Honey, he's home! Kim Kardashian's sexy, super-revealing bathing suit selfie — in which she showed off her post-baby booty in a skimpy white one-piece — sent fans into a tizzy on Wednesday, Oct. 16. But no one was more excited by the photo than the reality star's boyfriend, Kanye West.
"HEADING HOME NOW," the rapper tweeted shortly after Kardashian posted the picture on Instagram.
West, 36, has been his girlfriend's most vocal supporter since the birth of their daughter, North, four months ago. When her post-pregnancy weight loss plateaued this summer, he made sure she knew he thought she was gorgeous at any size.
"Kanye tells her she's beautiful," a source told Us Weekly in August. "He wants to boost her confidence and goes out of his way so she doesn't have to ask."
He has even volunteered on occasion to be her workout buddy. Last week, he accompanied Kardashian, 32, to a Barry's Bootcamp class in Santa Monica, Calif.
"It was super early and grueling workout," an insider told Us of the outing, noting that both stars were "all smiles, showing affection toward each other and being very encouraging."
Kardashian has been hard at work in recent weeks getting her pre-baby figure back — and it looks like it's paying off. In addition to regular workouts, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is sticking to a strict carb-free diet.
"She is eating lots of lean proteins, healthy fats like nuts and avocado, carbs, fruits, veggies, and cheese," a rep for the Atkins diet told Us. "She wanted to be a healthy, nursing mom and not toxify her milk with her diet or lose weight too quickly. She's been doing Atkins since her doctor approved it at the end of June."
