That whole sex of the baby thing is a conundrum, isn't it? Before ultrasounds, no one knew the sex of the baby and expectant parents and their family and friends (as well as perfect strangers) would hazard various guesses based on cravings, how the baby is being "carried," even butt size. Now, of course, we can all know the sex of a baby before its born thanks to modern day technology. Oh, and "sources."
Yep, if you're a celebrity, and you take someone into your confidence, it's not unlikely that someone could turn around and run to a tabloid with the news. And that is apparently what's happened to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Reportedly, they know the sex of the child. And told someone. That someone told US Weekly. And if you prefer to be surprised come Kim's July delivery, don't read any further.
Kim and Kanye are having a baby ... girl! At least that's what so-and-so (Kim herself? Kris Jenner? A blabbermouth pal? A doctor??) told US Weekly. Says the source:
They're over the moon! Kanye always wanted a girl. He's so excited. It's really cute how excited he is.
Hmmm. What about Kim? You'd almost think Kanye was having the baby. Sounds like this source was in Kanye's camp.
Well, certainly the Kardashian klan is heavy on the girls. I always wonder if certain sexes run in certain families. On my maternal side, we had five generations of nothing but the XX chromosome. Somehow that never made us megamillionaires, though.
I'm guessing this comes as good news for Kim, who probably welcomes the opportunity to dress a little girl. But you have to wonder about this source. Did he/she get permission to run to the press? If not, what kind of friend is this? Sheesh.
Anyway, we don't know for sure that this source knows what they're talking about. Perhaps Kim told people it was a girl just to throw everyone off! Maybe it's really a boy. (That'd be sneaky.) Until she confirms, we won't know 100 percent. But I do know this. There's at least a 50-50 chance it's a girl. Haha!
I hope the couple don't spill the name of the baby to someone too, or surely that will hit the media as well. C'mon, Kimye, we wanna be surprised!
Do you think it's really a girl?
