Social distancing and quarantining have been extremely challenging for many people. Many people’s lives across the globe have been halted drastically, and there seems to be no indication that we will go back to normal anytime soon. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian West have used their massive followings to speak about the importance of following state and government guidelines while getting candid about their own struggles amid quarantine.

From her social media posts and her various virtual appears on day-time shows and late-night shows, the KKW Beauty mogul has gotten real about what it means to be at home 24/7 with her husband, Kanye West and four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Though the Skims founder is known for her endless patience with her babies, it appears that quarantine has been very challenging for her and on her marriage.

Kim Kardashian West has struggled to maintain her household amid quarantine

Like many of us, with and without children, getting accustomed to a new routine has been more than challenging for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. Kardashian West is used to being out and about with her family and friends. She’s also used to extensive travel, endless meetings, and studying for the California State Bar Exam. Now, she is being confined to her home every single day, and it hasn’t been easy.

“Being at home with four kids… if I ever thought for a minute that I wanted another one… that is out the door,” she told The View host Whoopi Goldberg via video chat. “It’s really tough. Really tough. “I’ve been doing laundry and cooking,” she said. “And being their teacher too. I have newfound respect for teachers. They deserve so much. It’s been tough juggling it all — you really have to put yourself on the back burner and just focus on the kids.”

Though the KKW Fragrance mogul appreciates this quality time, she has also said she would never have another child.

Kim Kardashian West is doing the brunt of the parenting and housework right now

Kardashian West has clearly been doing most of the housework and childrearing while trying to film the Season 18 KUWTK finale and maintain her sanity. “I’m hiding in the guest room, you guys,” she revealed during an impromptu makeup tutorial she posted on Instagram. “I’m hiding in the guest room because my kids will not leave me alone.”

It appears that Kardashian West’s hubby has taken the opportunity to literally hide from the family, though he did give his wife a break last week. “It’s a huge chaos with all the kids at home,” an insider told People. “Kanye escapes to his office for a work break. He also let Kim have a break last week when he took some of the kids to Wyoming. They have been taking turns caring for the kids.”

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have been constantly arguing

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that the mini escape to Wyoming was enough for the Kardashian/West household. “Kim and Kanye have been arguing a lot during the quarantine,” a source told US Weekly. “Kanye is really getting on Kim’s nerves.  He’s been focused on creating lately, which is making Kim feel like all the parenting duties are falling on her. Kim finds it frustrating that [Kanye] doesn’t ask her how he can help with the kids.” 

We can definitely see why Kardashian West would feel frustrated. Hopefully, these two can work things out.
