During this week’s new episode of the Hulu original series The Kardashians, Kourtney Kardashian vulnerably spoke about her pregnancy journey and how the endless rumors about her body truly affected her.
In previous months, fans speculated the Poosh founder was expecting a child with her fiancé Travis Barker. Fans believed this to be the case because of suspicious photos and Instagram stories Kardashian had posted. A photo of the reality star hiding her belly in a hot tub and various Instagram stories showing a curvier side of the celebrity are examples of the posts that had fans convinced. Though these posts were, in some ways, grounds for fans to believe Kardashian and Barker were expecting at the time, we now know all the rumors did was hurt Kourtney Kardashian greatly.
Kourtney Kardashian opens up about pregnancy struggles
“The medication that they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause,” Kardashian told her mother before also revealing to her that the drug has her feeling depressed more often than not.
In addition to her adverse side effects, the 43-year-old celebrity stated that she’s having an “opposite reaction” to IVF, which is all around greatly affecting her confidence, but social media’s harsh words certainly affected her the most.
In the new episode, Kourtney Kardashian expressed: “Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant’, ‘Kourtney’s gained so much weight.’ And I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”
Thankfully, just like she did with Kim Kardashian when she vented about her divorce, Kris Jenner swooped in to save the day with some uplifting words, stating (and manifesting) that her eldest daughter and her fiancé will have the child they’ve been asking for in “a year from now.”
As always, we wish nothing but the best for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, and like Kris Jenner, hope that they will be expecting a child very soon.
