How Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Are Preparing North to Be a Big Sister

As Kim Kardashian West‘s due date for baby number two approaches, the reality star is sharing how she and her husband Kanye West are preparing daughter North, 2, for the new addition to the family.

In a new post published on her website Friday, Kardashian West, who is expecting a son in December, admitted that she is “a little nervous” about bringing him into the mix, but that she and West are doing the best they can to prepare their firstborn.

“We read books with her about getting a baby brother and a new sibling all the time!” Kardashian West, 35, wrote. “We always say goodnight to baby brother.”

The reality star said she knows “it won’t be easy” as North “even has a hard time adjusting” when Kardashian West holds other babies, but she is certain that her daughter will be “such a good big sister.”

Kardashian West also added that North is taking after her cousin Penelope, who is the 3-year-old daughter of Kourtney Kardashian, 36.

“Anything [North]’s cousin Penelope does, she does,” Kardashian West wrote, which she says is helpful since Penelope has a younger brother, Reign, 10 months.

Kardashian West, who celebrated her 35th birthday on Wednesday, says she is “just trying to spend as much time as possible with North” in the meantime.

“I don’t have that many more nights with just me and her before the baby comes and changes her world completely. I’m really trying to spend most of my time at home so we have this special bonding time.”

And just because Kardashian West and West, 38, are busy preparing for the baby, doesn’t mean they can’t make room in their schedules for some alone time.

“It’s still SO important to me to make time for my husband. Our schedules are already so busy and I know that the first few months when the baby comes will be harder and more hectic,” she wrote. “I know how important it is to do things on our own. We’ll definitely go on a movie night and go out to dinner. It’s important in any relationship to make quality time together a priority!”

And according to the expectant mom, the rapper “really is the best partner.”

“I wouldn’t want to go through any of this without him by my side!” she added.

This was actually one of the only articles about KKW that I liked! Maybe because it was North-based 🙂

This is the most real Kim has ever seemed. I’m sure in about 30 seconds she’ll post some ridiculous duck lips selfie and be back to ridiculous but for a minute, she seems real.

Poor kid looks just like her father. At what age will Kim start with the plastic surgery to change her appearance

Poor little girl always looks sad. Probably wondering who those people are taking a picture with her. 🙂

They are also preparing North to be narssistic and how to make money from posing nude, doing a sex tape, and having your own body fat injected into your butt to make it enormous. Too bad she won’t inherit musical talent since her father has zero talent.
