Kim Kardashian On Her Pregnancy Weight Gain: ‘I Got So Huge And It Felt Like Someone Had Taken Over My Body’

Kim Kardashian may appear to be one of the most self-confident people on the planet - but it has not always been this way, especially when she was pregnant with her daughter North and battled with her weight gain

Speaking to Elle UK, as part of their Confidence Issue, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said, ‘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.’


‘I think God was doing this for a reason,’ the reality star, 34, added. ‘He was saying: “Kim, you think you're so hot, but look what I can do to you.”’

The happy mum to daughter North West has one of the most revered figures in the world, which she recently showed off for all to see on the cover of Paper magazine, but she admitted she didn’t always have body confidence.


Here's my 2nd @ElleUK cover! So proud to be a part of the confidence issue!

‘It’s taken me a long time to be happy with my body and for my confidence to grow to what it is today,’ she admits. ‘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.’

Kim has recently spoken out about her struggle to get pregnant and how she was ready to have her eggs frozen, before she fell pregnant naturally with North. And now she can’t wait to have more children.

‘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.’
