Reality star Kim Kardashian and father-to-be Kanye West can keep their checkbooks at home as new reports claim the couple have received an unexpected gift courtesy of a local Hollywood baby shop.
According to reports, KimYe have $1,000 on the house waiting to get cashed-in at Bel Bambini.
Kim Kardashian might be the last person on the planet who needs free baby stuff … but that’s not stopping one primo baby boutique from scheming to get its goods in her famous hands. A rep from Bel Bambini — a celeb-magnet baby shop in West Hollywood — tells TMZ, the store sent Kim a gift card for $1,000 the second they heard she was knocked up. Not only that, BB — who did the registries for Kourtney Kardashian’s spawn as well — says it’ll be giving Kim even more baby goods to outfit her nursery … just like it did for Kate Middleton’s fetus.

In addition to the free baby supplies, reports claim Kanye and Kim could even make some big bucks by selling their newborn baby photos.
And while Kanye and Kim could make a killing by going to a magazine with their baby pictures first, some lucky paparazzo might also be able to land themselves an early retirement if they get the highly coveted first picture. One photo agency expert tells RumorFix a photog could bank $100,000 in a second off Kimye’s baby. And a Pacific Coast News photo editor seconds that notion, but says it’s unlikely, “Knowing those two, they probably will not leave the house. They’ll for sure do studio shots of the baby.” Still, another magazine industry insider tells RumorFix $1 million “is like nothing to Kanye and Kim.” And adds that Kanye might not sell the pics because he’ll want to keep his child’s life private in the same way his friends Jay-Z and Beyonce have managed to do with their daughter, Blue Ivy.

The world may get a close glimpse of KimYe’s newborn as talks of a reality show have already started to rumble.
Reality superstar Kim Kardashian is expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West — he made the surprise announcement during a Dec. 30 concert in Atlantic City — and plans to document her journey on the network. “Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting,” E! president Suzanne Kolb tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. “Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
Kanye broke the news of his girlfriend’s pregnancy status less than a week ago.
The rapper announced at a concert Sunday night that his girlfriend is pregnant. He told the crowd of more than 5,000 at Revel Resort’s Ovation Hall in song form: “Now you having my baby.” The crowd roared. And so did people on the Internet. The news instantly went viral on Twitter and Facebook, with thousands posting and commenting on the expecting couple. (CBS News)
