Perception means a lot to Kim Kardashian who tells ET that self-confidence affects all aspects of her life.
“Having a positive self-image has always been important to me because it affects so many aspects of my life: my work, my relationship with my husband and my life as a mom,” Kim says.
“During my first pregnancy, I just wanted to cover up,” she adds. “I wasn’t used to how being pregnant made me feel, and I honestly had a hard time being comfortable with it.”
Kardashian was more confident the second time around as her husband, Kanye West, helped with her maternity style. “I loved finding looks that showed off my pregnancy curves,” she shares. “A big source of my confidence is my husband,” Kim continues. “I’m my own biggest critic, and Kanye is my biggest supporter. He always encourages me, and makes me feel confident about owning all my curves and showing them off.”
Kim has faced her share of post-pregnancy challenges in terms of weight loss but, with Kanye’s support, manages to maintain a healthy perception of her body. “As North gets older, she’ll start to be more aware of herself and her body,” the celebrity mom rationalizes. “Her attitude toward her body is directly related to my own, so it’s my responsibility to make sure she understands that positive body image comes from having a healthy self-esteem.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have two kids. North is the couple’s oldest child who celebrated her third birthday in June. Saint is the Wests’ son who will commemorate his first birthday in December.
