This week, Kim Kardashian announced she and her husband Kanye West are expecting their second child. It was big news for less than a half a day when it was overshadowed by her step dad Bruce reveal in Vanity Fair magazine of his new transgender identity as Caitlyn Jenner.
Throughout all the amplified media attention over that news, Kardashian is dealing with severe morning sickness, USA Today reports . She appeared cool and collected rocking a black sheer and stud embellished Proenza Schouler dress with her hubby on the red carpet to Monday night’s CDFA Awards at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 1, 2015 in New York City.
In fact, the road to pregnancy and all involved with the state of pregnancy has been rocky for Kardashian. The reality TV star battled harsh criticism over her weight gain and choice of maternity wear for the last pregnancy, then by its end she developed preeclamsia-triggered extreme high blood pressure. She had to have an emergency pre-term c-section caused by complications from that condition, and another problem with her uterine lining.
Then, on her journey to expand her family, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast member stumbled upon complications and experienced infertility for eight months before becoming successful with the help of in vitro fertiliztion. A source to PEOPLE magazine reported that the business mogul had to repair the lining of her uterus which was the source of a lot of her complications to conceive.
One has to just chuckle about the amount of reporting on one woman’s reproductive organs. Phew!
The family, which includes almost 2-year old Nori West, will welcome the new addition this December.
And of course, as could be expected, the comments and tweets came flowing in joking that this baby will be named, South West.
