Pregnant reality star Kim Kardashian has been slammed in the tabloids for the weight she’s put on while expecting, in what’s been labeled as “fat-shaming”-- an unfair taunt, considering healthy women are supposed to gain an average of 25 pounds when with child.
Fans are used to seeing pregnant celebrities gain weight in their bellies and rock the now-fashionable “baby bump,” but unlike string-bean models, Kardashian’s body got wide before her belly grew large. -- and she's painfully well aware of this.
"I struggle finding things that don't make me look heavy," she blogged earlier this year about how difficult it was to dress her new curves.
A harsh self-eval is one thing, but a celebutaunt can put a serious hurtin' on even the most resilient limelighter. The sexy businesswoman, however, isn’t letting the naysayers bring her down. She recently appeared on the cover of Us Magazine in a teeny eggplant and gold bikini with the headline: “You Call This Fat?” At least she has one celebrity publication on her side.
The 32-year-old proudly bared her 7-month pregnant belly while on a family vacation in Greece for the latest “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” series.
The reality star has reportedly settled into her pregnant body, and is loving her seventh month:
"She's loving the seventh month," an insider said about the pregnant designer, Us Weekly noted. "And she thinks pregnancy is so cute."
The fashionista was soaking up the sun in the island of Mykos with mom Kris Jenner; sisters Khloe, Kourtney Kendall and Kylie; Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick; and their two kids, Mason and Penelope
Kardashian’s boyfriend and the father of her unborn child, Kanye West, was visibly absent from the European getaway.
The new season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” is set to premiere June 2 at 9/8c on E!
