Kim Kardashian: Man Of The Year and Mother Of Four

by Emily McIntyre Kim Kardashian was recently announced as GQ’s final Man Of The Year cover star, and it certainly caused a stir online.   With her successes in just about every avenue of business, beauty and fashion, just when you thought she couldn’t possibly add another achievement to her long list, she announces on Instagram: ‘Hi!
