North and Saint West


Celebrities Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are the parents of two multiracial children and soon to be three. Kim and Kanye married in May of 2014. North West was born in June of 2013 and their son Saint West was born two years later in December of 2015. They are now expecting their third child via surrogate. Kim began considering a surrogate after doctors told her it would be too risky for her to get pregnant again. Kim and Kanye are raising their children to be aware of their biracial identity. Kim’s Kardashian’s father is Armenian and her mother English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Dutch. Kanye West is African American. In the September issue of Interview Magazine Kim said “Kanye always has his family around and people who look like my daughter-that’s important to me. She’s obsessed with curly hair, and if she finds someone who has the same hair, she runs to them and is like, “You have curly hair like me?’ And we get to talk about it. We also talk about it with my niece Penelope, because she and North look really different, but they’re best friends and they’re together all the time.” Kim also stated “We want to raise our kids to be really aware. I think that’s all you can do. The more you talk about things and keep them out in the open, the more they won’t be taboo, kids are really so open. They say anything. So if you educate them, then they feel empowered.”
