Kim Kardashian: If someone offered me business or fame, I’d take the business side.
In a new interview, Kim Kardashian West, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians star mom of three discusses choosing a surrogate, if she wants another child, what’s she’s learned from her marriage to Kanye West and why she would choose business over fame. Peep the excerpts below.
On issues with her pregnancy:
After giving birth, your placenta is supposed to come out. But mine was stuck. That’s what women usually die from in childbirth—you hemorrhage and bleed to death and they can’t stop it. To get it out—it’s so disgusting—the doctor had to stick his whole arm in me and scrape it off. It was the most painful thing.
On choosing a surrogate:
It was a feeling. You know when you can trust someone.
On selecting an embryo:
It’s a really tricky thing. What sex do you put in? I just said, ‘Which one is the healthiest? Pick the healthiest one,’ and that was a girl.
On being pregnant:
I hated being pregnant. But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody.
On if she want another child:
I dunno. My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way. [Four children would be her max.] I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids.
On what she’s learned being married to Kanye:
He’s taught me to have more of an opinion. I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We’re a good balance together.
On life as a Kardashian:
I was never one of those people who were handed everything from their parents,” “Even when I worked in my dad’s office, I was doing side eBay jobs on my lunch break. I lived a really great life growing up, but we were taught that if we wanted to keep that up, we had to work. At the end of the day, if someone offered me business or fame, I’d take the business side.
On how she handles fame:
At the beginning, I looked at people’s opinions. Now I’m content in my life, and I don’t care. The things that make me happy now are different. But I swear, you have to be born for this. It’s not for everyone. I know I can handle it. Having a solid and ever-expanding support system helps.
