Little Kimye has been in the world only a couple of days, yet just like her momma and daddy, she is already causing controversy. Despite the fact that E! News reports that Kim had a natural birth, many are quite convinced that isn't the case. Witnesses reported that they saw Kim being wheeled into a recovery room for women who had Caesarean sections. This isn't the first time we've heard that Kim was going to opt for an elective C-section -- back in April, Star magazine claimed that Kim was planning an early C-section just after the eighth-month mark -- which is indeed when little Kimye made her appearance.
According to that story, Kim had scheduled an "early C-section" because she "just wants to get her life and body back as soon as possible." Little Kimye was born five weeks early and reportedly weighs in at only five pounds.
Was it just coincidence that Star magazine predicted an early birth?
While I don't find it that hard to believe that Kim would want a C-section -- and there's nothing wrong with that if that is what the woman and her doctor feel is the best choice -- I wonder if even Kim Kardashian (who seems to sleep with makeup on) would go so far as to have a premature baby just for purposes of vanity. I'm not even sure that Kim would find a doctor willing to go along with this scheme. But it is clear that Kim was dying to get her pre-baby body back.
I hope the Kardashians aren't lying about a "natural" birth. If they did, it's probably because Kim didn't want to deal with the haterade that would accompany the birth of anything less than au naturel.
I'm one who thinks how a woman chooses to give birth is her own damn business -- but not necessarily if you're Kim Kardashian. She's had the cameras up her womb the entire pregnancy. It will be interesting to see how she describes the birth on the show -- if it wasn't filmed and she avoids talking about the experience, I'm leaning toward buying into the C-section conspiracy.
Do you think Kim had a C-section or natural birth?
