Kim Kardashian’s labor was reportedly the worst ordeal of her life.
Warned by doctors that she was most likely suffering from the life-threatening condition preeclampsia, Kim Kardashian was forced to deal with going into premature labor on Friday night to save the life of her baby girl.
With her “blood pressure skyrocketing” and “the baby in distress” according to Us Weekly, the pampered doyenne of reality TV was forced to grit her teeth and get on with the delivery.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was so brave in dealing with the terrifying ordeal that her often absent beau, Kanye West, 36, is now desperate to marry her as soon as possible.
“They’ll start planning their next project, a wedding, sooner rather than later,” a source told People magazine.
“He definitely wants to marry her, he hasn’t left her side.”
Kim Kardashian’s friend Robin Antin, with whom she spent the last few days of her pregnancy relaxing in the sunshine, offered an insight into how Kim’s stoic and tenacious behavior this weekend impressed the often lugubrious rapper.
“This was a lot to go through,” the founder of music group GRL told the magazine.
“I’m sure she was exhausted but she handled it like a pro.”
Doctors have warned Kim Kardashian – who is desperate to start exercising in order to get her body back into shape – that she needs to watch her blood pressure as hypertension can be a real issue after these kinds of emergencies.
A source told Us Weekly: “After discharge she should follow up with blood pressure checks. The condition can cause problems after birth.”
However, Kanye West will be by Kim Kardashian’s side constantly from now on to monitor the health of his partner and their baby: “For the next two weeks, Kim wants Kanye around 24/7,” the mole continued.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will also employ the services of a nurse for a year, according to Us Weekly who report that the helper will wear “a custom-made black-and-white uniform”.
“Kim is a bit freaked out, but the baby’s breathing is fine,” the magazine continued.
Kabye West made sure he was front and centre for the birth of his first child.
The rapper had been scheduled to make an appearance at a release party in Los Angeles for his new album Yeezus, which is due out on Tuesday.
But Kim Kardashian had started feeling ill Friday and, after having contractions, admitted herself to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center near Beverly Hills five weeks ahead of her scheduled due date, causing Kanye West to skip out on his own party.
