Kim Kardashian is bumpin' and proud!
Kardashian debuted her bare baby bump in an Instagram photo on Saturday. The 32-year-old beauty posed in a pair of tight black leggings and a white T-shirt in the double photo. In one frame she has her shirt down and in the other she has it rolled up to show her pregnant belly.
The reality star captioned the photo with a simple phrase: "Baby love."
"[She's] finally accepting her body and getting more comfortable," a source told Us Weekly. This is the first time Kardashian has showed her bare bump to the world, at six months along.
The big reveal comes after a smattering of headlines critiqued the E! star's changing body with stories about her incessant eating and her inflated weight gain. The fat-shaming of Kardashian has caused other celebrities to come to her defense.
“I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy,” mother-of-two Gwyneth Paltrow told ET Online. “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.”
Model Helena Christensen penned an about letter about the issue, writing: "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."
In a recent interview with E! News, Kardashian said she is loving her pregnant body now that her belly has "popped." Beau Kanye West also loves her curves and has helped her feel sexy throughout the process.
