The reality star wrote a post on her blog encouraging girls not to idolise pregnant teens they see on TV.

"It seems that shows like Teen Mum are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls," she wrote.

"The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolise!"

The 30-year-old explained that she would never have considered having a baby at the age of 16.

"That thought wouldn't even have entered my head. Having a baby is one of the biggest and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I'm not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn't be seen as the trendy thing to do," she continued.

Teen Mum star Amber Portwood, whose pregnancy was documented on the show, responded to Kardashian's post.

"There's actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down," Portwood told E! Online.

She added of Kardashian: "She made a sex tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mum?

"If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us. It doesn't glamorise anything! It shows the heartache we've all gone through."
