Kim Kardashian West On Her Pregnancy & Haters This Time Around: "I Don't Give A F—k"
I will admit, I was once a Kim Kardashian West hater. Hey, we all have our moments, but I've learned from my mistakes and I've since hopped on the Kardashian train — and not just because I want Khloe Kardashian to be my best friend (that's totally not weird or creepy at all). But after getting the chance to meet with Kim at her event for Hype Energy Drinks (a company owned by a photographer she says she met through her stylist) in Nashville, I'm more on board than ever. As the star told reporters at the event, Kim Kardashian's second pregnancy is not about dealing with the haters. And when it comes to that subject, this woman could be teaching a master class.
"I don't give a f—k what anyone thinks this time around," Kardashian West told a group of reporters when asked how she'll handle the media scrutiny this time around. As many of you well know, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was subject to some pretty nasty criticism over her weight gain, wardrobe, and even her choice of footwear when she was pregnant with North West. This time, the future mother of two simply isn't having it.
"Last time I would eat a donut every day, this time I have a nutritionist," she added. "But at the end of the day I don't know when this will happen again so I'm really trying to enjoy the moment and enjoy the pregnancy and try to just roll with that. I'm gonna get bigger, that's OK."
Earlier in the day, Kardashian West was also pretty straight forward on Twitter when people began speculating that she was using a surrogate:
Frankly, I couldn't be more thrilled at Kimmy's outlook on this pregnancy. Not only has it been public knowledge, thanks to Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that her road to pregnancy has been a tough one, but the media mogul has also weathered such ruthless scrutiny of her body — something no one, no matter how famous they are, should ever have to deal with. Yes, she is going to get bigger and you're damn right that's OK: She is literally bringing another life into this world, maybe leave her alone about what kinds of dresses she's going to be able to wear — in fact, maybe take this rule and apply it to everyone ever no matter what their circumstances are.
Still, at the end of the day, the haters are gonna hate, hate, hate, whether you're the most famous woman in the world or an average person going about your day. We could all do well to take a page out of Kim K's book and not "give a f—k."
You go, Kimmy.
