It's pretty much fact that ever since Kim Kardashian announced her second pregnancy she has been SLAYYYY-ING. 🔥
In fact, this pregnancy couldn't be more different to her first, two years ago. In fact, Kim has done absolutely everything differently.
1. The first time, the pregnancy wasn't planned and came at a time when Kim was legally still married to Kris Humphries, and without a place to live.
2. It was also a very difficult pregnancy.
3. This time around, Kim and Kanye were desperate to have another baby, and then struggled to conceive for 18 months.
In fact, much of Season 10 of KUWTK was centred around Kim's complicated struggle to have a second baby.
4. So when she finally did conceive, it was all the more special. In a recent episode of I Am Cait, Kim and Kanye were congratulated by Caitlyn Jenner's family – and Kim replied, "Thank you, it's something we've wanted for a long time."
BRB, dying at those smiles.
5. The announcement was way more low-key this time, which suggests Kim is happy to just sit back and enjoy this pregnancy without a media circus.
Last time, she announced the pregnancy on camera in a much-hyped episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, ensuring maximum OMG factor. As a result, she was hounded by paparazzi for her entire pregnancy. This time, the announcement was a tiny clip in a teaser trailer for the second half of Season 10 of KUWTK due to air an entire three months later. Kim then took three whole days (an eternity in her eyes) to acknowledge the news on social media.
6. Last time, she endured brutal criticism about her body.
She also seemed desperate to have her old body back and, in the face of media scrutiny, spent a lot of her first pregnancy sharing ~sexy~ #Throwback photos to remind herself and everyone else how "skinny" she was.
7. This time, she has made it completely clear that she does not care if her body changes and has publicly called out her haters with this photo and perfect caption.
She also seems totally proud of her bump, sharing this cute photo recently – something she never did during pregnancy number one.
In fact, she can't get enough of showing off her bump. ❤️
8. And then there's the fact that she is KILLING. IT. in the fashion stakes too. She's waved goodbye to the looks she was (again, unfairly) ridiculed for last time, and has come up with a whole new "strategy".
Speaking at the beginning of her pregnancy, Kim said: "I do think tighter clothes look better and more slimming, and I don't care how hot it is, I'm going to wear thin coats all summer to conceal my big arms. I'm going to have a strategy of just really simple this time."
As a result, her outfits have been replaced with ensembles like THIS. 😮 🔥 🙏
As well as this...
And all of these hot AF ones.
9. But the main difference is that, thanks to North and Kanye, Kim now feels like a "completely different person," and she's confident and excited about this arrival.
Speaking to Glamour, she said:
We are beyond excited. I'm a completely different person. I don't know if it's growing up or being with Kanye, who's more private, but I try and live my off time as privately as possible. I used to enjoy the spotlight. If I had a day off from filming, I didn't know what to do. Now I enjoy my family time so much, there is this sense of, If it all went away, and I was just a mum, I would love my life.
