Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner gave off concerned, yet awkward mum vibes on a recent episode of The Kardashians, where she suggests to daughter Kendall Jenner that she freezes her eggs. At the ripe old age of 26.
“Maybe it’s time to have baby,” Kris says. Unsurprisingly, we see Kendall full on choke on her coffee at this rather out-of-nowhere comment.
Kendall immediately calls the conversation “uncomfortable”, going on to say: “You keep telling me I’m not getting any younger, but guess what Mom? It’s my life.” Kris then calls an obstetrician-gynecologist during the scene, who clarifies that the earlier Kendall freezes her eggs, the better. Intense.
She also asks Kendall: “Are you sure it’s your life?” So awkward. The matriarch also predicted that Kendall would be the next of her daughters to have children, despite Kendall’s comments.
Fans have taken to Twitter to voice their discomfort about this. One tweeted: “Not this VERY uncomfortable scene of Kris Jenner like pretty much pressuring Kendall Jenner to have a baby really hard to watch honestly.”
Another tweeted: “Kris has 700 grandkids and she bothering Kendall”. It’s worth pointing out that Kendall is the only Kardashian sister to not have children. She is currently dating NBA player Devin Booker for the last year and a bit, and they seem perfectly happy. Devin doesn’t feature heavily on the reality TV show, but we’re totally here for our girl having a private life.
Kendall is our queen of keeping it real, in a life that feels completely unreal. At her sister Kourtney’s Italian gothic wedding, Kylie shared an amazing video of Kendall struggling to climb the stairs in her gown and Birkenstocks. Relatable struggle.
But in all seriousness, we understand that Kris’ encouragement towards egg freezing is likely to be coming from a place of concern, especially as Kourtney Kardashian and her new husband Travis Barker are reportedly having fertility issues.
However, a woman’s choice to have a child is her’s. Period.
