Kourtney Kardashian ‘surprised’ by positive reaction to stretch mark photo

Kourtney Kardashian was stunned by the positive reaction she received after sharing a photo of her stretch marks on social media.

The reality TV star posted a picture on Instagram of her posing on the back of a yacht while on vacation in August, with her high-cut black swimsuit revealing a series of small stretch marks on her hips.

“Thank you so much for not editing out your stretch marks!!” one user exclaimed in the comments on the post, to which the mother-of-three replied: “I love my stripes.”


And in a new cover interview with Health magazine, Kourtney confessed she was shocked by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to her body.

“I was surprised by that. I’ve had stretch marks since eighth or ninth grade on the side of my booty. I never cared about them – I like them!” she laughed.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also opened up about her workout regime, and said since having her three children – Mason, 10, seven-year-old Penelope, and Reign, five – her gym sessions are now all about maintenance.

“As far as my workouts, I feel really good. I notice better results when I mix it up between trainers or do boxing, so I don’t get burned-out or bored. I’ve also made an effort to get into skincare. I put on a serum every day right out of the shower, under my lotion,” the 40-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Poosh founder revealed that she scolds members of her famous family whenever she finds troublesome items in their fridges.

“I say, ‘OK, guys, what’s it going to take for everyone to stop using plastic water bottles?’ I’ve pretty much gotten everyone switched over to boxed water or glass. But when I go to my family’s houses and I see nonorganic milk or fruit or vegetables, it really bothers me,” Kourtney insisted.
