Kim Kardashian has a very unique look, though one thing has seemingly changed over the past few years; her smile has slowly begun to disappear.
Sure, not everyone can smile and be happy 24/7, but for a seasoned veteran of the reality TV world such as Kim Kardashian, one would think it shouldn’t be so difficult to put on a happy face for fans, so what has happened?
According to People magazine, Kim is claiming that her lack of smiling stems from her first pregnancy in 2013 with daughter North West. Now, everyone knows that Kim’s first pregnancy was a rather difficult one, what with all the medical issues, the cravings, and of course, the weight gain. While the Keeping up with the Kardashian’s star took most of the problems like the pro that she is, she claims that one thing changed her and her personality entirely.
During her recent interview with C Magazine, Kim Kardashian stated that during her first pregnancy there were so many stories published about her and her weight gain that really hurt her, and she claims that during this time, her views on how she wanted to be photographed changed a lot.
“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.”
Kim has said on more than one occasion that it was preeclampsia that caused her to gain a lot of the weight, most of which was due to bloating and swelling.
“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.”
The harsh comments that Kim Kardashian received during her first pregnancy would be enough to sour anyone’s mood, but being such a public figure, is it really all that shocking that she would choose to hide her smile?
