Baby Kimye is finally here! Kim gave birth to a healthy baby girl on June 15 in Los Angeles. Congrats to the new parents!
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Baby Born
Kim welcomed her baby in the early morning of June 15, about a month earlier than expected, according to TMZ. Sources tell the site that mom and the baby are in good health.
Their daughter was born at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles at around 1:30 in the morning. Both our and TMZ’s sources report that Kim had a natural birth.
Our sources tell HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that boyfriend Kanye West was there for the entire thing — in the delivery room right by Kim’s side — even though he’s freaked out by hospitals and surgery in general. Kanye cancelled his appearance at his own record release party the night before, June 14, when Kim told him she was feeling “a little off,” sources say.
Since the birth came early, and because of the delicacy of delivering a baby, E! cameras were not on hand to film the birth. Pictures and video were taken with phones and a camcorder though, a source reveals.
Wrong Kim Kardashian Due Date Deliberately Revealed
Although Kim’s birth seems to be very premature, a source close to Kim revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she wanted a few extra weeks of privacy after her baby arrived — so she deliberately told the press that her bundle of joy was due in July. The source explained, “She did lie on the Today show because she wants privacy when she gives birth. She’s due at the beginning of June.”
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Baby Birth — Are They Living In Kris Jenner’s House?
Even though the proud parents have been together for more than a year, they spent the majority of their pregnancy long-distance. Kanye was in Paris recording his album, while Kim stayed mostly in Los Angeles near her family.
But now that the baby has arrived, the couple will be living in Kris Jenner’s house in Los Angeles while they wait for their $9 million Bel Air mansion to be completed.
Her mom Kris Jenner revealed the shocking news in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, which mentioned the news in passing:
There’ll be even more attention if Kim gets married to Kanye, who’s moving into Kris’ house with her.
However, Kim was quoted in the piece saying, “We have a hotel that she doesn’t know about yet.” Even if Kris has a packed house, it will be so nice for Kim and Kanye to have all that extra help from an experienced mom of six kids!
A Whirlwind Pregnancy for Kim Kardashian
Although she’s surely so excited to be a mom now, Kim’s pregnancy wasn’t exactly stress free. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star spent time in a legal battle with now ex-husband Kris Humphries. Despite only being married for 72 days, the former spouses spent over a year and a half in court battles before reaching a divorce settlement on April 19.
Kim has also said that her pregnancy has been painful, and she suffered several health complications — including a possible bout of apendicitis — which were documented on her E! reality show.
Kim Kardashian’s Weight Often the Subject of Harsh Criticism
Throughout her pregnancy, the 5-foot-2 reality star was deeply criticized for her weight gain and maternity fashion. But Kim fired back at the haters and her sister Khloe praised her response to the mean, hurtful comments.
I need you to know how truly magnificent you are! You may be one of the most beautiful women I have ever laid my eyes on. Your beauty runs deeper then just what some may see. I know the beauty of your soul. Please never let anyone take that from you! It breaks my heart when I see you sad because of the vicious attacks on your growing, pregnant body. Bible kimmie you are perfect the way you are! This is your life! Your body! Your baby! I wish you could see how you have this pregnant glow and you sparkle everyday! Your belly is fantastic! Kim! You are growing a miracle inside of you! I love you! And I will do anything in my power to protect you!
All the criticisms aside, none of that matters now that the new baby is here. Both Kim and Kanye have so much to celebrate and they have a great support system to help them with whatever they need. Congrats to the new parents!
What kind of parents do you think Kim and Kanye will be, HollyMoms?
