The KUWTK star gets frank about everything from her relationship with Kanye to if she’ll have more kids in the future.
In the newest issue of Elle, Kim Kardashian opened up about her home life and more. Here’s what we learned:
She can’t stand clutter.
“My life is chaotic, so my home is super simple. Everything has to be clean…If things aren’t organized, I flip out…My kids’ clothes have their name ironed into them on little labels. I know where everything is, and I. Do. Not. Lose. Things.”
It takes A LOT to make her look like ~Kim Kardashian.~
She gets her hair and makeup professionally done for an hour everyday, manis and pedis every week and a half, and her eyebrows done every three weeks. Plus, she gets “teeth whitening, spray tans, laser hair removal, various stomach and thigh-tightening laser [procedures], and takes daily skin and hair vitamins.”
She lives in a “label-less house.”
Her employees wear all black and even water bottles have their labels peeled off, though it's probably because they can't feature ads on their show.
Her childbirth experience was “traumatic.”
“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.”
She wasn’t super strict with her gestational carrier.
“I straight-up told her, ‘Look, I ate doughnuts every single day. If you want doughnuts and ice cream, go for it. Do whatever you feel. I’m not going to be picky like that. That’s just ridiculous.’”
If someone offered her business or fame, she’d “take the business side.”
“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.”
She’s not sure if she’ll have more children, but four would be her limit.
“My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way. I don’t think I could handle more than [four]. 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.”
Her three kids have the sweetest nicknames.
North is called Northy-Lou, Saint is called Sainty-Boo, and Chicago is called Chi.
She and Kanye are “a good balance.”
“He’s taught me to have more of an opinion. I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious.”
