There may be trouble in paradise for rapper Kanye West and reality star Kim Kardashian. While divorce rumors are nothing new for the couple, who celebrated their first wedding anniversary in May, 2015, the couple’s young marriage is reportedly in danger thanks to the new addition to their family, baby Saint West.
According to Hollywood Life, Kanye West is begging Kim Kardashian West to slow down and take a break after her difficult pregnancy. It seems that 35-year-old Kim Kardashian West is still exhausted from the pregnancy and labor. To Kanye West, it seems like the perfect time for Kim to rest. He’s even hired a baby nurse to take some of the pressure off of Kim, and is reportedly pitching in to make sure the next few months with newborn Saint go smoothly.
“But I will say, as much as I really hate the whole feeling of being pregnant, I enjoy the challenge of getting my body back after it’s all over. I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”
Kim Kardashian-West’s statements certainly don’t sound like those of a woman content to kick back and bask in the glow of her newborn son. There may be a deeper meaning than fans realize.
Radar Online reports that Kim and Kanye haven’t had sex in months because Kim was so depressed by her growing baby bump. According to an unidentified source, Kim’s growing body triggered self-esteem issues so big that she couldn’t stand to expose her body to her husband. The source claims that Kanye was understanding, but frustrated.
Some outlets are committed to the idea that the Kim and Kanye West’s marriage is on the rocks. In a recent issue, Life & Style claimed that Kanye West abandoned Kim Kardashian-West at the end of her pregnancy. Celebrity rumor busting site Gossip Cop pointed out that Life & Style tried to spin a trip to New York in which Kanye West was honored at the Footwear News Achievement Awards into him dumping his pregnant wife just as she was due to give birth. In fact, Kim tweeted congratulations to her husband, though she didn’t travel with him.
Is the marriage of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West in crisis? Probably not. Even if the Radar Online report is accurate, it’s not unusual for couples to cut back on sex late in pregnancy. In fact, most medical professionals recommend that women don’t have sex until three to six weeks after giving birth as their body heals. That means that Kim and Kanye won’t be able to have sex for at least two more weeks.
It doesn’t look like Kim and Kanye are splitting any time soon. But, in the unlikely event that their marriage collapses, fans are certain to hear about it on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
