Kim Kardashian talks pregnancy weight rumors: They're '60 pounds off'

Since Kim Kardashian's baby bump first began to show, the reality TV starlet has been getting a lot of flack for two things: her maternity style choices (or lack thereof) and her weight.

But Kardashian, 32, seems to be letting the criticism slide right off her back.

"There are maybe two or three covers just this week that say I am 200 pounds. I'm like, ‘You are 60 pounds off here,'" she told "Extra"'s Maria Menounos during a press junket for Tyler Perry's new film, "Temptation," in which she (ironically) plays a marriage counselor.

"I haven't even gained half that. It wouldn't even bother me if I gained all that weight. And I have the biggest sweet tooth and I love junk food. Being pregnant I don't like any of it,” Kardashian said.

This is a big change since the beginning of her pregnancy, when Kardashian was spotted hitting the gym religiously to combat baby weight. But after a miscarriage scare that sent her to the hospital earlier this month, Kanye West's baby mama is battling the bulge with a different approach: a healthy diet.

"All I eat is carrots and celery and ranch," she said.

As for the other Kimye baby rumor circulating as of late -- that the couple plans to name their child "North," as in, first name North, last name West -- Kardashian neither confirmed nor denied, but she did reveal a name that begins with a "K" is not out of the question.

 “I think it would be really cute cause Kanye and I are both Ks… but half the names on our list aren't Ks… we still have time, whatever feels right… Kanye being the father, he wants something that’s unique,” she said.

What do you think? Should Kimye give their baby a "K" name? Tell us in the poll below.
