After the birth of the royal baby girl, Princess Charlotte, earlier this year, Americans are now welcoming our own type of royalty. On Dec. 5, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their second child, a son, whose most likely unique name we do not yet know. According to Kim's website, "Mother and son are doing well." Congrats! So far, on Season 10 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we have seen Kim's belly grow and her food cravings get stronger, but now that the child is actually born, I wonder if Kim and Kanye's baby boy's birth will be featured on KUWTK.
It certainly seems as if KUWTK is always filming. And questions of what should and shouldn't be filmed for the show recently came up regarding Lamar Odom and his hospitalization. Apparently, filming was delayed while Khloé Kardashian remained by Odom's side at the hospital, so the Kardashians do have a limit to what they want to show on television. Now that Kim has given welcomed her son, viewers are probably wondering if they'll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Baby #2's birth on the show. But it really doesn't seem likely based on the history of the show.
When North West was born, Kim and Kanye opted to not film the actual birth. It was revealed on the Oct. 27, 2013 episode that Kim was suffering from preeclampsia and needed to deliver North five weeks earlier than her due date. The KUWTK cameras were not allowed into the delivery room, but Kim instead filmed a sweet video on Khloé's phone to her daughter while she was waiting for Kanye to arrive, and this video was made part of the KUWTK episode.
The only other pregnant sibling has been Kourtney, and while the births of Mason and Penelope were shown on the show, she decided to keep things private with her third time around when baby Reign was born in December 2014. Could it be that the Kardashians are changing their tune on how much they want to show their kids? It took a while for North to appear on KUWTK, and reports came out early on that Kanye wanted to limit his daughter's exposure on the show and in the public eye.
Based on what we know from Kim's past birth, my guess would be that Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans will get a montage and homemade video for the second baby, but will not be in the delivery room like Kourtney allowed in the past. I respect that decision because the baby will inevitably be in the line of flashing lights, so he and his parents deserve the chance to share their first special moments privately.
