It seems that you can't pass a newstand these days without seeing Kim Kardashian plastered on the cover of one of the magazines. The reality star, who is several months pregnant with her first child, graces the cover of the April issue of Cosmopolitan. Photos from the shoot were taken just days before her boyfriend Kanye West announced their big news to the world back during a concert in December.
Kim, who is still married to NBA star Kris Humphries, explains why she was so judgemental of her sister Kourtney when she got pregnant out of wedlock in 2008. "I was like, 'You're not married! How could you do this?' I was really firm and strict. But she was like, 'Marriage isn’t what I want.' And later, I realized she had a better family life than I did," Kim said pointedly.
Kim has two failed marriages behind her. She wed music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and got divorced four years later. She and Humphries' divorce battle is set to go to trial on May 6. Hopefully, the marriage will officially be over when she gives birth sometime in July. The couple split up after just 72 days as husband and wife.
Despite her relationship drama, Kim has always dreamed of having a family. She told Cosmo: "I've always said that I wanted kids, but I don't think I ever would have been ready until now."
So is tying the knot to Kanye in her future? She explained, "Sometimes you're just not ready. A person could have it all, and you're not ready for it all. But this is where I probably always should have been…[marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it. I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me."
She added, "I used to think, 'Well, can you really have it all?' The truth, the excitement, and the passion? Now I know you can."
