Mother-to-be Kim Kardashian took to her website
on Mother's Day to open up about her pregnancy and thank the special women in her life for helping her prepare for the upcoming birth of her child with rapper Kanye West. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians
star also confessed that she's both "nervous and excited" about becoming a first-time parent.
Thanking her grandmother, momager Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, Kim writes:
"Mother's Day is one of my favorite holidays because it's a special day to honor my role model and best friend. As I'm counting the days until I finally get to be a mother, I'm a bit nervous and anxious but also excited knowing that I learned from the very best."
The 32-year-old reality star added: "My mom is a strong and ambitious career woman that despite her busy schedule and the millions of things she has going on, she still manages to put family first and continues to look out for us every day. I'm honored to follow in her footsteps and make her proud like I am of her. And also my wonderful grandma MJ, such a strong and inspirational woman in my life! I love you so much!"
To her older sister Kourtney, 34, who has two children, Mason and Penelope, with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, Kim said:
"My sister, best friend, and mentor has also taught me so much about motherhood from being the most incredible mom to Mason and Penelope. She is super woman ...and I am so lucky to have her as my guide and confidant as I too become a mother."
