On Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian opened up about why she’s hesitant to have more children. She and her husband, Kanye West, have three children (North, Saint, and Chicago), and Kim said that Kanye wants more, seven to be exact. But given the amount of gun violence in this country, in particular school shootings, Kim isn’t sure that’s a good idea.
“I feel like the world is just so different now than when I grew up,” Kim said, “so I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids just because it literally keeps me up at night thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this.”
The episode was taped shortly after 17 kids were killed in a school shooting in Parkland, Fla., something that was weighing on Kim’s mind when considering having more children.
“As a parent, in general, the thought of bringing your kid to a school and having them not come home because of a senseless shooting is definitely something that consumes me a lot,” Kim said. “It’s like every day, there’s something so traumatizing, it just makes you not feel safe.”
In the wake of the Parkland shooting, Kim and Kanye, with 5-year-old daughter North, felt compelled to attend the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., on March 24, and Kim later met with some of the organizers. Kim was so inspired that Kanye might get his wish. “I feel like the whole next generation is so together and is gonna change the world,” Kim said, “and like, we can have another one.”
