According to TMZ, doctors have told Kim and Kanye that their second child may arrive on Christmas Day, and to plan for a natural birth happening then.
However, because Kim reportedly has a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterus, it may be necessary for her to schedule a Caesarean section for that day, if she hasn't already given birth.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly been told to prepare for a Christmas Day birth
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is expected to give birth at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she welcomed her first baby, daughter North West. The hospital is a favourite with fellow A-listers including Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.
Kim, 34, has reportedly booked a deluxe maternity suite, which offers a fully stocked in-room refrigerator and a flat-screen TV, as well as wifi. Some of the packages also offer haircuts, manicures and pedicures.
Kim announced her second pregnancy in a teaser for an episode of her family's show. The reality TV favourite is seen receiving the news from a doctor, and then telling her sister Khloé: "I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!"
Kim, who is proud mum to daughter North West, has previously said she wouldn't call her son South West
A couple of weeks later on Father's Day, Kim revealed that she and Kanye are expecting a baby boy. Sharing a photo of the Yeezus rapper and little North, she wrote: "You're such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!"
Despite calling her daughter North West, Kim has said that her baby boy will not be called South West. "I wouldn't do that [set them up in conflict with each other]," Kim said on Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me. "I don't think we'll go with another direction."
