Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their first child at Hollywood’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday. The baby girl, whose name has not been released, arrived five weeks early, much to the delight of West, Kim Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashian clan.
Kim Kardashian, who has long been a media fixture, shockingly did not have the camera crew for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” in the delivery room (probably at the request of Kanye West) as her sister Kourtney did for both of her children, but even more surprising is that the Kardashian family didn’t release any sort of statement for over 24 hours. The family broke their silence on Sunday when they tweeted congratulations to the happy couple.
Another happy occurrence is that Kanye West was actually in the delivery room when Kim Kardashian gave birth. It had long been reported that there was trouble in paradise between the superstar couple, with some reports claiming that Kanye had no intention of being in the delivery room when the time came. Late Friday night, Kanye West skipped out of his new album’s listening party after learning that Kim Kardashian was not feeling well and rushed to be by her side.
Kim Kardashian has had a rough pregnancy, with multiple medical scares and vicious gossip and threats from the tabloids. Luckily, Kanye West happened to be in Los Angeles, instead of Paris where he had been living for most of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. Kim Kardashian went into labor a few hours later and checked into a private birthing-suite. A hospital staff member tipped off the media that Kim Kardashian had checked into the hospital and again released information that the star had given birth. Even though baby Kimye was over a month early, she and Kim Kardashian are both doing well.
There has been no word as to when or where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby will make its debut.
