TMZ reported that Kim Kardashian gave birth to her baby girl last Saturday five weeks early, leading Dr. Oz to advise Kim and Kanye to take care of their “premature baby.”
“I’ve been following Kim’s story, which I have a personal interest in aside from being a doctor,” Dr Oz told US Weekly. “Our youngest child [Oliver] was born five weeks premature. So I know how hair-raising that is.”
But sources close to her family told People that she gave birth three weeks early, and was at 37 weeks, which is right on the edge of giving birth prematurely, since 37-41 weeks is considered the healthy range for childbirth. People usually has legitimate sources, so this can probably be trusted.
According to People‘s issue this week:
Admitted June 14 due to complications, Kardashian – whom sources confirm was about 37 weeks pregnant – went into premature labor.
West, meanwhile, who’d returned from promoting his new album Yeezus in Europe just hours before, rushed to her side.
By the next day, Kardashian had given birth to a girl, “the prettiest, tiniest thing with a full head of straight, dark hair, a cute little nose and Kim’s lips,” says one of several close friends who visited her over the weekend. “She’s already smiling!”
Though she’s been spending time in an incubator to regulate her body temperature, a standard course of treatment for premature babies, Baby K – whose parents have nearly decided on a name – is “doing very well,” says a hospital source.
According to this report, at the time the baby girl’s name has not be decided on yet, but one name that’s been bandied about the internet: “Kaidence Donda West.”
