Born: A daughter, to Kanye West, 36, and Kim Kardashian, 32, in Los Angeles Saturday morning, according to several celebrity outlets (ranging from the more gossipy to the more cautious to the one that employs her). First child for both the hip-hop superstar and the reality TV icon, who have been in a relationship for more than a year. Both mother and child said to be in fine health. The delivery (by Caesarian section, if you need to know) reportedly came a few weeks earlier than Kardashian’s expected due date but ended up fortuitously timed for a publicity-minded couple: Just days ahead of West’s much-hyped new CD release (“Yeezus”), and safely a month ahead of the season’s other big celebaby arrival — the child of England’s Prince William and Duchess Kate. Also: A little more than a week after Kardashian’s divorce from her quickie 2011 marriage to Kris Humphries was finalized. So, whew! No word yet on a name, but the new dad may keep us waiting a bit on such details. He told the New York Times last week that “I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
Updated Sunday 7:00 p.m.: It’s official — family matriarch Kris Jenner tweeted “HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest !!!!!” Sunday afternoon. Because everyone knows nothing happens until a Kardashian tweets it.
