The might be one of the richest and most highly sought-after names in the celebrity universe, but Kim Kardashian is still, at the heart of it, a doting mother-of-four.

The US-born reality star - famed for her family's legendary TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians - has also never been one to shy away when it comes to her refreshing honestly over the realities of parenthood.

Despite having a hoard of attentive staff on hand at her Los Angeles home, Kim has this week claimed that she still struggles with mum-guilt.

The star, 43, has been adjusting to life as a single mother since she and ex-husband Kanye West bitterly parted ways in 2020, with their divorce being finalised in February 2021.

The pair share four children together - daughters North, 10, and Chicago, five, and sons Saint, seven, and Psalm, four.

On the latest episode of The Kardashians, SKIMS boss Kim admitted she's 'still learning how to be a single parent'.

"I just did the Jay Shetty podcast where I spoke about parenting, and I mean, I should be used to it by now, but everyone had a lot to say," she said.

Referencing the 'nannies and a chef to help cook,' Kim claimed she still feels guilty about not being able to spend all of her time raising her brood.

"It's all about family and enjoying these moments. It takes a village to raise kids, but at the end of the day, your kids only want you," she emotionally explained.

"The one thing that everyone has in common is just the amount of time that we have.

"I'm raising four kids and I split my time between my work, my family, my four kids and I want to make sure that my kids have 90 percent of that."

Speaking on the immensely-popular reality series, American Horror Story actor Kim also revealed she'd recently hired a male nanny to care for her eldest son Saint.

"I do think that my household and even our family is very female-dominated," she disclosed.

"I recently hired a manny. I really wanted a male around that would be picking them up and taking them to sports, and I was scared out of my mind to tell their dad that."

Opening up about the way her own parents - Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian - raised her, she continued: "It's really hard for me to be really strict and to discipline a lot.

"My parents weren't strict at all and sometimes because I'm really busy, it would be amazing if I had a partner who would tap me out and take over and handle it but, you know, it can't happen like that."
