Kim Kardashian is due to give birth to her first child in July. The reality TV star along with her baby's father Kanye West will reportedly take extra security precaution on the day.
The couple, who announced the pregnancy news in December, is expected to take extreme measures to protect their privacy when Kardashian goes in to labor. In January 2012, Beyonce, who is a good friend of West's, spent in excess of $1.3 million for tight security at Lenox Hill hospital when she gave birth to her and Jay-Z's first child. Kardashian, 32, will reportedly follow suit.
"They definitely want their s--- to be on lock and don't want nosy a-- people all up in they stuff," a source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com. "
Various reports stated that the Beyonce, 31, and Jay-Z, 42, paid the substantial sum to rent out an entire wing at the private New York hospital, which ultimately inconvenienced other patients. The couple reportedly hired an overzealous team of bodyguards and demanded that security cameras were taped over- something fans anticipate Kardashian and West will do as well.
"It's going to be like Fort Knox at whatever hospital they deliver at," the source said, referring to the U.S. Army Post.
West, 35, is said to be attending to Kardashian's every need in the months leading up to the baby's birth to ensure both her and their fetus' well-being.
"All [he's] doing now is just making sure Kim and the baby are healthy and that she's getting rest and food and exercise," the source says.
The news follows reports that the couple is expecting baby girl. While they are yet to confirm the news, a source claims the pair is thrilled.
"They're over the moon!" a source told Us magazine. "Kanye always wanted a girl."
