- Kim Kardashian's children with Kanye West are her first priority as she makes moves to separate from the rapper.
- "The children are very important to Kim," a source says, adding she is worried about the effect a "permanent split" may have on them.
- Kim and Kanye have been married for six years and share North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
It's clear that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are putting their kids first amid their split.
When reports first surfaced that the A-list couple was calling it quits, a source close to Kim said: "She is focused on keeping them happy and healthy and wants them to have a good relationship with their dad."
Now, a second source says Kim is worried about the effect a "permanent split" may have on North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
"The children are very important to Kim," they tells People.
"She is asking others for advice on how to do this," the insider adds. "But for the past few months and even longer, trying to be a normal family has been challenging and frustrating. She wants to move on."
Of whether or not Kim feels she can save their relationship, another insider shares with the publication: "Kim and Kanye's marriage is beyond repair. Kim is over Kanye's chaos, and at this point, she just wants to focus on the kids and her own life."
They add: "They are just not on the same page when it comes to their future as a family. And Kim is okay with it. She will do everything she can for the kids to have a great relationship with Kanye – she just doesn't want to be married to him."
