The transition from married life to single-parenthood can be difficult to adjust to for many celebs - despite the nannies and chefs that might be on hand to help.
The mother-of-four - who shares her youngsters with ex-husband Kanye West - has always been refreshingly honest about exactly how she was able to acclimatise to single life, following her 2021 divorce.
And this week, Kim revealed that she's actually okay with the idea of her eldest daughter North, 10, preferring to life with her rap star father.
Speaking on her hit reality series The Kardashians, Kim, 43, tells sister Kourtney Kardashian of her little girl: "She'll go to her dad, she'll be like 'Dad is the best, he has it all figured out'."
Mimicking North, Kim adds, "'He doesn't have a nanny, he doesn't have a chef, he doesn't have security. He lives in an apartment'. And she'll start crying, 'Why don't you have an apartment? I can't believe we don't have an apartment'."
Kourtney, 44, admits she's familiar with sister Kim's predicament, herself co-parenting her three children Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, with ex-husband Scott Disick.
"They do that at Scott's too," Kourtney - who is currently expecting her first baby with husband Travis Barker - confessed.
"'Dad has the best house, your house sucks'," she quotes her youngsters. "He has the best house. It's not super big, the vibe's better'.
"I feel like everything falls on the parent that's more involved."
Despite having a hoard of attentive staff on hand at her Los Angeles home, Kim - who also shares daughter Chicago, five, and sons Saint, seven, and Psalm, four - with ex Kanye, also claimed this week that she still struggles with mum-guilt.
Speaking on another episode of her reality series, she revealed: "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."
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."
