Let the parenting battles begin! As pregnant Kim Kardashian’s July due date creeps closer, it seems strong-willed Kim and father-to-be Kanye West aren't seeing eye-to-eye on some very big decisions.
In fact, Life & Style has learned that the two have been bickering over the biggest decision yet: trying for a natural delivery, or to schedule an elective C-section.
Kanye West Choosing Friends Over Pregnant Kim Kardashian
“Kim told friends that doctors warned her she was likely to need a C-section,” a close pal of the reality star tells the new issue of Life & Style. “She can technically still have a natural birth, but they told her the baby was large and sitting in a way that applied pressure.”
Although sources say her sights are set on surgery — "telling her girlfriends at her June 2 baby shower that she is petrified about giving birth and would do anything for it not to hurt” — insiders are telling Life & Style that’s sparked a battle with the father of her unborn child.
“While Kim’s told Kanye that a C-section is what she wants, he’d prefer she did not have one,” says the pal. “He wants an all-natural birth. But Kim feels it’s her right to choose.”
