Ever since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hooked up back in the spring, the Kardashian-Jenners have been pushing the "Kimye marriage and babies" storyline to the press non-stop. The first report of the two moving in together surfaced just a month after they went public with their romance, and since then there have been almost weekly reports about a wedding or pregnancy, which hasn't happened. And now another tabloid is recycling the same old stories.
The National Enquirer has upped the "marriage and babies" ante, claiming not only that Kim wants to get pregnant with Kanye's twins, but also that she's planning a ridiculously over-the-top $20 million wedding.
"Kim originally planned to use a surrogate to preserve what she calls her 'money-maker,' that being her curvaceous shape. But after their trip to Italy, she said, 'All I want now is to be Kanye's wife and the mother of his babies. I don't care what it does to my figure!'" a "source close to her" tells the mag, adding, "Kim wants to make sure her first delivery will be twins."
It's really hard to believe that Kim wouldn't be worried about what pregnancy would do to her body when her whole "career" is based on her looks. And why does she want twins? Does she want to have two at once so she doesn't have to get pregnant again? Does she think that double the babies equals double the attention she'll get? Whatever the reasoning, Kim is supposedly already researching "high-tech fertility treatments" and is planning to spend $200,000 to get knocked up.
But interestingly, The Enquirer also claims that before their trip to Italy, Kim hadn't been certain she wanted to have kids with Kanye because she "had been unsure of her commitment to" him.
"Kim and Kanye were having problems," The Enquirer's snitch says. "He was resisting pressure from Kim's mom Kris [Jenner] to play a bigger role in the family's reality TV show, and they'd been fighting. But seeing pictures of a voluptuous-looking Kim on the beach in Miami had Kanye salivating. Some people may think she looks heavy in the front and rear, but Kanye loves her that way. Kim has always been his perfect woman. And while they were in Italy, Kanye showed Kim that he's everything she's ever dreamed of in a man."
Their issues were magically solved by Kim in a swimsuit and a few "gourmet meals at the finest restaurants and swanky suites at the ritziest hotels"? Oh yeah, this relationship's definitelygoing to last! How come The Enquirer buried the lead about these two "having problems," anyway? That is actual news, instead of the usual "they're so in luuuuuuurve" stories that the tabloids usually run.
But The Enquirer quickly glosses over the suggestion that not everything is perfect for Kimye and claims that the two are planning "a lavish $20 million wedding as soon as her divorce from Kris Humphries is final." In fact, Kanye allegedly wanted to propose while they were in Italy, but "they decided to wait" because they were worried "that an engagement wouldn't look good with Kim's divorce from Kris still unsettled." So they went from "having problems" and "unsure of [their] commitment" to "would have gotten engaged except Kim's still married to some other guy" in like a weekend? Sure. That sounds like Kim's reasoning. And given this is the second time a tabloid has run a $20 million wedding report lately, there might be something to it. But considering a story like this surfaces every single week but Kimye still haven't moved in/gotten engaged/gotten pregnant, hopefully this is just another tabloid false alarm.
What do you think? Does Kim Kardashian want to have twins with Kanye West? Will they blow $20 million on a gaudy, over-the-top wedding? Sound off in the comments!
