She continued, “I am convinced that I am definitely living for myself and I am trying to be the best mother, sister, daughter and friend. The world is a place full of suffering, but strengthening us through our experiences empowers us.”The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained that she and her kids “try to have private moments when everyone leaves the house,” including camera crews for the show.
Kourtney posed naked for this issue of GQ and opened up about body positivity and how she channels it. “I am very comfortable in my own skin and I think it is important to expose positive images of our body,” she said. A lot of that stems from her love of fitness and exercising, which “does my mind a lot of good.”She discussed posing naked twice—once while she was pregnant and once after she had Reign—and how it was an empowering experience for her. “A body during pregnancy is beautiful. I always enjoyed being pregnant, it’s a very beautiful state and that’s what I wanted to show,” she said. “In the second study, I was portrayed from behind, lying on the floor; I loved it, I felt power in my body and I wanted to transmit it to women.”
Kourtney also discussed the strong women in her family, especially with mom Kris Jenner at the helm. After her father Robert Kardashian died in 2003, Kourtney said the women came together and channeled his work ethic. “My dad had a very strong influence on us, even to this day he has it. It was when she died that, as sisters, we exercised that strength and started working,” she told the magazine.Despite a few tiffs on episodes of KUWTK or over social media, Kourtney explained that their vibrant personalities can cause some inevitable clashes at times. “We are definitely critical of one another, although that criticism always comes with unconditional love,” she revealed. “In addition, we know that we each have different ways of doing things and seeing life.”Photos: GQ Mexico/Michael Schwartz
