The 22-year-old model discussed her newborn niece, anxiety and fame in a conversation with Lana Del Rey in 'Elle.'
Kendall Jenner never thought her littler sister would be the first to have a baby.
In a cover story for Elle, the 22-year-old model chats with singer Lana Del Rey about her newborn niece, their anxiety, fame and their love lives. On the subject of Stormi, who was born on Feb. 1 to Jenner's 20-year-old sister, Kylie, and her rapper boyfriend, Travis Scott, she says it was all "a bit weird."
“It’s obviously a bit weird that your little sister is having a baby before you," Kendall told the magazine. "I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful.”
But she said that Stormi has brought the sisters closer together.
"We’ve always been very close, but we would butt heads all the time," she continued. "This has made her a bit more loving toward me.”
Kendall has previously talked about the possibility of having her own children, but told Vogue in March that she's not quite ready yet.
"I want to have kids, but at, like, 28 or 29," she said at the time.
Kendall also spoke a bit about her ongoing issues with anxiety, which have even made an appearance on Keeping Up With the Kardashians with her worried mother offering to take her to the hospital at one point. She tells Elle that publicly acknowledging her anxiety has actually led to a lot of support.
“It’s interesting; ever since I said something about being anxious, a lot of people in the spotlight have come to me, being like, ‘Oh my God, me too!’ There’s this community. I take what they do to help themselves and piece it together to find what helps me," she said.
Jenner has cited two things that help her to stay centered: transcendental meditation and nighttime Netflix streaming of the hilarious Canadian mockumentary Trailer Park Boys.
On the subject of love, Kendall was far more circumspect (as she has always been about dating). She's been romantically linked to NBA player Blake Griffin after being seen cheering him on at games and spending her 22nd birthday with him.
The Elle interview didn't delve into her "friend" in Michigan, as she has alluded to the Detroit Piston, but did touch on the topic of dating musicians as both Del Rey and Kendall have done. Kendall has dated A$AP Rocky and Harry Styles.
“I consider myself lucky,” she said of dating musicians. “I’ve never had too bad of an experience. It’s really cool to see someone immerse themselves into something so deeply. And, I don’t know, the majority of my core friend group is all very creative. I look at them, and I’m like, I wish I could be more like you and blurt out my feelings on a piece of paper and make it into a song.”
The full interview with Kendall hits newsstands on May 22.
