What Kim Kardashian Had to Give Up to Raise Her Family

Over the years,  many people have joked that Kim Kardashian is famous for pretty much nothing. And although her family may have played a part in her fame, there is no denying that she has worked very hard to get where she is today. In addition to filming her family’s reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she is also busy with her beauty line and in the process of trying to get her law degree.

So, how does Kardashian still manage to spend time with her husband and four kids? She recently talked about her busy life and said that there are a few things that she has had to give up in order to still make time for her family.

How many kids does Kim Kardashian have?

Kardashian started dating Kanye West in 2012. The two had known each other for a few years, but it wasn’t until she had broken things off with her ex-husband, Kris Humphries, that she started to look at West as anything more than a friend. West and Kardashian’s first date ended up lasting an entire week. After that, Kardashian knew that she was going to spend the rest of her life with the world-renowned rapper.

The dynamic duo shares four kids together. Their oldest daughter, North, is 6 years old. They also have a 3-year-old son named Saint, a one-year-old daughter named Chicago, and the newest addition to their family, baby Psalm, who is only three months old.

In a recent interview for Vogue Arabia, Kardashian revealed she had always wanted four kids. Because she had such rough pregnancies with her first two children, she was afraid that she would not be able to have four kids. But after having their son, Saint, Kardashian and West had decided to choose a surrogate in order to safely add to their family.

Is Kim Kardashian currently going to school?

One day, in 2017, Kardashian was browsing her Twitter feed when she came across a story about a woman who was in her 60s and sentenced to life in prison for a drug violation. Kardashian instantly thought that it was an unfair punishment for someone who did not commit a violent crime. Soon after that, Kardashian was having a meeting with the President of the United States in order to get the lady, Alice Johnson, out of prison.

Eventually, President Trump did grant clemency to Johnson and led Kardashian to want to pursue a whole new dream: becoming a lawyer.

Kardashian is not enrolled in any law school. However, California allows its lawyers to practice law after completing an apprenticeship program. She still has to study the law and pass the bar exam to get her license. But as long as she finishes her apprenticeship and passes all of the tests that she is required to, she will become a real-life lawyer. 

What did Kim Kardashian have to give up in order to raise her family?

During Kardashian’s Vogue interview, West, her interviewer, asked her if there was anything that she had to give up in order to ensure that she was able to spend enough time on her career and with her family.

Kardashian replied by saying: “This year I had to give up a lot – like my friends and going out. Unless we work together or have babies together that are the same age or I’ve known you my whole life, it’s really hard to stay in touch and keep up. I’ve had to change my number. I need to stay focused – I have to figure out law school, I have to launch my shapewear brand and continue to oversee all aspects of my beauty and fragrance business. I’ve had to cut out all of the things that took time away or did not involve God, our family, my business, justice reform work, or law school.”

So, it seems as if Kardashian does not have much of a social life anymore. But with all of the things that she has going on in her life, it seems like she has made the right choice and seems to has her priorities in order.
