Kim Kardashian and Beyonce might come from two different worlds, but there’s no denying that they’ve got lots in common. After all, they are two of the biggest names in the entertainment industry right now. There’s no one bigger than Beyonce when it comes to tearing up the charts. Kim Kardashian, meanwhile, is the Queen of reality television and social media. So it’s only natural to think that their two daughters, Blue Ivy and North West will one day follow in their footsteps, right? Well, it looks like that has happened already.
Simply put, Blue Ivy and North West are two of the biggest names when it comes to celebrity tots. Even though they are yet to share a playdate together, their worlds are very similar.
They wear outfits that are more expensive than your average car payment and have seen and done more than some adults do in a lifetime. They are rich, privileged and according to some experts, very influential. Yet, it seems as though Blue Ivy might have an edge over North West, especially when it comes to her influence in fashion, social media, and even the pre-school playground. Check out or 15 photos below to find out why.
15 Blue’s Mother Is The Queen
A lot can be said about Kim Kardashian, but when it comes to Beyonce, there’s no denying that she’s made her mark in the music world. While no one knows how long Kim Kardashian will be sticking around, Bey is here forever. And there are very few people in this world that would deny that. She is a true icon of her generation with millions of fans and followers from all over the world. A lot of critics would agree that Kim can’t even light a candle next to Queen Bey.
"Out of everything I've accomplished, my proudest moment, hands down, was when I gave birth to my daughter Blue," Beyonce told Garage magazine in 2016. And we have a feeling that Blue will definitely make her mother proud one day.
14 Bey And Blue Have A Strong Connection
Now, we are not going to pretend that Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are two people who don’t have nannies that work for them around the clock. Truth be told, they probably have a mini-army of staff helpers that are available for their every need. But Beyonce has made it no secret that she has a very strong connection with their daughter. And it’s one that she talks about all the time. Blue Ivy gives her a purpose in this world.
Bey loves to talk about how Blue has shaped her into the woman and mother that she is today. Motherhood changed her life for the better. Beyonce said back in 2013, “I just adore being a mother, hearing [Blue Ivy] say 'Mama' and call me when she needs something. It makes me feel like I have a real purpose here."
13 Blue Walks The Walk
Beyonce is raising her daughter not to just talk the talk. She wants her to walk the walk. In other words, she wants to raise a daughter that leads by example. She knows that actions speak louder than words. That’s why she’s trying to be the best role model she can be for her daughter. It might not be easy at times, but it’s a task that Bey has given herself. And so far, it seems to be working. Bey can do no wrong, people.
"I realized why I was born and more than anything, all of the things I want to pass onto my child and the best way of doing that is not by preaching or telling her but showing her by example," Beyonce said in an interview with CNN in 2012.
12 Blue Is Growing Up Spiritual
Beyonce is a very spiritual person. And unlike Kim Kardashian, she’s got standards. She doesn’t post completely naked photos of herself on social media for attention. We’d hate to say it, but here’s where Blue has another advantage over North West. Her mother isn’t an exhibitionist. Blue isn’t going to one day look back at her mother’s photos on Google and cringe with embarrassment. At least, we hope she won’t. North, on the other hand, doesn’t have a choice.
“My daughter introduced me to myself,” Beyonce told Oprah Winfrey. “You know, my mother and I are so close, and I always prayed that I would have that type of relationship with my daughter. And she’s still a baby, but the connection I had with her when I was giving birth was something that I’ve never felt before.”
11 Blue Is Growing Up With Respect For Her Body
Now, we don’t know what kind of person Kim Kardashian is behind closed doors. All we know is what she chooses to show us. And yes, we’ve seen a lot. Comparing Kim to Beyonce, there’s no denying that Bey has shown more respect for her body. She knows just how strong it is and what it’s capable of doing. Kim hasn’t really spoken much about her pregnancy and birth experience, other than she hated it.
"Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body,” she said in an interview with Vogue. “I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.”
10 Blue’s Daddy Changes Her Diapers
Now, this is something that Blue Ivy definitely has an advantage over North West. How many people can say that they’ve had the Queen and King of the music and rap world change their diaper? I didn’t think so. North’s father Kanye West won’t even come near a diaper, let alone change it. That speaks volumes about the kind of person and father he really is. It’s good to see that there are men out there like Jay-Z that take their jobs as fathers seriously. No diaper is too difficult to handle for him.
“Actually, [Jay-Z] is very good. We both [change diapers]. I love changing diapers, I love it. I love every moment of it, it’s so beautiful. I love it all,” Beyoncé told Anderson Cooper on the prime-time show "Anderson Live."
9 Blue’s Mother Is More Maternal
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Beyonce seems to have a much more spiritual connection to pregnancy and motherhood. Kim, meanwhile, has been ridiculed for wearing heels that make her bloated toes look like sausage rolls. It’s no wonder that North always looks like she would rather be anywhere but with the Kardashian clan. She might be a toddler, but she knows what’s up.
Beyonce has said in the past, “I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby… But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain… We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”
8 Blue Ivy Is Not In The Spotlight
By now, it’s pretty obvious that Blue Ivy and North West might have a lot of similarities but they definitely differ when it comes to how their mothers handle their public images. We know that Kim always makes sure that no one or nothing is in the way with North when the paparazzi are nearby. But with Blue Ivy, it’s a different situation. She’s almost never, ever spotted by the paps, and that’s for a good reason. It’s because Beyonce doesn’t allow it.
“I am very protective. I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life…in the back of my mind, she’s my priority. And life is completely different now. I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that’s to be her mother.”
7 Is Kim Disingenuous?
When it comes to Kim Kardashian, you can’t help but wonder if she is really being honest and sincere, especially when it comes to the things that she says about motherhood. For a lot of her critics, her words seem very scripted. A lot of critics and fans would say that you don’t get that same feeling with Beyonce. That’s because she often speaks from the heart, especially when it comes to her thoughts on motherhood. With Kim, it seems less authentic. Also, her interactions with her daughter seem to be less natural, too, according to some observers.
“I love being a mom! It’s the most rewarding feeling! I really love every phase!” Kim told a parenting blog. “Just the way my daughter laughs with me, all of the small things in life you appreciate!”
6 Will North Be Embarrassed Of Her Mom?
Kim Kardashian claims that she doesn’t pay much attention or give too much energy to the people who often criticize her. But a lot of those same people can’t help but wonder what North West will think when she looks back at all of the things her mother has done. Will she feel embarrassed and humiliated, too?
Kim has said in the past, “You don’t have time for it and sometimes I see things and I’m like, ‘I’m not gonna let that slide. This person was wrong.’ Or whatever I’m feeling I speak my mind a little bit more after I’ve had our daughter. I don’t know if it’s a combination of being married to someone that’s super honest and open and says whatever he wants whenever he wants to or just not having time really for anything else but the truth and just being real.”
5 Does Kim Even Have Time For North West?
Sure, Beyonce is a very busy person, but it seems like Kim likes to juggle a lot of different projects at the same time, too. But one can only wonder how she can manage everything and find the time for her three kids, too. Plus, fans are yet to see Kim spend any one-on-one time with North. Does she even have the time for her?
“It is an adjustment trying to balance a career and motherhood for sure, but the key is to prioritize,” Kim explained on how she balances her career with motherhood. “You become more selective and work on projects that are so meaningful because you want every other waking moment spent with your family. You have to remember though to make time for yourself. If you feel good, you will be happy in your career and family life and everyone is happy!”
4 But She Always Makes Time For Herself…..
We all know that Kim gets often criticized and slammed for being a bad mom. Just recently the Internet slapped her where it hurts when she posted a photo of North taking a topless pic of her. A lot of people have called Kim selfish, tone-deaf, and a bad role model for her kids. But, of course, Kim doesn’t see it this same way.
Speaking about how she makes time for herself, Kim has said, “It’s that simple: to prioritize. And make some time for yourself . . . I make sure I do take time for myself; I have lunches with my girlfriends, and do things that are important. I get up and work out every morning. I know that I don’t feel as good as I could feel if I don’t—and you want to feel your best so you can give to everyone else.”
3 North’s Temper Tantrums
Kim says that she’s a very strict mother, but we have a hard time believing it. That’s because we’ve often seen North West have epic temper tantrums in public. In comparison, you never see Blue Ivy act the same way. Blue knows the world is watching her and that’s why she’s on her best behavior. With North, it’s a different story. She’s always crying for one reason or another. And oftentimes, it’s not pretty and pretty embarrassing, too.
“I am a strict mother,” Kim said in an interview a few years back. “I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib. And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But . . . I’m not crazy strict.”
2 North’s Future Job
According to Kim Kardashian, she wants to put her children to work in the future. She says that she will teach them how to earn their keep. Of course, we know that it won’t be the same situation for Blue Ivy and her siblings. Members of the royal family don’t apply for jobs at Starbucks, now do they? I didn’t think so. Blue is already a mini-businesswoman in the making, thanks to her parents.
On her children working for what they want, Kim said, “I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North’s] first job is gonna be. And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is.’ She will have to work for what she wants.”
1 Kim’s Priorities
Again, we know that Kim is a very busy person. But a lot of people think that she still doesn’t take motherhood as seriously as some other celebrity moms, do. That’s because she is always searching for the spotlight. She wants people to take notice of her, wherever she is and wherever she goes. That’s not the case with Bey. She won’t drop her kids at the babysitter to hang out with her girl squad on a random Saturday. At least, not in public.
Kim said, “Sometimes I see a lot of my friends just get taken over by their kids and their life, and that’s great, but if you don’t spend a little bit of time—whether it’s two hours a day, or one day a week to and visit with your friends. It really helps a lot.”
