Kim Kardashian has been photographed by the paparazzi almost everyday since announcing her pregnancy, but her spread in Du Jour magazine marks the first time she starred in a formal photo shoot while pregnant.


The reality star was photographed by Bruce Weber in Miami while floating in a pool, lounging around with flowers in her hair, and even banging on some bongos in a backyard. She shows off her natural side by wearing minimal makeup, but doesn’t show off her baby bump. Keith Pollock, co-editor of Du Jour, assures that Kanye West’s baby mama was pregnant at the time, but that “she wasn’t really showing then.”


Aside from the pictures, Kardashian also opens up to the magazine about several hot topics. First up – her body! Not a day goes by that we don’t hear something new about Kim’s figure or how she accentuates it with her clothes. She admits that she sticks to wearing form-fitting ensembles because if she doesn’t show off her waist, her big boobs will make her look heavier. The still-married star also insists she “does not wear flats, not ever, unless she’s on the treadmill.”


As for how her life will change now that she’s expecting her first child, she says she feels “so blessed and excited and ready for the next phase.” She’s shifting her priorities and is dedicated to taking back some of her privacy during this phase too. Kardashian says West has taught her a lot about keeping certain aspects of her life out of the public eye. She wants to be less open about some topics, including her relationships, and is learning that not everyone needs to know everything about her.


It’s hard to imagine Kim keeping things under wraps now that she and the rest of the world have become accustomed to every detail being out in the open, but it’s certainly a great idea now that she’s starting a family. We’ll have to wait and see whether or not she follows through with this goal, but we’ll remain on baby bump watch for now!
