Now heading into the home stretch of her pregnancy, Kim Kardashian is lucky that she has a mom who is adept at the culinary arts. Kris Jenner, who is presently touting her new cookbook, In the Kitchen With Kris, recently spoke to Extra about Kim’s cravings as the model carries her second child with rapper and producer Kanye West. Jenner said that Kim has a sweet tooth this time around and that the recipes in her book have come in handy during the pregnancy.
“She likes sweets right now; she probably shouldn’t eat too many sweets… but she loves all my desserts.”
People Magazine noted that Kris also dished about the eating habits and preferences of others in her superstar brood, including 19-year-old model Kendall Jenner. Kendall is Kris’s daughter from her marriage to Caitlyn Jenner.
“Every one of my family members has a different favorite, and I know that every time Kendall comes home from being away from her modeling — she’ll be gone two to three months at a time — she will literally text me when she lands saying, ‘Can you make me the tomato basil pasta, can you make me this, can you make that?'”
Kris Jenner’s cooking might well be one of the secret ingredients to a relatively smooth pregnancy for Kim and Kanye this time around. After a reportedly difficult time conceiving their second child — which led the couple to consider fertility treatments and surrogate parenting — things seem to be going well for the expecting parents. Their next baby is due in December but Kardashian and West are still staying in the limelight, most recently attending the celebrity-laden MTV Video Music Awards. Celebrity gossip repository Hollywood Life noted that Kim was “embracing the change in her body” at the show, sporting a full-length camo-colored dress that showed off a copious quantity of cleavage.
Mindful of the challenges from her previous pregnancy, Kim Kardashian is doing her best to stay healthy this time around. In an interview with C Magazine, Kardashian recalled the serious bout of preeclampsia she endured during her first pregnancy and how the emotional stress of media coverage was almost as challenging as the physical health problems she suffered.
“It was the worst! I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, ‘She can’t stop eating.’ I delivered at 180, and they were like, ‘She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat’ and all these ridiculous stories. It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off.”
It seems like the Kardashian-West clan is all about seeing Kim through to the end of a safe and successful pregnancy. Kim Kardashian is returning the favor, too, as she’s turning her doting mother into a busy grandmother. The new addition from Kim and Kanye will be Jenner’s fifth grandkid. Hopefully, the Kardashian matriarch has some baby food recipes in that new cookbook.
