Kim Kardashian West Admits to Being Jealous of New Mom Chrissy Teigen’s Post-Baby Body: ‘I’m Like, “How Do You Do It?” ‘

06/16/2016 at 12:15 PM ET

She’s one of the most famous faces in the world, but even Kim Kardashian West succumbs to self-comparisons now and then.

The reality star, who gained 60 pounds while pregnant with son Saint, now 6 months old, tells PEOPLE exclusively that she struggled seeing other women bounce back quickly after pregnancy.

“I see my friends like Chrissy [Teigen], who I love to death, and I’m like, ‘Chrissy, I want to kill you. How do you do it?’ ” jokes Kardashian West of the Lip Sync Battle host, who stepped out in tiny short shorts just weeks after giving birth to daughter Luna in April.

“She’s a model,” Kardashian West, 35, who is also mom to 3-year-old North, adds. “I think tall skinny models have it easy!”

The entrepreneur and social media queen isn’t doing too badly herself. She’s lost all of her baby weight, and is on track to have “the body of my dreams,” she says. “I’ve worked my ass off to get here!”

generally if you were thin b4 baby, you will go back to being thin…some people are lucky

Charlotte on

Because Chrissy is prettier than you, Kim.

You worked your ass off? I beg to differ. It is still enormous, like your ego.

Amber on

Well that was nasty Charlotte. Why does it seem like the cool thing to do is bash Kim? It’s not necessary at all. She may not be your favorite, but why does she take people to such a level of ugly? My goodness.

Debra on

She didn’t eat like a pigh and look like a cow. Do you not watch your show? All you did was stuff your face.

Kim, you are 30+ years old. Isn’t it time you dropped “like” from your conversations. Valley Girl went away many years ago. Grow up and talk like an adult.

Johnbee on

Kim may think she’s worked her ass off, but if she checks in a mirror she’ll see she’s got a long way to go. She does have great boobs tho.

Kristen on

No one needs to gain 60 pounds during pregnancy, and doing so will obviously make it take longer to get back to where you started. Chrissy isn’t perfect by any means but at least she followed standard healthy pregnancy guidelines.

She breast feeds her daughter . Breast feeding makes you burn so many calories you become very skinny . It’s that simple .
