Kourtney Kardashian’s Only ‘Ambition’ is to Be a Mom, Fans Say

Even if you don’t obsessively keep up with them, everyone knows who the extended Kardashian-Jenner family is, and most people have a strong opinion about them. Various reality shows have kept the influential family in the public for years, beginning with the first episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that aired on October 14, 2007.

Other shows that the Kardashians and Jenner family members have starred in include Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, among several others. Just by the titles of these reality programs, one of the most notable members of the family tree is Kourtney Kardashian. Despite the huge focus that is put on Kardashian, some fans of the family believe that Kourtney does not have the same drive as her sisters Kim and Khloé, and their mother Kris.

Who is Kourtney Kardashian? 

Born to parents Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, Kourtney is the oldest of the three Kardashian sisters. She also has a younger brother Robert Kardashian Jr. and is a half-sister to the Jenner sisters Kylie and Kendall. The Jenners became a part of the family and the show as a result of Kris Jenner’s marriage to Caitlyn Jenner, who are now divorced. Kourtney Kardashian and her family became famous following her younger sister Kim Kardashian West’s infamous sex tape with Ray J.

Interestingly, Kourtney Kardashian was actually on a reality television program prior to the release of both Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kim Kardashian West’s adult film, as she appeared in the short-lived series Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive. While the family is seen by some as entitled and possibly lazy, they are involved in many side projects and business ventures, not including their busy shooting schedules.

Kourtney Kardashian has been criticized for not having the same ambition as other members of her family, including her influential sisters. It was reported by Forbes that Kylie Jenner was the youngest billionaire of all-time, thanks to her cosmetic business and ability to monetize her massive social media following. All the members of the Kardashian-Jenner family have various side businesses and ventures that they have used their position as celebrities to help grow and promote.

For Kourtney Kardashian, this includes promotions for various clothing items, beauty products, supplements, and popular soft drink Coca-Cola. A majority of these promotions involve paid advertisements for the products on Kardashian’s extremely popular social media pages. Social media influencing is lucrative for those with a large enough following, and nearly every member of the Kardashian-Jenner family uses their social media platform to do so. 

What do fans say about Kourtney Kardashian’s goals 

Fans and defenders of the eldest Kardashian sister say that she definitely is different from other members of her family, but not because she is lazy or has a lack of ambition. Instead, they say that Kardashian is solely focused on being the best mother possible. Kardashian has three children, Mason, Penelope, and Reign all of whom she had with her on-again, off-again, romantic partner Scott Disick.

Kardashian and Disick intermittently dated from 2006 to 2015, and their relationship was a major part of the various reality shows that featured the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The two have had their ups and downs, many of which appear on the show, but are in a good place currently. Kardashian, her sisters, and mother even attended a recent celebration of Disick’s birthday, all with the goal of being the most supportive family possible. This level of dedication to her children, their father, and the rest of her family shows Kourtney Kardashian’s true priority. That priority is to be the best mother she can be, which most fans can agree is a very good goal.
