In the beginning, having children usually puts a strain on any relationship until the adjustment period passes. Kim Kardashian West opened up in a conversation with sister Khloe, on their hit television show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, stating that she and Kanye were not immune to this common occurrence.
“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” she surmised while talking to her sister.
Khloe replied, “Sometimes men still want to be treated as like, the first baby. I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”
Kim took Khloe’s sisterly advice and has begun to make her relationship with her husband a top household priority, going above and beyond for her man.
“After my conversation with Khloé, the one thing that I realized is I make such a priority for all the kids, and I go above and beyond for them, but in that, I’m fully neglecting my husband,” she said. “So I just want to give Kanye the attention and love that he needs. … When you have so many kids, it’s important to still make your relationship a top priority. Kanye is so thoughtful and even when he’s in crazy work mode he always takes the time to check in on me, see what’s going on,” she added. “And I think when I get in super busy mode, I need to just slow down and be a bit more thoughtful. I think I’ve definitely gotten better with that after this.”
Lesson learned as we see the beginnings of “couple goals” in the making!
