Kim Kardashian to spend $1m on birth

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian's birth looks set to cost more than $1m.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West in July, and the couple are splashing just under R40 000 per day on a deluxe birthing suite at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, where the 32-year-old star is expected to spend at least three days.

A source said: "This is not going to be just any delivery, even by celebrity standards.

"Kim has already spent tens of thousands of dollars to make sure things go down without a glitch."

Kim and Kanye have splashed out thousands to ensure the maternity suite, which features a full-size bath tub, two beds, a flat-screen TV, as well as a separate sitting room with a sofa and a dining table, will be decorated with dozens of white roses.

Restaurants on call

In case the couple don't enjoy the three gourmet meals they will get each day, the reality star has also made sure several of her favourite restaurants are on call for the duration of her stay.

Kim is splashing almost $1 000 a day on a photographer to capture her first week as a mother and the delivery, during which she will be wearing top of the range clothing after the couple spent $25 000 on luxury lingerie in Paris last month to ensure she will look the part while giving birth.

The source told National Enquirer magazine: "[Kim] had no intention of wearing a plain old hospital gown that's been worn by other women."

And Kim's push present - a gift traditionally given to a mother from her partner after she has the baby - is expected to send the total cost of her birth into the seven-figure mark.

The source added: "Kanye better have done his shopping. Kim is expecting a huge reward for all the months she's spent with swollen feet, a big weight gain, morning sickness and a massive baby belly." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
