We know for a fact that our fashionista mama would love to design some cool maternity wear. Kourtney had been quoted saying, “I would love to design a maternity clothing line. It is so hard to find stylish clothes for pregnant people I would say 99% of the clothes I wore were not maternity because I couldn’t find anything I liked.”

Our Kardashian has not forgotten what it took to be here.

Awww! Isn’t that sweet?
