On Keeping Up With The Kardashians , Kim opened up about why she’s hesitant to have more children.. She and her husband Kanye West currently have three children (Saint, North, Chicago), and Kim said that he wants more, seven to be exact. But given the amount of gun violence in this country, in particular school shootings, Kim isn’t sure that’s a good idea.
“I feel like the world is just so different now than when I grew up,” Kim said, “so I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids because it literally keeps me up at night thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this.”
The episode was taped shortly after 17 kids were murdered in a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, something that was weighing on Kim’s mind when considering having more children.
“As a parent, in general, the thought of bringing your kid to a school and having them not come home because of a senseless shooting is definitely something that a consumes me a lot,” Kim said. “It’s like everyday there’s something so traumatizing, it just makes you not feel safe.”
Kim and Kanye, with daughter North, were compelled to attend the March For Our Lives rally in Washington D.C., and Kim later met with some of the organizers. Kim was so inspired that Kanye might get his wish. “I feel like the whole next generation is so together and is gonna change the world,” Kim said, “and like, we can have another one.”
People also reporting on the topic, writes: The slayings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018 stuck a particular chord with the mother of three.
“I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids just because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this,” she says.
“I hear you. And people have been trying to kidnap, rob, take you, so that plays into all that,” Pippen says, referencing her friend’s harrowing experience being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016.
Later in the episode, Kardashian and West take North to the March to Save Lives in Washington, D.C., where the reality star feels inspired by the young activists who tell her the only way to really change America is to vote for politicians who support gun violence prevention in the midterm elections.
“I one billion percent believe that we need stricter gun laws,” Kardashian says. “We need background checks, you shouldn’t be able to walk into a store and buy a gun. And to hear that the kids have met with people numerous times and nothing’s been done is just so sad.”
