Television personality Kim Kardashian sparked controversy when she posted a naked selfie in bed -- right after the birth of her third child via surrogate.
In the photo, which was posted to the reality star's Instagram, Kardashian is seen laying in bed completely naked with her breasts censored. Her arms were placed behind her head and a white sheet covered the lower part of her body. The photo was captioned "night cap."
Just two hours before, Kardashian shared a throwback photo of herself in underwear seated on the hood of a Rolls Royce.
Kardashian wrote in a blog post about the experience of having her child through a surrogate.
"Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it's the easy way out is completely wrong," she wrote, BBC reported.
"People assume it's better because you don't have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."
The socialite described the "great" relationship she had with the surrogate, whom she "trusted completely throughout the entire process."
"I'm so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible. It's not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I've ever had," she wrote. "Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true."
Some readers criticized the naked selfie after it was posted online.
"There is no doubt she is getting more desperate for attention lately. After all she is just few short years from 40, and her youngest sisters Kendall and Kylie have generated more interest than her recently. She always saw herself as the star of the family, the pretty one, the sexy one, Remember how on the opening of the show, she would always push everyone to the side and place herself front and center?" one Daily Mail reader commented.
"She craves attention over her looks, because she has no talent to fall back on, and on top of all of this, she has those notorious pictures in Mexico to live down, hence the extreme dieting and major plastic surgery she has had done recently."
"Wasn't she just recently bashing her brother for posting naked pictures on the internet and saying 'he has sisters'? And here she is doing it herself, she is such a hypocrite!" another wrote.
