Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Her Son Saint Contracting Covid-19
According to Kim Kardashian, her and Kanye West’s son Saint West has been the latest member of their large family to have battled with the novel coronavirus. The news was revealed in a new Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode’s teaser clip.
Kim Kardashian reveals Saint has COVID-19 in new teaser for KUWTK
In the preview for an episode, the KKW beauty founder Kim K is seen discussing how her 5-year-old son has Covid-19, although it is a bit unclear when he was diagnosed, considering each episode of the reality show is filmed months in advance.
In the clip, Kim is heard saying,
“Saint just tested positive for Covid, and North is saying she’s feeling sick.”
The mom of four added in the confessional how she’s really worried about this news and doesn’t want anyone to freak out. Kim Kardashian also explained how taking care of Saint during that time was such a scary experience:
“I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good,” she recalled. “It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time,” she added
Unfortunately, Saint wasn’t the only member of the Kardashian clan to get COVID-19
Throughout the pandemic, the Kardashian family who are currently shooting their 20th and final ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ season, have experienced multiple scares. Khloe Kardashian contracted the novel coronavirus in early 2020.
Talking about her ordeal and recovery, she said in October,
“I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache. I wouldn’t say it was a migraine. The coughing, my chest would burn when I would cough.”
Khloe wasn’t the only one to have suffered and then recovered from the virus. Kanye, now ex-husband of Kim Kardashian, also battled with Covid-19 early on in the pandemic.
Speaking about that to Grazia magazine, she says:
“Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.”
Kim Kardashian married Kanye West in 2014, and the pair share four children together – seven-year-old North, three-year-old Chicago, and 2-year-old sons, Saint and Psalm. In a surprising turn of events, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February after estrangement from the rapper, ending nearly seven years of marriage.
