Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend
Kanye West were keeping silent in the wake of multiple reports that
Kardashian gave birth over the weekend — about a month premature.
But Jenner told E! at the Daytime
Emmys on Sunday that Kim is “extremely happy and thrilled for the new
baby and she’s doing great and she’s beautiful.”
Kardashian’s sister Khloe appeared to have let a rather cryptic cat out of the bag on Twitter.
“I can not even begin 2describe the
miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy
&resting. We appreciate all of the love,” she tweeted Sunday.
She quickly followed with a second
tweet: “More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for
understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”
Jenner linked to both tweets on her Twitter account, then wished West a Happy Father’s Day.
Asked for comment on the red carpet at
the Daytime Emmys, where she was a presenter, Jenner said, “She’s in
charge,” pointing at her publicist who whisked her away from print
reporters after doing TV interviews.
The reality TV star’s pregnancy was
almost as anticipated as the royal pregnancy of Kate Middleton, who is
due in mid-July. That’s about the time the Kardashian baby had been due.
The 32-year-old has often been
photographed since announcing she was pregnant, opting to continue to
wear designer clothing. She told The Associated Press in April that she
eventually embraced being an expecting mom after getting past “the
awkward phases and stages.”
The couple had initially kept the
baby’s gender a secret, but the sex was revealed earlier this month
during one of Kardashian’s doctor appointments on “Keeping up with the
News of the birth has been swaddled in
secrecy. Representatives for West and Kim Kardashian didn’t respond to
emails and calls from The Associated Press, nor did any representatives
for family members, friends and professional associates. And all of the
weekend media reports on the birth were attributed to anonymous sources.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, West said he didn’t like talking about his family or the arrival of his child.
“Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby,” he said.
