Kim Kardashian might present a heavily filtered life via her Instagram and other social media endeavors, but she got super-real when she described the effects that pregnancy had on her self-esteem—and sex life.
In a new interview with
Richardson , an “erotica” magazine (in which she spoke with American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis, no less), she opened up about how pregnancy altered her view of herself—and how she came back from it.
“I was somebody who gained 60 or 70 pounds in my pregnancies and felt so unlike myself and so unsexy,” she said.
During both pregnancies (she would have a surrogate for her third child), Kardashian dealt with preeclampsia and birthing complications.
