It seems like everyone has an opinion about the Kardashian/Jenner family—most of them negative.

I, on the other hand, adore them.

It’s less about the money, fame, makeup lines, strange baby names, and revolving door of controversy, and more about how they love and support each other. Their fierce loyalty to family echoes the way I was raised.

It doesn’t hurt that I am also one of three loud, opinionated, dark-haired sisters who would do anything for each other.

In 2017, I was lucky enough to see pregnancy and motherhood through the eyes of both my sisters. I watched them grow tiny humans in their bellies. I saw their bodies change and felt those babies move inside them. I grew more attached to my sisters—these people who are the keepers of my memories—but I also discovered what it means to love someone you haven’t met yet.

Which is why I spent 11 minutes today crying while watching the video Kylie Jenner posted to her Instagram account announcing the birth of her baby girl.

Kylie chose not to confirm or post about her pregnancy over the past nine months, but this video serves as a tribute to both her child and her family. Take away the famous name and what you see is love and loyalty and the beautiful beginnings of motherhood.

For anyone who is a parent or longs to be a parent, this video may just change your mind about the Kardashians—or anyone else you may have judged as ungrateful, unmindful, or unlike you.

You are Kardashian obsessed.

A big thanks to everyone who took the time to read this <3 I made it clear in the title who this article was about, so it's disappointing (but also not surprising) to me that people who are clearly not fans of the Kardashians chose to click on the article and then want to complain about having read it. Elephant doesn't shy away from topics; we're open to hearing what people have to say about pop culture, politics, equal rights, climate change, love, family, wellness, yoga, and anything else--as long as it has a mindful angle. We are not a place where you can hide from what's happening in the world; we aim to represent what's happening in the world, and to do it with kindness. What you choose to click on is up to you.

I liked this article! And how beautiful-- a video entitled "To Our Daughter". This video is for the baby! How can anyone have negative thoughts about a BABY?! I agree with the author, take away the famous name and what you have is a young woman surrounded by love.

Parody? Mockumentary? Unsubscribe? Yes, the third option.

What a low society we have now. I'm so sick of this family I could dry hurl. Why even write an article on such inconsequential dribble? They're all a freak show which I can do without.

Cindy Heisler Feb 6, 2018 7:54pm

There’s two minutes of my life I’ll never get back. No offense to the author but on elephant? Really??! Yeah. No.

Katman Katz, I couldn't agree with you more! Unbelievably Disappointing! Enough for me to question this site. This is so irrelevant.This goes to show you that Writers and other Artists are not all insightful, genuine, and conscious people. Quite disgusting. I refuse and do not agree with the slut shaming by calling these women prostitutes. But they are a real example of the scourge of what currently, American culture is. "Change your mind". Seriously young lady??? Not in a billion years! Also as a "Woke" and conscious, Feminist, black woman, the Kardashians and the black men who froth after them are VERY much a part of the misogynoir that black women are suffering under in the black commmunity. Starting with Colorism. And there is so much more nonsense and patheticness in these women's celebrity. Nothing. Absolutely nothing to emulate.

Danielle Trauth-Jurman Feb 6, 2018 3:49pm

I could’ve done without this one.

Katman Katz Feb 6, 2018 3:25pm

It is extremely disappointing to see this site promote the cultural fraud of the Kardashians. Truly. The only “changing your mind” that should be occurring is that you probably do not already feel enough contempt for them. This site, and these articles, should at least be one refuge from the constant deluge of the vapid, materialistic marketing insanity of those prostitutes.
