Kim Kardashian was overcome with emotion as she candidly spoke about co-parenting her children with her ex-husband, Kanye West, during the time when she and Kanye were going through their divorce.
Since the lawyer filed for divorce from the rapper in February 2021, the exes have been sharing parental responsibilities for their children North (now nine), Saint (now six), Chicago (now four), and Psalm (now three).
When Kim lay bare the reality about how “hard” co-parenting is, she did so in an honest way, and it caused her to get upset as she thought of her own father, Robert.
She said to the presenter of the podcast: “My father was the greatest, I don’t want to let my feelings show any more. It has been a day like any other for me. It is not easy.
Co-parenting is a difficult task to do, as you probably already know.” The presenter of the program expressed their understanding that Kanye was not the “quietest” or “easiest” former partner to co-parent with.
Despite this, the mother of four maintained the most optimistic attitude she could muster.
She said that her children like listening to their father’s music, so she plays it for them in the vehicle while they are riding together. Kim expressed her excitement that all she wants for her children is for them to have the “best experience.”
She went on to say that “That’s true, but I had the finest father, and I have the best memories, and I had the best experience possible, and I want the same for my own children. You should know that as long as they are able to have it, that is what I would want for them.
“Why, therefore, would I ever convey that kind of energy to them if they are unaware of the things that are being discussed in the media or the events that are taking place across the world?
You should know, that’s some serious, serious business for kids. That they are not prepared to deal with in any way, shape, or form.
“And when they are, we will have those discussions, and I will be so prepared for them; but, until then I will do whatever in my power to make their life as normal as is humanly possible.”
