Kim Zolciak has done quite a bit over the years to shock and awe viewers of the Real Housewives of Atlanta both on and off the TV screen, but the above picture will arguably be her most shocking act to date.
Kim, 32, graced this week’s cover of Life & Style magazine confirming that she is pregnant and 3 months along. However, TMZ is reporting today that the above photo of Kim was taken just 3 weeks ago on Nov. 7 outside the Georgia Dome.
She reportedly took a smoke break while watching her NFL boyfriend and father of her unborn child Kroy Biermann, 25, play football.
And unfortunately for Kim, she cannot use the argument that she didn’t know she was pregnant when she decided to smoke 3 weeks ago as she confirmed to Life & Style magazine that she didn’t want to announce her pregnancy in October because she wasn’t through her first trimester.
According to WebMD, below are just some of the effects smoking while pregnant has on the baby –
- Lower the amount of oxygen available to you and your growing baby.
- Increase the chances of miscarriage and stillbirth.
- Increase the risk that your baby is born prematurely and/or born with low birth weight.
- Increase your baby’s risk of developing respiratory (lung) problems
Smoking while pregnant can also have lifelong effects on a baby’s brain. Children of pregnant smokers are especially likely to have learning disorders, behavioral problems, and relatively low IQs.
And oh yeah, Kim’s used to be a nurse. She even stated on the most recent episode of the Atlanta Housewives that she worked in labor and delivery. Sad.
