Don't judge a woman until you've walked a mile in her Christian Louboutins. Four years ago, when her sister Kourtney got pregnant and decided not to marry longtime love Scott Disick, Kim Kardashian took a stand against having a baby out of wedlock. But now that she's happily expecting her own child with boyfriend Kanye West, the 32-year-old first-time mom-to-be is realizing that there's more than one way to be a family.
"I've said some things that I completely am, like, a hypocrite about now," the six-months-pregnant star says in a clip from the upcoming special Ryan Seacrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation. "I would say things about Kourtney like, 'You cannot have a baby without being married!'"
Indeed, Kim — who will welcome her bundle of joy in July — said earlier this year that she judged her older sister for having Mason, 3, and Penelope, 9 months, without a ring on her finger. "I was really firm and strict," she told Cosmopolitan magazine in February. "But she was like, 'Marriage isn't what I want.' And later, I realized she had a better family life than I did."
These days, Kim is in no rush to walk down the aisle again, especially having just settled her divorce from ex-husband Kris Humphries after 536 days of legal drama. The former spouses separated in October 2011 but didn't reach an agreement in court until Friday, April 18, a year and a half after their initial split. Humphries had been seeking an annulment based on fraud — he claimed their $10 million wedding was a ratings ploy — but that notion was dismissed at Friday's hearing.
With her divorce now finally behind her, the star can focus on getting ready for the birth of her first child with West, 35. "[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it," she told Cosmo of her romance with the rapper. "I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me."
