Kim Kardashian was dubbed “America’s New First Lady” in her latest magazine cover photo shoot that also featured her daughter North.
Inside the publication, the mother-daughter duo posed for photos in what appeared to look like the White House. They also both participated in their own, separate interviews.
Kaia Gerber, Britney Spears’ sons Sean and Jayden Federline and cousin Penelope Disick interviewed the 4-year-old.
While North answered more light-hearted questions, her mom opened up about the differences between her public and home life, raising mixed-race children and constantly being underestimated.
Read on for more details on their interview and to see the photos from the cover shoot.
Kim Kardashian Channels Jackie Kennedy
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast member embraces the same style as Jackie O for the shoot while wearing a white skirt suit and elbow-length gloves. Her hair was styled into a retro blowout bob.
She shared a black-and-white snap from the shoot on Instagram where she poses with North laying on her lap. The toddler wore a black dress with her hair in high buns.
“This photo shoot I will cherish forever as such an amazing memory with my daughter,” Kardashian wrote next to the photo.

Despite their public lifestyle, Kardashian revealed that their life is “normal” at home.
"When I'm out and people call North's name, that's when it's weird for me. She lives such a normal life, believe it or not, at home," she said. "I try to make sure we have set meals at home, to keep everything as normal as possible."prevnext
Kim Kardashian on Raising Mixed-Race Children
The mother of two also opened up raising her two mixed-race children with husband Kanye West.
"I'm very conscious of it," she said. "Kanye always has his family around and people who look like my daughter — that's important to me. She's obsessed with her 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!'"
The couple also shares 20-month-old son Saint.
In North’s interview she revealed her favorite type of pizza is cheese, her favorite song from her dad is “Amazing,” and her favorite color is “rainbow.”prevnext
How She Balances Motherhood and Work
Kardashian then spoke candidly about balancing motherhood and work life.
"We have strict rules about the kids [on KUWTK]," she said. "Some seasons they're not on at all. Some seasons they're on a little bit, just to show a bit of personality, although there are never story lines about them. But then there's social media, on which I've always been really open."
She has learned plenty about over sharing and boundaries throughout her ten years of being on a reality television show.
"I look back at some of the episodes in the earlier seasons and think, 'I can't believe I shared that,'" Kardashian said before mentioning her October 2016 robbery in Paris. "But I also think that going through the motions of something like the aftermath of the robbery, or situations that most people might not understand, there are some people who might really have gone through that. I think about them. I feel like I came out of that a better person."prevnext
Don't Underestimate Kim Kardashian
During the interview, Kardashian also shut down her haters who believe she doesn’t have any discernible talent.
"If I'm so not talented, if I do nothing, then how is my career my reality?" she mused. "And I poke fun at it, like when I was on the cover of Forbes, I posted the hashtag #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent. I don't mind being underestimated because it does feel me."
"You can say a lot of things about me, but you cannot say I don't work hard," the Selfish author continued. "I don't sing. I don't dance. I don't act. But I am not lazy."0comments
Whenever the reality TV personality needs advice about her career, she turns to her husband.
"I usually go to Kanye for advice about my brand, my life, my image," the E! star said. "But if it's other drama, I go to one of my best friends, Tracy [Nguyen Romulus]. She used to be Kanye's publicist, and I met her 12 years ago."prev
