Kim books entire hospital floor for birth

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian will take over an entire hospital floor for her birth.

The 32-year-old reality star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July and she wants her baby's first moments to be "idyllic", so she has booked a whole floor to herself at her chosen facility for when she goes into labour.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kim's taking the preparations for childbirth very seriously. She wants everything to be perfect and, luckily for her, money is no object.

"Kim's been reading about how monumental the first few moments of a baby's life are and wants her child's entry to the world to be idyllic. They've booked an entire floor at their chosen hospital and her room will be totally sound-proofed before the delivery."

Complete privacy

The raven-haired beauty will also create a relaxing ambience with blue, green and purple lighting, in addition to calming music, to help keep her calm.

"She wants all outside influences and noise of traffic muted," the source added.

"Kim's read that mood lighting and atmosphere are important, so she plans to reflect the sounds of nature with a trickling water and soothing wind CD."

Kim is not the first star to want complete privacy when they give birth.

Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z - who is friends with Kanye - rented an entire floor at New York's Lenox Hill Hospital when the singer delivered their daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012 to keep away prying eyes.
