Kim Kardashian is terrified of regaining her body hair while pregnant.

The reality TV star famously uses laser treatment to rid herself of unwanted follicles on her curvaceous body, but the beauty has been banned from the risky procedure now she's expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West and is worried that her body hair will grow back.

Kim, 32, is reportedly experiencing re-growth of undesirable hair triggered by her pregnancy hormones and has been forced to wax, which she hasn't done for years, according to TMZ.

It's said the concerned 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who is due to give birth in July - has already booked an appointment to zap away her newly grown hair as soon as the little tot is born.

Kim has made no secret about her plight in the past - blaming her unsightly hair growth on her Armenian roots.

She once said: ''I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms ... my entire body is hairless.''

However, hair growth isn't an uncommon side effect of being pregnant.

'Charlie's Angels' actress Drew Barrymore recently revealed that her pregnancy hormones were so overwhelming while expecting daughter Olive, she grew a beard.

She said: ''I got a wonderful little goatee, and it was red! I also got hyper pigmentation on my cheeks.''
