While most moms would tell their daughters to cover up and put on some more clothing, Kris Jenner has no problem with Kim Kardashian flaunting her post-baby body — this is the woman who urged Kim to pose for Playboy, after all.

When asked by E! News about Kim’s now-famous swimsuit selfie — the one Kim has dubbed her “big middle finger to the world” — Kris says that she couldn’t be prouder of her daughter’s Instagram photo.

“I thought that was a beautiful shot,” Kris said. “And I think that what she’s saying is she got so much flack for gaining weight while she was pregnant — when I was pregnant I gained a lot of weight — and it hurts when somebody says something ugly to you when you’re carrying a baby and that’s just how your body does it.”

Kim recently spoke out about the pain she endured while pregnant with baby North West.

“It really hurt my soul,” she said regarding the criticism surrounding her weight gain. “I was gaining weight because I was pregnant and it was really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things.”

In order to show the world that she had lost the baby weight, Kim posted the revealing selfie on Instagram.

“For her to have done that and lost all that weight, she looks like my baby,” Kris said regarding the photo. “She lost a lot of weight and she’s looking good so I’m proud of her.”
