Is there such a thing as overcradling one’s baby bump?
According to Khloé Kardashian‘s critics, yes. The reality star, who has also been mommy-shamed for flying to Japan while eight months pregnant, took to Twitter to snap back at negative comments she claims to have received about her bump. Kardashian said she has waited years to have a baby and wants to relish this time as much as possible.
People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it’s MINE. I’ve waited for this VERY short moment for YEARS. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose. Mommy loves you baby! ❤️

Most of her followers were quick to agree with Kardashian, who is expecting her first child with NBA star Tristan Thompson. One even joked that she even cradled her “food baby,” to which Kardashian responded with three crying-with-laughter emojis.
Can’t believe she is getting a hard time for this people are too weird

I held and cradled my bump all day long the entire 8 months I was pregnant! I even cuddled it when I slept. You are gonna miss that bump when it’s gone I can tell you that. You do what’s best for you and baby!

God why are people such assholes!!!!! What a strange thing to comment on!! It’s a way of showing love, affection and protection for the precious little one growing inside.

She later posted this Instagram photo — a message to her haters, perhaps?
