Although the lives of celebrities are public affairs, mostly it is just about them and not those that surround them. What many people fail to appreciate is the fact that their celebrities have people in their social circles to thank for their success. The celebrities themselves are usually put between a rock and a hard place because they have to appreciate those important persons while at the same time they want to protect their privacy, especially if they do not like to attract public attention.
For Kim Kardashian, things are a little bit different. Almost everyone in her family is actually a celebrity in their own rights. You will remember that she first became popular when her sex tape with Ray J was leaked and thereafter by her friendship to Paris Hilton, the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton who was the founder of Hilton group of hotels.
However, her success as American television personality, actress, model and socialite came when she appeared in the series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This series was a family affair where Kim played a key role together with her sisters and other family members. In this post, you will learn more about the important people in Kim Kardashian’s life including her dad, mother, kids and current family.
Facts about Kim Kardashian’s Dad and Mom
Kim was born 35 years ago to parents Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. Robert George Kardashian was born February 22, 1944 and died on September 30, 2003 (aged 59). He was an American attorney and businessman. He was best known for being a friend and defense-attorney to O.J Simpson during Simpson’s murder trial in 1995. He married Kris Houghton Kardashian (later Jenner) in 1978 and separated in 1991.
During their time as married couples, Robert and Kris had four children: Courtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob. The man struggled with esophageal cancer and succumbed to it eight weeks after diagnosis. His children with Kris, all of whom have become well-known for appearing on their family reality television series, succeeded after he had died. It is interesting to imagine what he would have felt to see his children becoming so successful.
Kim’s mother, Kris Houghton Jenner (formerly Kardashian) was born Kristen Mary “Kris” Jenner on November 5, 1955 (age 60). She is also a television personality well-known for her pivotal role in the family’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians and their spin-offs. Besides Robert whom she divorced in 1991, Kris got married again to Bruce Jenner (also known as Caitlyn), a retired Olympic Champion the same year. She had four children with Robert Kardashian and two children (Kendal and Kyle) with Bruce Jenner.
Kim Kardashian’s Kids: How Many Kids Does Kim Kardashian Have?
One thing that celebrities fear so much is pregnancy and having children. There are several reasons for this. First, the physiological and anatomical changes associated with pregnancy are not friendly. Fat distribution as the body prepares for the pregnancy and parturition can cause overweight and interfere with skin quality. Secondly, the responsibility of carrying the pregnancy to term can interfere with the career of the pregnant celebrities. Lastly, it is often difficult to raise children through childhood. To solve the problem, most celebrities prefer to have kids later in life just before retiring from the careers.
Although Kim has been married three times, she only has two kids, a beautiful daughter, North West and the newly born baby boy Saint West. Baby North West was born on June 15, 2013 while Saint West was born on 5th December 2015 to Kim and Kanye West (her latest husband). The little girl was born five weeks before her due day but that has not interfered with her growth and health. The flamboyant girl has taken after her mother’s beauty and could be another star in the making. It is not clear where the name North came from but most people assume it has a hidden meaning.
Kim Kardashian’s Family
As previously mentioned, Kim Kardashian has five siblings; three from her biological father and two from her stepfather. The entire family is extremely successful with each member showing high levels of success in their respective careers. The relationship between the family members cannot be said to be great but considering the circumstances, they are doing pretty well. When it comes to her nuclear family, Kim seems to be doing extremely well with Kanye West. They live in a big mansion in Hidden Hill, California. There has not been any instance to indicate to the public that all is not well in the home.
