Whether or not pregnant Kim Kardashian is really freaking out about the amount of weight she’s gaining, she must certainly be thinking about the challenge of getting her famous figure back after her baby is born.

 

One suggestion came from a previously-unheard-of Kardashian relation, Joan (sister-in-law to Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian), who suggested that Kim should just get a tummy tuck after giving birth.

 

“Other than her belly, which is rather flat, every other part of her body has ballooned,” Joan apparently said. “And this is Kim holding to a strict diet. Imagine if she let herself go?”

 

This led Joan to her brilliant solution: “She can have a tummy tuck, which will take care of most of her weight fears.”

 

We’re guessing Kim wouldn’t be the first celeb to go under the knife for some help getting back into pre-baby shape. But in our opinion, that just ain’t gonna happen with Kim, and that has everything to do with boyfriend Kanye West.

 

Kanye was incredibly close to his mother, Donda. Sadly, she was only 58 years old when she passed away in November of 2007, following complications from that exact cosmetic surgery procedure: She'd had a tummy tuck and a breast reduction.

 

After this tragedy, we can’t imagine Kanye would be cool with the mother of his newborn child going through any kind of elective procedure, and we can’t imagine Kim would want to put him through that.

 

Lucky for Kim, she has a great weight loss example to follow once her baby arrives. Big sister Kourtney Kardashian has lost baby weight not once, but twice!

 

She showed off her enviable post-baby body soon after son Mason was born, and six months after she gave birth to daughter Penelope, she showed off her bangin’ body in a bikini cover shoot!

 Kim has already called Kourtney an inspiration in this area, so we’re confident she’s going to get back in shape the old-fashioned way: With expensive personal trainers and nutritionists.
