Did you know that right now, in 2015, if you have enough money, you can choose whether you have a boy child or a girl child? It’s true, apparently, and Kanye Kardashian and Kim West reportedly did it to ensure their new baby is a boy.
According to an Us Weekly source, Kim “underwent an IVF gender-selection process”—a pricey procedure during which doctors transfer only the fertilized embryos of the chosen sex to the uterus— this past spring. “She only had boy embryos implanted,” says a source, in order to ensure her new North is something more like a new Borth (boy North):
“Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family,” says another source of the parents of daughter North, 2. “Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir,” says a source close to West.
The source assures Us Weekly that it wasn’t all Kanye’s decision, adding, in a way that sounds like an eerie Twilight Zone coda, though I’m not sure what the episode would be about: “Kim always wanted two kids. A girl and a boy.”
Congrats to the couple on their new purchase.
