Kim Kardashian has reportedly been told to keep quiet about her new baby by her mom Kris Jenner.
The reality star gave birth to her first child with Kanye West on Saturday (June 15) but has so far been silent about her newborn online – despite previously being a ‘Twitterholic’.
Now rumors have emerged that Kim’s silence over her baby is all part of momager Kris Jenner’s plan to make the most out of the newborn – with the first thing she intends to do being an exclusive on her upcoming chat show ‘Kris’.
According to Radar Online, Jenner told well wishers at Sunday night’s Daytime Emmy Awards “to tune into her new talk show to get all the inside scoop about Kim’s newborn baby.”
An insider revealed: “When someone asked Kris if the baby would make an appearance on the show, she demurely said ‘you will have to watch.’
“Kris was asked if she had any pictures of the baby, and she revealed she did, but didn’t want share with anyone. Kris was absolutely loving all of the attention she was getting, and was absolutely milking it.”
A family insider admits that Kim’s “uncharacteristic” silence suggests she might be in on the money-making scheme, despite Kanye’s objections about having his child brought up in the public eye.
“(Kim) has been uncharacteristically quiet since giving birth. This could be part of the plan to generate a ton of publicity about the baby, as her name hasn’t even been revealed yet,” the source explained.
“Kanye of course has been very vocal about not wanting his daughter to be on any of the Kardashian reality shows.”
The week before Kim gave birth, West was quoted in the New York Times as saying “This is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
However, sources say that if Jenner decides she wants her granddaughter revealed on her talk show, she will be.
“She will make it happen,” the insider claims. “Kim has a very hard time ever saying no to her mom. She wants Kris’ talk show to be a success, and wants to help any way she possibly can.
“This could put Kim at odds with Kanye, but Kris isn’t worried about that. Kris knows Kim will do it in the end because she is so close to her.”
“The baby will absolutely be America’s baby,” added the source. “The family has made their money by sharing their lives with television viewers, and she doesn’t want that to stop now!”
