Aunt we a big girl now

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch - HOLLY BYRNES

IT’S baby talk, not dreaded wed­ding dis­as­ters, that gets re­al­ity star­let Kim Kar­dashian all chatty like a girl­friend you’ve just met for cock­tails.

But the don’t-call-me-a-celebrity celebrity is no Cos­mopoli­tan drinker— at least this time— spoon­ing honey into a fine china cup of chamomile tea.

While her life is a blur of pro­mo­tional vis­its (like this one for E! Chan­nel), pub­lic­ity photo shoots and the oc­ca­sional walk by the pa­parazzi with her new beau, Kanye West, the 32-year-old ap­pears at ease in a vel­vet lounge chair at Sydney’s Sher­a­ton On The Park ho­tel, shar­ing news about the ar­rival of sis­ter Kourt­ney’s sec­ond child, Pene­lope.

Not sur­pris­ingly for this fear­less (some say shame­less) fam­ily, the birth was shot for the lat­est sea­son of Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans.

She’s clearly a dot­ing aunt to the new ad­di­tion and her nephew Ma­son, who Kim says has fallen for his in­fant si­b­ling.

Af­ter the scan­dal of her 72-day mar­riage to Kris Humphries, Kar­dashian says she’s set new bound­aries for her­self and spot­light-savvy West.

‘‘ We all have our com­fort zones for what we’ll share and what we won’t and we maybe learn by shar­ing too much along the way. In my new re­la­tion­ship, I hold back a lit­tle bit. I don’t share ev­ery­thing. Yes, Kanye has been in a few episodes but that’s my nat­u­ral life. He’s around when I’m film­ing but I don’t think I’d re­ally share our in­ti­mate din­ner dates, which I would have so will­ingly done be­fore, and that’s OK.’’

The stun­ning brunette says she’s a ‘‘ dif­fer­ent per­son’’ since the mar­riage split.

‘‘ I’ve grown up, I’ve re­ally grown up and that sit­u­a­tion made me grow up. I feel in a re­ally good place right now.’’ Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans, E!, Tues­day, 8.30pm
