Kim Kardashian is a business mogul, lawyer-in-training and reality TV star – but says her hardest and most rewarding job is being a mother.
The Skims founder and mom of four spoke candidly about the parenting challenges she faces in a clip from her upcoming appearance on the “On Purpose with Jay Shetty” podcast.
“Everyone says the days are long and the years are short, and that couldn’t be a truer statement,” Kardashian said. “Especially when they’re babies and you feed them and there’s madness.”
“It’s the best chaos though,” she added.
Kardashian shares four children — North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm — with ex-husband Kanye “Ye” West.
They tied the knot in 2014, in a lavish European ceremony, before Kardashian filed for divorce in 2021. The divorce was finalized in 2022.
“There are nights I cry myself to sleep,” Kardashian admitted in the clip, adding that playing “good cop and bad cop” is another challenge she faces while working to “be a little tougher. “when his children fight.
She said her early morning workouts, which are frequently documented on her social media accounts, prepare her for the “craziness” of the day, but there are nights when she goes “hour by hour to see if we are going to survive. ”
There are lessons to be learned amid the chaos according to Kardashian, who also said parenthood has taught her more about herself than she could have imagined.
“You’re never prepared, but you’ll find out,” she said. “It will make you so proud of yourself that you got it and got through the day.”
Still, Kardashian said she wouldn’t trade being a mother for anything. “It’s the hardest and most rewarding job on this planet,” she said.
