Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have recently announced that they are expecting their fourth child via a surrogate. The celebrity couple already have their hands full with three children – North, Saint, and Chicago – but apparently love their family life so much that they are looking to make it as big as possible. In other words, the Wests will soon have more family members than the Kardashians and Jenners combined, and you know what that means. Kimye’s family is going to be dominating the celebrity world and headlines for years to come. They are not going anywhere, anytime soon.
With that being said, Kim and Kanye’s life will definitely change now that they will have four children in their family. Actually, there will be certain things that will change – especially for the West siblings – while other things will remain the same. The chaos is already there. The parents are already tired. And yes, the sibling jealousy issues won’t be going away anytime soon. That’s why we’ve got 10 ways we think Kim and Kanye’s family life will change in 2019 and 10 ways it will stay exactly the same.
20 More Kids, More Physical Work
A lot of parents will agree that when you have small children, it often feels like you are physically tired. Yet, as your children grow older, you feel as though you are more mentally tired. That’s because with small toddlers you are running around after them all the time. But with your older kids, you are constantly worried and stressed about their well-being and their safety. And with four small children, Kim and Kanye can expect to be on their feet – and running – almost constantly from now on. It’ll feel like they are chasing their children on a daily basis.
19 Less Individual Time With Each Child
As much as we love our children, many parents will agree that it’s not always easy giving them the time they need and deserve. As a matter of fact, many working parents often feel guilty for not spending enough quality time with their kids. But now that Kim and Kanye are going to have four children, they will have less individual time with each child. As much as they will try to give each child the love and support they need, they will often find themselves wishing there was a 25th hour in the day. Don’t we all feel this same way?
18 More Publicity
No matter what you may think about the Kardashians, you’ve got to give them credit where credit is due: they’ve done one heck of a job extending their 15 minutes of fame to well over 15 years – and still counting. And yes, they do get plenty of attention for the things they do and say in public, and of course, their family life. With one more child in the mix, expect to see Kim Kardashian and Kanye West get even more publicity by the media than ever before. Everyone will want to see them juggle their lives with four babies at home.
17 More Sleepless Nights With Baby No. 4
Let’s not kid ourselves here: Kim and Kanye most likely have the kind of household staff that many moms and dads can only wish for. We are pretty sure that they have nannies and household staff members that help them around the clock. But with that being said, Kim tries to be as hands on as possible with her kids. With four kids in the house, it’s doubtful that anyone will be getting any sleep this year. Even if you are not the one waking up for them, there’s a good chance that everyone will be hearing some sort of crying in the middle of the night.
16 More Things To Worry About (Stress And Finances)
Sure, Kim and Kanye have a very comfortable lifestyle and according to their fans, all of the money in the world. But with their grand lifestyle comes some pretty grand bills, if you know what we mean. And with four children to take care of at home, it’s without a doubt that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will have even more things to worry about, especially when it comes to their finances and all of the stress that comes with it. Hey, you’ve got to feed those babies and still have enough for the finest caviar in the world, right?
15 Making More Room At Home For The New Baby
For the longest time Kim and Kanye didn’t even have a house of their own, as they lived with her mother, Kris Jenner. And while they do own several properties now, they will have to make room for a new baby. But according to Kim, she’s done. The shop is closed after this. Speaking about how four children would be her max, Kim told Elle Magazine, “I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids.”
14 More Reasons To Work
With six people in their family, Kanye will have even more of a reason to hit the studio while Kim will also be working on her career, too. After all, financial stability will be important for everyone, including all four of their kids. “It is an adjustment trying to balance a career and motherhood for sure, but the key is to prioritize,” she once said. “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!”
13 More Jealousy Issues
Kim has often been very honest about her daughter North and her jealousy issues. And with four kids in the house, there’s no doubt that things will get worse. “North acts like an only child at all times. I think she’s a little confused,” Kardashian West said. “She’s beyond jealousy now. She’s just like, ‘It’s my world.’ She said to me the other day, ‘Mom … we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone … so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house.’”
12 More Personal Issues
If there is one thing they can expect this year, it’s definitely more chaos at home. As a parent, Kim has learned not to put up with certain things in her life, regardless of what it is, or what other people have to say. As a parent, she tries to focus on her family and not all of the nonsense that usually gets thrown her way. According to Brainy Quotes, the reality television star once said, “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.”
11 More Social Media Posts
If there is one thing that Kim Kardashian loves the most, it is social media. Yes, she’s very open and honest with her fans, but she also loves to give them a sneak peek of what her life really is like behind the scenes. That’s because she loves taking photos and better yet, sharing them with the world. There’s a good reason behind it, too. Kim once said, “I'm a really nostalgic person. I love taking photos and video and having memories. I remember all my childhood videos that my dad used to take. I think that's really what life is about - especially when you start a family of your own.”
10 The Lifestyle Will Remain The Same
When it comes to their day-to-day lives, everything will remain the same. They will have the same worries, the same stress, they will feel just as tired, happy, lonely, or fed up as times as they already have. But even with all of the ups and downs they face each and every day, Kim does her best to remain positive, especially when it comes to her family life. Kim once said (via Brainy Quotes): “At the end of the day, life is about being happy being who you are, and I feel like we are so blessed to have the support system and the best family to really just support each other no matter what we're going through.”
9 They Will Still Get Plenty Of Help From Their Staff
Let’s face it: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are truly lucky in their lives, and that’s because it really doesn’t matter how many kids they have at the end of the day. Simply put, they can always rely on their household staff. Still, Kim insists on remaining in control and keeping things as simplified as possible at home. Kim told Elle Magazine, “My life is chaotic, so my home is super simple. Everything has to be clean. No clutter. I can’t have a full phone. At the end of the day, I delete everything that’s not a current conversation. If I need some information, then I keep it. If not, it has to be deleted. I can’t see too much noise.”
8 There’s Not Much Of A Difference Between 3 And 4
When it comes to the rollercoaster that is parenthood, it really doesn’t matter how many children you have. When there are issues or sibling rivalries, having two kids quarrel can sometimes feel like you are trying to stop a huge war from happening. “She has a sign on her door that says, ‘No boys allowed,’” Kim said of North’s disdain for all the boys in her life, including her own brother. “She won’t even let Saint step foot in her room. If he does or if he’s with me and I have to take care of both of them … it’s like full war.”
7 Their Energy Levels Won’t Go Down Or Up
After your second child, a lot of parents have realized that their energy levels really don’t go up or down. That’s because when you are tired, you are tired. Still, Kim Kardashian seems to enjoy every little detail about motherhood, even when she feels like she doesn’t have anything left in her at the end of the day. This has been her best role to date. “I love being a mom! It’s the most rewarding feeling! I really love every phase!” she told a parenting blog. “Just the way my daughter laughs with me, all of the small things in life you appreciate!”
6 Nothing Will Surprise Them
By now, it’s safe to say that Kim Kardashian has definitely seen a lot of things in her life. After all, she has a crazy schedule, she jet-sets all over the world and she meets different people on a daily basis. Nothing will surprise her, or at least nothing should. Speaking about her chaotic life and everything she has done, Kim once said, “You make mistakes, but I don't have any regrets. I'm the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it. I learn from everything I do. I work very hard, I have so many things going on in my life. Get to know me and see who I am.”
5 Their Family Goals Will Stay The Same
Kim Kardashian might be one of the biggest names in the entertainment world, but she insists that her kids are going to work just as hard for everything as she has in her own life. Nothing will be handed down to them just because they happen to be her kids. Their family goals will remain the same. “I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North’s] first job is gonna be,’” she told ES magazine. “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.”
4 The Crying Won’t Bother Them (They Are Used To It By Now)
Noise? What noise? For Kim and Kanye, it’s all relative. By now, they are used to all the noise that surrounds them that an extra baby crying throughout the night probably won’t even phase them at all. But then again, according to the reality television star, her family has been very lucky so far as they aren’t as loud as you’d think they were. Kim once told Elle Magazine, “My kids just aren’t that loud. My daughter has a friend over; they’re in the playroom. But they’re outdoorsy. My dog’s even quiet; it’s the craziest thing.” Watch this space, because that might change very soon!
3 Everyone Is In This Together
The one great thing about having a family is that no matter what happens, everyone is in it together. There’s no ‘you,’ or ‘I’ so to speak, but ‘we.’ And if there is one thing that Kim is grateful for, it’s having a partner like Kanye West by her side. He loves being a parent, just like her. Speaking about Kanye, Kim said, “All week he’s been like, ‘You know what? I love just being a dad, like it would be so fun to just give up being Kanye West and become, you know, Dad-ye full time, like the Manny.’”
2 The Feedings, Diaper Changes And Daily Routine Will Stay The Same
It’s a good thing that Kim likes to operate and run her family like clockwork. Because if there is one thing that will remain the same, it’s all of the feedings, diaper changes and the daily routine. Because let’s face it, not much really changes from the third to the fourth kid. “I am a strict mother,” she also told Mail Online. “I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib,” she said. Adding: “And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But . . . I’m not crazy strict.”
1 The Little Moments Will Stay The Same
For Kim Kardashian, she’s already used to her high-paced lifestyle and everything that goes on around her. But for Kim and Kanye, things will never be quiet again, yet that is not such a bad thing. The celebrity mom always loves to talk about how much she adores her children. She loves all the little moments she has with her kids. Speaking about her ‘sweetheart’ son Saint, Kim said, “It’s so funny, and he’s just the nicest human being on the planet. Today he’s like, ‘Mom, you’re my best friend’ … so I tried to get him on video, so I was like, ‘What did you say?’ And he said, ‘I love you so much, Mom.’ I was like, ‘Even better!’”
