Kim Kardashian had two high-risk pregnancies, prompting her to use a surrogate for the next two, and to that was added media mockery about her physique.
“They always compared me to Kate Middleton saying 'Kate the skinny and Kim the whale, the skinny against the whale'.
It was so mean.
I didn't think it would pass today, and it killed my self-esteem.
I stayed home and cried all the time, ”she revealed in Kristen Bell and Monica Padman's podcast, We Are Supported By.
Seeing the other women in the family have a happy pregnancy didn't help either.
“I was so used to seeing my mom pregnant, my sister (Kourtney) pregnant, and all of them were beautiful and had easy deliveries.
Everything was great and they got over it right away.
It was not my case, ”adds the businesswoman.
Ill-being and life at risk
The young mother was indeed so ashamed of her post-pregnancy body that she refused to go to the gym.
“I didn't want people to see me trying to lose weight.
I gained 31 kilos.
I was going to sit in my mother's garage where it was probably 45 ° C in the middle of summer in Calabasas.
My daughter was in a stroller and I was training in the garage trying to do what I could until I got there, ”added the founder of shaping lingerie brand Skims.
Kim Kardashian also thanked Kanye West, whom she filed for divorce last February, for helping her worry less about what others think of her.
