Kourtney Kardashian says she is ‘proud’ she ‘gained a few pounds’ amid coronavirus quarantine

Kourtney Kardashian is sharing some body positivity in coronavirus quarantine.

During a video posted to YouTube Wednesday, the television personality, 41, discussed gaining weight while explaining how a commenter kept claiming she was pregnant in the comment section of a photo she posted.

"I commented back and said, 'This is the shape of my body. I've definitely gained a few pounds over this quarantine time and I love my body and I'm proud of my shape,' " she said. "And I'm obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body. I don't think I look pregnant at all. We're all shaped differently and that's my body and I'm proud of it. So that's how I respond to the negative comments. It's not always easy."

She added that she can sometimes be "more sarcastic" when responding to haters.

"I think 'kill them with kindness' is kind of my motto, and try not to really let those comments affect you," she said.

Staying Apart, Together:A newsletter about how to cope with the coronavirus pandemic

This isn't the first time the mother of three has gotten real about her body.

In an interview with Health in March 2020, the founder of lifestyle brand Poosh explained how she was leading by example in her quest to help women lead healthier lives.

Last summer, she shared a picture of herself confidently rocking a black one-piece swimsuit on the official Poosh Instagram account. Her followers couldn't help but notice one thing: her visible stretch marks.

Kardashian told Health she was surprised by the positive feedback she received.

"I’ve had stretch marks since eighth or ninth grade on the side of my booty. I never cared about them – I like them," she said.

Kardashian opted to post the photo from her Italian vacation without any Photoshop or edits, which drew praise from fans who commended her for embracing her flaws.
