Kim Kardashian Opens Up About the Struggles of Being a Single Mom of 4

8 months ago

Every mom and dad can agree that parenting is no easy feat, even less so if you’re single. And it turns out that famous people, like businesswoman and socialite Kim Kardashian, can face the same struggles. Kardashian recently opened up about these challenges and confessed that she often ’cries herself to sleep’ while solo parenting.

Kim Kardashian became a single mom after her divorce from Kanye West.

Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from former-husband Kanye West, in 2021, and their separation was finalized a year later. The two of them share 4 children, daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint and Psalm. Although the ex-spouses agreed on joint custody, she shouldered most of the childcare, according to sources close to Kardashian.

She’s raising 4 kids independently and recently opened up about the challenges.

Recently, the famous mom opened up about what it’s like raising 4 kids as a single parent. During a podcast appearance, Kardashian revealed that solo parenting has been “the most challenging thing.” “There are nights I cry myself to sleep,” she confessed, adding, “You know, with all the moods and the personalities, and sometimes they’re fighting, and you know, there’s no one there. Like, it’s (up to) me to play good cop and bad cop.”

Fortunately, she always has her mom’s support to rely on.

Kim Kardashian lives her life in the constant spotlight. She has to juggle both her career as a media personality and businesswoman and being a single mom. So it’s understandable that she feels overwhelmed from time to time. Thankfully, her mom, Kris Jenner, is always there to support her with her warm presence.

Kardashian said that Jenner always makes people feel “really heard and welcomed,” and she always ensures the family can spend time together by organizing gatherings. That family spirit is something that Kim Kardashian would like to pass on to her kids as well.

Despite it all, Kardashian enjoys all the rewarding experiences of parenthood.

Regardless of the struggles that come with motherhood, Kardashian made sure to stress all the fulfillment she derives from parenting her children. “It is the most rewarding job in the entire world,” she proudly explained in the podcast. She said parenting is “the thing that has taught me the most about myself.”

Kim Kardashian recently revealed the strain her relationship with Kanye West put on her subsequent romance with Pete Davidson. She shared that Davidson “went through a lot” due to the controversies surrounding her ex-husband, highlighting the complexities of navigating personal relationships in the public eye.

In another instance, Kardashian demonstrated her resilience when she was flour-bombed by an activist at a 2012 event. Despite the unexpected incident, she dusted herself off and returned to the red carpet, showcasing her ability to handle sticky situations with grace.

Lastly, Kardashian’s early entry into matrimony is a notable aspect of her personal history. She married Damon Thomas at the age of 19, a decision that reflects her willingness to take significant steps in her personal life at a young age. Despite the marriage lasting only three years, it marked the beginning of Kardashian’s journey in navigating relationships and family life in the public eye.

Motherhood is no easy job, even for famous people. Ashley Graham is another celeb mom who bravely opened up about her struggles after becoming a parent. She shared her postpartum journey with her fans on her social media, garnering millions of supporters.
