Kardashian clan matriarch and momager Kris Jenner reveals that she once feared that she would not be having any grandchildren. Kris shares that she could not believe that her daughter Kourtney is pregnant with her third child.
TV personality Kris Jenner (R) talks with reporters as she arrives for a party thrown by Google and the Hollywood Reporter, on the eve of the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, at the W Hotel in Washington, April 27, 2012.
Jenner makes the revelation in an exclusive interview with Giuliana Rancic for Beyond Candid on E!.
Kourtney already has two children with her long-time partner Scott Disick, Mason 3 and Penelope nearly two, who both appear frequently in the reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and their various spin-offs over the years. Mason's birth was even documented almost entirely in one of the episodes for the show.
Jenner's other grandchild, North West from newlywed parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, was born a year ago. Kim's announcement that she was expecting as well as her ordeal throughout a difficult pregnancy was also documented in the reality show. Baby North as opposed to the Kardashian-Disick kids does not make regular appearances in the show.
Kris has six children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Robert from her ex-husband, high profile lawyer Robert Kardashian. She has another two children with former Olympian Bruce Jenner, Kendall and Kylie who both also appear in the reality shows.
Kris tells Giuliana that at 16 years old she already knew that she wanted six children and that was exactly what she did.
She also reveals that there was a point some years ago when she thought that if her children didn't start soon, she won't be having any grandchildren. After only a few years, she now has three grandkids plus another one on the way.
"It's just fabulous!" she exclaims about being a grandmother many times over.
"They are on fire right now," Jenner says about her kids, especially Kourtney who broke the news about her third pregnancy in the latest season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
Her youngest daughter, Khloe was also documented in the show to have been trying to conceive with now estranged husband Lamar Odom. The couple had no such luck and Khloe has reportedly been dating rapper French Montana and pregnancy reports have been surfacing as of late as well as a possible second child for the Kardashian-West couple. If any of these reports are true, Kris Jenner could find the number of her grandchildren possibly overtaking her kids.
