Kourtney Kardashian is making no apologies for her quarantine body.

On Wednesday, the 41-year-old released a new video on her lifestyle brand Poosh’s YouTube channel where she answered wellness-related questions from fans. When one fan asked how Kardashian protects her mental health from cyber-bullying, the reality star referred to a recent social media exchange, where a follower suggested she looked pregnant.

“I commented back and said, ‘This is the shape of my body. I definitely gained a few pounds over this quarantine time and I love my body and I'm proud of my shape and I'm obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body,’” the mother-of-three told viewers. “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.”

Despite having more than 92 million followers, many of whom are supportive of the eldest Kardashian sibling, she admits it’s “not always easy” to ignore negative comments.

“Sometimes I can be more sarcastic, but I think kill them with kindness is kind of my motto,” Kardashian added. “Try not to let those comments affect you and if they do and you know that, then don't look at comments. I know it's easier said than done, but really try to keep the positivity for your mental health.”

Kardashian previously addressed how she handles comments that she looks pregnant in an Instagram Live last month. While chatting with POOSH COO Sarah Howard, Kardashian’s once again shared how she likes to combat any criticism with kindness.

In April, Kardashian shared a photo of herself wearing a button down orange dress that revealed a hint of her stomach.

“So many of the comments were like, ‘Are you pregnant? Baby no. 4?’ … I could’ve taken that offensively … but I know that I didn’t look pregnant,” she told Howard. “I know what my body looks like when I’m pregnant. I’ve been pregnant three times.”

Instead of getting upset, Kardashian replied with a praying hands emoji and wrote, “Put the blessing out there though.”

The star told Howard she doesn’t mind when people suggest her body looks pregnant.

“It’s very feminine to have curves and I embrace my body, so I didn’t take it offensively,” she said. “Instead, I wrote back, ‘Oh, let’s put the good blessings out there.’ Like, put out a good vibe.”
