Kim Kardashian West and her famous husband, Kanye West, only implanted male embryos. I didn't even know that was a possibility. Seriously, I had to Google it. I guess I'm behind on designer family planning practices.
But, according to a source close to the couple and confirmed to Us Weekly, "she only had boy embryos implanted" in a procedure that runs about $17,000, where a doctor isolated the male fertilized embryos and implanted them into the uterus.
The source continued, "Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family. Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir."
According to this source, they said Kim always wanted two kids, a boy and a girl.
Well, it looks like they are getting their wish. Or what they paid for?
Don't mistake my cynicism for criticism. I just don't know how I feel yet about being able to choose the sex of your baby. Honestly, I just don't know. And the whole "wanting an heir" business... just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. And these aren't direct quotes either, so he might not have actually said it that particular way.
This same source said, "Kim would have happily taken a healthy baby, but being able to choose the sex is the cherry on top!"
It has been a long, difficult and public road for Kardashian to have her second baby. Remember those comments about having sex 500 times a day? Yeah, how could you forget? And we are thrilled the clearly happy couple are getting their wish, but I need to do a little more soul-searching before choosing the sex of a baby sits well with me.
