Just when you thought you’d seen all sides of every Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian follows up sister Kim’s attempt to break the internet with a nude photo shoot conducted while nine months pregnant with her third child. Kourtney’s no stranger to exposing viewers to the wonders of childbirth, of course; who can forget, for better or worse, the memorable scene of Keeping Up With the Kardashians showing her reaching down to pull out her second child? The shoot, done in collaboration with Brian Bowen Smith, only reinforces the oldest sister’s role as the pacifying, nurturing one, though, especially since she says her decision to publicly de-robe was contingent on the fact that she’s pregnant. ”It’s such an amazing feeling…this is what my body was meant to do.”
What made you want to take these pictures?
I had done a nude shoot when I was pregnant with Mason, really last minute just for myself, and I love it. The photo is hanging in the entry of my mom’s house. It actually used to be in her bedroom next to her bed but Bruce would always make a comment about having it in his room. But it was really beautiful. This time, we were shooting for our show, and everyone on our camera crew was like, “You are so comfortable just walking around naked and pregnant!” And Scott, who stopped by with Kim said the same thing to me, like “How are you fine just standing there like naked with all these people around?!”
So you’re not self-conscious as a pregnant person?
To me, nudity is not something to be ashamed of. I’m not embarrassed of my body. I’m at my best when I’m pregnant. It’s such an amazing feeling, the transformation that your body goes through. There’s something about that that’s so empowering and beautiful and I just really embrace it.
