WE HAVE been keeping up with the Kardashians for over a decade now as the show draws to an end.
And it’s fair to say that the world’s most talked about family has come a long way since they first hit our screens back in 2007.

Following Kim Kardashian’s announcement that the show has been cancelled, we take a look at how they’ve changed.
Easily the most famous member of the ‘klan’, Kim Kardashian used to be best known as Paris Hilton’s bff.
She has since abandoned her penchant for hoop earrings and halter-necks for more daring fashion pieces, most notably skin tight PVC.
Kim Kardashian is almost unrecognisable 14 years later
She became the poster girl for contouring, with her sheeny lipgloss days now well and truly behind her.
The most dramatic change of course is the fact the Kim went from a Kardashian to a Kardashian-West when she married Kanye in 2014.
She is now mum to North, seven, Saint, five, and Chicago, three, and Psalm who arrived via surrogate in May 2019.
It has been announced that Kim has filed from divorce from Kayne.
Kanye’s appearance in the final series is expected to be minimal.
Kourtney has abandoned her noughties look for a sleeker style
Like Kim, Kourtney was a fan of the halter neck top and hooped earrings combo and has followed suit with a far sleeker style.
The first series of the reality show saw a 27-year-old Kourtney introducing her then 24-year-old boyfriend Scott Disick.
The couple went on to have three children together but later split amid cheating allegations in 2017.
And despite the turbulent end to the relationship, the former couple have remained friends for the sake of their children.
Meanwhile the mum-of-three barely seems to have aged a day.
Religiously sticking to an organic diet has enabled the star to keep her figure trim, although she has admitted to having breast enhancement surgery.
Khloe has had a serious glow-up over the past 14 years
Since then she has gone through an incredible weight loss transformation, working out up to five times a week.
Since shedding the pounds, Khloe regularly flaunts her enviable figure in revealing outfits.
The past years have been somewhat challenging for the star who split from Tristan Thompson, the father of her daughter True, after he cheated on her with Kylie Jenner’s former best friend Jordyn Woods.
However, Khloe has come away with her head held high thanks to the support of the Kardashian klan.
Kendall has gone from a fresh-faced kid to a supermodel
Fresh-faced Kendall was just 13 when she first appeared in KUWTK.
It didn’t take long for the pretty teen to land herself a modelling contract, where she’s raked in the cash by collaborating with a number of different high-end brands and companies.
After being voted by GQ as the “coolest person in the world” in 2015, stylish Kendall has taken the fashion industry by storm.
According to Forbes, she was one of the highest paid models in the world in 2016, earning upwards of $7million thanks to her work with brands including Victoria’s Secret, Chanel and Calvin Klein.
However, her modelling career famously landed her in hot water in 2017 when she starred in a £40 million Pepsi advert which was described as “tasteless” and “tone deaf” as it piggy backed on the Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March to flog fizzy drinks.
The ad was pulled almost immediately and Kendall admitted she “felt bad” about the fiasco in an episode of KUWTK.
Kylie is worlds away from her younger self
The family’s youngest daughter, who was just 9 when she first appeared on the show, Kylie has become known for her social media presence.
She has become a make-up mogul since she launched her own make-up brand, Kylie Cosmetics, and last year was named the youngest self-made billionaire of all time.
Despite her drastic change in appearance, she has only ever admitted to having lip fillers, and was forced to furiously deny she had cheek or jaw surgery, bum implants or a boob job in October 2016.
Two years later she revealed that she’d had her lip fillers removed sharing a snap of her new pout captioning it “I got rid of all my filler” but admitted in a later Instagram story that she had them “touched up”.
Kylie also became a mother for the first time when she and Travis Scott welcomed Stormi Webster in February 2018.
Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, came out as a transgender in 2015
Of course the most dramatic transformation over the past 14 years is Caitlyn Jenner who was introduced to the public as Bruce back in 2007 before coming out as transgender in 2015.
The former gold medal winning Olympian secretly spent her whole life battling gender dysphoria, and had wanted to transition by the age of 40.
She has been married three times (Chrystie Scott, Linda Thompson and Kris Jenner) and has six biological children (Burt, Cassandra, Brandon, Brody, Kendall and Kylie).
When she began a relationship with Kris in 1990, Caitlyn had already been on hormone therapy for more than four years.
The Kardashian matriarch was aware, but Caitlyn previously suggested Kris might have wanted to “fix” her.
Caitlyn was known as Bruce until she transitioned in 2015 and has always openly referenced her past name in interviews.
Rob has battled with his weight over the years
The 34-year-old has earned the nickname “reclusive” Rob after he took a backseat on the show.
Rob was once a permanent fixture on Keeping Up With The Kardashians alongside his sisters, before he began retreating from the limelight – and his early romance with talk show host Adrienne Bailon played out on camera at the time.
The pair dated for two years from 2007, but eventually split in 2009 amid claims Rob had cheated.
Rob began piling on weight and eating unhealthily at the end of 2012, and he slowly started retreating from his family’s reality show the following year as it continued to spiral.
It went from bad to worse later that year when Rob was hospitalised after discovering he had Type 2 diabetes. It was enough to motivate him to try and make a change.
Rob truly shocked the world in January 2016 when he revealed he was dating Blac Chyna – the mother of Tyga’s baby… The same Tyga that was dating his sister Kylie Jenner at the time.
Their whirlwind romance meant Rob made a return to the spotlight as they shared endless loved up photos and videos together – before getting engaged in April that same year.
However, the relationship turned turbulent and after a series of fights, they split in December 2016 – a month after welcoming a baby daughter together, Dream.
It has been his strong bond with daughter Dream that has ultimately spurred Rob on to overhaul his lifestyle ever since.
Rob joined his sister Kourtney for her 40th birthday where he appeared to be happier and slimming down.
Kris appears to have barely aged a day
Momager Kris Jenner has put her name to a number of exciting projects.
Not only does she have her own talk show, she’s also released her own cookbooks and QVC fashion collection since the success of the show.
She is also still in charge of all of her children’s careers, which has helped her build a £45 million fortune.
She is now a grandmother-of-nine, but at the age of 65, she hardly looks old enough to have six grown up children.
