Kourtney Kardashian is not letting recent pregnancy rumours stop her from feeling proud of her body.
Earlier this month, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star posted a snap of herself lying down and reading a book while wearing a bikini, and several social media users began speculating whether she was expecting her fourth child. However, she promptly responded by admitting she had put on a “few extra pounds”.
In a Wellness Wednesday video posted on her lifestyle website Poosh’s YouTube channel, Kourtney addressed the speculation again and insisted the comments haven’t affected how she views her body.
“I commented back and said, ‘This is the shape of my body. I gained a few pounds over this quarantine time and I love my body and I’m proud of my shape and I’m obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body.’ I don’t think I look pregnant at all,” she shared. “We’re all shaped differently and that’s my body and I’m proud of it so that’s how I respond to the negative comments. It’s not always easy.”
The 41-year-old explained to followers that she tries to treat critics with kindness.
“Sometimes I can be more sarcastic but I think kill them with kindness is my motto and try not to let those comments affect you and if they do and you know that, then don’t look at comments,” Kourtney told a fan who asked how she protects her mental health from cyberbullying. “I know it’s easier said than done but really try to keep the positivity for your mental health.
“There’s so much positivity as well and I think we tend to focus on the negative and I notice for myself that the negative questions stand out to me where I just want to respond to those people sometimes even more than the positive ones, which isn’t always fair.”
Kourtney shares sons Mason, 10, and Reign, five, and daughter Penelope, seven, with her ex-partner Scott Disick.
