Amid fashion flack, Kim Kardashian ditched belly-covering garments and bared it all in a new Instagram posted on Saturday.
In the self-portrait, Kim, who is expecting her first child with Kanye West, poses in front of a mirror and exposes her generous bump, writing "Baby Love."
Kim blogged about maternity fashion on Friday, and wrote in March, "For me, I've found that I've gained inches and I've gotten wider but my belly hasn't popped yet. At this stage I guess I'm more focused on concealing the weight gain than I am about dressing the bump, just because it hasn't popped yet." Kim's new Instagram suggests she won’t have that problem going forward, as it appears that she has, in fact, "popped."
Kim’s sister Khloe said in an interview exclusive to ET that criticism of her sister's weight was "disgusting." Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow told ET Thursday, "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."
