Kim Kardashian bemoaned “neglecting” husband Kanye West as she opened up about the difficulties of raising three children.
The 37-year-old welcomed daughter Chicago via surrogate in January, and is also mother to five-year-old North and two-year-old Saint with her rapper spouse. But raising a brood of three while running a business, filming a TV show and maintaining a happy marriage is anything but easy, as Kim explained on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” on Sunday night, September 30. “Having three kids, honestly, is crazy,” she said. “I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away.”
Khloe Kardashian, who shares daughter True with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, concurred that she knew what Kim meant.
“Sometimes men still want to be treated as like, the first baby,” she said. “I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.” Kim added that their lack of time together had led to her and Kanye having numerous “really stupid” fights. One was about Kim’s Instagram feed, while another was about the beauty maven not getting the right kind of plaster (band-aid) for her other half.
“He was like, ‘I’ve slaved around the world for you making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit and you let me go out wearing a Jesus band-aid.’ He said I should have a skin-coloured band-aid,” Kim recalled. “So I’m running around looking for different coloured band-aids when I’ve got three kids to look after? Just because I didn’t give birth to this baby doesn’t mean that my plate is not totally full.”
“When you have three kids, it’s kind of a wild household,” she continued. “I’m kind of annoyed because I wish he would understand I’m exhausted. Like, go get your own band-aid.”
