Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their second bundle of joy to the world on Saturday, Dec. 5, and the timing couldn’t have been better. Just one day earlier, the reality star shared a bare baby bump selfie via Instagram and captioned it with a message to her then-unborn son. On Monday, Dec. 7, Kim revealed on her website that the baby boy's name is Saint West.
“Ready whenever you are lol,” she wrote, showing off her baby belly in nothing but a sports bra and sweats.
But that’s not the first time the 35-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star made some pretty amusing quips about her pregnancy. Take a look back with Us Weekly at some of her most memorable comments on her road to baby No. 2.
Who’s Keeping Count?
On the midseason finale of KUWTK’s in May, Kardashian revealed that she and West, 38, had sex “500 times a day” to try to add a new member to their family and give North, 2, a little brother or sister.
“I’m, like, so over it,” she said during a doctor’s appointment on the episode. “Like, I’m exhausted, so I’m sure everyone gets to that point. I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m done.’”
Boy, Oh Boy!
The happy couple revealed that they were having a baby boy in June, and Kardashian let the cat out of the bag subtly in a caption for a sweet Father’s Day photo she shared of West and Nori together. “You’re such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!”
LOL, You Guys
Kardashian showed that she had a sense of humor by addressing the rumors that had swirled about her faking her pregnancy.
“I secretly loved the rumors I was faking my pregnancy bc I was so skinny! LOL,” she tweeted in July. “Well can’t hide it now 5 month (20weeks) and 20lbs up.”
Selfie, May I?
The mommy-to-be put critics to rest once and for all with a nude selfie that she posted to social media in early August.
“First they say I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it… Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it… SMH!” the reality star captioned the selfie, in which she leans against a wall completely in the buff. “Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger. It's all a part of the process. U know me well enough 2know I would document the process if I got a surrogate.”
Kardashian, who has been documenting her pregnancy via her website, KimKardashianWest.com, noted that she was embarrassed of her attempts to copy sister Kourtney Kardashian’s style when she was pregnant the first time.
“Everyone used to say Kourtney had the best pregnancy style, so I would borrow a dress she wore when she was pregnant and OMG it did not look the same!” she wrote. “I also look back at my last pregnancy looks and sometimes I am mortified.”
Tell It Like It Is, Kim!
No holding back — Kardashian let her fans know exactly how she felt about being pregnant via an honest post on her site in early October.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL!” she wrote. “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it.”
Issues, Issues, Issues
At seven months pregnant, Kardashian started sharing her frustrated sentiments about feeling “like a f—king whale” on her website. Among her problems: “too much heartburn” from Mexican candy; her son was “sitting” on her bladder; and she had to “pee every five minutes!”
Meta Met Gala
For Halloween, the glam reality star opted to don the ultimate costume — and dressed up as herself.
“I think I nailed the Kim K costume!” she captioned a shot of herself against a white backdrop, cradling her growing baby bump in the same infamous floral Riccardo Tisci gown she wore to the 2013 Met Gala.
Dem Skinny Dayz
Kardashian began taking to social media to vent her growing anxiety over her pregnancy body, posting several throwback photos of herself looking sexy and slim.
“Skinny day #imissu,” she captioned one shot in early November.
In a clip that she posted to her website, Kardashian bemoaned the weight that she’d gained throughout the pregnancy — especially in her hands.
“Ugh, these fat hands, my ring doesn’t even fit,” she says to BFF Jonathan Cheban and Kourtney in the short video, which was shot inside a car. “I am so tired, you guys. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.”
The Last Straw
Kardashian, who previously announced a Christmas Day due date for her son, noted in early December that she felt “fat as f--k” and couldn’t wait to give birth.
“My cankles are out of control,” she wrote, adding that she only wanted to wear footwear that were “Givenchy flip-flops and shell-toe sneakers, like the Adidas Superstars.”
