The Kardashians are no strangers to the limelight. They have become a household name and it seems that there is just no stopping the Kardashian-Jenner clan from topping the headlines.
Now that the Kardashian sisters have practically gotten pregnant one after the other, all eyes and ears are on them and their offsprings as expected.
People are curious to know what the new generation of Kardashians will look like. Fans are also eager to know what the babies’ names will be. There’s just a lot of things people are clamoring to know more about this popular family.
No wonder their reality tv show has reached its 14th season on air. Needless to say, we won’t be surprised if Keeping Up with The Kardashians gets more airtime, especially now that a new breed of Kardashians and Jenners are here to follow in their footsteps.
The Kardashians, however, aren’t just about living frivolously. Sure, you can get inspiration from their fashionable clothes and stylish accessories. These items may cost much, but you could probably find some cheap alternatives if you were resourceful.
More importantly though, the Kardashians actually have some lessons to share with us, specifically when it comes to their respective pregnancies. Some haters might make the mistake of thinking that the Kardashians won’t be good mothers. However, the KUPWTK stars actually take parenting seriously.
Read on to learn more about the Kardashians’ pregnancies and the lessons we can learn from them.
15 No to Body Shaming
Let’s face it, the Kardashians put a lot of effort to look great in public. Kim, especially, also has no qualms about sharing racy photos on Instagram. If you have it, flaunt it, right?
Given Kim’s social media habits, she has been on the receiving end of both good and bad comments. Some followers applaud her for keeping her body in good shape, while some bash her for showing too much skin.
Things didn’t get any better when Kim got pregnant. This time, however, people remarked about how heavy she got. People even created memes of a very pregnant Kim KW beside a whale.
Kanye’s wife wouldn’t have any of it and took to social media to share that, “The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it's like, enough is enough... You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur..."
14 Early and Unplanned Pregnancy
Kylie Jenner is, undoubtedly, one of the most influential as well as wealthiest 20-year-olds out there. Despite being the independent and successful woman that Kylie is, her pregnancy still surprised the world.
As it turns out, the young Jenner has just started dating Travis Scott when she got pregnant with their child, Stormi. It’s great that Travis didn’t shirk from his responsibilities (as some young irresponsible boys are wont to do), but getting pregnant at such a young age and at such a very early point into their relationship might not set some good example for the younger generation.
Not every couple is as financially stable as Travis and Kylie, which poses a problem for the average and normal couples who suddenly find themselves pregnant at a ripe young age.
While we applaud Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott for not resorting to abortion, we also do not condone early and unplanned pregnancies among the youth. Bringing a child into the world is huge responsibility, so better think things over before doing anything that you might regret later on.
13 There’s Nothing Cuter Than Babies Showing Their Love
On April 1, Kim Kardashian West shared a photo of her son Saint kissing his baby sister Chicago on the nose. The mother of 3 shared that Saint loves being a big brother and we can just imagine how heartwarming it is to see your older children sweetly looking after their younger siblings.
Incidentally, the photo of Chicago with her older brother is actually just the third time that Kim has shared with her followers. We bet, however, that her phone is brimming with photos of her children.
Kim Kardashian is just probably thinking of her children’s privacy; hence, we can’t find a lot of photos from Kim featuring her children North, Saint, and Chicago.
12 Celebs Are Entitled to Their Privacy
Speaking of privacy, Kylie Jenner has chosen to keep her pregnancy out of the public’s eyes despite the numerous rumors that abound.
Fans couldn’t contain their excitement about Jenner’s pregnancy, they resorted to editing photos of Kylie to show baby bumps.
Given how popular the makeup mogul is, it is definitely an achievement for her to have kept her (not-so) secret a secret. The paparazzis tried so hard to take photos of Kylie Jenner; trying to expose her baby bump. Reporters asked the Kardashians to confirm Kylie’s pregnancy, but they got nothing.
It wasn’t until Kylie gave birth when her pregnancy was officially announced. Kylie, on her part, used social media to reach out and to apologize for keeping her pregnancy as private as she could. She also thanked her family and friends for the love and support she received during her pregnancy.
11 Naming Your Little Ones
In just under a year, there has been a surge in Kardashian babies. Kim and Kanye’s surrogate gave birth and Chicago West was born. Kylie and Travis Scott introduced us to Stormi, while Khloe and Tristan Thompson has just welcomed a baby girl despite rumors of the latter cheating on the Kardashian.
As of writing, Khloe and Tristan’s baby hasn’t been named yet, but it leaves us wondering if the couple will also come up with unconventional baby names like what KimYe and Kylie and Travis have done with North, Saint, Chicago and Stormi.
Incidentally, Rob Kardashian’s daughter with Blac Chyna has been named Dream, which also isn’t your ordinary baby name.
While it may sound cute to have unique names for babies, we also have to think long and hard about naming your little ones. Your children are going to carry their names for the rest of their lives; might as well name them something that they’ll be proud to have.
10 You Can’t Hide Pregnancy Forever
Try as Kylie Jenner might, hiding her pregnancy (before giving birth) from the press wasn’t ever going to be 100% successful. The media, it seems, made it their life’s mission to catch Kylie and her baby bump.
Some photos weren’t clearly showing the baby bump they so desperately wanted to catch, but some other photos were good enough to confirm Kylie’s supposed secret pregnancy.
We understand Kylie just wanted to have some privacy, but then again what if her situation gives yet another bad example to younger girls?
What will happen if a young lady finds herself with an unwanted pregnancy? Will this lady also keep her pregnancy concealed from her family, which could possibly harm her unborn baby?
Hopefully, the ladies know better and that they’ll plan on having a family when they’re ready.
9 Parents Will Always Support Their Children
If reports are to be believed, Caitlyn Jenner was apparently surprised and disappointed when she initially found out about Kylie's pregnancy. We would feel the same thing, too, if we were in Caitlyn's shoes. After all, Kylie just turned 20 when she found out about the pregnancy.
Caitlyn, according to reports feels that, "Obviously, Kylie has more than enough money to ensure that she can pay for help but Caitlyn still thinks that having a baby will take a huge toll on Kylie's life."
The wind, however, has changed for Caitlyn Jenner. She has eventually accepted the fact that her youngest daughter has given birth. In fact, Caitlyn was so excited about having a granddaughter, she even posted on Instagram to express how happy she was for Kylie.
8 You’ll Always Be Your Parents’ Babies No Matter How Old You Are
Caitlyn Jenner may have been previously shocked at Kylie’s big news, but the proud grandfather had a change of heart.
Caitlyn even shared a photo of Kylie as a baby and congratulated her daughter for having a baby herself. It is also interesting to note that Kylie looks a lot like Stormi when she was a baby.
What makes this Instagram post even sweeter is that both Kendall and Kylie Jenner liked the photo. To top it off, Kylie even left a comment saying that she loves her dad.
Obviously, all’s well that ends well. We can’t wait to see baby Stormi Webster with her grandpa. We’re also betting that Caitlyn is going to spoil her granddaughter the way other grandparents spoil other kids.
7 You Can Pull Your Baby Out Of Your Own Body
Kourtney’s life hasn’t been heard much, especially now that three of her sisters have just introduced their respective babies to the world. Kourtney’s previous pregnancies, however, were as interesting as the rest of the Kardashian pregnancies.
In fact, the delivery of Kourtney’s babies were even shown on television. Additionally, did you know that Kourtney actually pulled her children out of her womb while she was giving birth?
Some viewers found this really sweet, while others were quite shocked and found it a bit scary. Personally, I didn’t even know this was possible, but learning about Kourtney’s pregnancy and delivery is an eye-opener.
For pregnant mothers, who are curious about this practice, ask your doctor if it is safe for you to imitate Kourtney Kardashian. It would be a momentous experience for sure, but your baby’s safety is more important. We don’t want to risk dropping them from our hands, right?
6 Family Always Comes First
Following the pregnancy rumors surrounding Kylie Jenner last year, people were looking forward to the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s annual Christmas family card. They were hoping to have a glimpse of Kylie’s very elusive baby bump.
The Kardashians’ followers were to be disappointed though. Kylie was completely absent from said photo. Christmas is all about the family and this time around, it looks like the whole Kardashian clan opted to support Kylie Jenner’s privacy and went on with the Christmas card photo without the makeup mogul. Kylie, to make up for her absence, held an ugly Christmas sweater themed video featuring her bff Jordyn Woods and assistant Victoria Villarroel.
5 Struggles With Pregnancy
No one’s perfect, not even the Kardashians!
If you have been keeping up with the Kardashians, you would have noticed that Khloe had some trouble getting pregnant with her then-husband Lamar Odom. Apparently, Khloe had some fertility issues which made her union with Odom a childless one.
This time, however, Khloe has been blessed with her first child to her professional basketball player boyfriend.
Unfortunately, it isn’t just infertility issues that Khloe has to deal with when it comes to being pregnant. Rumor has it that her boyfriend has been spotted kissing another woman at a club a few days before Khloe was about to give birth.
Despite the incriminating video that surfaced, Khloe had him with her during the delivery of their baby girl.
4 Surrogacy Is Not Such a Bad Thing
Aside from Khloe Kardashian having issues with pregnancy, Kim found out that she would need a surrogate if she wanted to try for baby number 2. According to Dr. Kuang, Kim risks her health if she falls pregnant again. However, headstrong Kim and Kanye decided they’d try for their second child and Saint West was born.
This time though KimYe chose to listen to the fertility expert and found themselves a surrogate for baby number 3. Kim even allowed their surrogate to be included in one of the episodes of Keeping Up with The Kardashians. Kylie and Khloe were shown having a good time talking with Kim and Kanye’s surrogate.
As we can learn from Kim’s situation, there’s definitely nothing wrong with considering a surrogate to have a child.
3 Mastering the Art of Wearing Sweatpants
Ever since rumors of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy exploded, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner brood hid from the world. The rare occurrences that she was photographed, Kylie would almost always be wearing baggy clothes, sweatshirts and sweatpants in particular.
Knowing the Kardashians, we're used to seeing them in clothes that hug every curve of their enviable bodies. Unsurprisingly, seeing Kylie Jenner in very loose clothing only fueled the pregnancy rumors.
Kylie was undeterred though and kept wearing the comfy outfit. Wouldn't you wear the same outfits too if you were in her shoes? We know we would!
Needless to say, she mastered the art of wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants in the hopes of concealing her pregnancy.
2 Staying Pretty During Pregnancy
Some women have the misfortune of looking stressed when they are carrying a child in their womb. Not surprising since you’ll be putting on a lot of extra weight for nine months, right?
On the other hand, there are also those lucky women who are just radiantly glowing during their pregnancy! Of course, the Kardashians belong to this group.
Whether or not the Kardashians put on some extra effort to look as good as they do during pregnancy, the bottom line is that they are pretty pregnant women. And we envy that.
The lesson here is that we should never forget to take care of ourselves. The more we take care of our health, our looks, and our disposition, the better our babies will feel inside our womb.
1 Money Isn't Everything
Money does play an important part in raising a child. You’ll need a stable income to plan for your child’s education, growth, and future. However, money is definitely not everything when it comes to rearing a child.
While some people might see the Kardashians as superficial, there’s no denying though that taking care of their children is top priority.
According to an interview, Kim shares that she loves being super present for her kids.
To be able to do that, Kim Kardashian makes sure that she doesn’t have her phone when she’s with her kids. Kim adds that, “I can’t imagine what it’s like growing up in a world with social media as a young teenager,” and would love for her kids to know that there is a proper time to use mobile phones when they are growing up.
So please remember that while money can buy your kids some toys, it can never equate to parents’ love for their children.
