Kim shares four children with her ex-husband Kanye West; nine-year-old North, Saint, seven, five-year-old Chicago, and four-year-old Psalm.
When Jay asked the Skims founder what parenthood is like, Kim was very candid and admitted that being a mom has taught her the most about herself.
In an exclusive video obtained by People, Kim began: “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, it’s the best chaos though,” she continued.
Kim then admitted: “It has been the most challenging thing. There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, what just happened?”
She went on to say that there’s “nothing that can prepare you” for parenthood and said she’s “working on being a little bit firmer” with her children.
In a snippet of the interview shared on her Instagram page, Kim continued: “Sometimes it’s nights where it’s just we are going hour by hour to see if we’re gonna survive.”
When Jay mentioned the topic of “mom guilt,” the reality TV star replied: “Mom guilt is probably the hardest thing… ‘Am I good mom?’ Kids, all they want is time.”
Elsewhere in the conversation, Kim told Jay: “Life is always going to be stressful and you can’t control half of it, but if you can control what you put out, then you know you’re on the right path.
“I do think that people pick and choose what they want to take from you.
“Once you realize this life isn’t really about you, and it’s about helping as many people as you can, all these doors open up for you and your mind just opens up,” she added.
The clip ended with Jay asking Kim if she feels like she wants to be in love again, but fans will have to wait until Monday to see the full chat.
Earlier this month, Kim received much backlash from critics for her “gross” parenting decision regarding her eldest child North.
In an Instagram Story posted earlier this month, Kim promoted her preteen daughter as an influencer.
Recently, Rolling Stone named North one of the most influential creators on its Top 20 list.
The publication stated: “While she shares the account with her uber-famous mom, North’s innate star power screams through her haphazardly edited videos — suggesting that the ability to influence might just be genetic.”
The Kardashians star shared an image of her daughter from the listicle and captioned the post: “Thank you, Rolling Stone, for picking North.”
In an online thread, critics ranted about how the Hulu star is pushing her young child to “grow up fast” and become “mature for adults.”
One person said: “This is icky. North is just nine years old.
“Is anyone actually watching her on social media besides adults?”
Another critic agreed and added: “So gross.”
A third mentioned: “It’s profit over children. Kim, let your girl be a child!”
A fourth person chimed in: “Is North really an influential creator? I’m sure she will be when she is older, but what is she creating besides dancing TikToks with Kim?”
