On caring less about what people think of her:

“At the beginning, I looked at people’s opinions. Now I’m content in my life, and I don’t care. The Things that make me happy now are different. But I swear you have to be born for this. It’s not for everyone. I know I can handle it.”


On why four children would be her maximum:

“I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom give the husband as much attention as the kids.”


On using a gestational carrier:

“I hated being pregnant. But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody.


On her relationship with Kanye:

“He’s taught me to have more of an opinion. I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We’re a good balance.”


This story appears in the April 2018 issue of ELLE.
