Watch: Scott Disick Tells Khloe Kardashian She's "More Than An Aunt" to Dream

Khloe Kardashian has no problem keeping up with her nieces.

In fact, the reality star considers herself to be "more than an aunt" to brother Rob Kardashian's 6-year-old daughter Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna.

As seen in E! News' exclusive sneak peek at the July 13 episode of The Kardashians, Khloe is more than happy to help throw Dream a butterfly-themed birthday party, complete with pink-and-purple balloon arches and a multi-tiered cake.

"It's amazing," Scott Disick—who co-parents kids Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, with ex Kourtney Kardashian—remarked to Khloe, praising her ability to pull off the extravagant bash despite "everything you've got going on."

He continued, "I just can't believe that you're basically somewhat of a co-parent to Dream."

Khloe's take on the situation? "Just a third parent," Khloe—who is mom to daughter True, 5, and son Tatum, 11 months, with ex Tristan Thompson—said with a chuckle. "The third wheel—like most things in life."

The Kardashian Kids' Cutest Moments

However, Scott believed Khloe should take more credit, telling her, "You're not the third wheel. You're like the wheel that makes the car move."

Rob, 36, and Chyna, 35, welcomed Dream in November 2016. Three months later, E! News confirmed the pair broke up and were no longer living together.

For Khloe, her close bond with Dream stems from her maternal nature. As she explained in a confessional on the upcoming episode of The Kardashians, "Dream is like one of my babies too, just like all the rest of them."



"I absolutely love being a mom to people," the Good American co-founder continued. "I love mothering people."

She added, "It's so in my blood just to be a mom. I wouldn't have it any other way."

New episodes of The Kardashians drop every Thursday on Hulu.
