During a Thursday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, reality star Kim Kardashian opened up about family life with husband, rap superstar Kanye West, and their two children — 3½-year-old daughter North and 16-month-old son Saint – and her horrifying Paris robbery.
“He’s my twin,” gushed the proud mama, 36, of her son. “He’s literally my twin personality. He’s so sweet. And he’s just such a good good boy. Just such a good person.”
Meanwhile, it sounds like her daughter takes after her husband.
“She’s really really smart, actually. She knows how to outsmart us — or she thinks she does. But she is Kanye’s twin,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said of her elder child. “Same personality, says the same wild things. Those two…”
Is there any sibling rivalry in their household?
“North just beats him up all day long… she’s just awful,” admitted the mom-of-two. “She is so jealous, and I thought it was a phase — it’s not going away. She just says boys aren’t allowed in her room. Like, when she’s gone at school, I’m like, ‘It’s time let’s go in her room! Do whatever you want — go crazy!’ ”
In fact, the reality star had to come up with a creative solution while breastfeeding her baby boy.
“When I was breastfeeding him, [North] was so jealous I had to get a little milk box and put it in the other bra with a straw so she would drink and he would drink,” she revealed. “She’s so jealous. It’s crazy. The things you do.”
It sounds like Kanye’s upcoming 40th birthday will be a blast.
“He does the most amazing, romantic, over-the-top, crazy, wild things that you would never even imagine for me. So the pressure is so on!,” she said. “I think I still want it to be intimate, maybe small. Not too crazy. Not too overwhelming just yet.”
The mom-of-two also talked about her horrifying Paris robbery.
“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me,” she said, holding back tears. “I don’t want to start crying, but…I’m such a different person I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.”
She added: “It was probably no secret, you see it on the show me being flashy, but I was definitely materialistic before. Not that there’s anything bad about having things and working hard to get those things — and I’m really proud of everyone that’s around me that’s successful. But I’m so happy that my kids get this me. And that this is who is raising my kids. Because I just don’t care about that stuff anymore, I really don’t.”
As for wearing jewelry again, she’s not sure what the future holds.
“I truly don’t know if I’ll ever feel comfortable,” she admitted. “I truly don’t know if I’ll ever wear real jewelry again. Just my whole life has changed as far as how I travel and just security. I never though I needed security staying outside of my door. Even though I had a lot of jewelry, and if you think about it — yeah, I should have had a security guard outside my door 24/7 when I’m traveling. Now, I have several for me to be able to sleep at night.”
She went on to recall her terror and inner-dialogue.
“That was it for me. 100 percent,” she shared. “I said a prayer, I know I’m going to heaven. I hope my kids are okay, my husband. It does happen really fast. It was a good 7 or 8 minutes of torture.”
She added: “When I look back and analyze it, it could have been way worse. I’m out, I’m home, I’m safe, I’m such a better person — it’s okay.”
