Kim Kardashian West is hoping for a baby boy

2015-06-08 19:00

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West would like to have a son.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who recently confirmed she is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, is reportedly planning to find out the unborn baby's sex later this month and is hoping to decorate a nursery in shades of blue.

A source close to the 34-year-old beauty said: "They want a son."

Meanwhile, Kim, who felt bullied about her weight gain while she was expecting 23-month-old daughter North, is already bracing herself for criticism about her pregnant figure.

The insider told Us Weekly magazine: "She doesn't want to be ripped apart again."

The reality star, who battled pre-eclampsia during her first pregnancy, previously admitted comments about her maternity figure really upset her.

She said at the time: "They really hurt my soul. It changed how I am in public. I've tried to live more of a private life.''

She later said: "My body just went crazy. After five months I swore I'd never get pregnant again. I got so huge and it felt like someone had taken over my body."

The reality TV star has now hired a nutritionist to help reduce her chances of getting ill. After being warned she is likely to experience the disorder again, she is doing all she can to reduce her risk.

According to website TMZ, Kim has hired an expert to devise a weekly meal plan, with two specific requests; that they include lots of water and are low in sodium.

Kim began each day when pregnant with North by tucking into a donut, but this time around she is opting for protein shakes instead.

Meanwhile the couple have explained to North that she will be getting a sibling, but the little girl doesn't fully understand.

Kim said: "She knows that Mommy has a baby in her belly, but she thinks everyone has a baby in their belly. I think she thinks it’s my belly button."
