There are certain things you can expect of your husband after you give birth. And then there's the request ... wait, scratch that ... demand Kim Zolciak had of husband Kroy Biermann right after giving birth to their twins. Kim decided she was going to suck down a placenta smoothie, and so was her husband.
Zolciak gave birth way back in December, but her maternity ward antics just popped up on the premiere of Don't Be Tardy, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's new reality show. Now, a woman who just spent nine months toting two babies around in her tummy deserves a few diva moments, but this was a little over-the-top.
Kim didn't just ask Kroy if he'd try some placenta smoothie. She bullied him into it:
Don’t f**ckin’ back out on me, I just pushed out two of your children and one of them breach and my p*ssy’s tore to hell because of it. You are drinking the f**king smoothie Kroy.
Jeez Louise, lady!
Should a husband support your desire to eat your placenta? Sure. There may be some health benefits, and besides, it's your body ... your choice.
A new dad should also be shouldering at least half -- if not more -- of the parenting duties while a new mom is in recovery. Birth does a number on the body, and moms don't just want help; they need it.
That said, a lot of women make the mistake of treating their partners like crap after delivery, using the same excuse Kim did to make Kroy drink placenta -- essentially, I hurt, and it's all his fault. But ladies, it behooves you to remember it takes two to tango. You got you pregnant too.

And supposedly you're in this position because you love each other. So how about treating him like a human being and the type of guy you'd want fathering your kids? He shouldn't be forced to do things he just isn't comfortable with doing, especially something as personal as ingesting a placenta!
What kind of demands did you have for your partner after birth?
