Kylie Jenner Got Real About Struggling With Her Post-Baby Body

Diply 25 Oct 2018

Speaking from zero personal experience, being a new mother is hard work.

I'm basing all my knowledge on what I've seen my own friends and family go through, but also celebrities, who either make it look ridiculously easy, or the most challenging thing they've ever done.

Of course, it wouldn't be 2018 if we didn't know how the Kardashians/Jenners kept up with motherhood, right?

You know what I find really funny?

90% of the time there are people on social media who make comments like "Why are we still talking about the Kartrashians?", and they make it clear that they do NOT care to keep up with them.

And that's perfectly fine.

But when rumor spread that Kylie Jenner was pregnant, there were plenty of you who changed your tune really quickly and wanted to know the true tea.

I see you. That's all I'm saying.

Kylie managed to keep her entire pregnancy a secret, and only revealed it to us after she had given birth.

We were all shook, but thankfully, Kylie has gone back to her very public ways and doesn't have any problem sharing her post-baby journey.

There was the time she took to Twitter after a lengthy break and answered fans questions, which were mostly about her daughter, Stormi.

She calmed fans fears about giving birth, and talked about how she couldn't wait to see Stormi grow up, but also didn't want her to at the same time. Typical new mom stuff.

Kylie taking on motherhood hasn't been entirely easy while being in the public eye.

It's pretty sad, but the girl has been mommy-shamed more times than I can count.

But still, she carries on and does her thing, I'm sure with her older sisters helping her out.

After all, they've been doing the whole motherhood thing under the microscope of the public eye for years longer than Kylie has.

Actually, that theory was recently proven to be true in a promo clip for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kim walks into what I first thought was Kylie's bedroom, but it turns out it was just her closet.

Anyway.

Kim sees Kylie folding a bunch of clothes, and Kylie explains that she's getting rid of clothes that don't fit anymore.

"Like, nothing in my closet fits me!" Kylie tells Kim.

Kim instantly snaps into sister mode, and listened carefully to Kylie's struggles with trying to fit into her pre-baby clothes.

"I know I'm not going to fit into a 25 jean ever again," she says.

"After a shoot I'm feeling a little insecure. I feel like my hips have just spread..." Kylie says.

"To the point of no return," Kim helpfully adds.

Kim explained that curves are hard, and she totally understands the pressure to get back to your original body.

"The pressure to snap back, it took me a good six to eight months. Once I got there, I was like okay, I'm never leaving," she said.

She tried advising Kylie to wear two or even three pairs of shapewear and get out of the house, but Kylie was not having it.

"I never cared for those things," she said.

"You just have to roll with it. You just have to, like, be confident and get some things that make you feel good about yourself, and find your balance," Kim urged.

"Honestly, you do inspire me a lot. If Kim can do it, I can do it," she said, seemingly appearing more confident than before.

I guess this is all a good lesson in remembering that not everything we see on social media is how it is in real life.

We really don't know how somebody is feeling about their body, and just because to us they might look amazing in a photo, doesn't mean that's how the person is feeling.

Other celeb moms, like Blake Lively, for example, have opened up about their post-baby bodies.

And it's pretty inspiring to hear that it's not an easy journey for everyone, and that's perfectly okay.
