Timothy White/E!(NEW YORK) — Kim Kardashian insists there will be no free ride for her daughter North. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star tells the London Evening Standard North will have to pay her own way when she gets older, just like she did.
The 34-year-old reality star reveals that in spite of her family’s wealth, she worked at a clothing store while she was in school. If she wanted designer clothes, Kim had to save up her money, and she’d like Nori to “work for what she wants” too.
“I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me. I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them,” she tells the U.K. newspaper.
“We didn’t get anything [from our parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save,” she adds.
Kardashian admits that comes as a surprise to most people.
“I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be,'” Kardashian recalls, adding, “And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is’. She will have to work for what she wants.”
In fact, North’s mom is already putting her daughter to work. The 16-month-old has already started modeling for Vogue and CR Fashion Book.
When asked what she thought North might do when she’s older, Kardashian responded, “I don’t know. She loves fashion. Maybe she’ll be a designer. Who knows? It’s too early to tell.”
