While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are both extremely successful in Hollywood, the A-list former couple always puts their kids first. The KKW Beauty mogul and rapper welcomed four children — daughter North West, son Saint West, daughter Chicago West and son Psalm West — over the course of their six-year marriage.

Are Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Still Married?
In February 2021, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye after nearly eight years as a couple. Prior to the filing, the Skims founder was “really trying to keep the peace” and “remain on amicable terms” for the “sake of the kids,” a source exclusively told Life & Style in early January 2021.
“Kanye is a good father, and Kim wants him to be a prominent figure in the kids’ lives,” the insider added. “She’s hoping this will all roll out as smoothly as possible.”
Prior to the pair’s marital woes, Kim made it clear she and Kanye were done growing their family. “I love my babies so much but four is all I can handle with how busy I am, and each one of my babies needs so much attention,” the E! personality explained during an August 2019 Q&A on Instagram.
“Kim and Kanye feel like their family is complete,” a separate source previously told Life & Style. “Kim carried her two eldest children but went the surrogacy route when it came to Chicago and Psalm. She used her last embryo with Psalm.”
More than one year after their split, Kim admitted that coparenting with Kanye was “really f–king hard” as the rapper has publicly slammed her.
“In my home, my kids don’t know anything that’s going on in the outside world,” Kim said during a December 2022 interview on the “Angie Martinez IRL Podcast.” “I’m holding on by a thread, I know I’m like so close to that not happening but while it’s still that way, I will protect that to the ends of the earth as long as I can.”
What Is Kim Kardashian’s Parenting Style?
After becoming a single mom, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star relies on a strict routine to keep her kiddos in line. “Everything is like super planned out,” Kim told sister Kylie Jenner in a January 2020 YouTube video. “I’m like really, really organized. I think that’s the key to being successful honestly, is being organized. It’s hard. It’s a lot of work. But you can totally do it.”
Even so, things can still get a bit out of control. During a February 2020 appearance on Good Morning America, Kim revealed her daughter Chicago fell out of her high chair and had to get stitches. Thankfully, the adorable toddler ended up being OK.
“Stuff happens and you just gotta roll with it,” the proud parent mused.
Kim supports her kiddos to dive into their talents and creativity. North, for instance, loves to practice costume makeup and has even done her mom’s glam.
During Kim’s appearance on the “Angie Martinez IRL Podcast,” she revealed that North has a skill that has been sent down from her A-list musically inclined father.
“The other day, we’re just in the car and she puts on these beats, with no words or lyrics and she just sits in the car,” the beauty mogul explained, noting that North even likes to freestyle. “She could, for hours, just rap over the beats. So, I press record on my phone so that one day she’ll hear it and it’ll be so cute.”
When it comes to envisioning her children’s future careers, Kim just wants them “to be happy in what they do.”
