Kim Kardashian is a fashion mogul, a social media star, and, of course, a mom to four children. Although she has a team of assistants to help her business dealings run smoothly when this team goes home, she is still a mom, and you better believe she has her hands full!
But she wouldn’t want it any other way and has admitted that motherhood is a “gift,” and one that she does not intend to take for granted. Her family is her first priority, and although she lives a lavish lifestyle, there have also been some moments which have not been so glamorous: Kim’s had to deal with a toddler throwing a tantrum in public, and she’s looked exhausted trying to go about her daily errands with her kids. Below are 20 photos that give us a glimpse into Kim Kardashian’s mom life.
Being a parent is not easy, and there are times when your child is having a bad day and just won’t co-operate, and you better believe that Kim Kardashian has experienced this before! But she also shares a similarity with her firstborn, North: They have the same crying face — a face Kardashian has made headlines about, and inspired memes, of course.
Kim Kardashian is a busy woman, and in her day-to-day life she needs people to help her out, but when she’s at her home and her employees have gone to bed, she clearly has her hands full. Kardashian and Kanye West are raising four children, all under the age of six!
When Kim Kardashian first became a mom, she did something that caused many people to roll their eyes: She took North to a fashion show. Fashion shows, especially those during Fashion Week, are prestigious events and only the fashion industry’s elite gets offered tickets to be a part of the experience. But Kardashian thought it would be a good idea to take her 19-month-old child with her to support Kanye West’s show for Adidas, and she probably came to regret that decision.
Kim Kardashian’s version of motherhood is a little different to the average mom's, and it seems that one of the perks for her is to be able to dress her daughter as her mini-me. North West has made headlines for her impressive wardrobe, and it seems she already shares her mom's love of fashion.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan enjoy the success they do because of their willingness to share their lives with the public, that, and their skills at using social media to build a brand. Their fans expect new pictures regularly, and if there’s no photographer on-hand, well, Kim Kardashian can always ask her six-year-old daughter to help out!
Kim Kardashian is celebrated for her beauty and style, and there is no denying that she understands fashion and usually looks impeccably groomed, but her two pregnancies (especially the first one) were hard on her. She has spoken about the birth complications she had on her blog, Us Weekly notes, which is why she decided to welcome her third and fourth children via surrogate.
Kim Kardashian is one of the most stylish women in the world, and sometimes her posts with her family make motherhood seem so glamorous (of course, moms will know that this is not always the case, and sometimes it’s an effort to brush your hair, let alone dress up in sequin dresses or crop tops).
We may hold celebrities like Kim Kardashian to a higher standard, but even they don’t always look amazing and refreshed. The paparazzi follow Kardashian’s every move, and although she’s usually spotted looking effortlessly chic when going about her daily errands, there have also been moments when she’s been photographed looking exhausted while trying to handle her kids.
Trying to keep children occupied while traveling is not easy, and moms often have to get really creative with the games they play onboard. It seems that in this regard, Kim Kardashian is no different, and North entertains herself by pulling at her mama — who happens to look very relaxed in this photo!
Technology has changed our lives for the better in many ways, and perhaps one of the major pros is how easy it has become to document everything, including our children’s lives (because every mom will admit that kids grow up way too fast). Kim Kardashian has plenty of beautiful photos of herself and her children to show what her version of mom life is all about.
Want to know what it’s like to be Kim Kardashian and raising four young children? “It’s madness, but the best madness,” she told The New York Times ahead of her fourth child’s arrival. But, she still manages to find time for herself and enjoy an outing to the beach!
Kim Kardashian’s life has changed a lot since she became a mom, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. In 2015, she spoke about these changes with Glamor (via Us Weekly), saying, “I’m a completely different person. If it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life.”
Kim Kardashian is a mama to four children, and the public has already seen multiple photos of them — they’ve even been featured in prestigious magazines. But all the glitz and glamor is no longer what’s important to Kardashian, and in a Calvin Klein ad campaign shoot (via E! News) she admitted that at the end of the day, "Nothing matters but your family…”
But, unlike her mom, North West doesn’t seem to like having her photo taken...
It must be hard for a small child to have the paparazzi following her around, taking photos, and according to The Mirror, while on a visit to the Ice Cream Museum in Los Angeles, North reacted to photographers by yelling, "No pictures!"
We imagine that Kim Kardashian was always a pro at multitasking because she has such a busy and demanding life, but motherhood has made her even more efficient. In an interview with Glamour in 2018, she said, “Motherhood has helped me figure out how to consolidate and just get things done as quick as possible.”
Kim Kardashian has her hands full with four children, and ahead of her fourth child Psalm’s arrival, she appeared on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (via Us Weekly) and told the show’s host she was concerned about how “full” her house was. Although she added that she had heard “parents of four are the most enlightened and calm of all parents.”
Kim Kardashian comes from a big family, and she has five siblings, and now that she has become a mother herself, she’s got even more appreciation for her own mama, Kris Jenner.
“Motherhood is a gift and I know after watching my mom do it, it’s not easy, especially when trying to balance a career,” she said, Us Weekly reports. She also went on to add that she was “proud” of Jenner for all she's accomplished.
Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe choices have changed slightly since she became a mom, and she’s included a few more practical and casual pieces (because how can you run after a child when you can barely move in your skin-tight leather outfit, right?). Of all of her accomplishments, Kim Kardashian has also admitted that motherhood is her “biggest achievement,” which Us Weekly notes she tweeted about in 2015.
When you don’t have children, going about your daily errands can be fun, but when you have a small child who doesn’t want to be anywhere but at home playing with their toys, things get a little tricky. Many parents use technology to distract their children, and it seems that Kim Kardashian does the same.
Kim Kardashian loves fashion, and her wardrobe is enviable, but it seems she’s not the only one in the house who feels this way. She has admitted that her daughter, North West, loves clothes!
“She loves to pick out her clothes,” Kim previously told People magazine. She also shared that her daughter “loves to match mom.”
