Kourtney Kardashian has said she was offended by fans thinking she was pregnant after she posted a sizzling lingerie snap of herself.

The 40 year old sent fans wild after sharing the near-naked photo of herself dressed in nothing but nude underwear underneath a flowing orange dress shirt that unbuttoned over her stomach.

Many of her 89.7 million Instagram followers immediately questioned whether this was her way of announcing a fourth pregnancy.

At the time, the mum-of-three, who shares Mason, 10, Penelope, seven, and Reign, five, with her 36 year old ex Scott Disick, cryptically replied: ''put the blessing out there though''. [sic]

Now, in an Instagram Live, Kourtney has addressed the rumours, explaining that she was actually offended by some of the comments she received on the photo.

The reality star said: "I posted this photo the other day, so many of the comments were like, 'are you pregnant?' and I could've taken that offensively and really been like, 'oh my gosh, do I look pregnant?'

"But I knew I didn't look pregnant. I've been pregnant three times, I know what my body looks like when I'm pregnant," she explained.

Kourtney went on to say that actually she loves her body and loved being pregnant, so she took the high road by answering the comments.

She said: "To me it's very feminine to have curves and I embrace my body. And I did take it offensively and instead I said, 'let's put the good blessings out there'."

Admitting that she read quite of few of the messages she received on that one photo, she continued: "There was this one comment that I really liked and it said: 'I almost thought you were pregnant because your body looks extra feminine and curvy and glowing.'

"It was so positive. There's so much criticism on everybody in how we do things today. People feel they can just comment – not only celebrities, but anyone – on what you're doing."

Speaking about a time before she became famous for being on the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a series she recently left after having a violent fight with her 39 year old sister Kim Kardashian, Kourtney said that she felt confident.

She explained: "We were authentic to who we were, we weren't trying to prove anything.

"It's funny because I recently looked back at my first Instagram, when Instagram first started. No one was overthinking the captions, it was so freeing to look at. It was more fun, it was like 'remember when we could just be who we are?'

"I'm not speaking as someone from a famous family. I'm speaking as a person in the world."

"It's important to be yourself," she added.
