Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Her Fertility Struggles, And It’s Probably The Least Annoying She’s Ever Been

I've come to expect so much ridiculousness and vanity from Kim Kardashian every time she opens her mouth, so color me shocked that I find her somewhat…relatable? Maybe? In a recent press junket for the tenth (TENTH…ay yi yi) season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she opened up to the press about the difficulties she and Kanye have faced with conceiving their second child.

You know, as much as we don't want to admit it, this woman (and her entire family) have a huge influence/impact/platform with A LOT of people around the world (that sentence was incredibly difficult for me to type without cringing). It's incredibly rare for her to take a pause on pretending her life is anything but perfect on social media, during interviews, and on television so the fact that she's choosing to share a personal experience that so many women also experience is…kind of nice? Refreshing? I'm having a hard time coming up with adjectives here, obviously. But here's what she had to say about her own personal experience with infertility:

“It's been more challenging to get pregnant the second time around. When you're not planning it, it happens. It's just how God works.”

Let's not forget that this IS the woman who pronounced her baby weight as a lesson about being “too hot” personally handed to her by a deity. I'm surprised she's even considering getting pregnant again, much less trying this hard to do so. Oh well.

She's opened up in other interviews about how doctors told her she'd never be able to conceive on her own, and that she and Kanye are open to IVF and surrogacy if they can't conceive again naturally. And while those are incredibly expensive options that a lot of non-famous, non-wealthy people can't afford without going into massive debt if at all, I think it's… brave? helpful? of Kim to open up share a very personal, private, non-perfect part of her life with us.
