Kim Kardashian 'thrilled for new baby'

2013-06-18 07:51
Los Angeles - Kris Jenner says her daughter Kim Kardashian is thrilled to have a new baby girl.

Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West were keeping silent in the wake of multiple reports that Kardashian gave birth over the weekend - about a month premature.

But Jenner told E! at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday that Kim is "extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby and she's doing great and she's beautiful".

Kardashian's sister Khloe appeared to have let the word slip on Twitter.

"I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love," she tweeted on Sunday.

She quickly followed with a second tweet: "More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now."

Baby’s gender

Jenner linked to both tweets on her Twitter account, then wished West a Happy Father's Day.

Asked for comment on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys, where she was a presenter, Jenner said, "She's in charge," pointing at her publicist who whisked her away from print reporters after doing TV interviews.

The reality TV star's pregnancy was almost as anticipated as the royal pregnancy of Kate Middleton, who is due in mid-July. That's about the time the Kardashian baby had been due.

The 32-year-old has often been photographed since announcing she was pregnant, opting to continue to wear designer clothing. She told The Associated Press in April that she eventually embraced being an expecting mom after getting past "the awkward phases and stages".

The couple had initially kept the baby's gender a secret, but the sex was revealed earlier this month during one of Kardashian's doctor appointments on Keeping up with the Kardashians.

'This isn't America's baby'

When asked about how much the baby might be featured in the E! series, the channel said on Monday it was "thrilled for Kim and Kanye and out of respect for their privacy won't be offering any further comment".

News of the birth has been swaddled in secrecy. Representatives for West and Kim Kardashian didn't respond to e-mails and calls from The Associated Press, nor did any representatives for family members, friends and professional associates. And all of the weekend media reports on the birth were attributed to anonymous sources.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, West said he didn't like talking about his family or the arrival of his child.

"Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby," he said.

    Who the f**k caress? Who is this women? What has she done to be so famous? Really does my nut in how people find this kind of news interesting and of any use in their lives. Isn't there more in life to care or be interested in other than the likes of Justin Bieber, the Kardashians etc? Get a life and pay attention to real life issues!

    @Antie I want to appoligise for my last comment. After re-affirming my suspicion and checking your fb profile I realize that you only have 5 fb friends. By all means continue knitting yourself some winter socks and endulge yourself in some Hollywood skinner! If you still feel lonely you can find some comfort in some Ouma rusks.
