Kim, 38, spilled the beans in an interview with C Magazine. She said the preeclampsia she suffered from while pregnant with 5-year-old daughter North  caused her to bloat. “It contributed to not only the weight, but also the swelling that everyone would make fun of, not understanding that I had this condition," she explained.

She said it “changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken.” “Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. After I had the baby, I was like, ‘These are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn’t control,’” Kim added.

She explained she started posing without showing her teeth because, "It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.”

She also revealed a perk to her aversion to smiling is avoiding wrinkles. A fan asked her during her makeup master class on Saturday, February 9, how she maintains her smooth skin and the beauty mogul responded, "Don't smile."
