North West was only 4 lbs, 15 ounces when she was born: too tiny for a photoshoot?

Is anyone else expecting this week’s People Magazine cover to be Kim Kardashian, Kanye and baby North West? I’m not sure if it will happen this week, but I do have high hopes. While I imagine Kris Jenner is working the phones, trying to get the best price for the first baby photos, she’s probably also fighting with Kanye over creative control of the newest money-maker. And besides all that… North West is SMALL. She was born premature (by anywhere from three to five weeks) and Us Weekly reports that North was less than 5 pounds when she was born:

North West is a tiny treasure! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their little girl, nicknamed “Nori” about five weeks early — and, a close source tells Us Weekly exclusively, the reality star and rapper’s baby weighed in at 4 pounds, 15 ounces at birth. “She’s tiny and perfect,” another source tells Us. “She looks just like Kim — with her dark hair and some of her features.”

The first source adds that “Kim is breastfeeding,” and that “the baby is healthy.” Which is certainly a big relief for Kardashian, 32, and West, 36, who endured a frightening medical emergency when doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles delivered North prematurely on June 15.

“Kim was scared,” another insider reveals. “And the doctors had to assure her that even though the baby was early, she was ready.”

Thankfully, after getting the all-clear from her medical team, mother and baby left the hospital after a week last Friday, and the happy family — including West — are settling in.

“They are both so in love with their little girl,” marvels a pal.

See? The baby might be too tiny for “baby’s first photo shoot”. They might want to let her gain some weight and stuff. Or, who knows, maybe they won’t even sell the first photos. Hahaha. Who are we kidding? Come hell or high water, Kris Jenner will sell those photos. Speaking of, Page Six has an interesting story about Kris and Kanye’s relationship – some people think that Kanye hates Kris, but Page Six claims Kris and ‘Ye might be closer than we imagined:

Kim Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, listened to Kanye West’s new album “Yeezus” while the rapper was still putting finishing touches on it in Paris. W magazine reports in its August issue that Jenner — the grandmother of unfortunately named newborn North West — dropped by West’s Paris apartment to hear the tunes.

West reportedly played Jenner a track called “Awesome,” which is about Kardashian. Kris’ reaction?

“Great job!” But West didn’t find the compliment as flattering as Jenner intended, and maybe that’s why it didn’t make it onto the album.

“Great job?” West shot back, raising his eyebrows. Jenner said of another track: “This is amazing!”

In the profile, West dodges questions about his relationship with his reality-star girlfriend until he’s asked if he’s had any qualms about appearing on her E! series.

“Oh, that’s just all for love. It’s simply that,” he answers. “At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding, or any set of cool people, or attempting to impress anyone. Because true love is just the way you feel.” But, he adds, “Thoughts and feelings can disagree sometimes.”

[From Page Six]

WWD has more details about the exchange between Kanye and Kris – Kanye allegedly responded, “Great job? Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid! Great job, belt hoops, for keeping my pants up.” Kanye doesn’t want critics, he wants supplicants – I guess Kris was supposed to say “this is so amazing, I can’t breathe through the epic genius.” But here’s another hilarious quote – when asked about his odd way of speaking, Kanye told the W Mag writer, “Turn my flea market of information into a beautiful living space.” Perfection!

    Oh bla, bla bla. Kimmode this, Kanye that, now we have to hear about North. These people are so superficial and so great at lying and saying one thing while doing another it’s very hard to believe one word that comes out of either’s camp. I do feel bad for little North and that’s it. Hopefully she has great nannies that will do a terrific job in raising her. I find it really funny when the story is how much little North looks like Kimmode who has had so much plastic surgery that I doubt anyone without actual pictures of her remember what she truly looks like! Other than that these two (Kimmode & Kanye) are nothing more than tedious and boring.

    • littlestar says:

      I know, I agree. I’m at the point where I don’t believe any Kardashian story. They lie when it suits them, which is pretty much ALL THE TIME.

      When is the Kardashian reality reign going to end? I’m beginning to realize it’s us “haters” who are keeping them going. And I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t know if I can actually stop reading stories about them LOL :( .

      • FLORC says:

        Oh Littlestar
        Knowing is half the battle. All these people that love to hate the Kardashians are feeding the beast! You all love to hate and get downright nasty attacking even the newborn baby. I’ll be happy to see them gone too, but it’s a few years out.

        And this isn’t to you personally Littlestar. Your comments are better than the majority i read on these KimK pages.

        As a side note… It’s a baby. Don’t attack it because it’s a few days old and you hate its mother.

      • Liz says:

        It will end. Remember when people were fascinated with Jon and Kate Gosselin? Then everyone found out what a fake liar she is. The tide turned and everyone was hating. Then it ended. The Kardashians are in the stage where everyone hates them and they will also be gone.

  2. Fritzi Schnitzer says:

    As big as Kim got, I call B.S. on the whole 5 pound baby thing. But, then again, B.S. made this family a fortune.

    • Butterfly J says:

      I’m not sure what to think. That baby is tiny, even for a 5-week (?) early child. Kim must have had some serious health issues for the baby to be so small; and if that was the case, I feel that it was shameful that she didn’t rest during her pregnancy. I had my daughter 2 months ago; she was three weeks early and 6 lbs 3oz. I only weighed 136 lbs at the end of the pregnancy. So based upon my experience, something is really fishy, here.

      • MattyLove says:

        The baby would only be a little small for a 5 week premature baby…smallish for a 3 week preemie. A 5 week preemie can be expected to be ~5.5 lbs. It really looks like Kim had preeclampsia. Hence the excessive swelling in her feet and lower extremities. The baby being SLIGHTLY small for her gestational age is also an indication of preeclampsia. It’s called growth restriction and it’s a major component of preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is completely unpredictable and unpreventable. The most prominent current theory is that it involves a poor placental connection as a result of an immune attack of the mother’s system on the spiral arteries. Please don’t turn a very likely, legitimate health condition into speculation about “something fishy.” I’m sure this was a very scary experience for the family, regardless of what we think of them regarding the rest of their lives. There is nothing that Kim could have done to create or prevent this situation from happening. ~NICU Nurse

      • Cazzie says:

        My Mom went into labor four weeks early and I weighed under five poundswhen I was born. Spent a week in the hospital in an incubator and then they sent me home. Luckily I have never stayed overnight in a hospital since then, and I am 5’7″ and besides a mild case of “preemie forehead” seem to have suffered no lasting effects.

        Preemie forehead is kind of a bulge at the top of a person’s forehead – it can also show up as looking almost like a crease across the forehead about an inch above the eyebrows.

        My sister’s husband is a surgeon and he mentioned it to me – I had never heard the term before. Imagine my surprise when I looked in the mirror and saw I had it! It’s not a big deal, though, no health effects associated with it.

      • Butterfly J says:

        Thanks for the response. I was actually alluding to IUGR, and I thought it was fishy that (apparenlty) no doctor noticed the baby’s growth curve or cautioned her earlier (since she was flying all over the place ALL the time). I think she either didn’t take good enough care of herself, didn’t get a proper medical diagnosis for a serious condition (and she has the money for the best medical care), or didn’t care if she did get a diagnosis, and it annoys me. So that’s what strikes me as fishy.

      • Anon says:

        Pregnancy is very different for everyone! I gained 80 lbs with my first born, had preeclampsia, was induced 2 wks early- my girl weighed 4 lbs 14 oz and was 21 inches long. Her pediatrician said she was in good health with low gestational weight. Nine years later, she is perfectly healthy but still weighs just 51 lbs. she’s petite! (And I gained 80 lbs bc I went nutts with my cravings and was severely swollen due to preeclampsia.)

      • juststeph says:

        Other than kardashian reports, do we really know how much the baby weighs? I’m honestly asking.

    • Itsa Reallyme says:

      I don’t believe it either. And, if she is that small, I don’t believe it’s because she was premature. I believe it’s because her “mother” didn’t take care of herself. Sometimes babies don’t grow enough in utero and doctors tell the mother’s to put themselves on bedrest so the baby can grow. If mama uses too much energy it doesn’t allow baby to grow. We all saw how much Kim slowed down when the dr. told her to.

      • lA says:

        I was 4 lbs. 14 oz., born at 36 weeks. My daughter was 5 lbs. 6 oz., born at 37 weeks. I didn’t “do” anything to cause it, and neither did my mother. I’m no KK apologist, but judging someone else’s pregnancy without proof ain’t cool, IMO.

      • Katrina says:

        Itsa Reallyme, you need to educate yourself, and quit spreading such nonsense. Almost any idiot (clearly not all) knows that a mother being active doesn’t prevent a baby from growing. Any nutrients that fetus needs, it is going to get first and foremost before the mother. The mother will be exhausted, and feeling poorly long before she affects her baby if she isn’t taking care of herself properly. There are any number of reasons as to why Kim Kardashian’s baby may have been born at a lower birth weight, but “using too much energy” isn’t one of them. That is simply incorrect, uneduated information that you’re trying to sell.

      • MattyLove says:

        This is such a ridiculous assertion. If she had preeclampsia (and it seriously looks like she did), there is nothing she could have done to cause it or prevent it. Furthermore there is NO TREATMENT beyond delivery of the baby and (especially) the placenta, which is the source of the angiotensic factors that are causing all the problems. The only reason a Dr. would put a preeclamptic woman on bedrest would be if it was so early in the pregnancy that they were concerned about the baby’s lung development. The woman is on bedrest to protect herself as much as possible from the effects of the high blood pressure while they administer steroids to speed the baby’s lung development. As soon as they think the baby is in the “safe” zone as far as lung development, they will deliver the baby. Otherwise the condition will continue to progress, regardless of what the mother does or does not do. The mother does not “steal” energy from the baby. Ridiculous.

    • hannah says:

      my nephew was born weighing in at 4 lbs 3 ounces . He was 5 weeks early due to preeclampsia. He went home after 2 weeks with 4 lbs 7 ounces

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      The size of the mom is no indication of how big the baby is. All things considering, her bump never really got that big. It was all the rest of her that grew, and a lot of it was water weight which happens with pre-eclampia.

    • wiffie says:

      Sorry. Belly size size has nothing to do with baby size. You can have a smaller baby forward in the uterus with a lot of fluid looking big, out a big baby, far back, not showing much. If she’s short, baby can grow out, while a tall woman with a long torso can barely show. Nice try though.

    • bellapen says:

      I don’t know. While I don’t like Kimye one bit, I do have to add my two cents. My twins were born exactly four weeks early at 4lbs. 11 oz and 5 lbs. 1 oz. I weighed 116 the day after. Each pregnancy is different. I do think something is not quite right with their story and how why we keep hearing about Kanye being so supportive. Does not sound right to me. That is the part that irritates me.

  3. Evelyn says:

    Oh my god, whenever I hear a Kanye West anecdote, I can’t help but laugh. Aziz Ansari talked about him on one of his stand up specials, and if you haven’t seen it, see it! He tells one story where he walks into Kanyes house and he’s listening to 808s and Heartbreak by himself and getting so into it. And when he asks him “Isn’t this *your* album?” He just says “yeah, these beats are dope”

  4. chibichichai says:

    i bet they are wishing they had Humphries now that they see king Kanye I’m all his glory.

    Sidenote I’m not even going to say his name in reference to Jesus. it goes against my beliefs. i really was offended by him thinking he is on the level of Jesus

  5. Paloma says:

    Ah yes, Kanye the genius …… in his eyes.

    So gracious of him to appear on Kim’s reality show even though it was terribly beneath him.

  6. turningviolet says:

    I so hope they don’t sell pictures, but yeah, that’s not going to happen.

    4.15 is teeny; that said all 3 of mine were smaller than that (smallest was just 2.5lb – she fit snugly in her daddy’s hand).

    • Lisa says:

      Awww, I was 2.4 when I was born!

      • hunter says:

        WOAH! I don’t understand how Kim was so pregnant (large) if the baby is so small… is that normal?

      • Marigold says:

        A baby doesn’t make up that much of what a pregnant woman gains. Think about it-the average baby weighs around 7.8-8lb (I’m using legitimate weight-16oz = 1lb scale) and the average woman gains 25-35lb. She was already large chested and had assets in the back too. She clearly retained a lot of water, not to mention the placenta is in that uterus too. So, to me, if this is North’s (it hurt to type that) true weight, it’s not that surprising.

      • MrsB says:

        If she really had preeclampsia(high blood pressure) that is pretty normal for her to be so big and the baby small. I just recently had a friend that had to deliver at 31 weeks because of preeclampsia and he was only 2.5 Lb and was the biggest baby in NICU! So medical technology and what they can do these days is amazing. Relatively speaking, 5 Lb is pretty good.

      • Seagulls says:

        @hunter fun fact: in an average pregnancy (I have no preeclampsia clue), you will double your blood volume by the end. Your breasts each gain between 1-5 pounds as the mammary glands get going and you lay down more fat in them, the placenta is two pounds or so, the uterus itself adds a pound or two, plus there’s usually a little water retention (potentially a dangerous amount, as with PE). Oh, and the baby who is, on average about 7.5 pounds.

  7. Belle Epoch says:

    It’s kindof sad the way they repeatedly blast out the same information: THE BABY DOES NOT LOOK LIKE KANYE. We’ll know when we see a photo. Blue Ivy looks exactly like Jay-Z.

  8. bammer says:

    Yes I’m sick of this code word subliminal message of “straight” hair and Kim features. It’s making me uncomfortable that the Kardashian camp feels the need to do that. What are they going to do as her hair changes and skin darkens? That poor little girl.

    • Jules says:

      I have noticed that as well.

      • Sabrine says:

        They keep saying the baby has “straight” hair and “Kim’s nose.” Therefore, she is “beautiful.” It’s almost like they’re saying well thank Gawd she doesn’t look like her father.

        I hope they wait for three months to post a baby photo. Why give in to the public and media? It’s their baby. They can do what they want, not what the old Granny wants.

    • littlestar says:

      Perhaps they are trying to make sure people don’t question the baby’s paternity once pictures are shown? By continually reinforcing that she looks like Kim, maybe they’ll think Celebitches like us won’t question why she doesn’t look like Kanye ;) lol. Just a guess :) .

    • Itsa Reallyme says:

      I know. I think that’s gross that they keep saying that. The child is half black/half Armenian. You can talk about how straight her hair is as much as you want, Kris but your grandchild is half black and there’s not a thing wrong with that!

    • Jayna says:

      I agree. This time they said Kim’s straight hair and now used the term “some of her features” instead of Kim’s nose and mouth. LOL I guess they softened it due to backlash over the baby has her little nose and mouth comment previously. Very racist overtones to me, wanting to make clear the baby looks like Kim and her hair and features, small nose, mouth, straight hair. She looks like Kim (Meaning fairer than Kanye). It’s so obvious what they were trying to convey in their ever not so subltle way.

    • Violet says:


      I can’t believe I’m defending the Kartrashians, but here goes. I say we hold off on making those kind of judgments until we see actual photos of the baby.

      Until then, there’s no reason to believe those descriptions aren’t just factual — there’s every possibility that NW does indeed have straight hair and a light complexion, thus resembling Kim more than Kayne. That might change as NW gets older, or it might not.

      A cousin of mine has an African-American father and German mother, and looks Mediterranean herself — slightly wavy brown hair, green eyes, olive complexion, her mother’s features. One of her two brothers has the same hair as her, but both brothers look African-American and don’t resemble the mother at all.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        It’s weird how genetics play out….my mom is black…she’s very dark, and has only had kids with white men…out of the five of us…only one is dark. That’s my twin brother…he’s dark with dark brown eyes and black hair…while I have dark brown hair and eyes, and am PALE…the only way that you could tell that I was black at all was because my hair went into an afro everytime I combed it (the other two girls in the family have wavy hair). Everyone is always surprised when they find out we’re twins because we’re so different looking.

      • jess says:

        Right? My cousin is WHITE. Like pale, blonde, blue eyes, and his wife is half French, half Nigerian. Their first daughter is caramel toned, and their son has FLAMING orange hair and is very light. Their most recent daughter looks like their son with their first daughter’s coloring. It’s so crazy, but so fun to guess what the baby is going to look like haha

      • selena says:

        Exactly….most mixed race babies are born pale with straight hair. My boys still dont match their little nail beds, it takes a long time for their full beautiful clour too bloom. Kanye has strong features, and I’m sure his genes will dominate hers..

    • DiamondGirl says:

      But Blue Ivy had straight hair in her first pics too, so that means nothing. Just saying its straight hair doesn’t mean racism, geez.

      • Jestie says:

        I look at my 9mth old son now and he looks totally different than in his first few days/weeks. Back then his now big round eyes were squinty looking, his forehead was massive, his chin was pointy, and his cheeks looked kind of swollen. So in essence he looked like a total cute scrunchy-faced newborn. It says a lot about the work/fillers/botox KK has had done if she thinks her newborn has her features.

      • MW says:

        I know babies change and this has nothing at all to do with hair straightness, or skin color. But does anyone besides me think the original pic of Blue Ivy that was released, is the same baby we are now seeing that looks exactly like Jay Z. I just can’t believe it. That baby in the first pic, to me, first looks way older than a newborn, and I can’t see her features from then, suddenly, or EVER, morphing into her features now. JMHO.

    • fallen says:

      I don’t really think that this info is coming from them… But if it is, black or mixed babies can be born with straight hair, and its a baby of course the nose is going to be small. I feel like too much is being read into these ‘reports’ on the appearance of the baby.

  9. Michele says:

    Kanye’s “Kanyeisms” remind me of that SNL skit, “The Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Talked To At The Party.”. How does anyone spend 5 minutes conversing with him without busting out in laughter?
    They also read like #shitmydadsays

    • gg says:


      He’s such an epic genius (who can neither rap nor sing) that he writes a song about his pregnant lady and calls it “Awesome”?. Just like some 12-year-old with a severely limited vocabulary. Wow, the genius just keeps on coming.

      Kris probably thinks it’s pure crap and couldn’t think of anything else to say.

  10. Jackson says:

    KK got to stay in the hospital for A WEEK? I understand the baby being in there for a week, but KK also stayed in for a week? Wow. Most new moms are kicked to the curb in, what, 24 hours?? It’s good to be rich.

  11. Sarah says:

    I’m sure holding off the photos until the baby is older will gain a lot of teaser covers anyway. My daughter was full term at 7lbs6oz and still didn’t look right for a couple of weeks. I’m sure they want her photographed at her best.

    • MyCatLoves TV says:

      I bet you are right and doesn’t it make you sad that Mommy and Granny have already started making a perfect baby girl feel as if she isn’t “at her best.” I’m glad my mom never felt that way or else I would have never been let outside!

      (….still trying to find my own personal “at my best” moment…!!!)

    • MW says:

      Maybe she was somewhat jaundiced. My youngest son was born at least 3 weeks early (I was not planning that one and was not positive of the due date) and he weighed 7#3 oz., but had to put him under bili lights at home for a couple of days.

  12. Tasha says:

    My take on the photoshoot is that Kim is waiting until after she recovers for tummy tuck ( which I believe she had ) to do the photoshoot so she can claim she lost the wait naturally or with the help the diet they are partners with ( sorry don’t no the name of it. )

  13. marie says:

    question.. did they (Kris) leak info of the baby being born early? If it were me and I had the option, no one would have known about my child until she was older, healthier. I would have used those 4-5 weeks to get better acquainted with my child and screw the announcement.

  14. Spooks says:

    Has anyone seen Kris J on Fashion Police? That cake smearing bit was so awkward. I know it was probably previously planed, but still, Joan didn’t seem pleased.

  15. JL says:

    Premature babies are more susceptible to infections and germs, so I applaud the decision to keep her in and not expose her to unnecessary people (reporters and photographers).
    As for money making, plotting etc….I really don’t care as long as the child’s health is protected.

  16. j.eyre says:

    I know I am going to be standing alone on this but the name is really growing on me. I kind of love the name North West. Not in a “I would name a kid North” way, but it has a nice sound to it and all kinds of historical and spiritual connections are connected to the direction North. There are wonderful literary references as well – it could be a really powerful name. I think I like it better than Nori.

  17. Melissa says:

    Am I the only one who cringes when “sources” talk about how “tiny and cute and perfect” the baby is as if being only 4-5 lbs is something to be considered “adorable” rather than a potential health risk due to her premature birth? I’m glad the baby is healthy but all this talk about how small she is as if its a good thing is nauseating considering the circumstances.

    The baby is tiny, she looks just like Kim! Kim is tiny too!!!!!! They’re both so tiny!!!! No fatties here! Ugh.

  18. Naye in VA says:

    Am I the only person who thought you couldnt breastfeed with implants? Is that true? She has implants right?

  19. Miss South Africa says:

    Did they really name their child North West? Because the first time I heard about it I thought that it was just tabloid speculation

  20. Sisi says:

    I’m sure they are following the Blue Ivy scenario, because in Kims eyes:
    Jay B = Kimye

    The first picture of Blue was published after a few weeks.

  21. Domestic_diva says:

    I had two friends last year give birth to 4lb babies that were perfectly healthy just small and 37 weeks is considered full term so not falling into the whole baby North is this fragile preemie drama

  22. EscapedConvent says:

    Is the song “Awesome” the one with these lyrics:

    “Baby, you’re awesome.
    I’m also awesome.
    We’re awesome.”

    I feel sorry for delusional songwriters like Leonard Cohen & Joni Mitchell—they thought they were writing “lyrics”?

    Everyone but Yeezus can stop trying to write now—he has done “lyrics” to perfection.

  23. emmie_a says:

    Who cares what the baby looks like? Even if you’re a fan of either parent, what does it matter what the baby looks like? It’s a baby – it’s not going to look like that for long. I just don’t get the obsession with baby pics.

  24. Michele says:

    At under 5 lbs, Baby West is the perfect size for carrying around in Kim’s Birkin bag!
    Kim couldn’t even properly care for the pets she’s had. I wonder what kind of mom she’ll make. Thank goodness for Kourtney – she’ll kick Kim and Kanye’s butts if she feels they’re neglecting that baby.

  25. janie says:

    I don’t believe she is that small. The birth certificate has been shown with so much marked out. There is more drama if they keep talking about how early she was. I do hope they are both hands on as claimed.

  26. Syko says:

    My daughter’s water broke at 35 weeks 4 days. Her son was 5 lb. 1 oz. They were in the hospital 2 days, with home nurses sent to check him daily for a week at home. We took LOTS of pictures.

    BTW, he is 6’2″ now.

  27. Amy says:

    Wouldn’t surprise me if she had a C section a month early to avoid gaining even more weight.

  28. Stef Leppard says:

    Has anyone else noticed the multiple KIM IS BREASTFEEDING AND SHE LOVES IT references lately? Not that I care whether or not she as a woman chooses to breastfeed, but why are they pushing that so hard? Makes me think she’s NOT breastfeeding but they think it looks better if she is.

  29. Elisabeth says:

    Did anyone read the Star?
    hilarious headline screams

    Kim refuses to breastfeed
    “I’ve ruined my body enough’ she says


  30. palermo says:

    They are no doubt waiting for Kris’ talk show to debut this baby

  31. HannahF says:

    My older niece was 5lbs 1 oz and niece #2 was not much bigger. Both were full term–in fact #2 was induced. They are now 4’11″ and 5’2″ respectively. The thing is my sister is 5’1″ and my brother-in-law is cough*5’5″*cough. They were not going to make large kids. Kim and Kanye are both really short. Something to consider

    • Tasha says:

      Agree I like your niece was 5lbs when I was born full term and I’m 4″11 now my mom is 5 foot and dad is 6 foot. I take after my mom side of the family who are very short.

      I think K and co are trying to use North smallness if she even is that small ( sorry I wouldn’t put it pass them to lie about North weight ) as a way of getting more attention and sympathy.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Hubs was 10 pounds when he was born, and all of my boys (but not my daughter) are or will be over 6’2′.

        Our youngest was born 3-and-a-half weeks early via ER C-section (my BP spiked into stroke territory), and he STILL weighed in at 8lbs, 9oz.

  32. jay says:

    I’ll just say that I think this woaman had this baby expell from her body. After a lot of fat jokes and press.

  33. TOPgirl says:

    I’m still trying to get over that child’s name.

  34. lisa says:

    she’s getting the standard kardashian nose job first

  35. TG says:

    Why do they keep stressing how much the baby looks like Kim? It is disgusting. The baby has dark hair so it looks like Kim? last I checked Kanye has dark hair too. I think it is more vanity than racism with this Klan though.

  36. EIleen says:

    Every pregnancy is unique-have had babies born in my family that size who do just fine-lung development is critically important-multiples tend to develop on average quicker than singletons. Pregnancy stress on mothers is also important-anyone who has a healthy child/mother should be thankful period

    Even though I detest pimpmomager, if this is the way Kanye really speaks, he does not come across as a stylist, sophisticated rapper (which is an oxymoron IMO) but rather a very stupid, uneducated person. It wouldn’t surprise me if he never made it to high school.

    • Jayna says:

      Kanye’s mother, Dr. Donda West, was a professor of English at a college and even the Chair of the English Department at one university before becoming his manager. He was raised middle class. He is far from uneducated. But Kanye has always come across in live interviews as very inarticulate and unable to really convey his thoughts in an intelligent manner, especially compared to his once arch nemisis, 50 Cent, who comes across in interviews extremely intelligent and is so charming (something Kanye lacks as well) and has people eating out of the palm of his hand in interviews. I always find 50 Cent to be an interesting interview. I remember they both were interviewed in a close time span and the difference was so noticeable.

      But Kanye is a very talented producer and visionary in many aspects of hip-hop. No one can take that away from him, so hardly stupid no matter how he comes across.

      He graduated highschool, but dropped out of college.

    Well I’m sure her traveling around the world up until last month was a contributing factor on her complications. Every thought she slowly down and that brings issues

  39. Ginger says:

    My son was born at 29 weeks, 21/2 pounds. He came home from the NICU 2 mos later only when he was 5 lbs and drinking from a bottle ( I couldn’t breast feed from complications) he slept nearly all the time for a long while. It took a good 2 months for me to fatten him up. so judging from my experience they may wait a bit. I’m not holding my breath with these two however!

    This poor baby girl. She’ll never have a chance.

  41. Mia says:

    Good god, arrogance and egotism doesn’t begin to describe how full of himself Kanye is. Smh. Anyway, I’m wondering why Kim ended up delivering so early. She just looked so extremely bloated for the entire pregnancy. Like more bloated then I’ve seen a lot of pregnant women look. I wonder if she had some medical issue that caused labor to begin 5 weeks early.

    My second hub was small (and full term) and I can tell you she wasn’t pretty, the normal sized babies looked so much better. A few weeks in the work and Nori will get a bit bigger, less mini ape looking and better for photography.

  43. aurelia says:

    My son was born 5 weeks early and 5 pounds and 13 oz. Why are people saying kims baby is “small”. I was told our baby was actually on the larger size for being born at 35 weeks.

  44. jwoolman says:

    I hope they wait a few months before subjecting poor little Ka-Ching! to a professional photo shoot. Even better, a few years. 21 years would be nice… They should at least wait until they’ve had time to reconsider inflicting her with that terribly laughable name. If they like the name Nori, that’s what they should put on the birth certificate. Yes, there will be a few seaweed jokes and in some regions a few allusions to a nor’wester, but in English Nori West sounds nice and she won’t be followed by uncontrollable laughter every time she or anyone else says her name. Then they can always tell Nori the funny story about how they almost named her North, and earn her undying gratitude that they didn’t.

    I still wonder if there’s something wrong with Kim or the baby. Silence is so unnatural for the K Klan. I don’t really believe all the “over the moon” and “loves breast feeding and changing diapers” stuff Mama Ten Percent is feeding the tabloids. I wonder if Kim is having big-time trouble with post-partum depression. She certainly wasn’t any more excited about the baby during pregnancy than if she were just expecting to get a new Barbie doll. I know Mother Nature provides biochemical bonding help that can turn things around, but that’s not always enough. Would reputable doctors really perform plastic surgery so close to a difficult birth? Or any birth, for that matter.

  45. premature mama says:

    I have a theory about the whole 3 weeks/5 weeks thing. I think the baby was 5 or 5.5 weeks early. The size would fit with a 34.5 or 35 week baby.
    Babies are *technically* full term at 38 weeks and many doctors will do a c-section or induce at that point. So, they can say the baby is 3 weeks early if the doctor was looking at 38 weeks to delivery, Kimye logic says she’s 3 weeks earlier than that.
    See, publicity save.

  46. Jillia says:

    um idk how much I believe the baby was 5 (or 3 due to conflicting stories) was 4 something pounds. That is very tiny. I was 7 weeks early and 4 pounds. but everyone is different…

  47. Andrea says:

    A funny thing about hair…it can change as a kid gets older. I was born with a head full of curly hair, its now only kind of wavy. My brother was born white blond, now brown. Etc etc.

  48. Dommy Dearest says:

    I really really hate that I have doubts that the child is that small. I have doubts that she came early, I think Kim’s due date was actually around the time she gave birth. I think saying the child was/is so small that it’s Kris’ way of stalling for time until she can sell a candid to the tabloids because I can see Kanye releasing the picture on twitter or something close.

    I think the child is healthy as they’ve all claimed. That child’s lungs wouldn’t have been fully developed when she gave birth. BUT that comes from experience with my sister-in-law giving birth five weeks early, so who is to say as I’m sure someone will debate that that little issue.

    Kim and her family lack credibility and all I see is the family trying to grab up as many news stories as they can before the Royal child is born.

    They kid was born rectally, not vaginally…so, a shit head from birth? Based on the parents – yes.
