Kourtney Kardashian reveals she gained 45 lbs during pregnancy
During her pregnancy Kourtney Kardashian gained 45 lbs, more than the 25 to 35 lbs that doctors recommend.
“I gained nearly 45 pounds,” Kourtney Kardashian, 33, explained.
“I’m 5 feet tall, so that’s a lot.”
But with her daughter only just six weeks old Kourtney Kardashian is “not really” thinking about losing the weight just yet.
“While I’m here around the house, I just eat healthy,” the reality star told Us Weekly.
Her relaxed approached to losing the weight will come as a relief to her family, after Kourtney Kardashian collapsed following the birth of her son Mason, now two.
Having gained 45lbs in that pregnancy Kourtney Kardashian went on a fitness and health drive, which led to the breast feeding mother losing 33 lbs in three months as she slimmed down for a bikini photoshoot.
The speed of her weight loss led to health issues, documented in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Viewers saw Kourtney Kardashian helped by paramedics after fainting during a run on the beach.
After the scare, Kourtney Kardashian said: “I’m so embarrassed that I punished my body for a photo shoot.
“I’ve been obsessing about this weight thing a little too much.”
It seems that she has now learnt her lesson, taking a healthy approach to her post-baby body.
Penelope Scotland Disick joined the Kardashian clan on July 8, with the birth a family affair.
Kourtney Kardashian was joined by her partner Scott Disick, her sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, brother Rob Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner.
The delivery was “really easy”, Kourtney Kardashian said – and just like with son Mason she delivered the baby herself, pulling her out.
“I did,” she told Us Weekly.
“She was coming out, and I was thinking, I should pull her.
“With Mason, I had no idea I was going to do that. This time, I thought, This is what I’m supposed to do.”
