Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Used Gender Selection to Get a Baby Boy

While we all rejoiced over the news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were adding a little boy to their family, both K's were thinking We knew it! It's not because they are psychic (though that could be contested), it's that they reportedly only had boy embryos implanted during a costly IVF procedure.


Money can buy you the gender of your choice! Listen, I'm not going to pick on Kimye for this -- they wanted a boy and there is a procedure that supposedly costs about $17,000 to isolate baby boy embryos for implantation. They have the money, and so they used it to get what they want. We all do that in ways big and small. No big deal.

When I was pregnant, I wanted a girl so bad! I was pregnant with twins and when getting the ultrasound, the doctor spotted the boy first. I was happy. I pictured a cute little guy and then I hoped for the doc to tell me his twin was female. Please let her be a girl. Please girl, girl, girl, was what I chanted in my mind. She was! Of course I would have loved having twin boys, too. Sort of. I mean, of course I would have!

An insider who is close to the Wests said:

Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family. Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir.

I'm so happy for them! IVF can be an emotional experience -- any time you are trying to conceive is emotional, too. Kim had some struggles getting pregnant with baby number two, and this is just wonderful news that she was able to use the wonders of modern medicine to add to her family.

And Kanye gets his "heir." They really are our version of royalty.

What do you think about Kimye using gender selection?
