'Keeping up with the Kardashians': Fans praise Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's decision to renew their wedding vows in private
Kim Kardashian's decision to not televise her vow renewal ceremony on KUWTK has fans praising the reality star and her husband Kanye for maintaining a healthy public-private life balance.
Being a reality star means your whole life is out in public, nobody knows that better than the Kardashians. Every aspect of their life has been recorded on cameras, including extremely private moments like childbirth. So, in the recently aired episode when Kim revealed that she wouldn’t be showing the vows or the vow renewal ceremony on the show and wanted to keep it private, fans were impressed and said they began respecting the reality star more.
Episode 6 of KUWTK which aired on October 20, saw Kim deciding to renew her vows with husband Kanye on the occasion of their five-year wedding anniversary. Kim was so happy with the way the rapper rose to the occasion and took care of their children, that she decided to do something special for him, and zeroed in on having a vow-renewal ceremony. She called her sister Khloe to run the idea by her, and Khloe was totally on board with it. Later we see Kim learning that Kanye had the same plans and she saw him meeting up with a planner to plan the ceremony. So, the couple went ahead with planning their special day.
Fans get to see a beautiful montage of clips from earlier seasons showing Kim and Kanye’s journey. The reality star later sat down her son, Saint West and told him their engagement story, which had all the fans praising the star for her amazing parenting skills. We even saw her rehearsing her vows with her baby boy. The snippets we caught while Kim was rehearsing is all we will be getting from what Kim might have actually read during the ceremony.
In her rehearsals, we saw Kim praising Kanye for being an inspiration, supportive and a good friend to her. As much as we would have loved to hear the vows and witness the beautiful ceremony, we couldn’t be prouder for the couple who chose to keep this special moment private instead of broadcasting it to the whole world.
Fans too were appreciative of the smart move. A fan tweeted, “Beautiful day! I’m glad we got to see some! I respect Kim for keeping it private though! Love you dolls so much #KUWTK”. Another fan wrote, “I love that we didn’t get to see the vow renewal! Like what a nice balance between being private but also showing us so much. We got so many cute moments with Kim and the kids #KUWTK”. Although the actual ceremony wasn’t televised fans loved watching all the planning that went behind the event. A fan expressed, “This @KimKardashian and @kanyewest vow renewal segment was so precious!!! Loved it! #KUWTK”.
