With the birth of her third child last year, Kimora Lee Simmons celebrated her return from retirement — at least in the world of infants!

While she insists her “instincts” are as strong as ever, she admits welcoming son Kenzo — who turns 1 this month — into the mix has only added to the experience.

“I’ve grown as a person, so some things are different,” she reveals of her return to the baby days in the latest issue of Baby Couture.

“Having a son was a twist, but of course I’m happy and loving it.”

Now juggling her three young kids — including daughters Ming, 10, and Aoki, 7½ — and her Baby Phat fashion lines, the Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane star is quickly finding out that quiet time is a thing of the past!

However, the chaos of each day is one that Simmons embraces with open arms.

“My days are full, that’s for sure,” she says. “But they’re filled with love and passion — my family and my work. My schedule is frequently hectic, but it’s always fulfilling.”

As for Ming and Aoki adapting to Kenzo, Simmons, 35, reveals the transition couldn’t have gone any smoother.

“They’re very nurturing and have been gung-ho about welcoming Kenzo to our family,” she raves. “They’re very protective and love to watch him explore and discover the world.”

They have such a beautiful family…and Kimora seems so well grounded despite her wealth and fame! I agree with Lori, I think they should have one more baby :-)

He is beautiful! I hope she has a few more kids because she make the cutest kids, and really seems to enjoy them. =)

I bet Kimora isnt done having children. I rememeber in interviews with her saying how much she wants to add to her family. She seems to be a great mother, and despite her fame and wealth, she doesnt seem to let it go to her children’s head. She seems strict, yet loving. Couldn’t ask for a better parent in that regard!
