If the amount of gossip written about you is an indication of your popularity, then Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are flying high.
The couple has been grabbing headlines ever since announcing on December 30 that they are expecting their first child, and rumors about their relationship and future are in overdrive. Kardashian, who is still legally married to her estranged husband Kris Humphries, is said to be "furious" over his refusal to grant her a divorce and will likely still be married to him when she gives birth in the summer.
Meanwhile, RadarOnline.com reports that Kim's momager Kris Jenner is trying hard to get her hooks into Kimye by attempting to convince the couple to buy a house close to the family compound in posh Hidden Hills, California. “Kris is desperate to be close to Kim during her pregnancy, so she hand-picked a property for her daughter and Kanye."
However, the Kardashian family matriarch may find Kanye harder to persuade than her other sons-in-law. A source claims Yeezy's simple reponse was, "over my dead body." The parents-to-be have reportedly bought an $11 million mansion in Bel Air, California, about an hour away from the Kardashian compound.
The rapper and his baby mama's mama do, however, agree on one thing: life insurance. Once again, RadarOnline.com reports that Jenner insisted Kanye take out a $10 million policy, naming Baby Kimye as the primary beneficiary and Kim as secondary. "Kanye is absolutely on board," a source reveals, adding, "Kanye is in perfect health but travels a lot and performs all over the world, sometimes in not so safe locales."
The expecting couple have also reportedly decided to take a vow of privacy when it comes to their baby, refusing six-figure offers for exclusive pictures and claiming Baby Kimye will not be a part of Kim's many reality shows. This goes against E! Network's statement that the channel "looks forward to sharing the joy" of Kim's pregnancy and birth on-camera.
Thankfully, the constant rumors and gossip can't seem to wipe the pregnancy glow from Kim's face. While she describes pregnancy as "difficult," Kardashian says she is "so happy" to be expecting her first child with her boyfriend of nearly one year.
