Khloe Kardashian is many things: reality TV star, outspoken younger sister to sisters Kim and Kourtney, savvy business woman and doting wife to NBA star Lamar Odom. But many may not know about another important role she plays -- stepmom.

Odom, whom she married in 2009 after a month-long courtship, has two kids with ex girlfriend Liza Morales. (Their third child died of SIDS at six months old in 2006.)

In the latest issue of Redbook, on newsstands now, Kardashian opened up about what it's like being a stepmom.

When asked if stepparenting has been hard for her, Kardashian replied, "Everything can be hard. But I had the most phenomenal teacher ever: Bruce Jenner. He loved my dad and never spoke ill about him. I would never want Lamar's kids to think I didn't totally support them. I love their mom, and they need to know that."
