‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ Recap: Kim Gives Birth to North!


Kim Kardashian may have waited two months to debut her daughter North West, but on the latest Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the proud mom is offering all the details on the arrival of her daughter with beau (and now, fiancé), Kanye West.

While Khloé is exploring her “desire to get deeper into the lives” of those on Skid Row, Kim is dealing with having baby North five weeks early.

Kim calls Khloé after hearing from her doctor and reveals: “I’m trying to stay as calm as possible [but] I need you guys to cancel your day. I have something called Toxemia … my liver is shutting down. Basically I have to deliver the baby today.”

Despite the unnerving news, Kim stays characteristically calm throughout the day and when it comes time to deliver Nori. From Khloé’s iPhone footage, we see a relaxed Kim get an epidural. Khloé then retells the moment to Bruce as: “Kim has the epidural and Kim is so funny. She’s like making a [smiling] face and she’s like, ‘Is it out yet?'” Khloé adds that when Kim finally held her baby for the first time, she was like: “This is my baby. I’m just realizing I was pregnant.”

And Khloé reveals that father Kanye was just as excited. “Kanye was staring for like 10 minutes and he’s like, ‘This is just like crazy.'”

When Kim comes home from the hospital, she jokes about her breast size. “They’re like the size of a huge cantaloupe … they’re ridic.” To which Khloé jokes: “I’ve never seen boobs that big in real life ever.”

Despite a rough pregnancy, Kim says that labor was the easiest thing. “I did not feel one thing, like it was not hard and then just staring at her, I’m like, ‘Oh my god!’ Everything that they say happens, that you fall so in love and it’s this deep connection, it’s true. It’s like so crazy.”

Kim also admits she’s eager to lose the baby weight and reveal her post baby bod. “I just want to come out to the world naked and be like [flipping off] ‘I look so hot. I am back. You all called me a whale, Shamu, a cow.'”

As for if Kim will show baby North on the next season of KUWTK, the mom admits: “From the start Kanye was like, ‘I’m not comfortable with selling her photos like in a magazine reveal to having her on the show.’ See it’s hard because I love seeing Mason and Penelope on the show, it’s so cute, like the little things they say, but I do feel like it’s just a different dynamic with Kanye.”

“I signed on to do this,” she continues. “But it doesn’t mean that Kanye and my child have signed on too, so I’m fine with keeping them more private, but I’m still an open book.”

And we’re glad for that!
