While Kim Kardashian was showing off her bikini baby bump on a vacation in Greece, fellow pregnant celebrity Kate Middleton has kept her baby bump under tight wraps.
The pregnancies, and baby bumps, of both Kate and Kim point to vastly different personalities. Kim Kardashian is the fame-friendly reality television star whose life plays out before the world in a series of Instgram and Twitter photos and television shows. Kate Middleton is the button-down Duchess of Cambridge, one whose personal style tends toward the conservative.
Kim Kardashian regularly shares pictures baring a lot of skin, and in fact her career was kick-started by a conveniently leaked sex tape with a former boyfriend. For Kate Middleton, when topless photos surfaced last summer from a vacation both she and the entire royal family rallied against what was seen as a gross invasion of privacy.
Kate Middleton has kept her baby bump under wraps, making few public appearances and dressing conservatively when she does.
The oddest part is that Kim Kardashian idolizes Kate Middleton. The reality star reached out to Middleton in an attempt to start a friendship, sending a baby gift and a warm note, but Kate hasn’t responded.
It seems that if Kim holds Kate in such high regard, she may try to emulate a bit more of the reservedness shown by the Duchess. Instead, Kim Kardashian is showing off her bikini bump and using the details of her personal life for more more publicity.
For Kim Kardashian, the bikini baby bump seems to be a source of pride. A source told Us Weekly that the reality star has been working with a personal trainer to keep her body toned.
“Once the bump started to show she got more confidence,” the insider told the magazine. “Kim is feeling very confident in her body. She had no second thoughts about wearing bikinis on the trip.”
