Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly eager to have a water birth when her daughter is delivered in coming weeks and her mother, Kris Jenner, is reportedly eager to have the entire experience filmed for the family's E! reality TV show.
Despite reports that the 32-year-old had already given birth on June 15 following a cryptic tweet that she posted on Twitter referencing "a water birth," the reality star is still pregnant and is considering trying an alternative birthing method, according to Hollywood Life.
"Kourtney wants to experience a natural birth with her second child. She has been taking pre-natal yoga classes and has been learning all about the benefits of having a home birth and water birth," a family friend reportedly told HL.
Kardashian and her rumored fiancé Scott Disick welcomed their first child, 2-year-old Mason Dash Disick, on December 14, 2009, and the birth was featured on a special episode of the hit reality TV show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
"With Mason, [Kourtney] didn't know what to expect and felt more comfortable having a traditional birth," the insider said.
"Now she feels a lot more confident and feels a natural water birth would be one of the most empowering and magical experiences in her life," the source added.
Jenner, 56, who recently denied that she exploits her family during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, is reportedly pushing for Kardashian to have a water birth because it would boost ratings.
"Of course Kris thinks it would make for great TV and wants the entire birth to be filmed. If all goes planned, it would air on the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the source said.
The entire Kardashian clan is expected to be in the delivery room when Kardashian goes in to labor, as they were for the birth of Mason.
"Kourtney wants everyone to be at her daughter's birth, and of course big brother Mason!" the source said.
