Kim Kardashian: I’m “Beyond Excited” To Be Pregnant Again
Kim Kardashian says she’s “beyond excited” to be pregnant again.
As Gossip Cop reported, it was revealed at the very end of Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” mid-season finale that Kardashian is expecting her second child with Kanye West. Less than 12 hours later, Glamour released an except from its July cover story, in which Kardashian says, “We are so beyond excited.”
Kardashian, who is believed to be three months along, actually informed the magazine of her pregnancy two weeks after doing the original interview, which featured the mom of North West opening up about her fertility issues and her decision to share them on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” “Meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, Why not share my story?” she says. “It’s been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby — I could only have one more. One was like, ‘You should get a surrogate.’ The other one was like, ‘Oh, no, you’ll be fine.'”
She continues, “Then I called my doctor, and he’s like, ‘You know what? I believe we’ll get through it.’ There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor’s office] hysterically crying, and other times when I was like, ‘Okay, everything’s looking good — it’s going to be this month!’ The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster.”
Thankfully, Kardashian doesn’t have to worry about that waiting anymore, and she acknowledges that becoming a parent “really changes you.” She confesses to Glamour, “When I found out I was pregnant [with North], I was going through an awful divorce, Kanye and I had just been dating for seven months — granted, we knew each other for a decade — and I was like, ‘I can’t do this. It’s not the right time.’ But then I figured, If I’m in my thirties and I’m not ready, I’ll never be ready. So it’s been the biggest lesson, and the biggest joy of my life.”
“North has taught me patience. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her. And nothing I wouldn’t do for my husband. She’s empowered us to want to be the best parents and the best spouses,” Kardashian goes on to say, further sharing an sweet anecdote about her soon-to-be 2-year-old. “Today North put on these Manolo heels of mine and was walking perfectly around my closet. I sent Kanye a video of her. He was like, ‘Tell her to stop! She cannot grow up, she cannot wear your heels.'”
Kardashian admittedly has done a lot of growing up herself. “No one’s ever 100 percent proud of every decision that they’ve made, and that’s okay,” she reflects. “I think as long as you learn from your mistakes, and don’t make them over and over again, you’re on the right path.” Asked about being a role model, the reality star says, “I’m not trying to influence anyone else; I’m not saying, ‘Do what I do.’ I think it’s a little pretentious to say, ‘I’m a role model.'”
“I would never say that, and I don’t think of myself that way,” she continues, adding, “Are there things I’d take back? I don’t know if I’d take back the lessons that I’ve learned. Yeah, there are things that I’d be embarrassed about or wish didn’t happen, but if I didn’t have all those bad, crazy things, would I be who I am today? I don’t know.”
Kardashian also discusses her infamous nude Paper magazine shoot, saying that she “loves” it and has no regrets. The voluptuous brunette interestingly reveals that she didn’t even tell anyone in her circle that she had gone completely naked. “I had dinner with my mom and Kanye afterward. They were like, ‘How was your shoot?’ I was like, ‘Oh, good.’ I didn’t say anything,” she recalls.
Kardashian continues, “When the magazine came out, my mom called screaming, ‘You didn’t f*cking warn me!’ She went so crazy. I was like, ‘Relax, it’s my shoot, my body, my life.'” And what if North one day wants to do something similar? “I think I would [be okay] if it were done artsy and cool,” says Kardashian.
The controversial figure’s last Glamour cover was more than three years ago. Clearly, a lot has changed since then. “I’m a completely different person. I don’t know if it’s growing up or being with Kanye, who’s more private, but I try and live my off time as privately as possible,” says Kardashian. “I used to enjoy the spotlight. If I had a day off from filming, I didn’t know what to do. Now I enjoy my family time so much, there is this sense of, If it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life.”
