Kim Kardashian took A LOT of heat for her weight gain during her first pregnancy both on social media and in the mainstream media because somehow, a woman putting on a few pounds while she's, you know, creating a life is socially unacceptable. While seeing it from a distance was really sad and painful, we couldn't even imagine how that made Kim feel.

In a new interview with C Magazine, the reality star (who is currently pregnant with her second child) explains that the body-shaming she endured while pregnant with North West really took a toll on her.

"I delivered at 180, and they were like, 'She's 210 pounds. She's getting dumped because she's too fat' and all these ridiculous stories. It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight," she explained.

She says that she gained a total of 50 pounds, which was obviously tough to lose - she did it, but she had to do it right in front of the watchful eye of the entire world.

"I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken. Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about," she continued. "After I had the baby, I was like, these are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn't control. I don't want to smile for them. I don't want to be out. Even if I was more confident, I just didn't feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot."

Fortunately, Kim seems more confident now and hopefully the fact that she's embracing her pregnant body will make the haters wake up and realize that there is nothing MORE beautiful than a woman carrying a child.
