These Kris Jenner Quotes On Being A Grandma Prove It's Probably Her Favorite Job
If you've done even a half-way decent job of keeping up with the Kardashians, you probably know that they have blessed Kris Jenner with six grandkids. And now that both Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are reportedly expecting their own bundles of joy, there could be a total of eight little ones running around Calabasas. And honestly, these Kris Jenner quotes on being a grandma show that she probably can't wait because she's clearly loving the role so far.
As a refresher for those less versed in the Kardashian-Jenner family tree, here's a breakdown of all of Kris' grandkids. Kourtney Kardashian has three children with her ex, Scott Disick. They are 7-year-old Mason, 5-year old Penelope, and 2-year-old Reign. Kim Kardashian currently has two children with husband Kanye West — 4-year-old North and Saint, who is 21 months old — as well as one reportedly on the way in January by a surrogate mother. The last of Kris' current grandchildren comes from her son, Rob Kardashian with his ex, Blac Chyna. Together, the two have a daughter, 10-month-old Dream. Whew!
Most recently, the world found out that the youngest of Kris' daughters, Kylie, is reportedly expecting a little girl of her own in February with boyfriend Travis Scott. (Romper has reached out to representatives for both Jenner and Scott, but has not heard back.)
With all of these little ones running around, it is safe to say that Kris is already a seasoned grandma. But her quotes about her grandchildren and the role itself show that she has plenty of love to go around.
On Not Being Called Grandma
In an interview with People, Kris shared that she isn't a fan of the term "grandma." Instead, her grandchildren have a sweet nickname for her that is just as unique as she is:
They call me Lovey and Bruce is Grandpa. At first I was Grandma, and all of a sudden I didn't like the way that sounded, my mom had a friend called Lovey and I thought that was the cutest name.
Of course, now that Bruce is no longer Bruce, her nickname from the grandkids has changed as well. As inside source told Radar that Caitlyn Jenner is just fine with the traditional "grandma" title, or even "grams" or "Grandma C."
On Her Fears For Her Grandchildren
The Kardashian-Jenner family lives what is perhaps one of the most public lives in history. Growing up in that kind of environment can be difficult for young children. Kris is completely sympathetic to her grandchildren's cause when it comes to this and she told People that she worries bullying will be an issue:
It's my grandchildren who I worry about because I have six of them; the oldest just turned seven, and my youngest is six months old, and they don't have a choice… And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment.
On The Love That Grandchildren Bring
In sweet birthday post to her granddaughter North on Instagram, Kris explained the love and joy that comes with being a grandparent and getting to watch your grandchildren grow:
Happy birthday to our beautiful, funny, smart little love bug, North. You bring so much light to our lives and I am blessed beyond words to have you as my granddaughter. It brings me so much joy to watch you grow up to be sweet and kind and loving... I love you so much my precious angel girl...Lovey xo
On Seeing Her Children Become Parents
An obvious implication of being a grandparent is that you get the watch your own children become parents. In an emotional Mother's Day Instagram post to Kourtney and Kim, Kris gushed on how wonderful it is to see the two of them as mothers:
Being a mother is by far the greatest blessing. My children are my most precious gifts and I am so beyond proud of each and every one of them. To my angels @kourtneykardash and @kimkardashian, it brings me so much joy to watch you raise my beautiful grandchildren. You are both such incredible mommies and you teach us all daily about patience, selflessness and unconditional love
Say what you will about Kris. Sure, she's a little kooky and has most likely had a few glasses of vino as we speak, but she loves her family fiercely, grandchildren included. And that love is about to grow even more as Kim and Kylie could be welcoming their own additions to the Kardashian Klan very soon. Until then, her six other grandkids are here to keep her busy.
