Kris Jenner is the devoted matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but she's also just a regular mom like the rest of us. (Well, sort of.) We moms hate to admit if we have a favorite child, even if that favorite changes from time to time. With six kids of her own, Kris can't help but have a sweet spot for one of them at a time, and she's even been vocal about it on various occasions. It's true -- and we've rounded up all the evidence to prove it!

More from CafeMom: 

Of course she loves all of her kids, but when one seems to be doing a particularly amazing job at life, Kris is all for branding them as her favorite (for the moment). Most people have assumed over the years that Kim is the momager's favorite, but Kris actually plays favorites more than it seems with all of her kids.

She does only have Kendall's and Kylie's names tattooed on her. But, then again, Kourtney is her firstborn. However, Rob is the only son. She and Khloe definitely have a special bond, and Kim has always been her business partner. So who wins? Check out what evidence we have and see if it can be figured out.
