Kim Kardashian Gives Birth to Baby Girl!
Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who've welcomed their first child! Kim delivered a baby girl in an LA hospital on 15 June, and Kanye was right by her side during the birth, as was her mumager Kris Jenner.
Kim was due to give birth to the baby in July, but the tot arrived five weeks early. The reality star had planned a C-section early but decided to go to the hospital early after suffering from an infection. Ultimately, it was a natural birth and both mum and little one are doing well, it was confirmed by E! News. As the baby arrived early, it's been placed in an incubator for now.
A source told UsMagazine.com: "Kim got sick last night and had the baby early. They're all doing great and amazing!"
Wondering what Kimye junior looks like? Well, a source also told E! News that the baby weighed in at under five pounds and had dark hair, just like Kim.
The baby's name hasn't been revealed yet but it's quite likely that it'll start with a K. We can't wait to find out what it is!
Leading up to the big day, Kanye actually skipped a listening party for his new album to join his baby mama for the birth. He reportedly disappointed some of his biggest fans by not showing up to the bash at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on Friday night (15 June), where he was scheduled to preview tracks from his new album Yeezus, which leaked online before its official release next Tuesday (18 June).
Sources told gossip website RadarOnline.com that a rumour quickly swept through the event that the reason Kanye was a no-show was because his reality TV star girlfriend was going into labour. Several of Kim's close friends including Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban both attended the party.
Kanye recently revealed that he plans to do everything in his power to protect the privacy of his daughter.
Asked for his thoughts on parenthood, he said: "One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child's mother ... [But I haven't] fully developed those thoughts yet. I don't have a kid yet. Well, I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby."
