Kim Kardashian admits she ‘cries herself to sleep’ as she solo parents four kids

Kim Kardashian has revealed in an emotional interview that she sometimes "cries herself to sleep" at night as she juggles life as a single parent to the four children she shares with ex-husband Kanye West.

The American TV personality and trainee lawyer, 42, admitted that while being mum to North, 9, Saint, 7, Psalm 5, and Chicago, 5, was the "most rewarding job" she's ever had, it takes a toll on her.

"Sometimes it's nights where we are going hour by hour to see if we're going to survive," she told the On Purpose with Jay Shetty podcast, adding that her "mum guilt was probably the hardest thing" to manage.

Kim and Kanye, 45, welcomed their first child together in 2013 before marrying in a lavish ceremony in Italy the following year. But troubles in their marriage were reported just a few years later and Kim eventually filed for divorce from Kanye in 2021 and has retained custody of their children.

Opening up about the reality of life as a single parent, Kim revealed that juggling the four youngster's different personalities and needs is probably the most difficult part of her job as a mum, especially as she's managing them alone.

"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," she explained. "That’s the only way I can describe it. 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."

Kim is known for sharing her children's lives on their various reality TV shows and social media apps, but the public picture is often very different to the private, she conceded.

She said: "‘It has been the most challenging thing. There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, 'holy s**t, this f*****g tornado in my house. Like, what just happened?’."

Kim found herself in hot water recently after allowing her two eldest children – both aged under 10 – to go live on TikTok, which has strict rules about not allowing anyone under 13 to use the social media app.

She filmed a dance routine with the pair but some followers branded "sick" and accused her of putting her children "in the firing line".

Season three of The Kardashians is set to begin airing this week and promises plenty more insights into one of the world's most famous family.

An explosive trailer released in advance showed storylines involving all five of sisters – Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie – and is expected to break season 2 viewing figures.

We're expecting Kim to spill the beans about her relationship break-up with Pete Davison (although the two are rumoured to be back on!), as well as dealing with her ex-husband.
