Her pout was perfected by her but Kim Kardashian has quit flashing her pearly whites.
The selfie queen has shown her unwillingness to grin isn’t affected by her husband Kanye West (who seldom seems amused), but stems from her first pregnancy.
She said she suffered from preeclampsia which caused her to bloat.
“It was the worst. I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, ‘She can’t stop eating’. I delivered at 180, and they were like, ‘She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat’ and all these ridiculous stories,” the 34-year-old said.
“It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off. I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken.
“Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. After I had the baby, I was like, these are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn’t control.”
“I don’t want to smile for them. I don’t want to be out,” she said.
“Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.”
“There were a couple of little operations to fix [the placenta accreta], so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again,” she said.
“It was a long road. I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating. I was trying everything: I did acupuncture and got a nutritionist to eat healthier, thinking that was an issue.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who’s pregnant with her second kid, also opened up about her fertility challenges.
She said she endured from placenta accreta, a high risk state where the rest of the placenta as well as blood vessels develop too deeply to the uterine wall.
It can lead to an early C section delivery in which a hysterectomy is done later.
