“I don’t care how long you wait. I don’t care what you’re waiting for. You are never prepared. But you will figure it out, and it will make you so proud of yourself that you figured it out and that you got through the day,” she added.

People Slammed Her

People started making fun of her, as she is a billionaire. So, how can she face these issues?

It's Odd

One Twitter user wrote, “Kim Kardashian explaining that she gets tired as a mother is odd to me. It’s not like she struggling. You have maids, nanny’s, and all kinda help. Crying yourself to sleep?? Because you found out kids aren’t accessories and you have to be around??“

Kim Gotta Stop

Another user trolled her by writing, “Kim Kardashian gotta stop man. Her and Kanye worth over a billion. She act like she a typical single mom working two jobs struggling to make ends meet. She has nanny’s, chefs, and tutors. Them struggling single moms gotta do all that sh*t by themselves.“

Why Does She Cry?

A third one agreed, saying, “Kim Kardashian says that sometimes she cries herself to sleep over motherhood and all the hard work she hears her Nannie’s doing through the walls.“

It Must Be Hard

”Must be really hard living in a mansion, never having to worry about bills & having a fully time nanny. How does @KimKardashian survive!?!?,” a fourth one chimed in.

What Else Does She Need?

Another user also trolled her, commenting, ”Oooookay but Kim Kardashian is a billionaire with a nanny, a cleaner, a driver & access to help whenever she wants... Kanye West was right about her!”
