Kourtney Kardashian has shut down pregnancy speculation in the most spectacular way.
After marrying Blink 182’s Travis Barker last year, the reality star has had to deal with constant pregnancy rumours - despite her openly talking about her struggles with IVF both on Instagram and on the second season of The Kardashians.
Frustrated with a fan’s question in a recent Instagram comment, however, Kourt snapped back as she shared a post about her vitamin brand Poosh.
The brand recently launched Lemme Purr vaginal gummies (yes, that’s a thing), which contains pineapple to supposedly help balance the PH levels, umm, downstairs.
In a nod to the tropical flavoured gummies, the 43year-old wore a stunning highlighted yellow look with high-waisted leather trousers, crop top and strappy heels in the ad.
Surrounded by kitties (see what she did there), Kourtney showed off her latest creation in the playful reel on Instagram.
Whilst fans loved the tongue-in-cheek advert, some started to speculate that the entrepreneur had a baby bump in short Lemme campaign clip.
Almost immediately, Kourt hit back and spoke about how difficult IVF had been on her body.
Referring to her stomach, she said: “The after affects [sic] of IVF (I only acknowledge this comment bc I do think it’s important to know how IVF affects women’s bodies and it’s not spoken about much).”
The reality star has been honest about the serve side effects of the treatment, having previously said she’s struggled with weight gain, depression and menopause like symptoms.
Like most women, she has also struggled with her body image and expressed her frustration that she was being criticised for having a normal body, adding: “Also are we still asking women if they’re pregnant?”
It’s not the first time she’s clapped back at such rumours.
Before she married the Blink 182 drummer, she faced similar speculation in 2021 after she posted a photograph of herself in a hot tub.
Given the intense media attention she’s faced in recent years, the mum-of-three admitted that she’d even felt pressured to do IVF whilst appearing on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
“If you even look anything up online about things you can do to help get pregnant … it says on there, like, ‘If you’re over 40’ — or it might even say something younger — it says, ‘Go right away,’” she told the hosts.
“So, I felt a little bit pushed.”
The influencer also revealed that she and Barker had ended their IVF journey after experiencing so many side effects.
