Kimora Lee Simmons Opens Up About Her Blended FamilyChris Rogers
Kimora Lee Simmons is a working mom of three, but according to her, “I’m not a superhero.” Find out how Simmons tackles her life and what a blended family means to her.
A lot of moms often find it hard to balance work and motherhood, but Simmons has just the solution for living life in the fast lane. “It’s about prioritizing. Just take it one step at a time. Do the best that you can. I’m a mom and I have two husbands an ex husband [Russell Simmons] and a next husband [Djimon Hounsou]. It’s a blended family and it’s very hard to keep things together, but we’re happy and we live in love.”
Simmons, fortunately, didn’t find it hard having her daughter adjust to baby number three. “They’re super protective, they’re big girls. They help me a lot with Kenzo. They’re like little moms. I worried about the age difference at first, but now I feel like it’s working to my benefit.”
And when it comes to living live in the “fab lane,” one must work extra hard to keep their kids grounded – especially in front of the limelight.
“I think it’s really important for them to understand the community at large. It’s important for all of us to understand that we’re all a small part in a bigger movement. I want them to see and understand that to whom much is given, much is expected. We’ve been given a lot in terms of life, things, and exposure. It’s important to give that back.”
