Kendall Jenner tries to keep things as private as possible when it comes to her personal affairs.

The 19-year-old supermodel and Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star has been romantically linked to a number of male celebrities of late including Lewis Hamilton and Nick Jonas.

Although some of her famous relatives are happy to be public about their relationships, Kendall would rather keep things under wraps.

"It's not always easy, but I don't know, I just like to keep my private life private," she told ET Online. "I try my best, but at the same time, I try not to let being out with someone affect my everyday life. Like, if I want to go out and grab a smoothie with a friend who's a male, I'm not gonna let the paparazzi stop me from doing that and living my life and just being a normal person.

"I try to keep things as private as I can, but when it comes to a point, it's just not a big deal.”

Kendall’s older half-sibling Kim Kardashian is currently expecting her second child with her husband Kanye West.

And Kendall learned of the huge news in the most awkward manner.

"I was at Coachella when Kim told me and she FaceTimed me, and I was in, like, a supermarket, and I was like, 'Shhh be quiet, there's people around!'" she recalled. "'I know you're trying to keep this on the down low right now and I'm in the supermarket!'"

Kim already shares two-year-old daughter North West with Kanye.

The toddler has appeared at both of her father’s fashion shows and Kendall is unsure whether North will adopt a rag trade career in the future like the rest of the clan.

"I don't know,” Kendall said of whether North is heading in the fashion direction. "I think that she's definitely gonna have a life of, just like, awesomeness. She's definitely gonna do some stuff like that. I can't see it any other way, that face is just too good.

“She's just beautiful, it's ridiculous. She always steals the show."
