Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just welcomed their second baby, but sources say they could also be headed for divorce as jealousy and fighting have reportedly torn them apart.
There have been various reports of trouble in the marriage throughout Kim’s second pregnancy, one that by Kim’s own admission was very difficult. Kim struggled with health issues and weight gain, all while her husband has been busy finishing up his new album and often away from home. As a result, sources said that the couple grew apart and even hovered around the idea of divorce.
Now, the birth of their son, Saint West, has apparently done little to help the situation. A new report from Life & Style Magazine claims that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian appear to be at a breaking point.
“The Kardashians put on this huge front that they are all happy and united, but that is not the reality,” the report claimed (via Celeb Dirty Laundry). “They’re jealous of each other, they argue, and throw things. It will be a miracle if they get through this holiday and are still speaking to each other. With all of the craziness in their lives, it will be the worst Christmas the Kardashians have ever had.”
The report claims that the situation is even worse, saying that Kanye West dumped his wife right before Saint West was born. They reportedly got past the blip and ended up going home together with the baby, but Kanye left again shortly afterward for a slate of upcoming performances and appearances.
The reports could have something to do with the stresses of a difficult pregnancy and birth. Radar Online reported that Kim Kardashian is overwhelmed with the birth of her baby boy and is even considering hiring professional help to care for her two kids.
The report claimed that Kim already had her hands full with her 2-year-old daughter, North West, and now is utterly overwhelmed.
“Kim and Kanye are definitely going to be hiring extra help,” the insider told Radar Online. “It is already way too much for them to handle and it has only been three days!”
If Kim is overwhelmed, she and the family are keeping it quiet. Just a few days after Saint West was born, grandmother Kris Jenner called Kim “cranky” but said that she is doing well otherwise.
“She was amazing. I mean, she’s a really strong girl — a little cranky when she gets uncomfortable — but other than that, she’s amazing,” Jenner told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday (via Us Weekly).
“She’s doing great right now. I think she’s happy that part of it is over, and he’s here,” she added to Us. “And he’s healthy and everybody’s good and all tucked in at home. So we’re good.”
Kim appears to be doing better as well. While Kim sometimes took to social media to vent during her pregnancy, she now appears more vibrant, including going out to events and socializing.
She and Kanye are also working as a team, including a recent announcement that they will be donating 1,000 pairs of Kim’s shoes to charity.

It can be difficult to find where the truth lies when it comes to Kim Kardashian and divorce rumors. The Kardashian family has been tabloid fodder for years, with reports each week from various unnamed sources. There have also been a number of past reports noting trouble between Kim and Kanye West, but they have never come to pass.
