Why did Kanye really want a baby boy? For exactly the reason you think

Kim and Kanye are having a boy because they choose to.

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.

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.

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.
