Well, America’s William & Kate ruined a child’s life by welcoming their first baby on Saturday in Los Angeles nearly five weeks ahead of schedule (‘cos don’t even play me and try to say homegirl delivered naturally). While we still don’t know baby Kimye’s name, we’re already talking about where she’ll make her exclusive debut, with many guessing that she’ll show up on Keeping Up with the Kardashians since the show is still filming for the next few months. Oh, goody!
Her sex was revealed on the Season 8 premiere of E!‘s Keeping Up With The Kardashians less than two weeks ago. And now the baby daughter of series’ star Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West, born today in Los Angeles, will likely make her debut on the hit reality series later this season. Keeping Up With The Kardashians is currently in production and is slated to continue filming for another couple of months. But unlike the lavish special on Kardashian’s ill-fated wedding to Kris Humphries, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan is not getting her own E! special, at least not for now.
According to a rep for E!, the network will air the previously scheduled Episode 3 of the show’s eighth season tomorrow night and there are no immediate plans for a baby special. The extent of newborn’s presence on Keeping Up also is unclear as father West has vowed never to appear on the show again and recently told the NYT that he will be protective of his child, claiming that she “isn’t America’s baby.” The girl’s arrival also coincides with new grandma Kris Jenner‘s promo campaign for the July 15 launch of her syndicated talk show and is likely to give her appearances a boost.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are both the worst in their own unique ways, but I’m actually torn on what’s going to happen here. Kim lives for reality TV and being seen and will no doubt want to paste baby Kimye’s face on every surface going, so it seems naturally that she’ll be on the show. Kanye is vehemently against any of this shit, which begs the question of why the hell they got together in the first place and what they actually have in common when their core values are so starkly different (supposedly).
What do you think? Will this baby be on the show or will they give an exclusive premiere to People or something first? Will Kanye succeed in keeping the baby out of the public eye?
