While Kim Kardashian gives a whole new meaning to the term “hourglass figure,” she has had her fair share of trials and tribulations when it comes to weight gain over the years, especially when she was pregnant with North West.
Despite the fact that most men would probably define Kim’s figure as a “dream come true,” for her, having the dangerous curves she possesses isn’t always easy, as she revealed in a recent interview with Elle magazine.
Kim Kardashian revealed to the publication that she used to think that it was God’s sense of humor which played a part in her weight gain, and loss, as she said,
“I’d think God was doing this for a reason. He was saying: “Kim, you think you’re so hot, but look what I can do to you.” My body just went crazy. After five months I swore I’d never get pregnant again. I got so huge and it felt like someone had taken over my body.”
For her part, breaking the mold of what was considered to be sexy came with difficulties for Kim as she battled to come to terms with her buxom body.
“It’s taken me a long time to be happy with my body and for my confidence to grow to what it is today. I grew up when the body to have was the tall, slim, supermodel one, like Cindy Crawford’s. No one looked like me. It’s good to break the mould and recreate one. I’m an Armenian girl, I have shape, and it turned out people liked that. That makes me feel good about myself and about other women for being so supportive. I am a confident woman, but I didn’t just arrive confident – it has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now.”
On top of that, Kim revealed that her main inspiration for gaining self-esteem was her late father, Robert Kardashian, who wrote her a letter when she was just entering her teens.
“When I was 13 my father wrote me a letter. I was unhappy with my body – I developed really early. Every night I would sit in the bath and cry, I prayed my boobs would stop growing. He told me I had a body not many girls have, that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth.”
Despite the challenges she faced in terms of weight gain from her first pregnancy, Kim shared that she is ready to do it all over again, as she badly wants a sibling for North West, “I want a boy and another girl; I want it to start happening straight away. I loved being part of a huge family – and I want that for North. We’d do IVF if nothing happens, but we both want to keep trying naturally.”
