Pregnant celebrities are often criticized for their weight gain, (or in some cases, lack of weight gain,) but it’s compounded when they’re someone like Kim Kardashian, who basically made a brand out of every waking minute of her life.
Kim Kardashian, who is now almost six months pregnant is 5’2″ tall and according to her, so far she’s put about 20 pounds on her non pregnancy weight of 120. According to the reality star there are numerous reports out now that she currently weighs 200 pounds.
She told OMG Insider:
“It says that I’m like 200 pounds on there. That’s like, definitely a good 60 pounds off. It’s ridiculous. Obviously you don’t want to be called fat, but I’m pregnant. I would hope to gain some weight.
What’s so funny is I love junk food and I love fast food, I love sweets, ice cream. I haven’t been able to eat any of that since I’ve been pregnant. I am so sad that I’m not craving like In-N-Out and Taco Bell. None of it. That’s what I was craving before. I’m craving like carrots and celery with ranch.
I wore this like leather skirt and by the way it’s a maternity skirt that I had made. Like everything is bigger. And they’re like, ‘Oh you can’t wear anything tight. That is ridiculous.’ They have pregnancy Spanx that are tighter than the skirt I’m wearing. I want to feel good about myself and still feel fashionable. That’s who I am. Happy mommy, happy baby.”
Pregnant Kim is often snapped by the paparazzi exiting the gym, and according to an US Weekly report, Kim often walks on the treadmill at home, or uses one of Tracy Anderson’s strength-training DVDs. She recently blogged about her efforts to stay fit, and eat healthy while pregnant.
What do you think? Is the criticism of Kim’s weight out of control?
