For some reason, the world is fascinated that a pregnant woman is gaining weight.
Kim Kardashian’s bikini bump made headlines again this week, when the Keeping up with the Kardashians star “flaunted” her pregnancy figure on a Grecian beach. We put flaunted in quotes not because there isn’t a lot to flaunt about Kim’s new physique – she’s a pregnant lady after all and even the extra pounds don’t take away from that holiday glow – but because it’s highly doubtful whether the eldest Kardashian sister was flaunting anything, considering she clearly wasn’t aware that she was being snapped by the paps.
The sex tape-maker-turned-entertainment-mogul has spoken at length about her issues with pregnancy and it’s no secret that she isn’t thrilled with the so-called “miracle of life” "I struggle finding things that don't make me look heavy," she blogged early in her pregnancy, later telling Ryan Seacrest that pregnancy wasn't all it was cracked up to be. "I was waiting for this amazing experience where I can just do whatever I want, eat whatever I want, feel great. And it just hasn't been great," Kim said. "I'm just in a lot of pain everywhere. It's a really painful thing. I'm in pain, physically." Reading quotes like that makes it pretty hard to believe that Kim K would turn her pregnancy into a fashion statement, which is the angle some publications have decided to go with.
Nevertheless, the Kardashian is powering through her final two months of pregnancy, so she can look forward to the end of the pain, the restrictions and the necessity for tailor-made outfits, like her questionable gown for the Met Gala on May 7.
The Kardashian hit the red carpet last night in what looked remarkably like a remodelled table cloth.
