34 year old Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK), Kim Kardashian in an interview with Glamour magazine has opened up about her fertility issues and the struggle for baby number 2. She explained the reasons behind exposing those vulnerable moments on the show, KUWTK.
Kim said that she is beyond excited about her second child which she revealed in the mid-season finale of KUWTK TV show which aired on May 31, 2015.
Kim said “[Motherhood] really changes you. When I found out I was pregnant [with North West], I was going through an awful divorce, Kanye and I had just been dating for seven months — granted, we knew each other for a decade — and I was like, ‘I can’t do this. It’s not the right time.’ But then I figured, If I’m in my thirties and I’m not ready, I’ll never be ready. So it’s been the biggest lesson, and the biggest joy of my life.”
She admitted that at a point, she and her husband, Kanye West, had considered surrogacy and disclosed that she had thought about not sharing that part of her life on the show.
“I didn’t know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges],” Kim says. “But meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, ‘Why not share my story?’ It’s been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby — I could only have one more.”
She continues, “One was like, ‘You should get a surrogate.’ The other one was like, ‘Oh, no, you’ll be fine.’ Then I called my doctor, and he’s like, ‘You know what? I believe — we’ll get through it.'”
Kim confessed that it wasn’t always easy. “There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor’s office] hysterically crying. And other times when I was like, ‘Okay, everything’s looking good, it’s going to be this month!’ The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster.”
Kim told the magazine that she’s a “completely different person” since her interview with the magazine in 2012. “I don’t know if it’s growing up or being with Kanye, who’s more private, but I try and live my off time as privately as possible,” she says. “I used to enjoy the spotlight. If I had a day off from filming, I didn’t know what to do. Now I enjoy my family time so much, there is this sense of, if it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life.”
Kim revealed that been a mom has taught her to have patience, “North has taught me patience. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her. And nothing I wouldn’t do for my husband. She’s empowered us to want to be the best parents and the best spouses.”
Kim shared pictures of the shoot on her Instagram page.
