Kim Kardashian has been a busy expecting little mother as her due date looms ever closer. For the reality television star and other half to Kanye West, it’s all baby showers and Paris France not Texas, baby.
Kim posted on her blog Tuesday, “My final trip before I can’t fly anymore! My mom and I flew to Paris to soak in the amazingness Paris has to offer before I can’t travel any more! We were doing some baby shopping and checking on our place here before heading to LA for a while.”
The 32 year-old mom-to-be is getting all her jet setting out of the way while she still can. But besides taking in the sights and stores of gay Paree it seems that not too much later she’s got a baby shower to attend.
But while she’s still in Paris she has been making sure that there has been plenty of time to hit the baby shops in the city’s St. Germain district on Tuesday.
Kim and mom Kris Jenner found the expensive and oh so classy Ovale baby boutique, where they picked up some “non-gender” specific clothes and looked over the collection of baby silver jewelry and cuddly toys, including a handmade teddy bear.
Even if the expectant mother hadn’t picked the “non-gender” clothes, Ovale, like Swiss Banks, practice a non-disclosure policy that means what ever prospective parents buy the store stays “mum” on the subject of if they were boy or girl items. They actually specialise in colours that can be either/or, instead of pink and blue; think beige and ivory.
But back to that baby shower. The invitations for the 2 June event have already been sent out to Hollywood A-listers, including fellow moms Beyoncé and Fergie.
The invitations came in a music box that plays a lullaby version of boyfriend Kanye West’s 2005 Late Registration cut, Hey Mama. The box also features a dark-haired ballerina. The actual event is being hosted by mom Kris Jenner, sisters Khloe and Kourtney and Shelli Azoff, who is married to music manager Irving Azoff.
According to the invites, the dress code is “garden chic.” The location of the shower will be at Azoff’s home and the invitees have been asked to not bring presents for the shower but to give donations to the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Kanye’s hometown of Chicago. The singer is expected to stop by the party and make a very brief appearance, after all, last May, he was on hand at Kourtney’s baby shower for her second child, Penelope.
The party will take place on the same day that the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians premieres on E! and just a short time before Kanye drops his new album release, Yeezus, on June 18.
Kim is reportedly due sometime in July.
Kim said previously that she won’t be letting cameras into the delivery room while she’s having the baby. “I’m going to keep that private,” she said and she added, “I’m hoping to take some time off. And just focus on that and not really work as much for a little bit.”
