What is it really like to raise a child in the spotlight? Julia Restoin-Roitfeld sat down with (arguably) the most famous mother in the world, Kim Kardashian, to discuss everything from balancing family and career to traveling the world with baby North. Read on for the scoop!

Romy & The Bunnies: What do you love the most about being a mother?
Kim Kardashian: "I love being a mom; It's the most rewarding feeling! I really love every phase. Just the way my daughter laughs with me, all of the small things in life you appreciate!"

What do you find the most challenging in being a mother?
"I took a hiatus after I had the baby, and found it challenging to start working again because I didn't want to spend any time away, but you adjust and prioritize, and just figure it out."

What is your favorite thing to do together with North? What would be, for example, a perfect day?
"My absolute favorite thing is taking a nap with her. We cuddle and fall asleep holding each other. It's my favorite time to just snuggle with her."

What has motherhood taught you most?
"Motherhood has taught me that family is everything and not much else matters! I was brought up to value family, but it's a whole new meaning when it is your own family. All of the small things that used to affect me, I just don't have time to bother with it anymore."

What tip would you give to any busy working mom to balance career and motherhood?
"It is an adjustment trying to balance a career and motherhood, for sure, but the key is to prioritize. You become more selective and work on projects that are so meaningful because you want every other waking moment spent with your family. You have to remember, though, to make time for yourself. If you feel good, you will be happy in your career and family life, and everyone is happy!"

We all love tips for traveling with a baby, and it seems North has already traveled the world! What is your main tip to make traveling with your baby as smooth as possible?
"Jet lag can be tough to adjust to, especially for a baby. I think it's important to travel with the necessities to make sure your baby gets a nap on the flight, and whenever necessary!"
