Kim Kardashian: 'We're Having a Girl'

Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Kardashian celebrated her baby shower on Sunday, and a few hours later, the fans of her E! reality show got in on the fun, when it was revealed on the show that she and rapper Kanye West are expecting a girl.

“I’m thinking it’s a girl,” her physician Dr. Paul Crane said at her 19-week appointment.

“I’m so excited we’re having a girl. Who doesn’t want a girl?” Kardashian said. “They are the best and I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl.”

Kardashian, 32, learned the news during a doctor’s appointment that she went to with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe. So where was West?

“The baby was always in a position where you couldn’t tell the sex, and this time that you’re going to see on the show, [Kanye] was in London or Paris,” Khloe said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show last week. “He had a concert.”

Before the announcement Sunday night, the couple worked hard to keep the baby’s gender a secret.

“We buy all white,” Kardashian told the Huffington Post in April. “Or we’ll go and buy both [boys' and girls' clothing], and then no one will know.”

Now, she’s just preparing herself for the delivery in a few weeks.

“At the beginning that was what I feared the most, and now, I mean, it’s inevitable,” she told the website. “It’s gonna happen. I’m really not worried or nervous.”

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West at Center of NY Airport Confusion

Eric Ryan/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West caused a stir while rushing to catch a connecting flight at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport on Wednesday.

According to TMZ, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is investigating after an airline greeter allowed Kardashian and West to take a shortcut in the security screening process, in order to make their flight. 

The two, who had just flown from Brazil, boarded their flight to Los Angeles without problems.  But after taking their seats, a TSA agent took them off the plane.

The couple was escorted through another security check before they were allowed back on the L.A.-bound aircraft.  The flight was delayed 50 minutes, but a rep for American Airlines tells TMZ that it wasn't Kardasian and West's fault.  Instead, the spokesperson says part of the problem was that luggage that was marked for the connecting flight had been slow to get to the plane.

West and Kardashian made it to Los Angeles without incident, but the airline staffer who let the couple bypass part of the security process may be in some hot water.  An American Airline rep calls the incident a "lapse in judgement by one of our employees."

Kardashian is pregnant with her first child with the rapper.

Kim Talks Marriage, Kourtney Disses Kris Humphries, on "Letterman"

Stuart Wilson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kim and Kourtney Kardashian appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday evening, and not surprisingly, Kim's marriage to Kris Humphries and her new pregnancy with Kanye West's baby took center stage.

On her mega-hyped marriage, Kim told Letterman he and other comics need to stop poking fun at her brief marriage -- because she's technically still married.

"Those jokes really can't work, because I've really been married for almost two years.  So, it hasn't been 72 days, it's been almost two years, so those jokes have to stop," she said.

The couple isn't divorced, because Humphries wants an annulment, claiming Kim committed fraud, tying the knot only to reap the rewards of a reality ratings bonanza.

Kourtney was quick to jump in, sniping, "...If she was going to do it for publicity, she'd pick someone that people knew."

As for her baby-to-be, Kim said the due date is in July, and while she doesn't yet know the sex, she's "dying to find out."

Kim Kardashian Won’t Have to Prove Kanye West Is Baby’s Father

Eric Ryan/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Those reports that a California law may force Kim Kardashian to prove that Kanye West fathered her child because she’s still technically married to Kris Humphries? Dismiss them.

According to California attorney Dana Cole the legal “anomaly” about presumed fatherhood that is on the books in most states doesn’t apply to Kardashian.

“It’s a law that ensures that a child has two parents,” he told ABC News. “It’s used in absence of evidence to the contrary, if someone is not claiming fatherhood. In this situation, it would never be triggered.”

West proudly announced that Kardashian was pregnant with his child at a Dec. 30 concert. While Kardashian’s split from Humphries has yet to be settled — they were married for 72 days before she filed for divorce in 2011 — Cole said her marriage status is a “non-issue” when it comes to her baby.

Sounds like Kardashian and West can focus on more pressing matters, like whether or not their little one will be featured on reality TV.

‘Made in America’ Rocks with Jay-Z, Obama and More

PRNewsFoto/BET Networks(Philadelphia, Pa.) -- “Made in America” concert goers are still buzzing about Jay-Z’s blow out set at his inaugural music festival Saturday night, in which special guests including Kanye West and Common brought down the house with HOVA.

The rap mogul even roped in President Obama, who made a video appearance to voice his support for Made in America’s patriotic purpose and urge attendees to register to vote.

An hour ahead of the start of MIA’s second day, there seemed to be almost as many voter registration volunteers as concert goers.

Blame it on the rain or Jay-Z’s show-stopping set — it sounds like it’ll be all but impossible to top his chaos-enduring rendition of “N***** in Paris.”

But with an A-list group of performers on deck Sunday — from Drake to Run DMC to Pearl Jam — a legendary show is likely to go down anyway.
