The Khloe & Lamar star revealed that she likes looking after her four sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, as well as brother Rob Kardashian, as if they were her children, a tendency she has had since childhood.
"I have always been like a mama lion and I have treated my family like they are my cubs," Kardashian explained to People.
"I'm the same way with my baby sisters, older sisters, brother, and now my husband. It is just something that I was born with I guess. I'm incredibly over-protective."
The 27-year-old also insisted that she does not let media gossip about herself or her family affect her, adding: "I have to remember I chose to be as honest and open as I am, so I can't let the rumours really bother me.
"People will always create what they want when they want. I keep my circle close and my family closer. As long as we all are doing well then I couldn't be happier."
Kardashian and Odom recently announced that they are taking a break from their reality show as they have 'a lot on their plates' at the current time.
