Kim Kardashian shared a sexy throwback image to Instagram late on Wednesday evening.
The photo was taken in Mexico where the 36-year-old beauty was modeling a nude monokini and her hair was worn up – she captioned the image ‘casual in Cabo.’ It is not known when the photo was taken but is likely several years old.
This comes after her bombshell interview with The Hollywood Reporter where she confirmed she and Kanye West are trying for a third child. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also said that she almost didn’t marry Kris Humphries in 2011 because she had ‘anxiety’ and ‘cold feet.’
In the new image of Kim she is holding onto a rock on the beach as the water rolls in.
Her hair is slicked back and worn in a high ponytail, a look she favored in the early years of her fame.
The star’s monokini is a bit old school with a large ring on her hip and gathering in the chest area. The TV icon has on no jewelry and her makeup is flattering earth tones.
All of them: The entire family graced the cover of the Hollywood weekly
When talking about a third child she said: ‘I hope so. There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything. We’re definitely trying. We are hoping so.’
The pinup did not discuss whether they are working with a surrogate or not. In July a source told UsWeekly that Kim’s surrogate is three months pregnant. And in June a source told People magazine that the couple were working with a surrogate.
Kim has talked about using a surrogate on her series Keeping Up With The Kardashians after doctors told her it was not safe to get pregnant again because she suffered from placenta accreta with her previous pregnancy.
‘I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,’ Kim told her mother Kris Jenner on the show.

She also said: ‘I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe. And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.’
Placenta accreta is when placenta grows into the wall of the womb and prevents it from easily detaching at the time of birth.
‘My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!!’ she revealed about welcoming North.
Not a happy day: Kardashian has told the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter that she had anxiety before marrying Kris Humphries in 2011
‘My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.’
Also in the Hollywood Reporter interview Kim admitted that she almost didn’t marry Kris Humphries.
Kim wed basketball star Humphries in August 2011.
The $6m wedding was filmed by E! for a KUWTK special, bringing in $10 million in ad revenue, according to the site.
It was a success financially but not in real life. And Kim says she knew it was not going to work before she even said ‘I do.’
The KKW Beauty mogul told the site: ‘There was all this attention on the wedding, and I thought maybe it was just the pressure of the show giving me this anxiety.
‘My friends told me I just had cold feet, but even the producers said, “You don’t seem happy. You don’t have to go through with this.”‘
Kim added: ‘The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off camera, and was like, “This isn’t it for you. Why don’t you go away and I’ll handle it?”
‘I felt like, if I pulled out now, everyone’s going to think I just did it for the show. Then afterwards, people were saying, “You have to stay married for a year,” but I physically couldn’t do it.
‘When I made the decision [to divorce], everyone said it was made up for the show. Everyone really wanted to take me down.’
Ryan Seacrest, a producer and co-creator on the show, said: ‘I remember when Kim called me after the wedding. It was just a few days after, and she just didn’t feel like it was right. She was very candid and open.
Kim interjected: ‘Think about this realistically: If it was for the show don’t you think we would have found someone that signed off?
‘Someone OK with getting married and getting divorced two months later? If it’s for a show don’t you think you’d want as little legal trouble as possible?
‘This was real emotions, real feelings. People f*** up.’
Painful: The Selfish author also said she didn’t like filming when pregnant. ‘I looked like such a cow and I can’t stand to see those episodes. I would say, “Try to film me more from chest up, so it looks better,” but I look like a blob.’ Seen in 2013
The Vogue cover girl then talked about her current husband Kanye West, with whom she has two children Saint and North.
The rapper, 40, has never agreed to star on the show, but he is seen now and then.
She said: ‘Kanye was like, “I’m not a part of the show. That’s not what I do. I have my own career and life.”
‘He’ll really surprise you though. He’ll be like, “I’m not filming” and then randomly show up. But I will get [the footage] and show him.
‘He knew I would love to have my engagement on camera so he filmed it and he said, “The look might be a little different because I need these type of cameras,” and got music clearance.
Not HER idea: Another revelation in the interview was how Khloe was not the one to push for a spinoff with Lamar Odom, who she divorced in 2016
Shocker: ‘I never wanted to do Khloe & Lamar,’ she said. The show ran for two seasons in 2011 and 2012. ‘My ex-husband did. He sold it to E!, and I let it happen because I wanted him to be happy. I was the one who canceled it. It was way too much’
‘But I won’t really ever talk about something that’s going on with Kanye. I’ll talk about how I feel. He knows that I’m really protective of him.’
And his need for privacy prevented her from having their Italian nuptials filmed.
Ryan said: ‘We had no intention of showing our wedding on the show. It was shot with only iPhones and my assistant on a handycam.
‘She was literally standing on top of a castle and freezing, because we knew we wanted to capture this gorgeous walk from up above.
‘People were yelling at her like, “You can’t film up there!” But then we loved the footage so much, [we used some of it on the show].’
Kim also said the hardest thing to film was ‘probably Caitlyn’s transition and just seeing my mom and Khloe having such a hard time.’
Hard to deal with: It was also revealed the family had a hard time filming episodes that had to do with Caitlyn’s transition; seen in 2016
She added: ‘We never really edited content before, but we did edit a bit of Khloe’s reaction just because she was so upset.’
The Selfish author also said she didn’t like filming when pregnant. ‘I looked like such a cow and I can’t stand to see those episodes. I would say, “Try to film me more from chest up, so it looks better,” but I look like a blob.’
Another revelation in the interview was how Khloe was not the one to push for a spinoff with Lamar Odom, who she divorced in 2016 after he almost died from an overdose while visiting prostitutes in a brothel in Nevada in 2015..
‘I never wanted to do Khloe & Lamar,’ she said.
The show ran for two seasons in 2011 and 2012.
‘My ex-husband did. He sold it to E!, and I let it happen because I wanted him to be happy. I was the one who canceled it. It was way too much.’
Kourt’s pain: Kourtney also weighed in. She said the hardest episode to film was her break-up with Scott Disick. ‘I had a lot of anxiety about it, and finally said let’s just get this over with.’ Seen in 2015
Kourtney also weighed in.
She said the hardest episode to film was her break-up with Scott Disick.
‘I had a lot of anxiety about it, and finally said let’s just get this over with. I sat down and started crying. You go through something, and then you move past it.
‘Then you do your interview, and get all riled up again. And then you see the episode, and start seeing all these comments [on social media].’

The family also went into why the show is so popular and which shows no signs of slowing: On September 24, a 90-minute special will celebrate the series’ 10th anniversary. E! agreed to a reported $80 million deal to keep the family through season 14.
Ryan said: ‘I remember Kris saying, “In order for this to work, yes, there’s a glitz and glamour, but there’s got to be honesty and vulnerability. We need to make a pact that the show won’t just be pretty pictures.
‘As time goes by, you see some of the most vulnerable moments. There was a deliberate intent to be vulnerable and capture that from the beginning.’
‘I sat everyone down and said, “If we’re going to do this, we have to be all in. We have to really be who we are,” Kris said.

Kendall added: ‘I was like, “Whatever. What am I having for lunch tomorrow?” She didn’t make it seem like it was going to last this long.’
And Kim said. ‘I don’t think any of us thought it would.’
Kris added that she got ‘resistance’ from Kourtney. ‘She was sort of skeptical,’ said the momager.
Kourtney: ‘I remember in season one being like, “I have to go the bathroom,” and I’d cry in there as quietly as I could because I was still mic’d. I never want to cry in front of cameras.’
Khloe added: ‘I don’t think we knew what we were even saying yes to. Everything was just super-fast. Kim and my mom were steering the ship. We were just like, “Tell us where to be and we’ll be there.”‘
‘When we would travel, I remember people calling mine, Kourtney, and Khloe’s names and we thought they knew us from high school or something. We just didn’t get it.
‘Then they started chasing us down at the airport. That was the first time that we were like, “Oh my God,”‘ said Kim.

Kendall then added: ‘Kylie and I did a magazine signing for Seventeen, and it was at some store at The Grove and we had a crazy line around the corner.
‘The store owner came up to us and said, “Justin Bieber was here a week ago and didn’t get this response.”‘
The Fendi model then said: ‘The beauty of having older sisters is you learn so many lessons from them.
‘I’ve seen how their relationships have played out on TV so I learned that lesson. I I feel like it’s just better to keep it more private.’
