Kris Jenner Refuses To Be Called Grandma!

Despite the fact that she’s the grandmother of the world’s most famous baby at the moment, Kris Jennerrefuses to be called Grandma!

Sure, Kim Kardashianand Kanye West’s baby girl North isn’t saying much of anything at the moment (she’s less than a month old, after all) but we can’t say we’re super shocked that Kris won’t be called Grandma when the time comes. The 57-year-old grandmother of three has made no secret of her, ahem, desire to stay young. So, if that traditional name is off the table, what does Kris want her grandkids to call her?

“They call me Lovey and Bruce is Grandpa,” reports Metro. “At first I was Grandma, and all of a sudden I didn’t like the way that sounded, my mom had a friend called Lovey and I thought that was the cutest name.”

They call her Lovey? Ok, that actually is kind of cute, though it seems more like something Kris should be calling her grandkids!

In any event, when North is old enough she will do like Kourtney’s kids, her cousins Mason and Penelope, and call Kris Lovey.

You know what they say: What Grandma wants, Grandma gets!

She refuses to act like a member of her generation, so this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

I'm not saying she should be sitting in a chair rocking and knitting  the baby booties or anything. I am older than most of the people in this group, I daresay. I look young for my age and like to dress youthfully, like Chris. I dare anyone to say I should be sitting on the couch looking at Lawrence Welk and laughing at reruns of game shows that haven't been on the air for 30 years. But I am not still doing immature, rash and foolhardy stuff like I was in my youth. Kris Jenner has never outgrown that behavior, and in her head, she is no older than her daughters. You won't see me running around drinking with my sons when they become of age and doing stuff they will be embarrassed by and hope to God their friends don't find out about.

Don't they call her grandma on the show?

I'm not quite sure I only watch when there's literally nothing else to watch and I mostly fall asleel.

Wow. I love being called Grandma! One of the best things about having grandkids. My MIL didn't like being called Grandma. She was "Nan." I wear Grandma like a badge of honor.

Quoting PinkParadox:

A lot of kids call their grandmothers Nana, it's pretty typical. And it's not too different sounding than Grandma. Notice how Kris chooses a word that can in no way be mistaken for Gran, Grandma or Nana, LOL.

My mom is her age, and she's Grandma. I guess the name itself can seem kind of aging, so I can sort of understand why she doesn't want to be called Grandma. But then, does she not refer to them as her grandchildren? What does she say, her daughter's kid(s)?
