The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards gets emotional discussing the gift her children are to her. Asked about her her biggest source of support, Kim tells OK! it is her kids who lift her up. “They are my everything, they are my number one supporters,” she says. “They are my strength, they are my support, they are my life.”

Watching Kim tear up while talking about how much she loves Brooke, Whitney, Chad and Kimberly makes us reach for the tissues too! Kim has had a rough past few years, and it’s obvious she feels her kids have really been there for her through it all.

Kim says there is so much more she wants to do in her life for herself and her children. “I want to live, I want to really live. I want to walk on the beach. I want to smell the flowers,” she says. “It may sound so small and trivial to some people, but to me it’s not. I love life and I truly enjoy it. I love being alive.”
