Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have just announced that they’re expecting their first child together. Kim is 12 weeks into her pregnancy and already there is discussion on how Kim and Kanye will play it as parents – will they be using their new bundle of joy as a marketing opportunity, or will they become quiet and reserved with parenthood? According to a source, they’re hoping to keep the baby out of Kim’s reality shows because they “don’t want their baby dragged into the family biz” and want to “ensure real privacy” for their child.
They already apparently differ on how they want to present their new baby to the world. While Kim is likely to want to sell the first images to a magazine, Kanye was impressed with how Jay-Z and Beyonce used tumblr to introduce Blue Ivy and he wants them to do something similar:
Like Jay-Z and Beyoncé did with their little Blue Ivy [they put the pics on Tumblr], Kanye will want to post the pictures his way, probably publicly through Twitter — which will no doubt put him at odds with matriarch Kris Jenner, who’ll want to make a deal with the highest bidder.”
An insider even reveals that when Kim broke the news, Kanye burst into tears and was overcome with emotion that he was about to become a father:
“He’s known this for some time now. You don’t even know how f**king excited this [guy] is about being a father… I don’t know if I should say this, but [Kanye] was crying when Kim told him she was knocked up… I heard he got on his knees in front of Kim, she rubbed his head while he was crying and he was kissing her stomach. Guess he was overwhelmed at that point and couldn’t believe he’s about to be a father.”
