Kim Kardashian accidentally reveals the gender of her baby on 'Ellen'
Due to the amount of hype and intrigue surrounding the pregnancy of her younger sister, it can be easy to forget that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are also expecting a third child. The 37-year-old reality star appeared on the Ellen Show to talk about her baby shower and her experiences of using a surrogate to have her third child, and she inadvertently revealed the gender of the baby.
Speaking on the show, Kim was telling the story of her baby shower that she threw over the weekend - which she says was mainly for the benefit of her four-year-old daughter North West - when she accidentally let slip what gender the latest Kardashian would be.
"I thought I really do want to have a baby shower, because I want her to feel that something's coming, and for her to really understand it," she said.
"So people brought toys and gifts, and she was opening them all up the next day and she said: 'mom, you know since baby sister is not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room, and I'll play with them and make sure they are all okay for baby sister.'"
Realising the Kim had just given her a major scoop, a grinning Ellen replied: "She's a toy tester... and you just told us it's a girl."
Rather than trying to cover her tracks, Kim smiled and confirmed that a little girl was on her way. The mother of two added that "North is really excited about that", but also said it had been "a little trickier" to convince Saint, her son, that a baby sister would be a good thing.
As with all big celebrity baby stories, one of the most talked about subjects regarding Kim's new child, has been surrounding what she will name the baby. Kim revealed that the couple had been struggling to come up with a name for the child, and said that a name suggesting game at the baby shower had also failed to produce anything of note.
Luckily for Kim, Ellen offered the use of her baby name generator, which came up with Lip Kit West, Pop West and West West - all of which it wouldn't be surprising if Kim actually used. When Star West came up, Kim said that North had suggested the same name, but that she "was not vibing on it."
"I do like different names, but short, easy to spell, one syllable," she said. "That's kind of my vibe."
Of course, Ellen was also quick to ask the question which has been bugging the world for months: Is Kylie Jenner pregnant? But Kim remained tight lipped, saying that the family have a pact to not talk about each other.
So there we have it folks: Kim is having a daughter. Now all we need is for Kylie to slip up and reveal what is going on with her, then the world will be at peace once more.
