Initially, Kim kept the identity of the child’s father under wraps. Her boyfriend, aspiring rapper Mr. Papers later confirmed that he was the father. On Valentine’s day, Mr. Papers called the Rickey Morning Smiley Show, confirming the great news. He shared that the couple are expecting a boy, but remained tight-lipped about baby names. He said:
Yeah, that’s my baby…I don’t really wanna give that to the world yet, but we gon’ let y’all know soon though. Word. You know what I mean? We ain’t gon’ hold it too long…He gon’ be a Gemini though. Youknow what I mean? But I don’t really wanna give you all that information.
No confirmation on whether the shower will be filmed, but our guess is it’s highly likely.
