Kim Kardashian Says She ‘Cries Herself to Sleep’ Raising Four Kids Solo

Kim Kardashian is not happy being a single parent to her four children.

In a clip obtained by PEOPLE Magazine from an upcoming episode of Jay Shetty’s podcast, On Purpose with Jay Shetty, the reality star discussed the struggles of raising four kids alone.

When the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was asked what parenting is like for now versus when she didn’t have kids, she replied, “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 continued. “It’s the best chaos though.”

The 42-year-old SKIMS founder shares four kids with the Flashing Lights singer, Kanye West – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

The couple parted ways in 2020 and fought an ugly legal battle before finally settling the divorce in November 2022.

In the divorce settlement, she receives “$200,000-a-month in child support”, the $4.5 million house he bought next door, and parenting disputes will be resolved through mediation.

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

According to TMZ, it was determined that West, 45, and Kardashian would share joint custody and have ‘equal access’ to their four children.

The exes agreed to attend mediation. If one does not attend the session, the attending parent makes the decision.

Speaking to Shetty on his podcast, Kim told him that he has no idea what’s it like to be a single mum to four children especially in the mornings.

“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 said.

She 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.”

The mum-of-four further admitted that she is working on being a little bit ‘firmer’ as a parent; however, the whole this is ‘fu***ng hard.’

“That’s the only way I can describe it,” she told 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,” Kim 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.”

  1. Omg, there are so many single mums out there with a portion of what she earns. Pretty sure she has nannies n stuff. How do other ppl manage and not whine about about! No sympathy here. I brought up my son pretty much on my own and he’s now 24. Are you going to post that I struggled with it? Uh, no. Cuz I’m a nobody compared to celebrities. Disgusting.

  2. Well said Kim! Hang in there, in a blink of an eye, they move on. As rewarding as it is, it breaks your heart they have grown. Still the best job ever.
