Oct. 11, 2013 -- Kris Jenner said that she and her estranged husband Bruce "love each other," but in a new interview, she admitted that she's had second thoughts about marrying him in the first place.

"The one regret, if I had to do it over, would be divorcing [my late husband] Robert Kardashian," she told New You magazine, on newsstands Oct. 19. "But then there wouldn't have been Kendall and Kylie, so that's the way I look at that."

Kris and Bruce Jenner Announce Separation

Jenner, 57, married the former Olympian, 63, in 1991, and the couple had two daughters, Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16. She also has four children from her marriage to Kardashian: Kourtney, 34, Kim, 32, Khloé, 29 and Rob, 26.

"I knew I would have six kids. Why six? Probably because I had one sister, and always wished that we had these big Christmas Eve parties," she said. "I must've seen too many movies. That's definitely one dream that came true."

Jenner explained that each of her children takes after her in some way.

"Khloé is exactly how I am in the way she likes to nest and cook; the way she is with everything in her home -- even the way she makes a bed and sets a table. We're exactly alike in that way," she said, adding that Kim has a personality that is "very much" like her own.

"My son is identical to his father, Robert -- they look alike, act alike, and have the same mannerisms. It's an amazing reminder of what an amazing dad Robert was. He was a great husband and a good person," Jenner said.

"In Kourtney, I see myself when I was young," she continued, "She's exactly the way I was -- just a little more organic. I see her going to the baby music classes, and going on outings with her friends and their babies. I have nine lives, and in one of my old lives, when I was married to Robert, I was the soccer coach, the Brownie leader, and the carpool driver. I admire Kourtney so much because she's nurturing and developing amazing relationships with her children."
