Kim Kardashian West struggled with confidence issues as a youngster

2015-04-26 10:00

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West wishes she was more confident.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star famously tried to "break the internet" by posing nude for a cover shoot for Paper magazine but has admitted she wishes she had less confidence issues as a young girl.

When asked what advice she would give to her younger self, she told The Today Show: "I wish I had more confidence when I was younger.

"I wasn't really insecure, I was just really shy."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old television personality - who is married to rapper Kanye West, 37 - previously admitted her confidence grew once she gave birth to their child, 22-month-old North.

She said: "My level of confidence has just changed so much I think since I've had the baby. I put a lot of work into (my body) and there's a sense of accomplishment you have when you lose weight like that.

"I just felt really good about myself. And it was a proud moment for me."

And Kim, who is releasing a book full of her selfies next month, also admitted she loves letting people see her life through the candid snaps.

She said: "I love to give the viewers a sneak peek into what I'm really doing.

"If I'm getting my make-up done or my shoe breaks or whatever is really going on, I typically like to document that.

"I think people enjoy that and seeing that it's candid instead of it being perfect."
