Kim Kardashian strips off nude to prove she's pregnant and end surrogacy rumours
Kim Kardashian has tweeted a nude photo to prove she's really pregnant.
The reality TV star, who is five months pregnant with her second child, shared a side profile photo with her fans and said “I’m grateful to God for this miracle”.
Kim put to bed any gossip that she is using a surrogate mother to have another baby.
"You know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different," she told her fans.
The expectant mother posted a caption with the naked photo, hitting out at critics for analysing her body weight.
“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!”
Kim and her husband Kanye West have made no secret of their desire to have a brother or sister for their daughter North, and in a June episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Kim confirmed she is pregnant again.
That followed weeks of reports of the pair using IVF and considering surrogates in an effort to expand their brood.
Now everything is out in the open, the 34-year-old star couldn't be happier.
"I'm blessed to even be pregnant!" Kim said on Twitter today.
She said she was "luckier to not have preeclampsia so far" and she doesn't "have the swelling issue".
The star and her rapper spouse are delighted that things have worked out for them.
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.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) August 11, 2015

Becoming a mother has changed Kim completely.
When she found out she was pregnant with North, Kim worried about the timing but eventually reasoned that as she was in her 30s she should just get on with it. She hasn't looked back since, sharing that becoming parents has brought her and Kanye closer.
"She’s empowered us to want to be the best parents and the best spouses... Today North put on these Manolo heels of mine and was walking perfectly around my closet. I sent Kanye a video of her; he was like, 'Tell her to stop! She cannot grow up, she cannot wear your heels,'" she giggled.
