Kris Jenner has broken her silence on daughter Kim Kardashian's divorce from husband Kanye West.

Speaking on the "Kyle & Jackie O Show" podcast on Thursday, Jenner said she feels compassion for both sides.

"I think it's always going to be hard," the 65-year-old reality star explained. "The good thing about our family is that we are there for each other and supportive and we love each other very, very much."

"All I want is for those two kids to be happy. That's the goal," she went on. "I think we all want that for our families, just to be able to have the love and appreciation of one another, and that everyone's OK. That's what you want as a mom."

As for how the divorce will play out on their reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Jenner admitted she isn't sure how it will be handled.

"I don't know what they have decided on in the finale. We haven't even seen the first show yet," she said, noting that the first episode of the final season premieres Friday. "I'm sure they're putting some final touches."

But, she insisted, "I think it's just a private time for them. Kim wanted to deal with this with her own family in her own time. When she feels like it, I'm sure she'll say what she needs to say."

Kardashian and West share four children together -- North, 7; Saint, 5; Chicago, 3; and Psalm, 1.

The former couple wed in 2014 and news of their divorce broke on Feb. 19.
