How Kylie Jenner’s Daughter Changed Her Relationship With Kris Jenner

At just 21 years old, Kylie Jenner is at the top of her game. The youngest member of the KarJenner clan is the CEO and founder of Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie Skin, and soon-to-be Kylie Baby. Last year, Forbes named her the youngest billionaire in history and the reality star has continued to expand her empire. On top of all of that, Jenner is also a mother to her one-year-old daughter, Stormi. Though Jenner has admitted publicly that she adores being a mom, the arrival of her daughter has absolutely changed her relationship with her own mother, Kris Jenner.

“We took our baby on an adventure yesterday. Ugh, I love this little girl so much. Not only do I think she‘s the cutest thing in the world. she’s got the sweetest, smartest, most special little soul,” Kylie Jenner gushed in a recent Instagram caption. The sweet words were paired with photos and a video of Stormi and the 21-year-old’s boyfriend and baby daddy, Travis Scott.

Shifting her perspective

The Kylie Skin owner admits Stormi has completely changed the way she views the world and even has changed the way she feels about her own mother. Things she couldn’t understand or fully appreciate in the past now seem more clear to her and she has more appreciation for Kris Jenner.

“When I became a mother, my perspective on life completely changed, and so did how I look at my own mum and appreciate all the things that she’s done for me. Now I can understand the way that she feels about me, the way that she loves me, and how strong her love is for all her kids, because of how obsessed I am with Stormi,” Kylie Jenner admitted in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

An unbreakable bond

It seems that Kylie Jenner’s obsession with Stormi pales only in comparison to Kris Jenner’s obsession with Kylie Jenner. “I’m obsessed with you, Kylie,” Jenner announced to her youngest daughter during the same interview. Kris Jenner says she feels very fortunate that they’ve always had a super close relationship.

“We’ve always been very connected emotionally and spiritually and have this incredibly strong bond. But I think as we both get older, our relationship shifts a bit. And for me, I just want her to know that I’m always here to guide her and help her with whatever she needs, rather than it always being, you know, the way it used to be back in the day. Our relationship changes every few years,” the momager confessed.

But despite the closeness of the pair, Kylie Jenner admits that she sees Kris Jenner as a mom first and foremost. She’s quick to let everyone know that she gives Kris Jenner the respect that she deserves. “I respect my mother as my mother. I definitely don’t treat her as a sister or a best friend. I feel super-blessed that we’re so close and I can talk to her about anything like a sister, or like a best friend. But she definitely is a huge mother figure in my life,” the billionaire admitted.

Closer than ever

However we may feel about the Kardashian/Jenner family, it’s great that they do seem to be a very strong family unit. It’s wonderful to hear that Stormi has brought Kris Jenner and Kylie Jenner even closer. And with her adorable face, how could she not?
