Kim Kardashian may not be thrilled about the pregnancy weight she’s gained over the past several months, but there’s something else she’s likely to gain in the process: a fat paycheck!
According to a new report by The New York Post, the pregnant reality star, 32— who’s packed on a reported 75 pounds in the last six months— is now purposely gaining as much weight as possible to try and secure a lucrative weight-loss deal after she has her baby in July.
Now, In Touch can exclusively confirm that Kim’s being coaxed by her “momager,” Kris Jenner, 57, to cash in on her baby weight.

“She would get a percentage of any deal, so she’s pushing Kim hard to start signing contracts — baby shower photos, baby-bump pics, weight loss,” a friend of Kim’s tells In Touch.
And an industry insider, who’s brokered numerous celebrity weight loss deals, says Kim’s would be a “multimillion dollar deal” because of her international recognition.
Until then, Kim continues to publicly indulge in her cravings: chicken and waffles, cake, In-N-Out burgers, cheese fries, enchiladas and more.
