She doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to talking about the totally unglamorous bits of pregnancy. Find out how this celebrity mummy is helping to normalise pregnancy when other celeb mums are glamourising it.
Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her second child, and we just love how candid she’s been about the experience of her pregnancy journey up to now.
Now, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star has tweeted about just how much weight she’s put on in her pregnancy, with six weeks to go before her due date:
Ok I'm 52 lbs up today….and I still have 6 weeks to go! I got my work cut out for me!!!! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

Helping make the ups and downs of pregnancy real
In the world of celebrities, pregnancy, like most other things, is made out to be a perfect experience.
Pregnant celebs seem to glow right through the nine months, they never seem to experience nausea, and of course, they never gain any extra kilos… except on their cute and stretchmark-free bumps of course!
In this rather unrealistic celebrity world, Kim Kardashian’s confessions about her not so glamorous pregnancy journey — including her latest weight-related tweet — are quite refreshing.
Her confession comes just a month after her honest admission about how much she dislikes pregancy — a sentiment many of us can relate to.
Kim K, who is due to give birth to a baby boy in December, revealed:
“For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! I’m not sure why I don’t like the experience like others do. Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf**k of how your body expands and nothing fits.
“I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin. It’s hard to explain. I don’t feel sexy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”
But despite this, Kim has embraced her pregnancy much more confidently than she did in 2013 when she was pregnant with North.
She says, “This time around, I know what I like — plus, I am confident and not trying to hide my bump. I actually want to accentuate it. It’s such a trip how your body grows and changes, and at the end of the day, you have to wear what you are comfortable in and what you feel good in.”
Wise words from this stunning mum, we think.
