Kim Kardashian claims she's a 'fun and playful' but 'strict' mother

Kim Kardashian is proud to be a strict mother.
The 33-year-old reality TV star and her husband Kanye West recently celebrated their daughter North's first birthday. Kim's sister Kourtney is expecting her third child with her partner Scott Disick, a sibling for Mason, four, and 23-month-old Penelope and is famously relaxed when it comes to parenting. Kim takes a different style, explaining she thinks Kourtney will have to have a rethink once baby number three arrives.
"I am a strict mother. I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib," Kim told MailOnline exclusively.
"Like Kourtney’s style is where her kids sleep in bed with her, so especially with the third baby coming – they’re going to need a bigger bed or they’re going to need some other rules.
"And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But… I’m not crazy strict."
Kim comes from a famously large family and there has been speculation about when she and Kanye will add to their brood. She insists it will happen, although she isn't sure quite when yet. The brunette star had a difficult pregnancy with North and it's previously been claimed she isn't ready to go through that again.
"I grew up with a lot of siblings so I know what that’s like. I don’t know if I would really follow in my mum’s footsteps and have six; that’s a little crazy," she laughed. "I don’t know how they did it – they were in their 20s and they weren’t really thinking right!
"I like a big family and I would definitely like one more and see how that goes."
Kim and Kanye are planning a birthday party for North this weekend, as they've turned the whole week into a celebration for the tot.
The newly-married couple have both been in France this week, with Kanye appearing at the Cannes Lion event and Kim hosting a party with MainOnline also in Cannes. The star was quizzed on how she manages to fit so much into her life, what with being a mother, having clothes lines and shooting reality programme Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Prioritising is what gets her through, as well as finding time for herself.
Kim makes sure she exercises every morning as it makes her feel her best and also takes time to see her friends, so she still has a life away from being a mom.
"The beauty of having a reality show – especially as we film at the house – is that the baby’s there. So I actually get to be with her – as opposed to if I had a job in an office, where I couldn’t be in the same room with her while I was working," she said.
"So I actually feel really lucky to have that advantage to spend so much time with her. I get to see her every single day. I’m there with the baby – it’s kind of perfect. It’s the best job."
The star attended the party in a Balmain floor-length dress which was white and made out of rope
and was happy to discuss her relationship with Kanye. The pair got married in Italy last month and Kim is determined being husband and wife won't change much between them.
"I feel as though we’ll always be in the honeymoon period. We always say we really like to treat each other like it’s our birthday," she gushed. "I try to treat him like it’s his birthday every single day. I think we’ll always be like that."
