Not many babies can claim to be fully-fledged celebrities the day they were born. With Kylie Jenner's baby announcement receiving a record-breaking 16 million Instagram likes though, it's all too much of a reality. Stormi Webster, True Thompson, and Chicago West are set to become the most famous kids in Hollywood.
Angelina Jolie let her kids eat bugs. Mila Kunis has stated that she never wants her kids to "know ketchup soup for dinner." With Forbes' news that Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million (while Kim K sits at $350 million), ketchup soup is unlikely to be something that these mommies will ever face as a challenge.
There's something utterly fascinating about how celebrities raise their kids. This goes way past the Gucci bibs and Versace changing mats. Celeb moms seem to go to extremes when it comes to raising their kids. Either it's gluten-free or organic foods. Or super-strict (or super-lax) screen time, nap schedules, or even not allowing their children outside.
The Kardashian-Jenners have given the world a pretty easy sneak peek into their parenting. It's called Keeping Up With The Kardashians. While the show sees North West and Penelope Disick running around in the cutest BFF moments ever, the show doesn't reveal everything.
It's time to look at how the Kardashian-Jenners raise their kids. Here are 20 parenting methods we would only ever see from the world's most famous family.
20 SIGNING A $10 MILLION NDA BEFORE YOU SPEAK TO THESE MUNCHKINS
It's no secret that the KarJenners are big on the privacy. Despite a reality show that seems to share every moment of their lives, getting up close and personal with the kids is a completely different story. That includes Stormi, Chicago, and True (pictured here).
A person caught selling stories or pics of Stormi can face up to $10 million in legal fees. "If they don't sign the agreement, they can't see her."
OK! reported that Kylie is following in big sis, Kim's footsteps when it comes to Non-Disclosure Agreements. "Sworn to secrecy" is how The Daily Mail reports the nanny situation being in the Kardashian household.
19 "CAN YOU SAY IT? KYLIE... COSMETICS" REPLY: "DADA" AND A GIGGLE
From someone who has watched it, take it from us– Kylie's video attempt to teach baby Stormi how to say "Kylie Cosmetics" was beyond adorable. It was also genius marketing. Kylie has made a staggering $900 million from her empire (enough to land her on the cover of Forbes).
"Kylie...Cosmetics. Kylie...Cosmetics," this new mom says to a little Stormi playing around with some products from the range. Stormi looks up with her adorable gaze, starts babbling, and eventually falls back on the one word she seems to know– "Dada." Kylie bursts out laughing. Kylie captioned the video: "Trying to teach her some new words."
18 NO GLUTEN, NO DAIRY, NO MICROWAVES
Kylie Jenner recently decided to "try this whole vegan thing" following her sister, Kourtney's natural and organic way of life. Kourtney is big on staying away from gluten and dairy. A "positive change in behavior" is what Kourt personally recorded being the result of switching her foods away from gluten and dairy.
Kourtney has shared what she feeds her kids via her website. Organic coconut milk and spinach shakes feature on her recommended dishes.
Meanwhile, Kim has dished that she chooses organic cheddar bunnies instead of goldfish crackers for North. Kourt has also spoken out against microwaves and plastic containers.
17 BREAD ISN'T BREAD, IT'S "EZEKIEL BREAD"
"There definitely cannot be any extra flavor in breads." Those were Khloe's words when she spoke to Look about Kourtney's health-conscious mentality. Kourt had even told Khloe that she was switching from regular bread to Ezekiel bread. (If you're wondering what that even is, it's a ton of whole grains and legumes added in)
Most of us grew up on white, wheat, or maybe multiseed bread. While Kourt has admitted that it's fine for the kids to have treats like churros at Disneyland, the overall picture is super health-conscious. Walmart-bought store bread isn't something Mason, Reign, or Penelope are ever likely to eat.
16 MAKEUP ISN'T JUST MAKEUP, IT'S A "BRIBE"
Now that North West gives her own interviews, we know that she "sometimes keeps makeup in [her] purse" for when she goes to church. Kids aren't always in the mood for what you want them to do. Kim seems to have found a solution.
"Sometimes, I have to bribe her to go to school and be like: Do you want me to put on some makeup?" Kim told Us Weekly. She admitted that "bribing" Northie can work. Ultimately though, Kim added that "she's such a girly girl. She loves all my products." Kim started out as a reality queen. With KKW Beauty though, she can make $5 million in 5 minutes, The Sun reports.
15 ELECTRONIC GATES AND METAL DETECTORS, EVEN KYLIE'S OWN SECURITY "WOULDN'T LET HER IN"
Security is a giant deal for this family. Following Kim's harrowing 2016 Paris robbery, security was tightened across the board. Kim, Kylie, Kourtney, and Khloe are working hard to keep their kids safe. The Daily Mail reports both metal detectors and electronic gates in Kylie's home.
"So I just pulled up to my gate and I was like: Hey, it's Kylie Jenner." Kylie had to explain that she is "THE Kylie Jenner."
Yes, Kylie's own security team hesitated before letting her through her own gates, OK! reports. Kylie shared the confusing moment via Snapchat. Prepare for an airport scenario if you want to see Stormi.
14 MEDICAL MASKS NEAR STORMI (BUT PHONES MUST BE PUT AWAY)
Kylie is slowly taking Stormi out of the Hidden Hills mansion she calls home, but it's been reported that visiting Stormi comes with a lot of precautions. "Kylie got boxes of medical masks for people to wear around Stormi because she doesn't want her exposed to any germs," Hollywood Life reported.
Alongside medical masks, Kylie puts her foot down when it comes to cell phone usage around Stormi. "To have somebody in her own home trying to snap pictures they shouldn't be snapping is really, really stressful," Kris Jenner said on KUWTK. She added: "We have to be on alert at all times."
13 $118,000 BABY REGISTRIES AND $600 VERSACE DIAPER BAGS
You only have to take one look at the pictures of Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, or Kylie's kids to see that luxury is a given. Kylie's first pic with Stormi showed a Gucci sling worth $820, Business Insider reports. For Khloe's baby registry, Vogue listed the value as being $118,000 worth of gifts.
The designer gear we've seen these babies in? A $120 Gucci bib with Khloe's baby True (who also gets $600 Versace diaper bags and Versace changing mats). True also has a $10,000 Lucite crib, The Daily Mail reports. Stormi has been seen in baby Burberry. Of course, there's also all that custom Yeezy wear.
12 "REALITY TV FOLLOWS OUR LIVES" (AND THEY GET TIME OFF SCHOOL FOR IT)
Being on a reality show can seem glamorous, but it's one of the most tiring jobs around (not to mention one of the most invasive). In 2014, Kim wanted to have North feature on KUWTK, but Kanye disagreed. Kourtney had the cameras in the delivery room during her births. So did Khloe.
"I think reality TV is just a part of our life and it follows our life," Scott has said. "It's just second nature at this point." Kourt and Scott's kids are allowed time off school for filming, but they aren't exactly off the job. Even Chicago and Stormi have had their KUWTK debut.
11 RENTING OUT THE ENTIRE PUMPKIN PATCH (BUT KYLIE WAITS 10 MONTHS TO VISIT THE PARK)
Halloween is definitely all about the kids. Both Kim and Kylie have been spotted taking their little ones to the pumpkin patch. In 2018, Kylie took to Instagram to share Stormi's first pumpkin patch outing. Travis Scott joined them for a #FamilyMoment, but fans noticed that they seemed to have the entire place to themselves.
"She's being very careful about keeping the baby healthy and indoors," Us Weekly reported about Kylie.
"Stormi's first trip to the park" was Kylie's November 30, 2018 post. Stormi was playing with her mommy on the grass. The wide open air seemed to be doing Stormi some good, but she did wait 10 months to go there.
10 $50,000 DESIGNER BAGS "TO PAINT" (BUT NO PLAYING NEAR WHITE FURNITURE)
Only a Kardashian would do this. "Me and my bae out today. Wearing my favorite bag painted by little North" was Kim's 2014 caption to a pic of herself holding a $50,000 Hermès bag. Yes, Kim had gifted North a designer purse just to paint.
Things turn strict when it comes to where that paint is splattered, though. Calling her home decor style "minimalist and modern," Kim has outlined how the kids can only play in the playroom. That's where "all the markets, paints, and colors are...By the time they're done there, they have no desire to take a pen to our white furniture, lol."
9 BABY NAMES MUST BE "SHORT AND EASY TO SPELL"
Anyone with their eye on unusual baby names will have noticed that the KarJenners have definitely gone down that route. Kim and Kanye are parents to North, Saint, and Chicago. Khloe named her baby girl True. Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna chose Dream, while Kylie and Travis Scott chose Stormi.
When Khloe appeared on The Ellen Show, she outlined how this family goes about choosing names. "Short, easy-to-spell, one syllable– that kind of vibe," Khloe said. While Chicago is more than one syllable, it's still easy to say. None of the Kardashian kids have middle names, either. If you're wondering about Stormi Webster, Webster is Travis Scott's real last name.
8 PREGNANCY WARDROBES THAT ARE HEAD-TO-TOE YEEZY
The Kardashians and the Jenners are getting close to being 100% Yeezy when it comes to their wardrobes. If it isn't Kylie and Kendall promoting the latest #YeezyDrop, it's Kim wearing full Yeezy gear on KUWTK. While we didn't get to see Kylie's pregnancy wardrobe, we saw plenty from Khloe and Kim.
Here is Khloe in a 2018 pregnancy pic (where True was not far off entering the world). Yeezy lace-up boots, dresses, tanks, and pants were all part of Khlo's pregnancy wardrobe. Kim's first pregnancy was more about the Versace, but by her 2015 pregnancy with Saint, it was all aboard the Yeezy bandwagon.
7 A VIP ROOM IN EVERY CONCERT VENUE
The final months of 2018 showed us some of the cutest videos of Stormi we've ever seen. As Travis Scott took on his Astroworld tour, he made sure that Stormi always has a place backstage. A VIP space, in fact.
"We don't let her out because of how loud it is back there," Kylie said. Stormi's rooms have custom-made signs, plus fake pepper toys and mats.
The Metro covered Kylie's Snapchat tour of Stormi's backstage rooms. She gets treats like Fritos, plus a screen where she can watch her daddy perform live. Watching her bounce up and down and laugh, she clearly seems to be enjoying it!
6 A PRIVATE JET LIFESTYLE BEFORE YOU CAN WALK
When this family travels, they do it in style. Kylie Jenner recently shared her brand-new, custom Rolls Royce– it's icy-blue and Kylie loves it. While winters are for snuggling up in front of the fireplace, it's business as usual for Kylie, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney.
Private jet is how the Kardashian-Jenners travel. This pic showed baby Stormi getting to grips with the interiors of one. We've also seen Kim and Kanye post family pics of themselves on a private plane, plus there's that Kourtney snap of her enjoying some in-flight dining with the kids. #Luxury all the way (even if they're too young to know it).
5 CUSTOM DESIGNER JACKETS AND MINI LOUIS VUITTON
North West running around in that tutu will forever be a #Favorite pic. While fans loved how cute North appeared (and there's a whole set of separate outfits for her ballet outings with Penelope), let's remember what we're looking at, here.
The baby Balmain jackets from the luxury French brand came in mini here. The adult version retails for over $2,000. For North though, three custom baby Balmain jackets were gifted to her by the designer's creative director, Olivier Rousteing. North and Penelope have also been spotted with mini Louis Vuitton bags. Kylie's Snapchat of her $1 million purse closet showed us a selected Hermès bag for Stormi.
4 "FOR LUNCH, WE USUALLY GLUTEN-FREE RICE TORTILLAS, CARROTS AND CELERY"
If you've often wondered why the Kardashians always seem to be eating salad on the show, it's because they're super health-conscious. In 2016, Elite Daily covered Kourtney's self-posted food philosophies, which she extends to her kids.
"For lunch, we usually have carrots and celery with hummus and a gluten-free rice tortilla with sliced turkey meat or dogs– no bun. Penelope and I love salads." Kourt added almond milk and organic rice milk as her faves. "When we were in Italy, we all had pizza one night. But for the rest of the trip, I found that almost every restaurant had gluten-free pastas and gluten-free breads," she wrote.
3 WALKING THE RUNWAY AT FIVE, KIM SAYS HER KIDS WILL "HAVE JOBS"
North West is already considered a fashion icon by Vogue. In 2018, at the age of 5, North West walked her very first runway show. Modeling for L.O.L Surprise in biker chick leathers and shades, little North showed the world exactly why she's a headline-maker.
"Are you kidding me? Of course she's [going to have a job]. She will have to work for what she wants," Kim said in 2014.
Kim might be raising her kids in luxury, but she has made it very clear that they'll be having a career. North started modeling at just 16 months old, The Evening Standard reports.
2 BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENTS GETTING 16 MILLION LIKES (AND 443 ROSES)
We might use social media to announce a baby arrival. Breaking Instagram records? That's only something that'll happen if you're famous on a Kardashian level. Kylie's 2018 baby announcement actually made history– the pic received a record-breaking 16 million likes.
The arrival of Stormi also came with a beautiful gesture from Kylie's boyfriend, Travis Scott. To celebrate the birth of his baby girl, Travis sent 443 roses in honor of the time at which Stormi was born– 4.43 p.m. Khloe's birth announcement didn't quite reach Kylie's response, but millions of us liked that announcement pic. #Famous is how you enter the world if you're a KarJenner kid.
1 THE ENTIRE WORLD WATCHING MOMENTS LIKE THESE
Having hundreds of millions in the bank might seem like the easiest deal ever. Likewise, living in a huge marbled mansion (complete with garden fountains and pools). The KarJenners might be surrounded by the finer things in life, but they are trading it in for something that isn't easy. Namely, having the entire world watching their every move.
The cameras filmed Kourtney and Khloe giving birth. They've filmed Kim breaking down in tears. When Stormi made her 2018n debut on KUWTK, millions of us watched Kylie's every move. It's an unusual life, but remember, it's not exactly a private one.
