If you’ve ever heard the question; “So when are you going to make me a grandma?” then you probably know how the Kardashians feel. Kris Jenner, mom to Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian recently admitted in an interview with US Magazine that even though she has one grandson, Mason, she wants more and puts pressure on her daughters to have babies.
Jenner says, “I would love more grandchildren, [Kourtney Kardashian's son] Mason is the love of our lives, and he is so much fun, but there's only one Mason to go around. It would be nice if we had some more.”
This seems to be a common theme with many grandmas-to-be who are waiting longer and longer these days for their daughters to conceive children. A recent report shows that more women are waiting until after 40 to have their first child, which is probably making their parents a little antsy. CDC’s Brady Hamilton told ABC News, “This increase is part of a general trend that we've seen over the past few decades.”
Even Kim Kardashian, now 30, is surprised at the way her life has turned out thus far. Kardashian is quoted in US as saying, “I seriously thought by the time I was 30, I would have one [baby] and a bun in the oven...I cannot wait to have a baby just like [Mason].” With Kim’s wedding set for later this summer, there is speculation that Kris Jenner may not have to wait too much longer.
How have you dealt with the pressure from parents or in-laws to conceive?

I wonder what their life would be like if their dad was still around. I get the sense that Kris is much more lenient than he would be...
