Pregnant reality TV star Kim Kardashian has exposed her bare baby bump for the first time.
She posted two pictures to her Instagram account on Saturday that showed her burgeoning belly. The 32-year-old celebrity posted two side-by-side photos in the same outfit, one with her shirt covering her pregnant belly and the other with her white T-shirt above the bump.
For the caption, Kardashian simply wrote, “Baby love.”
"[She's] finally accepting her body and getting more comfortable," a source told Us Weekly. Though she is six months pregnant, this is the first time Kardashian has bared her bump to her fans, and with good reason.
She has been slammed in the tabloids lately, with many of them saying she weighs more than 200 pounds and is using pregnancy to turn into an incessant eater.
But KK’s new photo shows she’s quite healthy and very pregnant.
Though the tabloids might be tormenting the famous starlet, some Hollywood celebs are in her corner.
“I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy,” mother-of-two Gwyneth Paltrow told ET Online. “It’s a difficult time, and I think Kim Kardashian looks absolutely beautiful. And we're supposed to gain weight when pregnant -- that’s how God intended it.”
Usually praised for her gorgeous looks, KK has fell victim to what some have called “fat shaming” since she announced she’s pregnant.
Model Helena Christensen penned an open letter about “fat shaming,” in the media writing: "It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian. It's enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women's physical shapes, but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low."
Kardashian's revealing picture comes just a day before the season finale of “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” where commercials reveal the raven-haired beauty tells her older sister for the first time that she’s expecting a child.
The show premieres on E! Sunday night at 10 EDT.
