Khloe Kardashian says this bikini picture of her is not what she really looks like
I think we can all agree that any post-pregnancy body is incredible. Think about it for a second: mothers grow an actual human being inside them for nine whole months, then they push said human being out, and then look after their every need; feeding and burping them at their beck and call. Summary: women are amazing.
One thing that's not so amazing though? The societal pressure to get yourself back into shape after giving birth. As someone who lives her life in the full glare of the public eye, Khloe Kardashian knows all about this - but the new mum of baby True is keeping things real after her sister posted a picture of her post-baby bikini body on Instagram Stories.
The reality TV star was taking a rare moment to herself, relaxing by a pool in Los Angeles with her relatives, when her sister Kendall Jenner uploaded a picture of her to Instagram Stories.
Straight away, fans went into a frenzy, commenting on how impressive her post-baby body was. However, upon seeing the picture herself, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to Twitter to set the record straight.
She wrote: "And I’m just seeing that Kendall posted a video of me in a bikini… Thank God she knows her angles LOL cuz I do not look like I did in that video LOL laying down is a game changer. I had an hour to hang with Kenny while True was napping."
Her incredibly modest post spurred a big reaction from fans, who praised her for not reinforcing the unrealistic ideals out there of post-pregnancy bodies. Her Twitter followers also turned to the comment section to assure her that she was doing fabulously, no matter what the angle.
"You look amazing! You're a fantastic aunt and now an inspiring, beautiful mommy!" wrote Twitter user @SteffieLove24. "Dont be hard on yourself like that. Confidence is key and sister you got it, so flaunt it! I wish I could bounce back like you and I wish I could look as phenom as you! Love you
"you’re beautiful no matter which angle. you’re such an inspiration and give many people confidence in themselves," added @kyliesstormi.
In addition, Khloe's fans pointed out that, in her post, she seemed to be explaining herself to the millions when she wrote: "I had an hour to hang with Kenny while True was napping." Her adoring followers made it clear that this was not necessary, with @mads2208 writing: "Sister do NOT feel the need to explain every little thing you do. You rock at being a mommy, obviously, and you look goooood okuurrr. [sic]"
"You are beautiful no matter the angel girl and please dont feel the need to explain that your sweet girl was sleeping while you were hanging out every parent deserves a minute to theirselves!" commented @bonnieblair0730.
It's great to see that Khloe's fans are all so supportive of her. Besides, who's seriously bothered about mum-shamers, when you've got a baby as adorable as True?
