashian has definitely been “more active” lately.
The source also says Kardashian has been surrounding himself with his tight-knit family and focusing on fatherhood as he attempts to move past his toxic relationship with ex-fiancée Blac Chyna.
“He’s been doing better and has been spending a lot more time around his family, which is good for him,” says the source.
“There is a lot of sympathy for Rob — he fell hard for Chyna,” adds the source. “He’s trying to focus on Dream and being a good dad to her. Dream is the sweetest little girl and loves Rob.”

These days, the dust with Chyna, 29, appears to have settled somewhat — and she even wished him a happy birthday on social media this weekend.
“Happy Birthday Rob from Dreamy and Chy,” she wrote alongside a picture of the former couple with their daughter, which she shared to her Instagram Story.
