Kris Humphries bakes cookies, says he is 'moving forward' from divorce
Kris Humphries visited ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday with his mother Debra Humphries and said he is "moving forward" from his failed marriage.
"For me, it's just certain things happen in life and you've got to move forward," the 26-year-old NBA player said on the series. "Through everything I'm just focused on family and preparing for basketball. Basketball has always been something I've taken really serious and I continue to do that and I'm just moving forward."
In November, the basketball player filed an annulment of his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian, citing fraud. The documents also stated that Humphries would seek a legal separation instead of a divorce, if his annulment is denied.
When asked why he filed for an annulment, Humphries said, "Really right now I'm focused on basketball and other things will take care of themselves."
Humphries declined to say whether he still loves the reality star and acknowledged that the situation was out of his control.
"I'm focused on just what I can control," he said. "I don't really play into all the gossip and things that take place, but that's life."
Debra Humprhies comforted her son during the interview, placing her hand on his knee.
"We have so much to be thankful for, and that's where our family is at right now," she said. "We're not trying to look back. We're just trying to move forward."
Humphries and his mother also joined co-anchor Robin Roberts and Taste of Home editor-in-chief Catherine Cassidy to bake holiday cookies.
Humphries does not currently have a contract with an NBA team, following a long lock-out, but he told the morning news show, "Hopefully, I'll be on a team soon and get ready to go." Kardashian filed for divorce at a Los Angeles court, 72 days after getting married on August 20 in Montecito, California. The pair signed a prenuptial agreement which allowed Kardashian to keep all money earned during their short marriage.
"I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce ... I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work," Humphries said in a statement at the time.
Humphries acknowledged that he was going through a "very difficult time in my life" at a press conference on November 17.
Kardashian's E! network reality series "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" premiered on Sunday, November 27 to record ratings and revealed early troubles Humphries and Kardashian's marriage.
"He fell in love with me and I fell in love with him and now my feelings have changed," the 31-year-old Kardashian sister said. "I failed at this - you don't think I feel bad?"
One person who won't be tuning in for the series is Humphries, who told "Good Morning America," "The only things I only watch on TV of myself is playing basketball. I've never really been one to watch the show on TV. For me my focus is just basketball, my foundation, my family and moving through life."
