It’s her first magazine cover since she welcomed her mini-me, Stormi three months ago and 20-year-old Kylie sounds super excited about motherhood as she sits down with big sister, Kim Kardashian for a revealing interview.
The new mum opens up on getting through the early stages of motherhood, picking the name Stormi and the most surprising thing about motherhood among other things.
Read excerpts below.
Kim: The early stages of motherhood are challenging. How have you gotten through it?
Kylie: It’s actually been the opposite for me. I feel like it’s just been so amazing, and so much fun. I’m learning so much more about myself and life, and it’s been such a great experience. Of course there’s hard times and stuff… even in the beginning, just not sleeping, the nights, like, baby blues… and all the ups and downs. And also even when I’m here it was so hard to leave this morning. I’m like, ‘I’ll be right back, I’m so sorry, I have to leave!’ and she doesn’t even know what’s going on. I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere. I can’t wait till she can come everywhere with me, because right when she’s old enough I’ll bring her everywhere.
Kim: What is the inspiration for Stormi’s name?
Kylie: I really don’t know how we thought of Storm. Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me. And that kind of just stuck with us. And then I didn’t really like just Storm — I didn’t feel like that was her name. So then it became Stormi. And it just stuck. I feel like there were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better to be honest, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name.
Kim: As a mother, we have anxieties about the world. What kind of world would you like Stormi to grow up in?
Kylie: She’s going to have her own challenges. I just hope that she’s strong and independent and confident.
Kim: What is the most surprising thing about being a mom, and how has your perspective changed on beauty and business since becoming a mom?
Kim: I think recently you have become closer to all the sisters, especially me and Khloé, because we were all expecting at the same time… Our daughters are two weeks apart, so that’s really cute, and they’re like best friends.
Kylie: They hang out all the time. It’s crazy how fast they grow, because Chi [pronounced ‘shy’] is just, like, two weeks older, but you can tell she’s a little bit more advanced. And then, right when Stormi hits two weeks, she’s doing the same things Chi was doing, and they’re like… it’s just crazy to see them grow up together. It was so much fun [being pregnant at the same time as Khloé]. We would just experience everything together. I was a little bit ahead of her, so we were both doing it for the first time and I would just like warn her of things that happened… the amazing things that are going on, and feeling the baby for the first time. So we would talk, like, on a daily basis about everything.
