Kim Kardashian Defends Controversial Pregnancy Comments, Claiming 'I Was Joking When I Said Pregnant Women Should Hide Indoors'

Kim Defends Controversial Pregnancy Comments

Kim Kardashian has defended comments she made in a recent interview, claiming she was “joking” when she suggested women should “stay indoors” and “hide” during their pregnancy.

The reality star - who has a one-year-old daughter with her rapper husband Kanye West - was being interviewed alongside her sisters Kourtney and Khloe by Elle, when she was asked about her pregnancy styling tips.

“That's really my recommendation. Wear a huge blanket.”

However, after being heavily criticised for her comments, Kim - who was lambasted by some critics in the media over her own styling decisions while she was pregnant with North West - has now insisted that she made the remarks in jest, lamenting: “I guess you can't be sarcastic when doing interviews!”

However hiding indoors isn’t the only tip Kim has to offer new mums, as earlier this month she revealed her advice for women trying to balance a career with motherhood, claiming that for her the key is prioritising.

She also hit back at those who say women can’t “have it all” in another interview, saying that her mum Kris Jenner taught her from a young age that it is possible to juggle a working life and having a family.
