Fresh off her contentious divorce settlement with ex-husband Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian has her eyes on the future.

In a sit-down interview with Kardashian family friend Ryan Seacrest, Kim was open about how, even though the ink is still wet on her divorce papers, she's open to another trip down the aisle.

"I do think I would get married again," Kim told Seacrest in the E! special, Ryan Secrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation. "That's what I've always wanted. And just because you think you find it and you realize that's not it, I think I was brave enough to realize that quickly and not waste time."

Speaking in specifics, Kim shed light on how she felt about her rapper boyfriend, Kanye West: "I found what I really wanted. So I think I definitely do want that."

But even with all this perspective, Kim did allude to the fact that, if she were to wed again, some changes would be in order. Not only for the sake of another run at matrimony, but also for her yet-to-be-born child.

"I felt like I gave so much of myself publicly," Kim said. "And when you make mistakes it's embarrassing. I'm going to be a mom, so I feel myself getting really protective."

2013 could be a big year for Kim — her divorce from Kris Humphries is finally settled, and her new child will arrive in just a few short months. Will this year also bring marriage with Kanye West?  Who knows. Suffice it to say the odds are good that, should Kim and Kanye decide to tie the knot, we'll all hear a thing or two about it.
