When we first learned that Blac Chyna was pregnant with Rob Kardashian's baby, a lot of folks took to social media to express some very obvious concerns.
Chief among them was the fact that Rob and Blac were a terribly mismatched, ill-fated couple, and they'd only been together a few months when she got pregnant.
But beyond that, were fears about Rob's ability to raise a child.
After all, this was a man who'd spent the previous several years self-destructing in alarming fashion.
When he met Chyna, Rob was diabetic, obese, semi-reclusive, and coping with a number of severe emotional issues with compulsive overeating and substance abuse.
None of this is to shame Rob, as millions of Americans struggle with one or more of these issues, but it's not hard to see why so many were concerned by the prospect of Rob becoming a father.
These days, as little Dream Kardashian approaches the 5-month mark, some fan predictions have come true (Rob and Blac are broken up, seemingly for good this time.), while others have thankfully been proven wrong.
By most accounts, Rob is a capable and devoted father, and he enjoys posting photos of his beloved baby girl.
Rob posted the image above on Instagram yesterday, in order to celebrate the LA Dodgers' Opening Day.
“My dodger baby,” Rob wrote in the caption.
It's a cute pic made all the more adorable by the fact the Dodger hat is Rob's signature accessory.
The image comes on the heels of Rob opening up about his hopes for Dream on Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“I want our baby to learn the type of Armenian values that dad always put onto us growing up,” Rob told Khloe at one point.
Unfortunately, the episode also featured a scene in which Kris Jenner and company encouraged Rob to take better care of himself so that he can "be around for Dream" in the future.
It didn't go well:
"When my mom and my sisters gang up on me, it doesn’t really motivate me. It pushes me away,” Rob told the camera.
So yeah, Rob is not without his problems, but he does seem to be trying, which is more than we could say about him two years ago.
Sometimes kids help their more than parents help their kids.
