Just because he’s been on a reality television show for more than ten years of his life, a lot of people think they know all there is to know about someone like Scott Disick. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case at all as there’s more to Scott than what people might think.
Sure, he’s someone who likes fast cars, fast parties, and a fast lifestyle but there’s more to Scott Disick than what we see on television or the gossip blogs. Here are ten times that Scott has truly surprised us as a person and as a father.
10 He’s More Of A Hands-On Dad Now
Sure, there might have been a time in which Scott would spend almost every other night partying at some of the biggest clubs in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Miami. But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
Now that he’s grown and matured, Scott would rather be a hands-on father to his three children: Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Realizing that you can’t take back the time that you lose with your kids, he wants to be there for all the important moments and milestones during their childhood. That’s why he’s settled down and prefers to spend his nights at home with his kids.
9 He’s Not Into The Party Life Anymore
Sure, Scott Disick still makes headlines for his relationships and some of the things he does with the Kardashian family, but he’s not the kind of person who gets in trouble anymore. As a matter of fact, a lot of his fans have noticed that it’s been a very long time since he’s made any negative headlines for his wild partying lifestyle.
Those days are over and out. In other words, Scott has gotten it all out of his system by realizing that there are more important things out there, like his family life and his role as their father.
8 He's Got More Character Than You Think
Quite honestly, Scott doesn’t get enough credit, especially from his public critics who think that he’s nothing more than a free-spending playboy. But believe it or not, Scott’s got more character than you think, especially when it comes to his role as a parent. “I think other people think if they were in [our] position, they couldn’t do it.
And I don’t think a lot of people are probably strong enough to do it,” Scott has said, via People Magazine. “And it’s not the easiest thing for us, but the fact that we’ve tried and we made it work makes life that much better.”
7 He Knows It Takes A Village
Scott Disick knows that he wouldn’t be able to raise his three kids on his own and that yes, it takes a village in order to be a good parent. That’s why he’s continued to work so closely with his ex-Kourtney Kardashian in making sure that their three children are raised in a loving, stable home with plenty of support and guidance.
He might not always get along with Kourtney, but he will always love her for being his children’s mother. “I couldn’t imagine raising three kids with somebody I couldn’t speak to every day,” he said, via People Magazine.
6 He’s Not A Quitter
It’s no secret that Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian have had their fair share of ups and downs in their relationship. But by no means is Scott a quitter. He’s made it clear that he’s tried to make their relationship work on more than several occasions.
According to E! Online, Scott has said, "I don't think anything is ever simple. We are trying to make the best of it and life goes on. Things aren't easy, [but] we are doing very well right now, and I'm just happy we are able to be on good terms at the end of the day."
5 He’s Not Ruling Out A Reunion
With the above said, that doesn’t mean that Scott Disick is ruling out a potential reunion between him and his baby mama in the future. Even though they’ve never gotten married, they’ve always remained by each other’s sides throughout the years and he plans to do so for a very long time, too. "I never thought a lot of things were going to happen the way they did.
So I don't rule anything out," he said, according to E! Online. "I don't have plans in my mind of what's going to happen so, you know, if things are meant to be they will be."
4 He Believes In Fresh Starts
Sure, Scott might have a reputation as a bad boy who can’t be tamed. But he says that he’s not the same person he was nearly a decade ago. He believes in fresh starts and changing your life for the better.
After all, Scott should know from his own experience. "Life was a little crazy for a while and I needed to take a breather," he said of his stint in rehab, via E! Online. "I spent some time in a really nice place in Malibu. Kind of reached out for my head over my shoulders and a restart in life. Sometimes you need a little bit of a time out."
3 He Doesn’t Want To Spoil His Kids
When it comes to all of the lavish and luxurious things in the world, Scott Disick has certainly seen it all. But when it comes to his children, he doesn’t want to spoil them or give them a childhood full of excessiveness. Along with Kourtney Kardashian, he’s working on making sure their kids stay grounded.
"It's important to not let them get too blinded by all the extravagant things. I want them to have things to look forward down the road," he said, according to E! Online. "So it's difficult, but it's also difficult not to spoil somebody you love."
2 Material Things Don’t Equal Happiness
For the longest time, Scott used to document all of his pricey getaways and his prized possessions – including his extensive car collection – on social media. Apparently, that’s the old Scott Disick because the new Scott doesn’t believe those material things equal happiness. He’s realized that the joy his car collection brings him isn’t an everlasting one.
Scott put it this way, (via E! Online): "I am very, very fortunate that I am able to have multiple cars, [but] I will say all the cars, all the things, it's definitely not all that it's cracked up to be. It's not really something that is going to buy happiness at the end of the day."
1 He Wants To Be A Role Model
At the end of the day, Scott Disick wants to be the kind of person that his kids can look up to, for better or for worse. While he knows that he’s made his mistakes in the past, Scott wants everyone to know that he’s changed. He’s better now and he’s definitely more focused. He wants to be a good father and a role model.
That’s why he’s worked hard to get rid of his vices and is working on being a family man, a provider, and a good partner. And we have to admit, so far, he’s doing one heck of a good job.
