Oh, boy! Kanye West is beyond thrilled over the news that he and his wife, Kim Kardashian, are welcoming a son in December. The main reason? So the West name can be carried on for generations to come!
Kanye West, 38, wants his iconic status to survive the test of time, with a little help from his unborn son! Kim Kardashian, 34, broke the news that the couple were expecting a baby boy in a sweet June 21 Father’s Day message on social media — and it was the best gift Yeezy could have ever received! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the rapper is oh-so-excited to be buying blue — so that the West legend can live on, obvi. Read on for all the details!
“Kanye is saying all the right things but behind the scenes he’s incredibly overjoyed he’s having a boy,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He obviously loves North [West] but he absolutely wanted a boy this time around to carry on his family name.”
“Kim loves girls but she’s happy to have one of each sex,” our Kimye insider adds. So happy for Mr. West. We know how delighted he must be to be having his own little mini-me — so he can continue to bless the world with the spirit of Yeezus!
Kim first revealed to the world that she and Kanye are expecting a little boy later this year with a big announcement via social media dedicated to Ye on Dad’s Day. She wrote on Instagram and Twitter: “Precious moments like this when we were traveling on tour with you are what I live for. You’re such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!” So. Much. Cuteness!
Even though Kim and Kanye are over the moon about becoming second time parents, they are planning on making this baby their last — as HollywoodLife.com has previously reported.
“The excitement is overwhelming, whether it was a boy or a girl it is a big deal,” a second insider explained to us. “But now they will have one of each and most likely will stop having any more children, they got what they always wanted.”
It makes sense that the busy parents don’t plan on expanding their brood after Nori’s little brother arrives. With such busy schedules — and the fact that they will now have a girl and a boy — there’s no need to add anymore to the chaos, right?!
