So adorable! Kim Kardashian revealed her most intimate, adorable pictures of baby North yet on ‘Ellen’ on Jan. 17, but she also told the beloved host that she had a ‘tough’ pregnancy that she ‘wouldn’t wish upon anyone!’ Check out the full video interview below!
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and baby North West seem to be the perfect family, but Kim revealed during a shockingly raw Jan. 16 Ellen show interview that her pregnancy with North was mentally and physically draining.
Kim Kardashian: Kris & Kourtney Lied About Easy Pregnancy
Kim was so sweet to show Ellen her favorite pictures of baby North, but when the conversation turned to the miracles of pregnancy, Kim was refreshingly real and honest about how difficult it can be on a woman’s body.
“[Women who say pregnancy is easy] are lying,” Kim said. “They are lying to you. I’m telling you. Kourtney said that, my mom said that. I was literally giving birth and I looked at my mom and I said, ‘I’m going to get you a medal. You deserve everything.”
Kim said that a lot of the struggle came from weight gain and medical issues — not the labor itself.
“My labor was easy, but just the whole pregnancy was so… I had a few medical issues, so it was really tough,” Kim admitted. “I gained a lot of weight… It was really hard mentally on me.”
Kim On Pregnancy: ‘All Worth It In The End’
Of course, Kim was quick to say that it was all worth it in the end — in fact, she couldn’t stop beaming about seven-month-old North. And with those pics, can you blame her?
“She changes all the time,” Kim gushed. “One day she’ll look like Kanye, one day she’ll look like me. It’s so crazy. And her personality is so cute! She is really calm and really quiet.”
We’re so happy that Kim is loving motherhood so much, and is finding happiness with North despite her difficult pregnancy.
“It’s all worth it in the end, so I would definitely suffer through [pregnancy again], but pregnancy was not a good experience for me. At all,” she concluded.
