North and Saint West won't be getting their own social media accounts anytime soon – at least that's what their mom, Kim Kardashian West, says!
The reality star was a guest at the #BlogHer16 exposition at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles on Friday, where she got candid on what it's really like living and raising two children with her rapper husband, Kanye West.
"You'll notice on weekends that I don't post as much [on social media] because I'm with my kids. I'm really protective of my life with them," Kim, 35, dished. "You might see them on Keeping Up With the Kardashians a little bit, but [there's] no real stories about them. Selfishly, I like that I can bring my kids to work. If I'm filming, I'm not going to say stop, I just tell [the crew sometimes] please don't get faces. They're there, but there's never stories around the children."
When it comes to social media, she's even more protective. While 3-year-old Nori has made a few appearances on Kim's Snapchat and Instagram over the past year, the world hasn't seen much of her and Kanye's son until recently.
Kim explained to the crowd that when Saint -- now eight months old -- was born, people accused her of lying about having another child.
"In this world, it's like if you didn't post it, it doesn't exist," she said. "People literally thought Saint didn't exist -- they thought I had a whole fake baby because I wasn't posting about [him]. It was ridiculous."
Luckily, Kim and Kanye are able to laugh about the craziness that comes with being a high-profile celebrity couple.
"I'm very open and he's very private in the business," she revealed. "I've taught him to be more open, and he's taught me how to be more private."
Kim is also a firm believer in learning by example, and hopes that North and Saint will take on her and Kanye's "anything is possible" attitude.
"I hope that my kids learn to understand that they really can do anything they want to do, and to always be kind," the Selfish author explained. "You can never underestimate kindness."
"In as abnormal of a world that they're raised in, that they are good people and live just as normal as possible," Kim continued. "I hope that they are outspoken and follow their truths. And for any mistakes, I hope they see no one is perfect. People make mistakes, I've made a ton and they've been public, but you can get through anything. Try not to make the same mistake twice. Learn and grow from your mistakes."
So when will Kim's kids be able to experience social media on their own?
"NEVER! Just kidding," Kim joked. "I don't know. Some people have accounts for their babies, I don't think I'll do that. I think they'll have to ask me and have a conversation about that."
"I [kind of] went through that with [my youngest sisters] Kylie and Kendall," she continued. "They wanted Facebook accounts and [me, Khloe and Kourtney] had their passwords and spied on them for my mom."
"I'll be overprotective to an extent," she added, "creeping on their accounts all the time, but I think I actually know Kendall and Kylie so much more from watching their Snapchats."
Although Kim won't let little Nori create her own YouTube page just yet, it looks like the toddler is already dipping her toes into the digital world!
"She always wants to watch YouTubers," Kardashian adorably gushed. "You know that one with the kids, where they open up all the gifts? My daughters obsessed -- she just watches the toy tutorials!"
