The 35-year-old "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star said she is now comfortable posing sans clothes, but was hesitant initially, reported Femalefirst.

"Times have changed since my first Playboy shoot. This sounds so bad but I feel like my mom talked me into doing my first Playboy shoot, I really did. Now I've got more comfortable," Kim said.

She also opened up about her workout regime and weight loss post the birth of her kids North and Saint.

"I think especially if you're a mom. The power you feel when it takes you months (to lose the weight) and I wake up every single day at 5:55 and work out for an hour before the kids gets up.

"It's weird how your body changes for different babies. I wanna get to Kim 2010/11. I'm gonna focus and get there! I felt sexy again and I felt empowered," she said.
