Khloé Kardashian fires back at haters with post-baby body workout pictures
In April this year, Khloé Kardashian gave birth after months of fans eagerly anticipating the third new entrant to the Kardashian-Jenner family in 2018.
There was a period of time in which we were kept into the dark about what was happening, but on the whole we got a lot more information than we got from Kylie Jenner during her intensely secretive pregnancy.
Back in December, Khloé announced the baby was on the way with a sentimental Instagram message to her fans, in which she wrote:
"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.
"I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned!
"I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!"
Then, on April 12, it was reported that she gave birth to her first child, whose name was later revealed to be 'True'. During this period, there were also claims that her partner, Tristan Thompson, had been unfaithful, which didn't exactly help things go along smoothly.
It was also announced that Keeping Up With The Kardashians was planning to air footage of the birth - so it's fair to say that Khloé has been in the public eye a fair amount as of late.
Now, Khloé has a little more control over her public image, showing her 'post-baby body' on Snapchat, five weeks after giving birth. She showed her fans how she had returned to the gym (her "sanctuary"), partly to hit back at those who had shamed her online. In her story, she said:
"What I’m annoyed about is that I’ve read a couple of times on Twitter that, you know, they feel that I’m focusing too much on my body, but the truth is, I’ve worked out five or six days a week before I got pregnant and that’s my sanctuary and something I love to do.
"So I want to start doing that now and getting into my rhythm and in between feedings I want to find time to work out because that’s going to be my new normal.
"Just because I have a baby, doesn’t mean I have to stop doing the things that I love, and I love working out and getting my mind right."
I'm sure there are women who want to return to the things they love after pregnancy all the time. Usually, it's probably one of the many fun things pregnant women aren't allowed to do, rather than the gym... but each to their own!
