Becoming a mom is an exciting thing for any woman no matter her level of fame. But there is no doubt that having kids and being a mom is expensive. Raising a child is not cheap and sometimes moms can’t afford to give their kids everything they would want.
On the other hand, some moms can’t afford to treat themselves to some mommy pampering either. However, when you are a Kardashian or a Jenner there are a lot of normal mommy struggles that they don’t think twice about.
They say money can’t buy happiness but I’m sure the Kardashians would disagree in this regard. Money can remove a lot of stress in your life, and it can allow you to make your life easier. Let's not forget that money can also buy you amazing trips to places all over the world!
There is no doubt that we all look at the way the Kardashians live and get a little jealous. If children are lucky, they never have to worry about not having enough money for the simple things they want to do. And, all the Kardashian and Jenner children will clearly be very lucky in life because, here are 15 things they can afford to do as moms.
15 Spoil Their Kids With Toys
Some people might try to argue that baby products are necessities and although the Kardashians may buy a more expensive brand, they are still only doing what they have to do in order to properly prepare. When it comes to spoiling their children with toys, there really is no comparison.
Anyone who has watched the Kardashians would understand that Kourtney Kardashian’s backyard is basically a little kid’s dream playground. She has mini cars that they can drive around, and when Khloe and Kourtney would try to do their workouts, it was easy to see how many toys were truly there.
According to DailyMail.co.uk, Kourtney was even seen in Malibu spoiling Mason and Penelope with some toy shopping. They both had more than a few goodies and it just goes to show that most parents want to be able to spoil their children with gifts and toys.
Nothing compares to that look of excitement when a child finally gets a toy that they love or had been wanting. While the Kardashians are no different when it comes to wanting to make their kids happy, they definitely have the means to buy their kids whatever they want to play with.
14 Take Them On Trips Around The World
Traveling is an amazing gift that you can give to children. There is such a big and beautiful world out there to see and when you have the ability to experience different countries and different cultures at a young age, it really shapes the way you view things.
There are so many people who would love to take their kids to different places, but they simply don’t have the money or the means to afford that luxury. However, when it comes to the Kardashians and Jenners, they have taken their little ones to more places around the world than most of us will see in our entire lives.
According to EOnline,
the Kardashians and Jenners have taken some incredible vacations over the past 10 seasons of their show. From Greece, Thailand, and Las Vegas, all the way to Bora Bora, Armenia, and London, they have definitely experienced their fair share of the world.
We even saw their family trip to Cuba not that long ago and it looked like the kids were having a blast. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury to just plan an extravagant family vacation like the Kardashians do, but that’s the life their kids get to grow up knowing.
13 Pay For A Full-Time Nanny
When a woman first finds out she is pregnant, a lot of the thoughts that may run through her mind is about how she will be able to afford daycare. Or, how will she be able to keep working or keep going to school while they are staying up all night taking care of a newborn baby.
The thought of losing your independence and a lot of your freedom is an inevitable aspect of having a baby. As a Kardashian or Jenner mom, that isn’t necessarily the case.
When you can afford a full-time nanny, the normal day-to-day activities like picking your kids up from school, or getting up in the middle of the night to deal with feedings is not mandatory. When you have money like the Kardashians, you can pay for all the help and convenience in the world.
According to OK Magazine, the Kardashians almost never show their nannies on their reality show. It could be because they don’t want fans to think that they’re not involved parents. And, according to Kim’s old personal assistant Stephanie Shepard, Kim had two house assistants and two nannies, but this was back when it was just North and Saint, so maybe Kim and Kanye got a third nanny after baby Chicago was born.
12 Buy Every Baby Product Around
When you are a new mom, or when you first find out you are pregnant, all the expenses of that growing baby start to seriously add up. Most moms get to the point where they are debating between a wipe warmer or getting a second changing table. However, when it comes to the Kardashians and the Jenners they literally have nothing stopping them from buying everything they could possibly think of for their baby.
According to Mirror.com,
Kim Kardashian spent over half a million dollars on baby products and nursery decor as she prepared for the arrival of her third child.
As we know, baby Chicago was born via surrogacy and that process alone is not cheap. So on top of pay thousands and thousands of dollars for someone else to carry her baby, Kim dropped $550,000 on baby products and decor.
When the rumors began swirling about Kylie’s pregnancy, reports were claiming that she had already spent thousands of dollars online for Stormi. Buying new things for your future baby is such a fun and exciting part of pregnancy and motherhood, and it’s one of those things that the Kardashians, or Kylie Jenner don’t have to think twice about.
11 Travel In Style
Alright, let’s get real, who wouldn’t want to have their own private jets? The Kardashian Jenner family has decided that public transportation is just not really for them. Most of the time, they like to avoid the chaos of the airport and simply charter their own private plane. It is said that one of their private jets can be upwards of $15,000 per flight, but for them, that’s just chump change. Sometimes you can’t put a price on luxury or convenience. Anyone who has children knows that trying to deal with toddlers or babies in the airport and on a long plane ride is stressful for the mother.
That is why the Kardashians have luxurious seats, endless snacks, room to run around, and even their own beds on the private planes they travel on.
Flying wouldn’t even be an inconvenience if everyone could travel like this, but it’s just one more thing the Kardashians and Jenners can afford to do as moms.
According to TMZ, there is even a membership club for certain private jets and it is not unusual at all for celebrities to be on them or even just sleep the entire flight. But, the Kardashians are not tucking their kids into a cramped coach seat, their kids get full-on beds.
10 Send Their Kids To Private School
When you are a wealthy mom, all your money doesn’t just go to soiling your kids rotten with toys and fancy outings. Sometimes, that money is used for something that is actually really important: education. Unfortunately, education does not come with a cheap price tag. If you want the best teachers and the best schools, you usually need to put your kids into a fairly expensive private school.
Many parents now are struggling just to save enough money to put their kids through college. It’s not even an option for many families to pay thousands of dollars for elementary school or high school.
However, the Kardashians and Jenners have the luxury as moms to place their kids in whatever school their hearts desire. Thousands of dollars for a private school education sounds like a good investment for a lot of moms, and they are just lucky enough to be able to afford those options.
According to WebProNews.com, Kendall and Kylie Jenner attended a very elite private school for a while until they decided to be homeschooled. So, it would not be very surprising if the Kardashian Jenner clan felt like private schools were more necessary for their kids too.
9 Take A Mommy Vacation
While some people may frown on moms taking vacations from their children, it’s hard to deny a day of pampering when you are an exhausted mom. When you invest in yourself and your own mental, emotional, and physical well-being, you are in a better mindset to properly care for your children.
There is no shame in taking care of yourself, but some moms do think it is bad parenting to leave your kids for a weekend getaway. However,
despite the controversy surrounding a mommy vacation, there are still a lot of moms who would kill for a little break and some rejuvenation. Unfortunately, not every mom can afford that option.
In order to take a mommy vacation, you have to pay for your traveling expenses plus pay for someone to watch your kids while you are gone. That is just one of the many luxuries that the Kardashians and Jenners can do as moms. According to People.com, Kourtney Kardashian took a trip to Egypt not that long ago and spent some time with her French lover. She did not take her kids and used this as a time to really focus on herself. Now, before you all bash Kourtney for leaving her children, they were spending time with their dad Scott, so it’s not that big of a deal.
Kylie also recently took a little mommy vacation, but at least she brought baby Stormi with her.
8 Teach Their Kids About Business
Even if you don’t like the Kardashians or the Jenners, you can’t deny that they are all incredible business women. They have built up an entire empire worth billions, and are living a life of luxury because of it. Becoming successful reality stars that have stayed relevant for over a decade does not just happen. The Kardashians and their momager Kris Jenner have worked their butts off in order stay in the spotlight and remain relevant. They have created clothing lines, makeup, perfume and so much more. While we don’t know what all of their secrets to success are, there is no doubt that their kids will.
According to People.com, Khloe Kardashian wants her daughter True Thompson to inherit a lot of qualities, but the ones she really wants are “business savvy,” as well as Thompson’s “tech skills,” and good “spending habits.”
There is no doubt that any Kardashian Jenner baby could have these qualities naturally, but even if they don’t there is a good chance that their family members will teach them all the tricks of the trade. Not everyone has the insight or experience to get their children the knowledge that it would take to become a successful business person. That’s just one lucky thing that they can give their kids.
7 Challenge Tradition
It’s pretty clear that the Kardashians and Jenners don’t feel the need to succumb to societal norms or pressures. When you are as famous as they are, you forge your own path and do things however you want to do them. Not everyone has the ability or the strength to challenge tradition and make their own choices.
According to TheOdessy.com,
it’s easier for the Kardashians to do things differently because they know that they are trendsetters. They have so much influence on our culture and society which allows them to afford to live differently as mothers.
Almost every Kardashian has challenged tradition in their own way. For example, Kourtney Kardashian had three kids without ever getting married. I’m sure there was a lot of pressure to tie the knot, but she stuck to her guns and was able to make the right decision for her.
Kourtney was not the only one paving her own path. Khloe got married a month after meeting someone, and then she and Kylie both got pregnant and had babies without getting married first. When you are a celebrity mom like the Kardashians and Kylie, it makes it a lot easier to do things differently.
6 Pick Unique Names For Their Kids
There are tons of perks to being a famous celebrity and having a massive amount of disposable income, but one thing money can’t buy is the ability to give your kids the most unique and uncommon baby names. From Stormi, True, and Chicago all the way to North, there is no doubt that the Kardashian and Jenner clan have picked out some very odd baby names. When you are a celebrity it is completely accepted. You can name a child North West when her mom is Kim Kardashian. If some regular person thought of naming their kid that they would definitely not be accepted, but celebrity baby names are in a league of their own.
According to Time, Kim decided to name her third child Chicago West because her husband Kanye West was from Chicago. However, Kim has mentioned before that the theme they had going was one syllable baby names and it actually bothers her a little that her third baby doesn’t fit that same theme. But, apparently, the Kardashians are going to raise Chicago with the nickname of Chi, which will be pronounced “shy.” In this case, the name fits the one syllable style perfectly, but it’s still a totally different and unique name that only a Kardashian could really get away with.
5 Make Their Kids Work For What They Want In The Future
Often times the richest celebrities are the toughest on their children when it comes to instilling the values of hard work. Although the Kardashians and the Jenners have the ability to pay for their kids' endeavors for their entire life, they have often mentioned the value of hard work and how they want to instill that into their kids as well.
Even though their family has so much money, there is no doubt that they’ve all worked hard for it. Sure, they may have had some lucky breaks in life, but that doesn’t negate the effort they put into their careers. And, those who work the hardest to be successful are the ones who want others to work hard too. There is no way the Kardashians are going to want their kids to just be lazy and sail through life.
According to Brampton Guardian,
Kim Kardashian hopes that her work ethic is an inspiration to her children. The Kardashians are completely open to whatever careers their kids want to pursue, but they only hope that they are hard working.
“I hope that they find their own motivation - no matter what that is, no matter what they want to do in life,” Kim said. Sometimes hard work is not enough though. Sometimes the hardest college students still can’t pay their rent. However, the Kardashians and Jenners have the ability to let their kids’ hard work speak for itself. They have the luxury of supporting them through whatever they pursue.
4 Make Working Moms Proud
In society these days, it seems like moms get judged for everything. If you are a stay-at-home mom you will get judged for not having a career or side projects. On the flip side, if you are a working mom you get judged for prioritizing your career over your family and not spending enough time with your kids. It can be very difficult to find the correct balance.
But, it seems like the Kardashians manage it perfectly. They are definitely making working moms proud because people can see how strong a woman needs to be in order to run a business and be a mom.
The key to making it all work seems to be scheduling and planning correctly. According to InStyle, Kim said, “I’m really exhausted right now, honestly. Three kids is a game-changer. It’s like, my day is micromanaged to the minute. But, I think you really have to love what you do. I definitely had to take a step back after the baby arrived. If you want to have a life, have a good marriage, and be a good mom, you can’t really do everything, and you have to focus on what’s important to you.” Kim brings up a very good point. Part of the balancing act is prioritizing what needs to come first.
3 Keep Their Cool Amidst Their Kids’ Tantrums
When you have cameras following your every move, it is very easy for toddler or baby tantrums to be documented. Not every aspect of parenting is glamorous, even for the Kardashians. However, since the Kardashians and Jenners have based careers off of being luxurious and glamorous, they can afford to keep their cool while their kids freak out. Once you realize that every kid is going to have their moments, it’s easier for the Kardashian clan to not sweat the little things, or at least not show it, and simply keep themselves looking good.
According to InTouch,
Kim and Kanye have even consulted a family therapist to deal with North’s out of control tantrums. Therapy is not cheap and while most moms would just take away their kid's toys and use discipline tactics, the Kardashians have the money to speed up the process.
They can literally afford to stop their kids from throwing tantrums.
That is pretty crazy when you really think about it, but it just goes to show that being a Kardashian mom has massive perks. Apparently, North was acting out after Saint was born because the attention was off of her. While this is normal for most siblings, the Kardashians know how to get it taken care of.
2 Reclaim Their Pre-Pregnancy Shape Fast
The Kardashians and Jenners definitely have a way of getting their hot bodies back very fast after popping out a baby. But, they each seem to have different ways of going about it. For Khloe, she was working out a lot for her entire pregnancy. So, if she simply stuck to that routine after giving birth, it wouldn’t be that hard for her body to bounce back fast.
Kim went into hiding after giving birth and wouldn’t show her face until she got her hot body back. Now, most normal people in society can’t just hide out and exercise for a few months until they feel confident again, and then return to work and normal life. But, that is one of the things that the Kardashians can afford to do.
I don’t think anyone would put it past the Kardashians if they heard that they had work done in order to get the body they want. When Rob put Blac Chyna on blast a while back, he explained that she spent thousands on surgery to get her toned body back so quickly after having Dream.
The entire family hasn’t been too shy about getting work done and doing things that give them the confidence that they have. According to Hollywood Life, 20-year-old Kylie didn’t have to resort to those drastic measures to lose her baby weight. A close source says, “Yes she’s working out daily, and she is being super conscious of her diet, but she’s not taking anything to extremes. The fact that this is Kylie’s first baby, combined with her young age, and the incredible shape she was in prior to becoming pregnant, have all contributed to her body snapping back so fast.”
1 Have As Many Kids As They Want
Most people view kids and incredible gifts. And, many families actually want more kids than they have but simply can’t afford another. It’s really sad when you think about it because people often say money can’t buy happiness. There are so many couples who desperately want children or more children, but simply don’t have the income to raise another child. Luckily, the Kardashians and Jenners will never have this problem. They could literally have as many kids as they wanted and would not have to stress about money one bit. That is something that other moms could only dream about.
According to BusinessInsider.com,
Kim Kardashian is already considering a fourth child. And, Kourtney has said she was open to a fourth and even considered freezing her eggs because of it. Deciding to increase your family size is a big decision and one that will last your entire life.
The fact that money is not controlling any part of their decision on the matter is an incredible luxury that the Kardashians can afford as moms. I know so many people who would have had another kid in a second if it wasn’t for financial restrictions so I’m sure there are some people who are jealous of many of the things the Kardashians can afford to do as moms.
