Scott Disick is trying to make amends with ''the people around him'' after he ''hit the bottom'' several years ago.

The 36-year-old reality star - who has Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and Reign, four, with his ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian - used to be known for his partying ways, which had a hand in breaking down some of his key relationships, including his romance with Kourtney.

And after turning his life around in the last few years, Scott - who is now romancing Sofia Richie - is said to be working hard to ''make it up'' to those he's close to.

Willa Ford - who stars with Scott in his new reality show 'Flip It Like Disick' - told Us Weekly magazine: ''He's been through a lot. I think he hit the bottom. I think he's recognised the error in his ways, and now he's just trying to make it up to his family and the people around him. It's a great story to be a part of.''

Meanwhile, Scott was recently seen on a teaser clip for his new show, talking to Kourtney, 40, about how he ''struggled'' with parenting at first.

He said: ''I was just so insecure that everybody would look at me like I'm not cool or young anymore. Now, I couldn't be happier.''

And the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star replied: ''You told me all the time you weren't the soccer dad.''

To which Scott added: ''Now that it's part of life and they want me to be there, I'm happy to be there.

''It was really, really, really difficult at first. I did not know how to be a dad, how to take care of kids and how to be there for them. And I feel pretty confident that I'm able to now and it's great.''

During the clip, Kourtney also acknowledges that for much of their on and off romance - which lasted from 2009 to 2015 - Scott was ''depressed'', and says his new positive outlook on life has made him a better father.

She told him: ''You didn't really appreciate what you had, and you were also depressed and there was other things going on. You've definitely come a long way. I'm very proud of you.''
