Kanye West Is Ready to Welcome His Son, Says Baby Can Come ‘Any Day Now’

Kim Kardashian West may be a couple weeks out from her due date, but baby boy West could come sooner than expected — and dad Kanye West is ready for his arrival.

“I’m waiting on my son to arrive any day now. I look at my daughter and I look at my wife and she’s rich and I don’t plan on being broke,” he joked during his acceptance speech for Shoe of the Year at the Footwear News 29th Annual Achievement Awards on Wednesday night.

While West, 38, may be excited to welcome the couple’s second child, Kardashian West, 35, has admitted that she’s anxious about childbirth, especially after learning that the baby was breech.

In a blog post shared on her website just before Thanksgiving, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star discussed all she had been doing to turn the baby before her due date.

Kardashian West said she had been trying yoga, icing her belly and even laying upside down for 15 minutes per day, but ultimately resorted to having an external cephalic version.

Although the mom-to-be described the procedure as “probably more painful than childbirth,” she also said that it worked — the baby is now in the right position for delivery.

“They don’t give you any medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth,” she wrote. “BUT it worked!!!”

Thank God I/they don’t have to worry about money, … said every pregnant couple ‘worrying’ about a child! After all it takes a village to raise a child – why not but it? At least he can provide shoes for both children!

WOW Kim’s calf is BIGGER than Kanye’s thigh.

Kim is a drama queen & sure hope this is the last one. We don’t want to suffer thru her pregnancy wardrobe parade, swollen ankles like footballs cuz she prefers gladiator pumps! Name this one Southwest & start another airline!

Two things strike me…it is as though she thinks she is the only woman to ever give birth, and this pregnancy seems to have lasted YEARS!!! I mean we are talking elephant gestation, here! I believe she may have been pregnant for at least the last 3 years…or at least it feels like it.

Kanye and Kim need to disappear. Kim is being a little redic. I’m sure having the baby turned was painful, but unless you have given birth without loading yourself up on meds, you can’t say its more painful than birth. Birth without drugs HURTS. Worst pain in the world.

Yes I know he was joking, but it’s still a stupid comment nonetheless.

One day she’s due in November, then she’s due on 25 December now she’s due any day. Interesting she has no clue when she’s due…

omg, this guy is the world’s biggest T U R D. everything that comes out of his mouth is just a bunch of sh@t that makes no sense whatsoever.
despite how i feel about them as human beings, i hope they have a healthy baby for someone else to take care of and raise, just like their daughter.

Funny that Kanye really knows how to make joke: “I’m waiting on my son to arrive any day now and I look at my daughter and I look at my wife and she’s rich and I don’t plan on being broke”. Kudo to him!
