Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed a baby girl into the world, five weeks ahead of Kim’s due date. Congrats guys! Kim was reportedly admitted to a birthing suite in uber-posh LA hospital Cedars-Senai Medical Center on Friday after her contractions started and we hear she gave birth on Saturday morning at 1.30am.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was apparently all set to give birth via caesarean section on July 11th (same due date as Kate Middleton, fact fans) but when the contractions started, she decided to have a natural birth, according to sources who spoke to US site TMZ. Kanye West was scheduled to be at a listening party for his new album in LA on Friday but didn’t appear, and reports suggest he rushed to the hospital and was by Kim’s side during the birth (we hope he was doing lots of hand holding and making lots of encouraging comments). Kim’s mum, Kris Jenner, was apparently also at the birth.
Sources have told E! News that baby Kimye is like a mini version of Kim Kardashian, with lots of dark brown hair (ahh she sounds so cute!) and we hear that both Kim and her newborn are healthy and doing well.
The couple have yet to announce the name of their daughter, with lots of speculation on what they might call her. Will it be a name beginning with K, to fit in with Kim, Kanye and Kim’s family mum Kris and sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall? Imagine if they shocked us all by calling her a name beginning with a W. Wendy West has a ring to it…
