Kourtney Kardashian was only in the hospital for 3 hours while giving birth

I just read Us Weekly’s full cover story with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, and I came away from it… kind of emotional. Unexpected, right? But Kourtney and Scott both came across really well. Surprisingly well. I’m just going to do some highlights from the piece, because I know you don’t really care THAT much:

*Penelope weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces at birth. Kourtney is really funny as she describes how everyone was making her nervous about going into labor: “I was trying to coordinate my birth with their schedules. Scott and I went on a walk and I started having contractions.”

*The delivery was super-quick and easy. Scott says, “Her delivery was quick. In the months before she gave birth, we would pray that she’d have a good one, and she did. Kourtney’s mother was supersupportive. It was cute to see her hold Kourtney’s hand and get her through it.”

*Kourtney was only at the hospital for THREE HOURS! She says: “We didn’t stay overnight at the hospital – I was only in the hospital for about three hours total.”

*Kourtney pulled Penelope out, just like she pulled Mason out.

*They haven’t decided if they’ll show this birth on TV. But Scott taped footage, and some other people were recording too.

*Penelope has “Scott’s cleft chin, she skin tone is lighter than Mason’s. But she has the Kardashian lashes!” Penelope also has a “little raspy voice.”

*Mason is “in love” with his baby sister. Scott says, “He wanted to smell her and give her a kiss on the head and touch her nose and touch her ears.”

*Khloe is “the baby-whisperer” according to Kourt. Khloe is really good with her niece. Which is so sad, because Khloe wants a baby so badly.

*Scott and Kourtney still aren’t sleeping in the same room. Kourtney sleeps with the newborn, Scott sleeps in the guest room or with Mason.

*Scott hasn’t changed Penelope’s diapers yet, but he has a good reason: “My son is almost 3, and I don’t mind changing his diapers. I’m just not comfortable doing it when the baby is that small. One wrong move and you could break the child’s bone. At least my son can tell me, ‘Dad, you’re doing it wrong.’ With a little baby, it’s scary.”

*Scott’s “push present” to Kourtney: “He gave me diamond stud earrings. I’ve wanted them for so long.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

There’s even more stuff in there, like Kourtney saying she doesn’t pay attention to the rumors that Scott parties too much, and Scott also says (in a nicer way) that Kourt turned into a massive, moody bitch during this pregnancy, but now that she gave birth, she’s back to normal. They end it by agreeing that neither of them is thinking about getting married at this point, and that what they have going on is working for them. I’ll admit it – this was actually a really good read! Shocking.

    Their three year old is still in nappies? Toilet train him OMG!

    • Rachel says:

      It’s not always as easy as that… I guess I’m a bit sensitive, though, ’cause my son’s 3 1/2 and still in pull-ups. He’s autistic, though, so it’s probably a bit different.

      • Isa says:

        I think that is a bit different, Rachel. Don’t beat yourself up.

      • Rachel says:

        Thanks, Isa. It’s tough because I feel like he should be there already. It’s just that unless he’s nude from the waist down, he doesn’t understand that he needs to use the potty. If he’s in underwear or pants he will just go. It’s very frustrating!

      • Canda says:

        I babysit an autistic boy who is almost SIX and he is still in pull-ups. He just doesn’t get it, something is just not clicking in his brain about the urge to go should be followed by potty time. I think he just doesn’t pay attention, he’s always immersed in his computer and zones completely out. He’s not aware of his body and what’s going on… I wouldn’t beat yourself up over it, most autistic kids I’ve dealt with have toilet training issues.

      • Mia C. says:

        Rachel, don’t feel bad about your son not being potty-trained. My son has high functioning classic autism and he was not potty-trained till he was 6. I think they just do not “hear” what is going on in their bodies till they are ready.
        I was so self-conscious sending him to school in pull-ups, but the staff was totally used to it! Then when he was 6, he found a big Lego toy he reeeeealllly wanted and he earned $2 every day he used the potty and in 2 months he was potty-trained. (Only externally motivated, this one!) He is 8 and still has the occasional accident- holds it till it’s too late sometimes because he isn’t paying attention, and he’s not night trained- his meds make that difficult.
        Don’t beat yourself up. I’ve found most autistic kids will do things on their own schedule, no matter what you want them to do…We would try to potty train and he would get upset and then we would let it go for a few months and try again until he decided he was ready. But if they aren’t interested, it’s a no go.

    • katie2 says:

      You’re really shocked that a two year old is still in diapers? My son just turned 4 a few months ago and we finally stopped (at the beginning of the year) putting pull-ups on him. It’s not easy and we started potty training a few months before his 3rd birthday. When he started pre-school last year, his teachers requested that he wear diapers/pull-ups if he wasn’t fully “trained” until he got used to the new environment and schedule, since major changes can sometimes cause a child to take a step back in terms of using the potty (which did happen; he didn’t like using the potty at school for the first week). It’s not about when the parents are ready, it’s about when the child is ready and not all toddlers are ready as soon as they turn 2.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        And it’s also a “control” issue. (I learnt that with the oldest. This ain’t my first rodeo.) Yesterday, Toddles (turned 3 at the end of May) sat on his potty FULLY CLOTHED and, after a few minutes, announced “I made pee-pee in the potty.”

        Well, no…no he didn’t. He made pee-pee ON the potty, in his pants, because he didn’t pull them down. He then proceeded to strip from the waist down, grab a book, and refuse to get off the potty.

        I finally decided he was fine and could sit there as long as he wanted, so I went to wash some dishes. And wouldn’t you just know that that was when he decided to get into the cabinet under my sink and spray down my bathroom with the cleanser with bleach. (This kid. I’m telling you.)

      • Jessie says:

        I agree, I can’t see how anyone would be a shocked a child isn’t potty trained by 3, especially a boy. Boys are notoriously harder to train. Mine will be 3 next month and he has NO interest in it at all. He is also thru a very independent/I’ll do what I want phase and I think that has something to do with it. His pediatrician told me a year ago most boys aren’t fully trained until 3.5 sometimes 4 years old and EVERY child is different.

    • shewolf says:

      I agree, that is ridiculous.

    • Cin9009 says:

      I don’t usually comment but people really get ridiculous when it comes to potty training. My two older girls were not potty trained until after 3. So what? All kids go at their own pace. I encourage but don’t push because they all get it eventually. People need to relax.

    • GiGi says:

      It really is individual. My older two were trained before 18 months – my son trained himself! My baby is almost 3 and, while she does use the toilet occasionally, we’ve been traveling so much that she’s still in diapers.

      Also, with boys it can be an actual issue of physical maturity. Some boys just don’t have that level of physical control until much later. I like to judge the Kardashians in many issues, but not this one.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Boys and oldest tend to be more difficult to train. Toddlers with new babies in the house tend to take a little longer, or if they’re already trained frequently regress because the new baby gets to wear diapers. I was lucky that my son didn’t like being ‘dirty’ so he trained himself before 3yrs old. But that’s pretty unusual. I have a nephew who’s 4 1/2 and still isn’t trained, which I’m really trying to understand and not judge, but he’s also huge for his age and I can’t imagine changing the diapers of a 50lb kid because he refuses to stop playing to go potty.

    • Bodhi says:

      That is par for the course these days. Docs etc recommend 3 as the time to potty train

      • Isa says:

        They may be holding off until he gets used to his new sibling. Regression tends to happen when things get changed up. My daughte was potty trained several months before my son was born and she started having accidents right in front of the potty. It only lasted about a week but it was a little frustrating.
        Also we’re a nation that relies on disposable diapers that keep your baby from feeling wet. Even pull ups suck. I cloth diaper my son and I hope that will help some!

    • Bodhi says:

      @ Isa, I CD my son too. It saves tons of money, is better for the environment, & is actually healthier for the baby

  2. gee says:

    Out of the Kardashian group, I like the Kourtney, Scott, Khloe, and Lamar. I admit it! I CANT HELP IT.

  3. Hannah says:

    Just thinking the same. Everyone at their own pace but seriously?! My son has been on the “big kids pot” since a month before his 2nd birthday.

  4. Aussie girl says:

    This women delivers her own baby. She makes the whole thing look so easy!! The bedroom sitch is a little odd to me. But hey whatever works for them. I just hope they ” push the beds together’ once in a while. Lol

  5. Marianne says:

    I just don’t get the whole “push present” thing. I mean what else are you supposed to do? Keep the baby inside of you?? Of course you’re gonna push. Besides, shouldn’t the child be the gift.

  6. mk yarwood says:

    As a mom, it pisses me off that so many basic functions and realities of humanity require the word ‘training’. Why are we training them? Are they monkeys? Better to SHOW THEM what needs to be done. Also, some kids don’t do well with pottying out in the world, and are just fine at home. ‘Nice’ as this read is or whatever, this a spoiled, lazy family who only wants things done the easy way.

  7. Amelia says:

    I don’t want to know about this family anymore. Whatever they have going on should be their business. Isn’t it time they start keeping their private life private.

  8. lassie says:

    ‘Scott’s “push present” to Kourtney: “He gave me diamond stud earrings. I’ve wanted them for so long.”’

    Like she couldn’t buy them with her own famewhore money? How much are diamond studs? Somebody forgot a gift and ran to a kiosk in the mall.

    • BabySwans says:

      Wow you don’t know much about nice jewlery do you? You sound like my high schoolers. “Miss I lost my diamond ring! Help me find it!”. When in reality they are talking about a cheap cubic zirconia ring from a mall kiosk.

      Real diamond studs are expensive. Besides it’s always nice to receive jewlery as a gift than buying it yourself.

      • swack says:

        She could of bought those diamond studs several times over – she has the money to do it. And yes it is nice when jewelry is bought for you, but for her to state “I’ve wanted them for so long” makes it look like she can’t afford them on her own.

    • Kolby says:

      I wouldn’t necessarily classify Kourtney as “famewhorey.” Not nearly on the same level as Kim or their mom, anyway. She’s been running a business for years now, since long before they had a reality show. She’s no genius, but she’s a pretty successful businesswoman in her own right.

      • idk says:

        Yeah but how well were her stores doing before her sister’s sex tape and family fame? I remember Khloe saying the sales went high for Dash after their reality show started airing…and Kourtney’s first store called “Smooch” closed down over 2 years ago. They pay people to do the majority of the work, so how involved are any of them?

  9. Holl says:

    wow an woman had a baby. NEXT STORY.

    (im done with the karTRASHians)

  10. idk says:

    Of course they are going to show the birth on the show, come on look what family we are talking about !

    And of course it was an easy delivery, the Kardashians get everything easy in life, they don’t know a thing about hard work, even when it comes to delivering babies lol.

  11. RHONYC says:

    what i love is, how their toddler son has a ‘binky’ in his mouth but his
    ‘too-cool-for-school’ douche, ahem, i mean dad can’t hold his hand walking down steep stairs.

    like, wtf? :roll:

  12. anon says:

    I think K”s are on there way out. There definatley is a decline in popularity & seems to be the media keeping them alive & or tabloids. IF most comments like mine are negative they far out weigh the postive for this family so the conclusion is media is manipulating there popularity. SHOCK.. lol Look at that one pic of Kourt she was huge huge & nothing negative at all most media was accepting while other pregnant women same size before birth were crucified. POINT TAKEN

  13. Stacie says:

    I’m so Happy for Kourtney and Scott . I love the Kardashians ! : )

  14. Ally says:

    “…But she has the Kardashian lashes!”

    Ummmm….looks like the K girls wear the fake ones. Cute kids, though.

  15. Bodhi says:

    I didn’t stay overnight either. If you don’t need to, then why bother?

  16. Blue says:

    How many people do you need to record a birth. Obviously they are going to put it on their show. Isn’t 3 (almost) a little old to still be on a pacifier? I know it’s hard to get kids off of them, my heart broke when I tried to get my daughter off of hers ( my mom was in the middle of moving and we went from daily visits to once a week. I had to relent temporarily) but I think it would be easier to wean off sooner rather than later.

  17. Gal says:

    Kris could only book the hospital, video, sound guys and extras for three hours for the upcoming video.

  18. amoi says:

    this lady does not have cute children.

  19. anon says:

    There really was no public demand for these baby pics at all. Word is if they scored 30-40 thousand for them thats about it. OF course it will be on there show. lol Who are they kidding.

    NOw Kourt might be full Bit– material but if I like any of them it’s her.lol and that ain’t saying a lot.

  20. Jilly Bean says:

    my push present was the dvd collection of battlestar galactica series… i should have got to meet the whole cast! LOL… nothing wrong with getting an additional present EVER!

  21. Ennie says:

    I cannot see Kim going through pregnancy. Her sister is tinier and pregnancy stretches a woman’s skin to every side. That pic of Kourtney in the beige dress says it all. It would be hard for someone who relies on her looks so much as Kim.
