If you’ve ever felt unsatisfied with your body, you probably thought that you’d do anything to look like Kourtney Kardashian. But it turns out that even someone who looks like this can still get pressured by people who think that she looks overweight enough to be pregnant.
Kourtney recently posted on her Instagram page these hot photos of herself relaxing in a bikini.
She looks stunning, of course, but what astonished everyone is that a number of her followers noticed that her curves were a little more pronounced than usual, and asked if she was pregnant.
Yeah, you read that right. If only we looked like that when we’re pregnant! But it’s true, people really commented on her photo full of excitement that she’s pregnant, because people are just not that used to seeing celebrities with anything other than a super-flat stomach.
If you ever gave birth you know that feeling when a random stranger, or a family friend, or perhaps your aunt smiles and asks how many weeks along you are, when the truth is that you gave birth 6 months ago and this is your first time in non-maternity jeans.
If you ever gritted your teeth and stammered out some kind of explanation, you’ll want to screenshot Kourtney’s response so you can trot it out yourself in the future. To the delight of every single mom who’s had to come to terms with a post-pregnancy body that doesn’t look much like Kourtney’s, this queen shut down pregnancy rumors with the perfect reply.
“This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it. I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body.” writes Kourtney in reply.
It’s a reply that has won her another few hundred fans who are tired of the pressure for women to constantly look skinny and slender. In a single short post, Kourtney Kardashian presses back against the pressure to be skinny at all costs, embraces having a few extra curves, and reminds women everywhere that the fact that your body looks different once you’ve given birth is nothing to be ashamed of.
Or as one fan wrote:
“Kourtney loving her body is the most beautiful part of her. Yes, she is very pretty, but her refusal to let society tell her that she should be ashamed of how she naturally and healthily looks is stunning. This is the mentality we want to teach our daughters. We want our daughters to know there is no wrong way to have a body and that all bodies are beautiful.”
This is what we mamas need to hear. Bring it on, Kourtney!
