Too bad the name Reign is already taken! Multiple sources confirm that Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West are giving 2-year-old daughter North a little brother. "Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir," says a source close to West. “He's overjoyed!"
Kardashian is elated as well. "Kim always wanted two kids," says a Kardashian pal. "A girl and a boy."
Kardashian, 34, and West, 38, documented their struggle to conceive baby No. 2 on E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Over the past year, the fashionista underwent in vitro fertilization, consulted a cadre of doctors, and even talked to psychic John Edward.
"Kim was really down about it," a source says of her inability to get pregnant. "And she was worried." As she recently told Glamour, "The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster."
The day after that aired, the Selfish author — now in her second trimester, according to a source — told Us how excited she is: “I'm so grateful to be pregnant when we didn’t even think it was going to happen.”
She said that she didn't even mind her severe morning sickness. "I can barely get out of bed," she continued. "But it’s so worth it. I don’t really care."
Kardashian felt well enough to browse for boys' baby clothes with West at New York City boutique Trico Field June 1. "Just like Nori," says the West source, "this kid will be well-dressed." Bring on the custom-made Balmain!
