Merry Christmas ?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via gestational carrier, which is how they brought Chicago West into the world. E! News said that the baby was due in May, and I actually believe that this will be the last Kardashian-West kid. If Kim ever divorces Kanye, she might have a baby with her new husband, but for now, I think Fourth West will be it. They’ll have a perfectly symmetrical family then – two girls and two boys, and they will have lined it up so it’s girl-boy-girl-boy. We haven’t heard anything about potential names, but I think the same old options are up in the air… Tru West, Quatro West, Calabasas West, you get the idea. Think something with one syllable, with branding potential.
Anyway, the Four West won’t be here for months, but Kim and Kanye are already nesting and preparing for him. You would think that they already have all of the baby necessities – after all, Chicago isn’t even out of diapers yet, for the love of God. But according to People’s source, Kim and Kanye don’t DO hand-me-downs for their kids. And they’re even doing a baby shower for Quatro West. That is so tacky and wasteful.
Only the freshest duds will do for Kanye and Kim Kardashian West‘s little one on the way. Five days after PEOPLE confirmed the rapper, 41, and reality star, 38, are expecting their fourth child, a source says they are “in nesting mode” — and likely have a lot to buy before baby arrives.
“They don’t really do hand-me-downs, so each baby is like their first,” the insider explains to PEOPLE of the couple — who are already parents to Chicago, 1 this month, Saint, 3, and North, 5½ — adding that they donate the used clothes to charity.
“They’re buying everything they need for him, and Kanye insists they go top-of-the-line for everything. So they’ve been shopping. Kanye is a big online shopper,” the source continues of the Yeezy designer. “When he can’t sleep, he gets online and buys whatever he wants. A lot of what they’re getting, they order online. They’re going to have everything the baby needs pretty soon. And the rest of the family is big on getting gifts, too,” the source reveals. “This baby is going to have everything he needs.”
Family and friends will be able to honor the couple with gifts soon enough: a source told PEOPLE last week Kardashian West is planning an upcoming shower.
“Kim plans on having a baby shower for No. 4 too,” the source told PEOPLE of their bundle of joy, who’s reportedly due in the spring, via surrogate. “They are looking forward to another baby.”
Apparently, the whole “baby shower for the second/third/fourth baby” is one of those hot-button topics in the Mommy Wars. I look at it through the perspective of a baby shower guest – I would buy something really nice for a first-time mom’s baby shower. But if I was asked to a baby shower for someone’s third or fourth baby, that gift is coming from Walmart. Sorry not sorry. Especially if the parents are wealthy like Kim and Kanye – they already have a son, and Saint’s barely-worn baby clothes will still look fresh on new baby Calabasas “Cala” West. They already have baby buggies and bottles and and all of that, and if not, they can and should buy it for themselves instead of making all of their friends just buy them more sh-t. A glut of mindless consumerism, ugh.
