Her little sister may have the most liked baby annoucement of all time, but Khloé Kardashian's baby bump is earning plenty of Instagram hearts, too. Of course, the most love for the bump is coming from Khloé herself.

Now 29 weeks along in her first pregnancy, the Good American co-founder looks amazing holding her bump in a recent pic posted by her makeup artist and hair stylist, and proves pregnancy hasn’t changed her status as a style icon.

What has changed is her outlook, the 33-year-old told Britain's ITV. "I think it puts so many things into perspective," she explained. "I mean, people say once you have a baby, your life just begins and you're going to realize everything you were doing is nonsense. But honestly, I'm so happy that this is happening in my life right now.


Khloé revealed that prior to finding out she was pregnant, she had briefly considered having a child the same way her sister Kim eventually did. "I mean, I thought about surrogacy at one point but then it just didn't cross my mind," she said.

Kim recently welcomed daughter Chicago West thanks to surrogacy, and even more recently, Khloé became an aunt again as little sister Kylie gave birth to Stormi Webster on February 1.

With all the babies coming into her life, Khloé says she feels so ready to be a mom.“I feel like the timing really is perfect,” Khloé told ITV. “I mean, it's just going to be so exciting everything that's about to happen."

The timing is too perfect, and we can’t wait to see what Khloé will be wearing in a few weeks. I think the all-white outfits may not be in such heavy rotation once the baby comes.

Motherhood is a practice in learning, growing and loving more than you ever thought possible. Even as a "veteran" mama of four young sons and one newly adopted teenager, Jalyssa Richardson enthusiastically adapts to whatever any given day has in store—a skill she says she's refined through the years.

Here's what just one day in her life looks like:

Jalyssa says she learned to embrace agility throughout her motherhood journey. Here's more from this incredible mama of five boys.

What is the most challenging part of your day as a mom of five?

Time management! I want to meet each of the boys' individual needs—plus show up for myself—but I often feel like someone gets overlooked.

What's the best part of being a mom of five?

The little moments of love. The hugs, the kisses, the cuddles, the smiles... they all serve as little reminders that I am blessed and I'm doing okay.

Are there misconceptions about raising boys?

There are so many misconceptions about raising boys. I think the biggest one is that boys don't have many emotions and they're just so active all the time. My boys display many emotions and they also love to be sweet and cuddly a lot of the time.

What do you think would surprise people the most about being a mom of five?

How much I enjoy it. I never knew I wanted to be a mom until I was pregnant with my first. My desire only grew and the numbers did! I am surprised with every single baby as my capacity to love and nurture grows. It's incredible.

How do you create balance and make time for yourself?

Balance for me looks like intentional planning and scheduling because I never want my boys to feel like they aren't my first priority, but it is extremely difficult. What I try to do is not fit it all into one day. I have work days because motherhood is my first priority. I fit in segments of self-care after the kids' bedtime so I don't grow weary.

What's the biggest lesson you have learned from motherhood?

I have learned that sacrifice is actually beautiful. I was terrified of the selflessness motherhood would require, but I've grown so much through the sacrifice. There is nothing better than living for something bigger than myself.

When did you first feel like a mom? How has your motherhood evolved?

I first felt like a mom when I was pregnant with my first son and I intentionally chose to change my eating habits so my body could be strong and healthy for him. I didn't have to think twice—I just did what I thought would be best for him. That decision being so effortless made me realize I was made for motherhood.

My perspective has changed with each baby as I've realized motherhood doesn't have to be one-size-fits-all. With my first son, I was a by-the-book mama and it was so stressful. With each baby, I have felt more freedom and it has made motherhood so much more beautiful. I have evolved into the mother that they need, I am perfect for these boys.
