Kim Kardashian West Says North Still Needs to 'Warm Up' to Brother Saint: 'I Saw Glimmers of Hope a Week Ago'

Kim Kardashian West previously revealed that her 4-year-old daughter North gets jealous of her little brother Saint, 22 months

North is slowly getting used to having a little brother — just ahead of her baby sister‘s arrival.

In a new video segment featuring grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Shannon on her app and website, Kim Kardashian West debunked rumors surrounding her earlier admission that her daughter “does not like” her brother Saint.

“I said that on [Live with Kelly & Ryan],” she said, adding of the little girl’s affection for the 22-month-old, “Obviously North loves Saint, she just is still jealous.”

Continues Kardashian West, “She needs to still get it together and warm up and be a little bit nicer, but I think she’s getting there. I saw glimmers of hope a week ago. She’s not harmful, shes not hurting him or anything. She just doesn’t want boys in her room.”

Responds Shannon cheekily, “I don’t blame her!”

During her August co-hosting duties on the morning talk show, Kardashian West revealed of her daughter, “I don’t know if it’s because she’s the older sister. I don’t know what it is. I thought it was a phase. She does not like her brother and it’s so hard for me.”

“She would get so jealous when I would breastfeed and all that kind of stuff,” added the 36-year-old reality star. “And now, the phase isn’t going away.”
