Kim’s been in hiding since she gave birth to North West on June 15. According to a new report, there’s a very specific reason why the reality star’s keeping herself and her baby holed up indoors.
Kim Kardashian is famous for being a public persona, so it seems a bit strange that she’s been in hiding since the birth of her baby North West on June 15. Sadly, Kim will remain in hiding through at least July 25, according to the new report.
Kim Kardashian Staying Home With Baby North West — Armenian Tradition
Kim, 32, is reportedly following the Armenian tradition of staying at home for 40 days after the birth of a newborn, X17 Online claims.
During those first 40 days, only relatives are allowed to see the baby. According to the same report, Kourtney Kardashian allegedly followed this tradition with her children, Mason and Penelope.
Not only is the practice done for religious purposes, but it’s allegedly also known to have health benefits for the baby. If the baby — in this case, Nori — stays indoors for 40 days, she’s not exposed to bacteria outside of the house.
Kim Kardashian Is Shedding Weight Before Her Return To The Spotlight
While Kim still has 20 days to go, she’s definitely using this time to her advantage. She’s been bonding with North and shedding baby weight in the process, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
“Kim sleeps whenever North sleeps. She’s tired of course, but also just completely in love,” the source adds. (So cute! We can’t wait to meet her.)
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kim come outdoors and reveal North West?
