Kim Kardashian knows what it’s like to grow up as part of a big family.

The reality star is one of six children and also has three step brothers, thanks to her mother Kris’ marriage to Bruce Jenner.

But will she be having a similar sized brood with husband Kanye West?

Kim appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier in the week and revealed that after playing babysitter to her sister Kourtney’s children, Mason and Penelope, as well as her own daughter North, she was rethinking her plans to have a big family.

“To give my pregnant sister a break, I took care of my niece, nephew and my daughter. To bathe them, all three, feed them, get them in their pyjamas and down for bed, I was literally, like crying”, she said

“I have so many siblings and I love it, they’re my best friends,” the star continued. “I would want that for my kids, so I’m going to do 2 and see how it goes.”

But the talk of more children seemed to excite the mother-of-one, suggesting she might have three or maybe four little ones saying “I go back and forth.”

Kim also opened up about the changes in her body while she was pregnant with baby North, after Ellen commented that “…it’s a beautiful thing to be pregnant, it’s a beautiful thing to have a baby.”

“It was not a beautiful thing with me,” she responded. “People are lying to you…but it is so worth it. I’m so obsessed with my daughter, it’s so worth it.”

While on the show, the star also took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and true to form, an enthusiastic Kim took selfies as it happened.

Watch Ellen do the honours in the video below:

How did you decide how many children you were going to have?

  • seriously who cares about the kardashians,, I’m so over them.
    Anyways, I always wanted to children about 1 or 2 years apart but it didn’t work out that way.


  • I think her family seems so close and fun, I’m sure no matter how many she has she’ll be able to handle it!


  • Two doesn’t sound too difficult. Kim has heaps of paid help and family support to see her through with all the children she chooses to have.


  • lol i don’t know if i want anymore! when i was pregnant with my youngest, i wanted more but now i have such a handful! hubby keeps saying that he wants another lol and it is very flattering and i do kind of feel like the ball is in my court


  • I still havnt decided it jumps around all over the place but i have never thought about more than 3


  • I would love to add to our little family, just one more….

    • I love this comment; as I think the same thing…:)


  • well it really depends on the individual and the ability and willingness of them and their partner to have children. it is the best thing that i have done though! i love being a mum


  • I read the article but to be honest, I don’t follow who she is, hear the name a lot but what does she really do? One child, two, three? whatever?


  • Just the one for now. Who knows what will happen in the future.


  • I always wanted a sibling for our son, so when we fell pregnant again, we were really happy as it took awhile to fall pregnant both times. Our son and daughter are always there for each other.


  • We have twins and would like more — I always tell my husband that we bought a 7 seater for a reason!


  • As there was a 6.5yr age gap between our boys, we decided that 2 was enough.


  • I love how honest she is! I can see her having a few more than 2 ;) 2 was right for me – now haha. for the longest time i wanted another, but as they grew i cherished how things have become – and i became to selfish – going back to nappies and sleepless nights – no thank you!


  • I always wanted 6 kids. I wish I had had 6 kids.
    The guy I married knew i wanted a big family….we discussed these things before we got married. We had our first and he announced that he was done. People made comments about when we were having another child and mentioned negative things about only children and so he decided that we would have two. I really didnt care what others said i thought it was quite rude of them to comment but as it worked in my favour i was quite happy. We had baby #2 and 5 years later he decided that we would have #3 although he made it clear that he was not going to help at all in the care of that child. I agreed. So I have 3 children and we have a very close relationship. They are not very close to their Dad.


  • Two kids just felt right to us.
