5 Celebs Who’ve Defended Kim Kardashian’s Pregnancy Weight

When Kim Kardashian was pregnant with her daughter North, the media decided to get vicious, attacking Kim for packing on the pounds – something that was only natural for a pregnant woman to do – and they constantly monitored her weight loss following the birth to see how quickly she would “bounce back” from it all. The attention was unfair and many of Kim’s  fellow celebrities were shocked about the focus on her weight. They have all commented that it was just too much and completely horrible behavior to call a pregnant woman fat or point out her weight gain at that sensitive time. Here is what they’ve said on the subject.

Jessica felt sorry for Kim because she knew what she was going through: ”I felt for Kim – I knew exactly what she was going through … I send a lot of love her way, and I know she’ll come back with a bang.”

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly thinks it’s horrible to call out any pregnant woman for weight gain: ”I think its deplorable to call any pregnant women fat! People who say terrible things are usually saying what they think about themselves.”


Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth doesn’t believe women should be bashing other women: ”I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy, it’s a difficult time and I think Kim Kardashian looks absolutely beautiful. And we’re supposed to gain weight when pregnant — that’s how God intended it.”

Snooki was shocked by how the media tracked Kardashian’s weight gain: ”Just look at how Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian were tracked and criticised in the media. Awful! Worrying about weight gain made the nine months even harder. The one bright spot of pregnancy was eating whatever you wanted.”


Helena Christensen

Helena thinks it’s crazy what Kim had to put up with: “It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian. It’s enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women’s physical shapes; but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low. Whatever else the tabloid-media feel a sick need to spew out of their venomous bowels, let that be their lame choice. But there should be some moral compass. It doesn’t matter who the woman is or what she does. No one should ever be publicly judged for their body, but to attack an expecting mother is sacrilegious and just plain wrong. A pregnant woman should not be criticized for her shape, period!!”
