When the SKIMS founder was asked to share her parenting experience and how she feels now versus before becoming a mother, to which she said,

“Everyone says the days are long and the years are short, and that couldn’t be like a more true statement.”

“So, like, when you’re in it, I mean, especially when they’re babies and you’re feeding … there’s madness going on. It’s like full madness,” she further added.  “It’s the best chaos though.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has four children with the rapper, Kanye West, including 9-year-old North, 6-year-old Saint, 4-year-old Chicago, and 3-year-old Psalm.

However, in 2020, the couple split and finalized their divorce in 2022 after going through an ugly legal battle.

Kim receives the amount of “$200,000 every month in child support”, a house worth of $4.5 million, that he bought next door, and the parenting disputes would be resolved by mediation.

A new custody agreement, parenting plans, and the division of West and Kardashian’s multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio were also settled.

While talking to Shetty on his podcast, the SKIMS founder told him that he couldn’t imagine what it feels like to be a single parent to four kids, particularly in morning times.

“It’s like I always have to do one of my daughter’s hair — and it has to be perfect and it has to be a certain way — and then this one needs me to put his shoes on and they all need you. … It’s like full crazy madness, cooking, running around. Like, it’s wild,” she told.

Kim further added, Parenting is the thing that has taught me the most about myself. It has been the most challenging thing,” she continues. “There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, holy shit, this f—ing tornado in my house. Like, what just happened?”

“You know, with all the moods and the personalities and sometimes they’re fighting, and you know, there’s no one there… Like, it’s [just] me to play good police officer and bad cop.”

She also admitted she is trying to be a little bit ‘firmer’ as a parent; but, this whole thing is not easy to handle and it becomes too hard sometimes.’

“That’s the only way I can describe it,” she shared with Jay. “It is the most rewarding job in the entire world. It is. There is nothing that can prepare you. … I don’t care how long you wait. I don’t care what you’re waiting for. You are never prepared.”

“But,” she added, “you will figure it out, and it will make you so proud of yourself that you figured it out and that you got through the day.”
