What A-list actor broke things off with his much-younger girlfriend after she became pregnant but didnâ€™t keep the baby for fear it would derail her budding acting career?
Over the past few months, Kim Kardashian has been refreshingly candid about the often unglamorous realities of carrying a child. For example, while many women especially celebrities claim to love being pregnant, Kim has cheerfully confessed that sheâ€™s hated every minute of incubating another human being, adding that itâ€™s been â€œthe worst experience of [her] life.â€
But fans were nevertheless shocked when the 35-year-old recently admitted that sheâ€™s at risk for two very serious pregnancy complications, preeclampsia and placenta accreta, both of which threaten her health as well as the babyâ€™s. A source close to Kim says that the disclosure may have been prompted by a recent middle-of-the-night trip to the emergency room: â€œShe was rushed to the hospital in excruciating pain around two in the morning,â€ the source reports. â€œEverything turned out OK, but it was very scary.â€
Now, the source says, â€œKimâ€™s panicking. Every day she finds something else to worry about. Sheâ€™s driving herself and [her husband]
Kanye [West] crazy.â€ While sheâ€™s not due until Dec. 25, itâ€™s looking increasingly unlikely that sheâ€™ll be able to carry the baby to term; North was delivered more than five weeks early because Kim developed preeclampsia (which some doctors think may be
North West, 2, has had a good run as the center of the Kardashian/West universe, but sheâ€™s about to have some serious competition. Will her new baby brother be able to top the incredible cuteness of Nori: (1) grumpily attending a Givenchy show in 2014; (2) lighting candles in Armenia last April; (3) chilling on a yacht in St. Barts in August; (4) hanging with Anna Wintour in September; (5) partying at Momâ€™s baby shower; (6) showing off one of her many Balmain-jacket-and-tutu ensembles in October; or (7) celebrating Halloween as Elsa from Frozen? Weâ€™ll see! signaled by severe weight gain). And Kimâ€™s doctor has recommended a C-section because placenta accreta a condition in which the placenta doesnâ€™t detach from the uterus postbirth could cause Kim to bleed to death if it isnâ€™t dealt with promptly (a situation that could even require an emergency hysterectomy). However, Kanye is pushing Kim to â€œhang onâ€ for as long as possible, the source says, â€œbecause heâ€™s really into the idea of a Christmas babyâ€
Of course, all this drama is good for ratings, and the source says that Kimâ€™s mother, Kris Jenner, is eager to get it all on film for the familyâ€™s reality show. But about that, at least, Kanye is being reasonable and firmly putting his foot down. â€œHeâ€™s told Kris that thereâ€™s no chance of having cameras in the delivery room this time, but sheâ€™s refusing to take no for an answer,â€ the source says. â€œPoor Kim feels caught in the middle.â€ Not helping the situation is that fact that her sisters would also like to be in the room for the birth. â€œKim is overwhelmed,â€ the source says. â€œThe whole thing is turning into a circus.â€
Given everything thatâ€™s going on, itâ€™s no wonder that Kim is at the end of her rope and just wants the pregnancy to be over. â€œHaving this child means the world to her,â€ the source says, â€œbut sheâ€™s so terrified that thereâ€™s nothing anyone can say or do to calm her down. She wonâ€™t feel better until the baby is safely in her arms.â€
