Kim Kardashian will celebrate her pregnancy with a baby shower ahead of her looming due date, a new report claims.
The reality TV star, who is seven months along in her pregnancy, recently turned to her longtime family friend, Sharon Sacks, who will plan the event, which is reportedly scheduled for June 2 in Los Angeles. Sacks previously planned Kardashian's 2011 nuptials to NBA star Kris Humphries.
"Sharon is excited to be planning the baby shower for Kim," a source confirms to Life & Style, "Kanye [West] is confirmed to attend the shower."
On Mother's Day, Kardashian opened up about preparing to become a mother, revealing that she is looking forward to having her first child.
"As I'm counting the days until I finally get to be a mother, I'm a bit nervous and anxious but also excited knowing that I learned from the very best," Kardashian wrote on her personal website.
"My sister, best friend, and mentor has also taught me so much about motherhood ... I am so lucky to have her as my guide and confidant as I too become a mother," she added.
While Kardashian appears to be happy about becoming a mother, close friends reportedly fear that her relationship with West, 35, may be in turmoil. Reports claim the rapper's alleged need to control the relationship could ultimately push the reality TV star away.
"The only way they have a future is if Kim continues to do whatever he says," an alleged family friend told NaughtyButNiceRob.com.
West has been living in Paris since February, where he has been recording his sixth studio album while Kardashian has remained in Los Angeles. They have reportedly spent less than 30 days together since the reality star confirmed her pregnancy, with sources claiming she initiates most of their contact.
"We just do not understand why she is traveling to Paris to see him. She is the pregnant one. Kanye will fly in to see the editors of Vogue but he won't fly in to see the lady carrying his child," the source vented.
"Some of the greatest records that have ever been recorded have been recorded in America. I am sorry that the US recording studios are not good enough for Kanye- they were good enough for Elvis, Sinatra and Michael Jackson, but not Kanye!" the source added.
