Stay strong, Kourt! Kris Jenner could not be prouder of Kourtney Kardashian for standing tall amid her recent split from longtime love Scott Disick. Speaking about the breakup in the new issue of Haute Living New York, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians momager said she admires the way her eldest daughter has handled herself these past few weeks.
"She's kind of my hero right now — she makes good decisions," Jenner, 59, told the mag of Kardashian, 36, whose nearly 10-year relationship with Disick resulted in three kids, Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 7 months.
"She always puts her children first and is accepting, loving, and dedicated to her family — she doesn't get easily ruffled," the famed reality TV matriarch added. "This situation has made me realize how strong she is."
Jenner was similarly effusive about the rest of her brood. "I learned quickly that all my kids have the most amazing work ethic. They all stepped up to the plate and showed me that they were frickin' amazing!" she raved, citing a recent brainstorming session with Kim, 34, as an example of their constant efforts to grow the family empire.
Kendall has proven to be quite the self-made star, too. The 18-year-old model has walked runways all over the world in recent months — including one at Chanel's couture show in Paris this summer. "She walked out in the finale as the bride with Karl [Lagerfeld] himself," Jenner gushed, "and I thought — 'Life doesn't get better than this!' I was so proud of her — my heart swelled."
Sometimes, she said, "I just pinch myself because I feel completely blessed at all we have accomplished…It makes me so happy. When my kids are happy, I am happy."
That sentiment extends to Jenner's ex, Caitlyn Jenner, too. Caitlyn has dominated headlines since her big Vanity Fair debut in June, and now even has her own E! reality show, I Am Cait, about her life as a transgender woman.
"I just want everyone that I love in my family and in my life to be happy," Kris told Haute Living New York, "and so my wish for Caitlyn is that she finds her joy."
