Kim Kardashian and Kanye West can't wait for Baby No. 2!

"We are so beyond excited," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star says in Glamour's July issue, on newsstands June 16. Since becoming a mom to North West in June 2013, the 34-year-old Selfish author says, "I'm a completely different person...If it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life."

Kardashian announced her second pregnancy in Sunday's supertease for the second half of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, premiering later this year. Throughout the season, cameras showed her visiting fertility specialists—and even consulting psychic John Edward—as she tried to conceive a baby.

"I didn't know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges]," she admits. "But meeting people at my fertility doctor's office who are going through the same things I'm going through, I thought, 'Why not share my story? It's been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby—I could only have one more. One was like, 'You should get a surrogate.' The other one was like, 'Oh, no, you'll be fine.' Then I called my doctor, and he's like, 'You know what? I believe—we'll get through it.' There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor's office] hysterically crying, and other times when I was like, 'OK, everything's looking good—it's going to be this month!'"

"The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster," she adds.

According to Kardashian, motherhood "changes you" in unimaginable ways. "When I found out I was pregnant [with North West], I was going through an awful divorce, Kanye and I had just been dating for seven months—granted, we knew each other for a decade—and I was like, 'I can't do this. It's not the right time.' But then I figured, If I'm in my 30s and I'm not ready, I'll never be ready. So it's been the biggest lesson, and the biggest joy of my life."

That being said, Kardashian knew parenthood wouldn't be easy. "My best friend told me, 'You'll never remember what your life was like before her, but it'll be OK.'"

What else has she learned from motherhood?

"North has taught me patience. There's nothing I wouldn't do for her. And nothing I wouldn't do for my husband. She's empowered us to want to be the best parents and the best spouses," the E! star says. "Today North put on these Manolo heels of mine and was walking perfectly around my closet. I sent Kanye a video of her; he was like, 'Tell her to stop! She cannot grow up! She cannot wear your heels.'"
