Khloé Kardashian's best friend approves of her new boyfriend, James Harden.

Malika Haqq, who supported the 30-year-old reality TV star through her split from soon-to-be ex-husband Lamar Odom in December 2013, says she is a big fan of the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star's new man.

Asked what she thinks of the Houston-based NBA star, 25, she said: ''I like him. You know anyone who can put a smile on my best friend's face is good for me. You like it. I love it.''

Malika and her twin sister, Khadijah, also praised Khloé's older sister Kim Kardashian West, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, for having the confidence to pose naked recently.

Khadijah told E! News: ''I think it's beautiful. It's not always easy to be pregnant. It's something you want to feel the world is embracing...and I think she wears it well. I feel like she's celebrating.

''This one [pregnancy] has been a lot easier for her, and I think she would say it was worth the wait.''

Kim, who already has two-year-old daughter North, is set to give birth to a baby boy in early December.
