Kylie, 17, recently admitted that she’d used temporary fillers to help achieve her super-full pout – and Kim fully supports her decision.
‘If I had a daughter that was her age, what would I do? And I saw for so many years how she was so insecure. At 10 years old, she would say to me: “How come my lips aren’t big like yours?”
‘I gave her the advice and I still stand by that advice… it changed her confidence so much.
Hmmm. Seeing as Kim does have a daughter – in the form of her and Kanye West‘s one-year-old North – we wonder how she’ll feel about any cosmetic treatments the tot may one day consider?
When asked if she thinks Kylie will have more surgery, Kim added: ‘I think there are limits and there are boundaries, for sure. I think that you have to know the difference.
‘She did something that made her feel better about herself and that’s kind of where you have to draw the line, and she knows that. She doesn’t have a desire to do anything else.’
Despite being in the spotlight, Kim is proud that Kylie and her older sister Kendall, 19, have managed to retain some sense of normalcy over the past few years.
‘They are growing up with a life of privilege but they really are super grounded, responsible,’ she tells Access Hollywood.
‘I think that is their reality. I think that having so many sisters that grew up differently than Kendall and Kylie and always there to talk to them about things, they know when things aren’t normal. They know that all their friends aren’t going on private jets.
‘Kylie is 17. People would question: “Are you going to school?” Yes, she’s home-schooled. She has a year left. She goes to school every single day.’
And Kim herself admits that she had to swallow her pride when she made the first move on her now-husband Kanye, 37, after she split from her ex-hubby Kris Humphries.
The pair had been friends for years and Kanye has admitted that he’d liked her since way back in 2006, but the time had never been right for them to get together.
‘I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again. He didn’t, and so I called him and I said: “Hello?”‘ says Kim.
In my head I was like: “You know what? Screw it. Like, this is probably what I’ve been waiting for, it’s been in front of my face.'”
