In a recent interview with C Magazine, Kim Kardashian has revealed body shaming is the real reason why she doesn’t smile in photos.

During her first pregnancy Kim had preeclampsia, a disorder that can lead to sudden weight gain and swelling.

In the interview she told C magazine that the negative publicity about her weight gain during her pregnancy changed her mood and her personality.

“They’d 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,” she said.

“I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off. I was dedicated, but also, it changes the way I viewed wanting my picture taken.

“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.”

But, Kim hasn’t let the negativity stop her. This pregnancy, she’s posted up numerous baby bod pics on her Instagram like these ones:



With two baby bottle emojis as the caption.

And this one, captioned ‘Pregnancy Lips’.
