Kim Kardashian says she wants more privacy now she's expecting a baby.
The 32-year-old reality TV star, who is set to become a parent with Kanye West, says her priorities have changed.
Kim's boyfriend Kanye revealed during a concert last month that the couple were expecting their first child together.
Now that the word is out, she says her motherly instincts have made her pull back from being so open about her personal life.
"I think that definitely kicks in where you're like, 'OK, I have to go in protect mode' and as ironic as it sounds, you live your life on a reality show but then when you grow up... certain things change your life that make you want to be more private and this is definitely one of them," she said.
The couple went public with their relationship in March.
Kim married basketball player Kris Humphries in August 2011 and their divorce is not finalised.
Kim says she is influenced by her rapper boyfriend's approach to privacy - the 35-year-old rarely gives interviews.
"When you spend time with someone, you learn things from them, so I see what (his) views are in wanting to be private, so that's a choice we make together as a family just in how we're gonna raise our kid," she said.
"... But my personal experience of having really open relationships on the show, I've done that, and for me I feel like I got really scrutinised when people didn't maybe understand my decisions at some point, so I feel like after that experience I've become more private more so than just like Kanye's views or anything."
