As matriarch of the Kardashian dynasty, Kris Jenner is on a mission to conquer television, fashion, cosmetics, and social media, among other ventures that come her family’s way.
This month, the 61-year-old mother of Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Robert, Kendall and Kylie is the cover star of DuJour. She is talking for the first time since welcoming her sixth grandchild, Dream Kardashian, daughter of Rob and Blac Chyna.
The family, not shy about cameras, decided to partake in the “the mannequin challenge” while Chyna was in the delivery room. Jenner, who took part in the social media phenomenon, reveals, “It was Chyna and her girlfriends who said, ‘Let's do this,’ and I thought that was such a great distraction. I was always so nervous in the delivery room. So I gave her a lot of credit, because she was so excited and nervous, but still wanted to do something to make everybody laugh!”
Once the youngest Kardashian made her way into the world on November 10, grandma was in love. "The baby is so fabulous,” says Kris. She also credited Rob, saying, “He’s so nurturing, and he’s such a caregiver and such a sweet man. It’s really been such a joy to watch him go through this.”
Each year, the Kardashian-Jenner family looks forward to their themed Christmas card. “The holidays are our big thing. We have a lot of traditions that we celebrate year after year, and believe me if I forget ONE thing, the kids let me know right away!”
When looking back on 2016 and her biggest accomplishments with her children, Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics might top the list, with must-have products such as the Kylie Lip Kit selling out in a matter of minutes. They are changing the cosmetic industry as we know it. "She’s unbelievable. When she focuses, there’s nobody like her,” the proud mom says of Kylie.
Jenner has certainly instilled a good work ethic into her kids. “You just can’t build something and hand it to someone else to run,” she insists. “You have to have your hand in every pot… and really keep stirring.”
