LOS ANGELES – Kris Jenner says her daughter Kim Kardashian is thrilled to have a new baby.
Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West were keeping silent in the wake of multiple reports that Kardashian gave birth over the weekend – about a month premature.
But Jenner told E! at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday that Kim is “extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby and she’s doing great and she’s beautiful.”
Kardashian’s sister Khloe appeared to have let a rather cryptic cat out of the bag on Twitter.
“I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love,” she tweeted Sunday.
She quickly followed with a second tweet: “More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”
Jenner linked to both tweets on her Twitter account, then wished West a Happy Father’s Day.
Asked for comment on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys, where she was a presenter, Jenner said, “She’s in charge,” pointing at her publicist who whisked her away from print reporters after doing TV interviews.
The reality TV star’s pregnancy was almost as anticipated as the royal pregnancy of Kate Middleton, who is due in mid-July.
That’s about the time the Kardashian baby had been due.
