Recently, Kim’s reality television star pal Jennifer Dalton revealed she had helped her through the pregnancy with tons of personal assistance.
“I’ve been helping her with everything — anything that she needs I’m there. I go with her to the doctor’s appointments, the ultrasounds,” the entertainer’s best friend of 20 years Jennifer Dalton tells Us Weekly. “If she has cravings, we go get it for her — certain things that she just wants and needs, I’ll help her go get it.” Among those cravings, Dalton says, are veggie pizza, steak, fruits, and veggies. “I have to give her all these pillows. She tucks herself in between them… She has 2 behind her head, one by her chest, one between her legs, two on her back — she’s just cuddled in between pillows. All you see is little Lil’ Kim in the fetal position with pillows everywhere. It’s very cute!” (Us Magazine)
Back in February rapper Mr. Papers appeared to take responsibility for Kim’s child.
Shortly after Kim’s pregnancy made headlines, Mr. Papers posted a snap of himself on the photo-sharing site. “I heard everybody looking for me?????????????????” he wrote. Calling himself “Daddy” on Twitter, the New York-based rapper also retweeted news about Kim’s pregnancy as well as congratulatory messages. “Congratz on the royal baby!” a tweet read, to which he answered, “Royal is a good name for the lil homie.” He also thanked another person who congratulated him on the baby news.
