Kim Kardashian confirmed, on Father’s Day, that she and husband Kanye West were expecting a baby boy.
This unborn baby will be the younger brother of North West, 2. Kim has already shot down claims that she will be naming the boy “South West”, insisting the idea was the “stupidest thing ever.”
Kim was rather… late confirming the sex of the baby. Back on June 10, Us Weekly confirmed that the couple were expecting their first son. A source said: “Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir. He’s overjoyed!” The source added, “Kim always wanted two kids. A girl and a boy.”
Kim lashed out on Twitter, insisting that fans shouldn’t believe anything that didn’t come from her directly. She claimed she told no one whether she was expecting a boy or a girl (which would make a leak impossible).
This weekend, however, she basically confirmed that the tabloids were right… because she is pregnant with a boy.
She posted a photo of Kanye and North on Instagram with the caption: “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!” With a mom, dad, son and daughter emoji.
It’s a few days later and now Us Weekly says that Kim and Kanye were guaranteed to have a son, through IVF, because Kim only had male embryos implanted.
“[Kim] only had boy embryos implanted,” explained a source. “Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family. Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir.”
The source added, “Kim would have happily taken a healthy baby, but being able to choose the sex is the cherry on top!”
