“Kim loves being a mum and spending all of her time with the baby, but she’s really bored! She misses going out all the time to shop or eat and have people in public fawn all over her,” a source told Radar Online.

“Kim really likes the attention she gets from people when she goes out in public or even online, but since Kanye wants her to be more selective about what she’s doing it isn’t as interactive for her and she misses her old life,” the source claimed.

“She wouldn’t trade the baby for anything, of course, but she is saying she is bored right now.”

"I'm enjoying this time to fully embrace motherhood and spend time at home with my family." "I've been reading all of your messages and want to thank you all for your sweet thoughts and best wishes," she said.
