when you're kim kardashian how tough can parenting really be? you've got enough cash to pay
11:52 pm
now kim has come out to say that going from one to two children has been genuinely tough on her. not everybody is sympathetic. her comments have generated some real dialogue. here's abc's reena niner. >> reporter: not many parents with two young kids spend their nights like this. at a mega fashion show in new york. but that's just what kanye and kim did tonight. seen here in this video from "title." even with all the help she can afford, kim now saying baby number two has been a big adjustment. posting this week, i get no sleep. in reference to balancing the needs of her newborn son with those of her toddler daughter north west, seen in this instagram photo. every waking second i'm not with the baby i'm with north. i feel like i go into overdrive to give my daughter attention and make her feel loved. of course as the internet was quick to point out, she probably has lots of help. but there are the sympathizers
11:53 pm
kardashian's comments sparked new dialogue about being a parent in the modern age. when couples go from one child to two or more, the pressure to provide a perfect upbringing for each one has made parenting harder than ever before. it can look a lot like this. corey white and her husband dan gibson are parents to four kids. >> this is levi. olivia. jackson. and then we have emily. if you can see us all. >> reporter: earlier this month the couple posted this video to facebook. showing the ontario mom juggling to put her toddler and three young triplets to bed. the post quickly racked up over 66 million views on facebook. finding out they were expecting triplets was a total shock for corey and dan. >> i went to the ultrasound by myself. and when i got there and they told me it was triplets i didn't know whether to laugh or cry. >> reporter: but sometimes life works that way. just ask nicole mcnamara and her husband melvin.
11:54 pm
and decided to go for one more. >> we got together, we decided on two. i mean, that was kind of the >> easy. >> reporter: instead -- they got these guys, twins hunter and skyler. >> we went into the doctor and he said, well, there's two. and my response was, two what? she was like, two babies. >> i was looking at the screen. i said, yep, i can see two. like a national geographic of watching babies, some wild animal. yeah, there's two there. >> reporter: raising their three kids isn't cheap. the average cost for middle-income families to raise a child in the u.s. is more than $245,000. by the time their kids are 18, nicole and melvin will have spent more than $736,000. and they haven't even paid for college yet. >> child care is extraordinarily expensive. food. food is a biggest expense. >> reporter: it's not just everyday costs that add up.
11:55 pm
a study shows that 53% of moms feel overwhelmed trying to create perfect life for their children. and 46% have incurred debt as a result. >> it's not uncommon for parents to put their kids first. and even put themselves in debt in order to provide certain opportunities. >> reporter: this idea of perfection is taking a toll on more than just the bank accounts. 44% of moms say they argue with their partner over money. at least some of the time. the percentage jumps to nearly 50% in households with two or more children. >> i think the more personalities you have in the household, the more conflict there will be. and every parent has a different way of parenting. >> reporter: and when it comes to having that second child, women and men appear to have different experiences. according to studies, women and men differ slightly in happiness after the birth of their second child. >> we have a lot more women who
11:56 pm
and a lot more women who are, you know, earning the living that the family is living off of. and then on top of that, they want to be the good mother, the good wife, the good friend. >> reporter: even if it's hard, almost every parent thinks raising children is the most amazing job in the world. especially if they've had trouble conceiving. on tlc's new show "rattled" -- >> oh, hi, baby. >> reporter: first-time parents ashley and tyson gardner struggle with infertility for eight years before giving birth to two sets of identical twins, all girls, through ivf. a 1 in 70 million chance. >> just having them makes us appreciate every moment. especially having quadruplets. where some people may not be super grateful for such a hard situation, for us we're like, yay! we're so excited. like they all four have poopy diapers and we're like, this is great! >> we are just running a million miles an hour.
11:57 pm
>> it is very expense ive. formula, diapers, clothing, wipies, medicines, doctor visits. mutt fly that times four. sometimes you're spinning into the ground. >> reporter: seeing they were overwhelmed by the challenge of raising four babies, ashley's sister turned to the internet for help. she helped the gardners set up a facebook page and blog called the gardner quad squad which helped the couple with donated baby clothes and supplies. thankfully for the mcnamaras the newborn phase is behind them. the twins turned 3 in may. it's no walk in the park. both nicole and melvin work full-time, mostly from home. >> work is always here. after the kids go down we go back to our offices. we have to be intentional about saying, okay, this is the kids' time, this is our time. >> reporter: these parents all say they wouldn't trade it in for the world. >> everybody's going to have their ups and downs, their struggles. but children are the greatest blessing ever.
11:58 pm
is with them, they're worth every second of it. >> reporter: for "nightline," i'm reena ninen in new york. >> our thanks to reena. the gardner family is featured in the new show "rattled" which airs tuesdays on tlc. viral. tonight she shot "upside down and inside out" in zero gravity, no special effects. behind the scenes footage showing how they did it coming up. lease a 2016 lincoln mkx for $399 a month
11:59 pm
janet? cough if you can hear me. don't even think about it. i took mucinex dm for my phlegmy cough. yeah...but what about mike? it works on his cough too. cough! it works on his cough too. mucinex dm relieves wet and dry coughs for 12 hours. let's end this. guys, it's just the two of you. the setting is just right. there's something in the air. but here's the thing: about half of men over 40 have some degree of erectile dysfunction. well, viagra helps guys with ed get and keep an erection. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain for pulmonary hypertension your blood pressure could drop to an unsafe level. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. ask your doctor...

coolest music videos i've seen in a while. try watching this without smiling. don't stop can't stop >> this music video shot entirely in zero gravity is racking up millions of hits tonight. don't stop can't stop >> the song is "upside down and inside out." the band is ok go. the video features the band members and a few dancers in flight attendant uniforms performing stunts while flying in a plane thousands of feet above the earth. >> it is truly unbelievable that everything just came together. >> reporter: it required three weeks of training at a russian cosmonaut center. >> we flew in a plane that basically goes like this. wonderful is 20 seconds of double gravity while the plane is throwing you into the air, then you feel weightless for 27 seconds while you go up, over the ground. >> after the maneuver you've lost altitude so it takes four or five minutes for the plane to
12:02 am
>> we wanted the whole video to be weightless. we cut up the song into eight chunks, each short enough to fit into a single period of weightlessness. we'd perform them in order, then later cut out the four, five-minute waiting periods. >> reporter: ok go is known for creative videos. here we go here we go >> reporter: they ran their way into the national consciousness more than ten years ago with "here it goes again." then they turned a car into a musical instrument for their "needing getting" video. i won't let you down >> reporter: and they wowed with these impressive aerials in "i won't let you down." upside down >> reporter: this shoot presented some very specific challenges. >> most people's response to weightlessness is to start swimming. >> the other is just puking. so over the course of 21 flights we had about 58 unscheduled regurgitations.
12:03 am
>> i'm sighing big sighs of relief that it happened. don't stop can't stop >> great video. thank you for watching. tune into gma first thing in the morning. as always we are online 24/7 on our "nightline" facebook page and at abcnews.com. thanks for watching. good night. welcome to "dish nation," ladies and gentlemen, filling in
