Kim Kardashian Goes to an Unexpected Sister for Parenting Advice

Kim Kardashian is a very busy woman. Between her family’s ultra-popular reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, her pursuit of a law career, her multiple successful businesses, and her social media commitments, every minute of Kardashian’s day-to-day life is taken up with tasks and deadlines.

Perhaps her most important job is the one that she shares with her husband, Kanye West — that of a parent to their large brood of children. While it might seem as though Kardashian has the parenting gig on lockdown, she revealed that she turns to one of her sisters for parenting advice on a regular basis.

Kardashian first started dating West in 2012, and the two didn’t wait long to start their family. They welcomed their first child, daughter North West in June 2013, followed by son Saint in December 2015. Kardashian was very open about the fact that she had difficult pregnancies, with doctors cautioning her against getting pregnant again, in order to better protect her health.

Still, Kardashian and West wanted a large family, so they turned to the world of surrogacy to help them achieve their dream. Kardashian hired a gestational surrogate to carry their next child, daughter Chicago, who was born in January 2018.

Kardashian and West were widely praised for how open and honest they were about the surrogacy process, even discussing it on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In May 2019, the family welcomed their fourth child, son Psalm, who was also born via gestational surrogate.

While rumors persist that Kardashian and West might eventually have more children, for now, they seem content with four. 

Kim Kardashian gets parenting advice from Kylie Jenner

Kardashian isn’t shy about sharing pictures and videos of her children to social media, and all four of them have been featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. While she has admitted that her house is “chaos” with four children running around, she also seems to have a much more relaxed parenting style and doesn’t usually share the more stressful moments of her motherhood journey. 

In 2018, before the birth of baby Psalm, Kardashian opened up about how she isn’t above taking parenting advice from her siblings. While all of her siblings, except for Kendall Jenner, have children, Kardashian’s source for parenting advice is definitely a surprising one.

In her interview, Kardashian revealed that Kylie Jenner has all the inside info about “new gadgets and the new baby stuff” and that she’s been Kardashian’s go-to for parenting advice. Many fans were surprised by this, especially considering that Jenner is a very young mom, and Kim Kardashian’s older sister, Kourtney Kardashian, has many more years of parenting experience and three children of her own.

In addition, Kim Kardashian has a lot more children than Jenner, so it is slightly counterintuitive that she is open to taking advice from a relatively new mom.

Although Kardashian might turn to Jenner for the scoop about expensive baby gadgets, she stated in the same interview that she relates to Khloe Kardashian much more in terms of parenting style.

Kim Kardashian stated: “Khloe and I probably have the most similar parenting style and I will usually go to one of my best friends Larsa Pippen because she has four kids for mom advice.”

Khloe Kardashian has one daughter, True, that she shares with her ex, Tristan Thompson. The two sisters have always been close, but there’s no doubt that becoming mothers has brought them even closer together.
