Kimberly Stewart wants a “romantic relationship” with baby-daddy Benicio del Toro


Back in July, when Kimberly Stewart was in the home-stretch of her pregnancy with baby daughter Delilah, we had some new photos of Kimbo’s bump and I expressed my interest in how low-key Kimbo was playing her pregnancy. After all, she got knocked up by an Oscar-winning actor who some women get damp for. Kimbo doesn’t really have a job, a career, or anything to do with her time. And yet, Kimberly didn’t famewhore her bump out, only getting pap’d a handful of times and not issuing any direct statements to the press. It was very interesting. Some of you suggested that Kimberly was playing by Benicio’s rules – that if he was going to pay up in child support, he wanted his baby-mama to keep as quiet as possible. You may have been right, partially. Radar has a new report suggesting that Kimberly really wants to have a relationship with her baby-daddy – which means that she was keeping it low-key because she’s in love with him (I think).

Kimberly Stewart is thrilled to be a new mother, but has exclusively learned the rocker’s daughter still wishes it had worked out with baby daddy, Benico del Toro.

The 32-year-old’s pregnancy shocked the public — and the couple who the insider says only hooked up for a month, casually, before getting pregnant.

“Kim and Benicio still see each other and talk for the sake of the baby, but it’s not romantic and Kim wishes it were,” the source told

“They weren’t really ever dating to begin with, just sort of hooking up for a month, then boom — she was pregnant.”

According to the source, Kimberly is a wonderful mother to baby Delilah, who was born in Los Angeles on August 21.

“It was a tough birth for Kim, but she’s a tough cookie,” the source said.

“I think having any more children is the last thing on her mind right now!”

As for Kimberly’s famous dad, Rod Stewart, the source said he couldn’t be more excited about the new addition to their family.

“I’m really happy and thrilled for them both. Kimberly is delighted!” her mother, Alana Stewart, told when she found out about the pregnancy.

Delilah is the first child for both the Oscar-winning actor Benicio and for Kimberly.

[From Radar]

During her pregnancy, there were a few reports about Benicio being “not happy” regarding the unplanned pregnancy, but at the end of the day, he’s acknowledging the kid, he was there for the birth, and he’s probably providing a wad of cash too. I think it’s nice to see both Benicio and Kimberly step up and be adults about the situation, but if this is all part of some plot Kimberly has hatched to win Benicio’s love… well, I feel bad for her. He’s not going to give it to her, I don’t think.

    What’s up with her eyes in that last pic?

  2. brin says:

    I feel bad for her, too. It must suck to have just given birth to your baby and know the father has no interest in a relationship with you. She’s handled herself really well and I wish her the best.

  3. mln76 says:

    She handled the whole thing much better than one would expect given her reality show, wannabe fameho past, I feel a bit bad for her but you can’t trap a man with a baby. She should cut her losses and concentrate on her kid.

  4. constance says:

    If she didn’t want to have kids, I’m sure Beni already asked her about a termination. However, I believe that she has no career, no real name-fame, and was fully prepared to pop a parasite out to stay relevant. So, congrats on the child support checks and name dropping your baby daddy ever time he gets a movie deal, Kimbo Slice.

    I’d really love to sit down at Beni’s table while he’s drunk, and let him tell me how he really feels about all of this. LOL

  5. jc126 says:

    That makes me feel really bad for her.

  6. Quest says:

    Kimberly shouldn’t really expect to have a stable relationship with Benicio since their relationship was based on a causual fling/booty call that got her knocked up.

    I think he have/would accept his responsiblity as a father in the long run but nothing more

  7. Jenny says:

    Don’t want to sound harsh, but shouldn’t the romantic relationship have come first? Grown ups have to realize that having unprotected sex sometimes leads to babies..they should have paid attention in high school biology. Don’t know their history, but hook-ups or short term get togethers does not mean love. Kind of silly to think that.

    Luckily this child is healthy and probably will have two caring parents, with Rod Stewart as a loving grandfather and it is a shame the parents don’t love each other, but sometimes it happens that way.

  8. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Child Support is mandatory. Any man who has a baby and they aren’t with the mother anymore is required to pay child support if the mother requests it. They will go so far to take the money out of the man’s paycheck every month if necessary. Not that Kim needs him to pay but there is nothing keeping Kim from getting child support from him if need be. Unless he can weasel out of it and alot do.

    That made my skin crawl when you suggested Kim was quiet so he would pay child support. Like what man would say some sh*t like that to a woman carrying his baby? If he ever said anything like that I wouldn’t like him at all.

  9. dorothy says:

    I personally believe the pregnancy was on purpose on her part. I think she was trying to score herself an Oscar winner. Not like she’s busy doing ANYTHING. Well, she certainly will be now..that is if rocker-dad doesn’t hire and pay for a nanny for her.

  10. madpoe says:

    “According to the source, Kimberly is a wonderful mother to baby Delilah, who was born in Los Angeles on August 21.” – its been 4 days on my calendar, is this an instant ability for new moms or does it take some time to become a “wonderful mother”? Clearly not a mom myself, but how does one know they’re a wonderful mom when you’re still learning with your first born? or is that just something nice to say with first time moms?

    I’d be surprised if Bencio puts a ring on it.

  11. Bubulle says:

    She knew from the begining their relationship was not serious and next thing you know she got pregnant with his baby. I wouldn’t be surpised if she did it on purpose. She had it coming.

  12. lucy2 says:

    I thought the same madpoe – 4 days and she’s a “wonderful mother” already?
    She may want more, but I get the impression that if she hadn’t gotten pregnant, he wouldn’t even remember her name.

  13. Pyewacket says:

    She is a wonderful mother?! What, after 4 days?

  14. says:

    I think less of him ever since he hooked up with Kimberly. Is that really the best he could get?

  15. Juliesunflower says:

    Benicio pay child support AND scram! Kim has the personality of a door bell.

  16. Ally says:

    Google “benicio del toro” and “magnum”. He does elaborate commercials for ice cream bars in Europe. Cheesy!

    His career is fifteen minutes past on the decline.

    @Bubulle: Thanks for checking in from the Victorian era!

  17. Bermuda Blues says:

    Delilah & Kim have the same birthday. That’s cheeky.

    Hollywood is VD land. Who has a ‘casual’ month long fling and doesn’t use a condom? Foul.

  18. curleque says:

    These grown-a** adults who were DATING FOR A MONTH never heard of birth control?

  19. anon says:

    @madpoe: “its been 4 days on my calendar, is this an instant ability for new moms or does it take some time to become a “wonderful mother”?
    I am a mom and thought the same thing

  20. Lila says:

    Meh. He looks like he could use a good shower. With bleach. And she has crazy eyes. Hopefully her baby inherits the best in both their genes.

    Doubt the coupling thing is going to happen. Casual hookup turned baby mama turned true love is more a hollywood trope than any kind of real possibility

  21. Ellie says:

    Like, what in the world does this chick do??? Nothing. A trust fund baby. Plus, you couldn’t pay me to sleep with that guy. He’s gross, creepy and disgusting looking. A great actor, but not worthy of sleeping with him. Of course she wants to sleep with someone famous, have their kid so she’ll be relevent for something.

  22. Jojo says:

    Here’s a tip guys: NEVER have unprotected sex with a woman who has nothing to lose when you have money/power/stature or anything else she wishes she had. Stupid.

  23. Violet says:

    If Kimberly got pregnant on purpose in the hopes he would fall in love with her, shame on her. If she got pregnant by accident and has since fallen in love with Benicio, I feel bad for her because it’s pretty obvious that he’s not in love with her.

    At least he’s stepping up to responsibilities as a father. He’s acknowledged paternity from the start and it’s great that he showed up for the birth.

  24. Net says:

    Im so disappointed in him..I mean he is sex on a stick-panty droppin hot..then he pulls this irresponsible shit..with THAT??? I mean come freakin on….at least it could have been an attractive twit..sheesh..

  25. TXCinderella says:

    I give it a few months and I bet Kim will be leaving the kid with her parents to watch while she goes out. Kim is a HW party girl and nothing more.

  26. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    This guy won an Oscar?

  27. John Wayne Lives says:

    Maybe there was more to this relationship. Maybe there is more to Kimberly. Who knows.
    But I think its sad.

  28. Angelina says:

    The only female Benicio will ever commit to will be his daughter. He has made it very clear about a thousand times in the past that he finds it difficult to commit to one woman and that he will never marry.

    I feel bad for her but she must have known this from the beginning that it was purely sex for him

  29. MaiGirl says:

    I’m with all the poster confused about the lack of condom use. I CANNOT even IMAGINE not using condoms with a casual partner. I couldn’t even enjoy it because I would be terrified of catching cooties. Also, no man has a right to be upset about a pregnancy from a casual relationship if he didn’t wrap it up.

  30. rose80 says:

    these are two irresponsible ADULTS. I don’t pity either one. Both could have used some form of protection and BOTH chose not to.

    Kaiser, I have to politely disagree with your assessment about the child support. He was proven to be the father. If he chooses not to be supportive the court will make him. He can’t strong arm Kim into keeping quiet about anything. It’s a baby not a contract, and don’t think he’s the type of man to even say something like that.

  31. bitchbelying says:

    That baby will grow up to learn, she was a huge accident. Man, these two just seem like polar opposites.

  32. mzjask says:

    i love this man more seeing as how he is not shying away from this situation that they both got themselves into- guys, its a baby they’ve made its a beautiful thing. no matter how Strange the rest of us think the sex probably was, lol.
    im sure there is some truth to this story, who wouldnt want Benicio??? i feel kinda bad tho [im not sure why. she has a baby by a friggin oscar winner. and rod stewart for a father] it just seems like shes been unlucky in love and she seems like a nice person. i just dont think my Beni is gonna trail off on that road any time soon.

    either way, she’s got one over the rest of us! Beni, nooooooooooooooooo!!!!! haha

  33. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t know what the word is at all of the other drunk tables, but I’d wager that he wouldn’t have the nicest of things to say about having had his infant daughter condemned as a ‘parasite’.

  34. hatsumomo says:

    Jojo: if that’s the case then wealthy men wouldnt be having sex at all!

    And Im laughing at this chick. What a loser. Fools Rush In was a fictional movie.

  35. anne_000 says:

    If Benicio didn’t want babies w/ women he’s having a short tryst with, then he should have worn condoms or gotten a vasectomy.

    I don’t feel sorry for Kimberly, since she chose to have a baby with a man who doesn’t seem to want to be in a relationship with her. If she thought this was one way to hold onto a man, then I hope she learns soon that it isn’t, or she’ll be one of those women who keep having kids w/ celebrities just to see if one of them will finally marry her.

  36. Iheartlasagne says:

    She looks quite pretty in the header pic, for a change. Also, I’ve personally known several people who got pregnant while on birth control (obviously I can’t prove it but I believe them), just sayin’.

  37. Nev says:

    these comments are such huge assumptions…how do we know they dont believe in marriage or that they may even dislike one another?….geez.

  38. AM says:

    @Nev – In BDT’s statement he didn’t mention KS as his ex-girlfriend just said we are not a couple isn’t that telling you something also he said he was “supportive” why not use “delighted or happy”. Of course she planned this if it wasn’t with BDT it would’ve been someone else. She’s not going to have a kid with average Joe. I have no sympathy for her whatsoever only for Delilah. If you’ve read BDT’s interviews he has no interest in marriage or kids. He doesn’t want his cave invaded. KS must of known this but as she’s talentless she decided to get knocked to keep her relevant. Yes BDT is also too blame if you don’t want kids have a vasectomy but I guess it makes him feel less of a man.

  39. jay says:

    He should’ve slept with a hooker,less grief and definitely less expensive lol

  40. Narla says:

    Looking for love in the wrong place eh Kimbo – what an idiot. It seems Benicio was at the birth of Delilah according to an Radio interview Rod has given he says of Benicio “We gave each other big hugs . . . he’s a lovely guy.” However It seems strange that Benicio has not come out with a statement very very odd…
