There's no doubt he's thrilled to become a father, but supposedly Kanye West isn't planning on watching Kim Kardashian give birth, so it sounds like she's going to be all alone in the delivery room. (Minus the doctors, nurses, and possibly a camera crew if she decides to go that route.)
Apparently Kanye is a bit on the squeamish side and "hates blood" and is afraid he'll "freak" while watching his child come out of Kim's va-jay-jay.
And while men who faint or panic at the sight of blood are pretty lame, Kanye is smart to forgo being witness to his child's birth. Because if he does watch Kim deliver his baby, he may never look at her the same way again -- and their sex life may never be good again or may cease to exist altogether.
Yes, it happens. Loving and devoted husbands who were once all over their wives suddenly lose interest the minute they witness a human being coming out of her lady parts. Don't even bother trying to convince yourself that it won't happen to you -- because it very well might.
I know, because it happened to me. It's a little phenomenon I now like to call "pulling an Elvis." After Elvis watched Priscilla give birth to Lisa Marie, he supposedly had no interest in her sexually anymore. He just couldn't look at her as a sexual being, which actually makes sense if you think about how husbands must feel watching their wife's vag expand, stretch, and spew all sorts of wacky fluids and such. (Not sexy. At all.)
Ok, back to my experience and my husband "pulling an Elvis" on me after the birth of our child. For us, sex has never been the same since we became parents. It was like a switch got flipped on our bedroom action, and it's never been turned back on again. And it's not because we're tired or don't have time. Basically, he really doesn't seem interested, and I honestly think he stopped being attracted to me after he saw me give birth.
Sure, we still "do it" a few times a year. (Gasp. Yes, that infrequently.) But even then, it feels like some sort of obligation, like something we check off a to-do list just so we can say we've done it. And when it does happen, I usually have to ask for it, which is pretty humiliating. (Ok, so it's really humiliating.)
If I could go back in time, I would still allow him to be in the delivery room with me, but I'd make him stand behind me the entire time, so he didn't see the actual birth. I can't help but wonder if it would've made a difference if he hadn't watched, and if we'd have a healthy, active, normal sex life at this point in our lives.
Hopefully, if Kanye really doesn't want to be in that delivery room, he'll stick to his guns on the issue even if Kim begs and pleads with him to reconsider. Why ruin a perfectly decent sex life if you don't have to?
Is your husband planning on watching the birth of your baby?
