Kim Kardashian On Motherhood: 'I'm A Bit Nervous And Anxious'

Kris Jenner is not only Kim Kardashian's mother; she's also her "momager," having famously managed the business ventures of Kim and her siblings. And in a Mother's Day blog post, Kim revealed that while Kris' example has inspired her as she prepares to become a mom herself, she's also "a bit nervous."

"Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a special day to honor my role model and best friend," she wrote. "As I’m counting the days until I finally get to be a mother, I’m a bit nervous and anxious but also excited knowing that I learned from the very best."

Kim, 32, continued, "My mom is a strong and ambitious career woman that despite her busy schedule and the millions of things she has going on, she still manages to put family first and continues to look out for us every day. Motherhood is a gift and I know after watching my mom do it, it’s not easy especially when trying to balance a career. I’m honored to follow in her footsteps and make her proud like I am of her."

Kim, who's expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, 35, recently opened up about how pregnancy has changed her lifestyle thus far.

"I'm definitely more of a recluse since I was pregnant. But I haven't necessarily decided to hold myself back, it's just preparing myself for respecting the privacy of my child and my boyfriend," Kardashian told the U.K.'s Fabulous magazine. She added of West, "We live different lives, but I love being open. That's who I've always been. That will never change because that is who I am."
