Kim Kardashian feels very lucky to have her third child, Chicago, in her life.
When sitting down with Ashley Graham for Pretty Big Deal on Tuesday, the 37-year-old TV star added she was especially grateful to have the child – who is now eight months old – look just like her.
‘She is such a doll. She looks like, honestly, my twin mixed with Saint. It’s like the two of us in her,’ said the wife of Kanye West.
Saint is two and their first born North is aged five.
Chicago was the only child born via surrogate.
‘I think I was so nervous to have a surrogate and to have that connection that God was like, “I’m going to make her look just like you,”‘ said the KKW Beauty mogul.
This comes after Kim talked to Ashley about something ‘sweet’ Kanye did for her.
She said the rapper gave her $1m check for not posing for a brand that often knocks off his Yeezy line.
The company, which the siren would not name, offered her $1m to model their items.
The mother-of-three said she had to consult with her husband, who then said no. Later, the rapper gave her a $1m check on Mother’s Day as a way of thanking her for not taking the gig.
Kim said: ‘He’s like the cutest. A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on some of their clothing and they typically—I don’t want to say who the brand is—but they typically knock off Yeezy.’
The Selfish author added Kanye said, ‘No babe. I really don’t want you to do that.’
Kim said that was ‘understandable’ but that’s ‘a lot of money.’
But a week later he made it up to her.
‘Mother’s Day was, like, the next week. Mother’s Day comes and he happened to be recording out of town and I get my flowers and then I get an envelope delivered to the door,’ said the sister of Khloe and Kourtney.
‘I opened the envelope and it was a million dollar check with a note saying thank you for always supporting me and not posting.’
And there was even more: ‘In the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy—to have my percentage. And that was my Mother’s Day present.’
When asked if she cashed the $1m check, she said yes.
Kim also talked about how companies knock off Yeezy, like the mini dress she wore during Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party.
‘I said, “What we should do is have them pre-made. We know what we’re wearing and sell them on the site after.”
‘And he said, “No babe. I don’t really do dresses. That was just for you. Let them copy. It doesn’t really matter.”‘
She then said, ‘He doesn’t really care, but a lot of them are Yeezy influence.’
Ashley explained why she wanted to do a podcast: ‘I’ve had many deep and thoughtful conversations with incredible game changers whom I admire, which is why I decided to start this podcast so everyone can join in and discuss the topics that matter to us most with people who are pretty big deals,’ said the lingerie model.
The reason she started the podcast is because she thinks words are very powerful and people should be more sensitive.
‘Throughout my teenage years and my career, I was often referred to as “pretty for a big girl,”‘ Graham said, who is 5ft9in.
Graham – who has appeared on the cover of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle – prefers to not be called a ‘plus model.’
She continued, ‘When I started to realize how much power words can have, I thought to myself, I am pretty, and I am big. I’m a pretty big deal!’
On Tuesday images were shared of Kim and Ashley on the set of the show.
