Kim Kardashian has a lot to juggle in both her personal and professional life. Besides her many beauty and fashion endeavors, as well as a ubiquitous reality show, the 37-year old has admitted that hubby Kanye West hasn’t taken too easy to the transitional period of her being a mother of three.
On the recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim spoke openly about how the addition of more kids has affected Kanye. The Hollywood power couple shares two daughters (North, 5, and Chicago, 8 months) and a two-year-old son, Saint.
“Having three kids, honestly, is crazy,” she said. “I remember it was really hard for North when Saint was born, so I kind of put everything into North to make her feel extra special. And now, with Chicago, I’m trying to work even [harder] to make sure North and Saint feel like they have enough time with me and they feel super loved and that no one is going to take their place.”
Some of the quarrels that Kim has got into with-the Touch the Sky MC has been over not posting the pictures on Instagram with the co-sign of her spouse and not getting him the right Band-Aid.
“He was like, ‘I’ve slaved around the world for you making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit and you let me go out wearing a Jesus Band-Aid.’ He said I should have a skin-colored Band-Aid. So I’m running around looking for different colored band-aids when I’ve got three kids to look after? … Just because I didn’t give birth to this baby doesn’t mean that my plate is not totally full.”
She continued the conservation to Khloé saying, “When you have three kids, it’s kind of a wild household.” “I’m kind of annoyed because I wish he would understand I’m exhausted. Like, go get your own Band-Aid.” However, the real issue was that Kanye believed that if his son needs a certain type of Band-Aid that Kim would get it in a heartbeat.
“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” she said.
Khloé responded to this revelation saying, “Sometimes men still want to be treated as the first baby… I know Kim is so overwhelmed, and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day, and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”
Kim took her sister’s advice and ran with it. She surprised her husband for Valentine’s Day with a heart-shaped box of bandaids and sexy lingerie.
“After my conversation with Khloé, the one thing that I realized is I make such a priority for all the kids, and I go above and beyond for them, but in that, I’m fully neglecting my husband,” Kim said. So, I just want to give Kanye the attention and love that he needs. … When you have so many kids, it’s important to still make your relationship a top priority.”
“Kanye is so thoughtful, and even when he’s in crazy work mode he always takes the time to check in on me, see what’s going on,” she added. “And I think when I get in super busy mode, I need to just slow down and be a bit more thoughtful. I think I’ve definitely gotten better with that after this.”
Who comes first: the kids or the husband?
