Just when I thought I couldn’t feel sorrier for Kim Kardashian and her unborn K-baby, now I’m hearing that apparently Kanye West won’t even be present in the delivery room? I feel like we’re getting pretty heavily into ‘caricature of a guy who has no interest in his baby’ at this point, and I’m worried it might not be reading to the audience. It’s just that it’s unbelievable to me that anyone hates their kid so much that they’ve spent most of its happy uterus fun time across the globe in Paris, gone icognito at its baby shower, and is now planning in advance how to attend its birth while not actually attending its birth. It’s unrealistic, Kanye. You need to write yourself a better character, because surely no one is this shady. A source close to the couple says:
“He won’t physically be in the delivery room. He’s very squeamish and doesn’t want to be around blood.”
No. No no no no no, I reject. That is not a good enough reason not to be present for the birth of your first child! You need to pull it together, buddy. You know what Kim is squeamish about? Being pregnant. She’s made that incredibly clear. And I doubt she’s very much looking forward to the giving birth part, but she doesn’t have much choice about being there for it, so you shouldn’t either!
Remind me, though, how does Kanye know this baby? Did they collaborate together on a track? Or maybe they met on the set of Saturday Night Live? I can’t remember. Oh wait, you’re telling me they’ve never even met? Well maybe it’s okay if he skips out on that silly old birth thing, then. Let’s not be ridiculous.
