The reality TV star is on the cover of CR Fashion Book's 13th issue so they asked her about her superstitious beliefs. They also asked how she connects to her late dad after his passing. Kim revealed that after losing her dad in 2003, there are signs and symbols she picks up on that remind her of her father and that make her feel like he's still around.

She said her and her husband have even bonded over the idea that their parents might even be hanging out together in the afterlife, even though they never met when they were alive. Although the KKW Beauty Founder has been sharing every aspect of her life on Keeping up with the Kardashians for more than a decade, having her share this special and intimate connection she holds with her father is so heartwarming.

Kim opened up about her beliefs in a the interview.

Kim posted a pic from her photo shoot with CR Fashion Book, which also features an interview with the makeup mogul. "I believe there are signs from the spirit world all around us," she told the publication. "When my dad was sick with cancer, we were laying out by his pool and I said, 'If you die, you have to come back in the form of a bird.' We were driving on the freeway right before his funeral and this huge flock of birds flew over the 101. Everyone stopped because it was so crazy looking. I was like, 'There you are.'"


She said her and Kanye are always aware of the signs from their parents.

“Kanye and I always reference birds. We seem to see a lot of black crows," she said. “Yesterday Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together. We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.”


Kim also revealed she follows certain superstitious rituals in her day to day life.

“I can be superstitious at times,” she shared. “Like before going on an airplane. My family and I always step onto the place with the right foot first. Another superstition is that whenever we hear an ambulance, we always touch our hair. I also say a prayer that the person will be okay. I’m big on prayer and superstition together.”

Kim's dad passed away in September 2003.

Robert Kardashian was 59 when he died, just eight weeks after he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He left behind his wife, Ellen Pierson, and his three daughters Kim, Khloé and Kourtney, and his son, Robert Kardashian, Jr.
