Kim Kardashian: ‘I Didn’t Want To Smile For The Nasty Paps Who Called Me Fat’

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian massively struggled during her first pregnancy, with the haterz unable to resist slagging her off for gaining a bit of weight while she was, y’know, growing an actual human inside her body.

Seriously, it was actually outrageous.

Now, two years after her first media pregnancy battle, Kim is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West and appears to be enjoying the nine months a lot more than she did the first time round.

However, nasty words have a habit of sticking with you, and although she is taking all of the negativity flung her way in her stride, Kim has admitted that being constantly called ‘fat’ while expecting her daughter forced her to change her personality.

In fact, the words were so harsh that Kim became reluctant to smile for the paps who had previously slagged her off - which sparked her trademark pout when in front of the cameras.

Speaking to C Magazine, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star explained: “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.

“It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. 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.

“Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.”

Welp. As much as we love Kim K just the way she is, we are sad that the super smiley Kim has gone thanks to heartless comments made while she was pregnant.

The 34 year old went on to remind us all that her difficult first pregnancy was a result of pre-eclampsia, a condition which causes dangerously high blood pressure.

Thankfully, Kim doesn’t seem to be at risk of this happening again, adding to the mag: “I feel lucky that, as of right now, I don’t feel like I’m gonna get pre-eclampsia again, which last time [contributed to] not only the weight, but also the swelling.”

Either way, Kim, we think that you look bloomin’ marvellous - don’t let the haters and their spiteful comments bring you down.
