Congrats go out to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West!
The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Saturday June 15. Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
Both parents have been quiet following news of the birth; neither have tweeted since heading to Cedars-Sinai medical centre in Los Angeles.
It was Kim’s sister Khloé, a fellow reality TV star, who finally broke the silence on Sunday, thanking fans for their support: “I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family,” she wrote. “More info will come when the time is right!”
“Mommy/baby are healthy & resting. We appreciate all of the love.”
Kris Jenner, the Kardashians matriarch, 57, asked about her daughter and newly minted granddaughter, Jenner remained mostly mum on details, except to say that both mom and baby were fine.
“It all happened so fast,” she told reporters on the red carpet. “They’re doing well.”
Jenner added, in a special tweet to Kim’s beau: “HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest!!!!!”
According to the sources close to the couple, BF Kanye West was there for the entire thing – in the delivery room by Kim’s side. The TMZ reports that Kanye cancelled his appearance at his own record release party last night when Kim told him she was feeling “a little off.”
This is the first child for the 32-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and her boyfriend Kanye West, who announced just a couple of weeks ago that they were expecting a baby girl.
Kardashian revealed the sex of her baby on the season premiere of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” on June 2.
“Who doesn’t want a girl?” Kardashian said. “They’re the best and I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl.”
The duo has had quite the romance since going public with their relationship (and locking lips) at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
Although West has yet to propose to Kardashian, the duo is delighted to be first-time parents. And we’re sure Kardashian, who admitted countless times that pregnancy was “painful,” is eager to get back in pre-baby shape.
“Ever since I felt the baby kick, it’s such an amazing feeling, and it’s really allowed me to embrace it. Once you feel this movement inside, it’s just a whole different experience, so I love it now,” she told reporters at the E! Upfront in April.
“It was tough at the beginning, but I’m past all that and I love it now.”
West could be forgiven for grousing about his baby’s bad timing: the rapper’s new album, Yeezus, is out on Tuesday, and the baby reportedly wasn’t due for several weeks.
But one day after Father’s Day, let’s imagine that the 36-year-old is turning over a new leaf. Maybe he will borrow a page from Jay-Z, adding a sentimental bonus track to Yeezus’s 40-minute snarl.
Meanwhile, everyone is guessing about the new baby’s name. Bookies have stopped taking bets on what Kardashian and West will call her: the best odds were for Krystal, Donda, Kara and South, reports the Guardian.
