those who have somehow been oblivious to the ongoing coverage of the
Kardashian offspring, West, 36, announced Kardashian's pregnancy in
December, during a concert in Atlantic City. "Stop the music and make
noise for my baby mama ... now you having my baby!" he shouted to the
audience, which included Kardashian.
Kardashian, 32, has been a near-daily presence on blogs and websites,
and in magazines, which have chronicled her unusual choices in maternity
wear (consisting mostly of black and white pieces), her growing girth,
and how much time she's been spending with West (not much). Their most
high-profile public outing: May's Met Ball in New York City.
told USA TODAY in March that she understood the interest in her. "I get
that my life is very public and I live my life on a reality show. It
gets a little tedious sometimes when I'm asked a bunch of questions that
are so silly," she said.
Give this to Kardashian: she doesn't hold much back when she's on air. On the season premiere of her reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians,
she revealed that she's having a girl. "I'm so excited we're having a
girl. Who doesn't want a girl? They are the best, and I know that's
really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl," she said.
course, whether the child will be on the show remains up for debate. "I
think, as of now, that's just, you know, a decision that Kanye and I
made. ... From the start, we're just gonna try to keep it as private as
possible," she told Jimmy Kimmel in January.
In reality, her pregnancy has been chronicled on the show. On the season finale of Kourtney and Kim take Miami,
she broke the news that she was having a baby. She had an opulent baby
shower, with mom Kris Kenner, sisters Kourtney and Khloe, and West in
attendance, which was filmed for the show.
West, whose public demeanor is surly at the best of times, was focused on his sixth album, Yeezus, which he was busy recording in Paris while Kardashian was pregnant and filming. The album, out June 18, already leaked online.
Kardashian is, finally, a single lady. After a long battle that
outlasted her 72-day marriage, Kardashian finally divorced basketball
player Kris Humphries in April.
"I've said some
things that I completely am, like, a hypocrite about now," Kardashian
told Ryan Seacrest, one of the producers of her show, in an E! news
special. "I would say things about Kourtney like, 'You cannot have a
baby without being married!' "
