We’re not crying at Kris Jenner’s heartfelt and encouraging life update about Khloé Kardashian — you are. Jenner appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday to chat about what’s happening in her life and, more importantly, to talk about the recent highs and lows in the lives of her daughters. While Jenner wasn’t afraid to get candid about her daughters, especially the new moms of the group (Khloé, Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner), she couldn’t help but get a little quiver in her voice while talking about Khloé specifically.
When DeGeneres asked about Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, which emerged just days before Khloé gave birth, Kris got a little choked up with her reply. “Pretty unexpected, but Khloé is amazing. I’m so proud of that kid.” The audience applauded. “I get choked up because she’s such a good mom. Honestly, I get so emotional,” Kris continued.
Kris opened up about the last time she went out to Cleveland to visit Khloé. “It was snowing, and she was all nestled in, the nursery and the baby and — she’s just concentrating on that, just being a mom, her baby, and I think that’s what her sisters are doing as well. She’s so excited about motherhood,” Jenner said.
“She’s figuring it out just one day at a time and she’s just the best mom already, and that baby is so cute, little True.”
This sensitive admission from Kris is really touching to hear, especially considering the difficult situation Khloé’s in right now. Balancing the duties of being a new, first-time mom is one big hurdle, but she also has to manage life as a very public figure. She also has to wade through the junk that comes with allegations that her partner and the father of her child cheated on her, which is endlessly dissected by the world. That must make this whole chapter in Khloé’s life that much tougher.
But thankfully, Khloé will always have the support of her family, as Kris reminded DeGeneres in her interview. “I think we do what we always do and that’s spring into action with love, and we all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland, ‘cause that’s what we know to do. I’m there to support my kids no matter what happens, and I just do the best I can, just like anybody else would for their family, you know?” Kris said. “There’s a lot of us. We all get together and we do things together and we’re a force to be reckoned with.”
BRB, we need to grab some tissues.
