Kim Kardashian‘s bagged a new cover, and this time she’s looking stunning on the front of C Magazine.
For its 10th anniversary issue, the pregnant star poses topless in a series of moody black-and-white snaps, with the focus entirely on those striking facial features of hers.
With her skin tanned and glistening and her hair soaking wet and slicked back, the 34-year-old shows none of those pregnancy confidence struggles. But as she admits in the interview, they’re all there…
We all remember when Kim was pregnant with North and was subjected to a barrage of unkind headlines about her changing shape. And the star admits that people didn’t realise just how much it got to her.
‘It was the worst,’ Kim admitted. ‘I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, “She can’t stop eating.” I delivered at 180, and they were like, “She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat” and all these ridiculous stories.’
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also confessed that it completely turned her off to getting her photo taken – something we never thought we’d hear the selfie queen say.
‘It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight’, Kim continued. ‘I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off. I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken.
‘Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. After I had the baby, I was like, these are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn’t control. I don’t want to smile for them. I don’t want to be out.’
In fact, Kim said she felt like being pregnant first time round actually ended up changing her personality.
‘Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo,’ she added. ‘It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.’
Bashing women for their bodies in any situation is wrong, but especially when they’re pregnant. Has anyone heard of hormones?!
We hope Kim gets a much easier ride this time round… Or there will be Kanye to answer to.
