Kim Kardashian has been open about the difficulties of her pregnancy with North West, and now she's revealing why she really thinks she gained a significant amount of weight during that time.

"I'd think God was doing this for a reason," she told Elle U.K. "He was saying: 'Kim, you think you're so hot, but look what I can do to you.'"

She continued, "My body just went crazy. After five months I swore I'd never get pregnant again. I got so huge and it felt like someone had taken over my body."

The 34-year-old also admitted to the women's magazine that she wasn't always so confident in her own skin.

"It's taken me a long time to be happy with my body and for my confidence to grow to what it is today. I grew up when the body to have was the tall, slim, supermodel one, like Cindy Crawford's. No one looked like me," she shared.

"It's good to break the mould and recreate one. I'm an Armenian girl, I have shape, and it turned out people liked that. That makes me feel good about myself and about other women for being so supportive. I am a confident woman, but I didn't just arrive confident—it has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now."

She also confessed that she was having an especially hard time coming to terms with her now-famous curves when she was a young teen.

"When I was 13 my father wrote me a letter. I was unhappy with my body—I developed really early. Every night I would sit in the bath and cry, I prayed my boobs would stop growing. He told me I had a body not many girls have, that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth."
