Kourtney Kardashian felt ‘overwhelmed’ about turning 40

Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian turned 40 last year.

Kourtney Kardashian felt “really overwhelmed” about turning 40.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star – who has children Mason, 10, Penelope, seven, and Reign, five, with former partner Scott Disick – has admitted she would “cry daily for no reason” in the lead up to her milestone birthday last April because she felt so much “pressure.

“I think, for some reason, 40 for me really made me analyse my life.”

She said: “There was this pressure. I think of where you think you’re supposed to be at a certain age. I think, for some reason, 40 for me really made me analyse my life. And I just felt really overwhelmed.

“There was intense pressure from everyone. Like, ‘You have to look the best you’ve ever looked walking down the stairs to your party!’ I don’t like being the centre of attention, so I didn’t even know if I wanted a party.”

Fortunately, Kourtney “feels amazing” now and her change in outlook began from her birthday.

She said on In the Room: “I woke up on my birthday though feeling so good.”
