Despite her wrinkle-free skin, hard-earned abs, $3,000+ beauty regimen and radiant complexion, Kim Kardashian West still worries about getting older just like the rest of us. The 36-year-old star, who will be welcoming her third childanother girl! — with husband Kanye West via surrogate soon, opened up about her fear of aging in a recent interview with The Cut for the launch of her three KKW Fragrances.

When asked if she has fears about aging, she replied: “Every single day.”

The star said the topic of aging actually came up in conversation among her family when the sisters got together to celebrate momager Kris Jenner’s 62nd birthday at the beginning of November.

“We were having dinner with my mom last night for her birthday. We were talking about the same thing,” Kardashian said. “It’s obviously about the wisdom. There’s a sense of calmness and wisdom you get from life.”

Still, the star’s not one to deny the basic fact that getting older isn’t fun. “But it also just sucks,” she said. “There’s no easy way. [But] I would take aging over not being here.”

Growing older has also shifted her priorities, including a renewed focus on her health since the birth of her son Saint West in December 2015. “I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them,” Kardashian said on The View in June.

“I mean I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in 12 weeks. I had two surgeries on my uterus … I was already not feeling like myself, and then when people were sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like, ‘Okay. I’m gonna get it together.’”

So, she started an intense workout regimen and diet to maintain her fit physique. She enlisted the help of a bodybuilder she discovered on Instagram to get her up and working out between 5:30 and 6 a.m. Her trainer’s also helped the star cut out all the unhealthy foods she would snack on. “She’s really helped me with my meal plan to definitely add healthy carbs, vegetables. I was just not eating properly,” Kardashian said.
