Kris Jenner: Baby North West is amazing
Kris Jenner gushed that daughter Kim Kardashian’s baby North West is “amazing” and “doing great” following her premature birth.
The Kardashian matriarch discussed daughter Kim Kardashian’s baby for the first time during an appearance on The Today Show.
Kim and boyfriend Kanye West welcomed North on June 15, apparently five weeks before her due date.
People magazine reported that doctors made the decision to induce Kim’s labour early because she had severe swelling, which led experts to believe she suffered from preeclampsia. The condition can affect organs and cause poor growth for the child.
Despite the potential danger, Kris reports the premature tot is the picture of health.
“She’s amazing and everybody’s doing really well at home,” Kris said. “Right now everybody’s good, the baby’s doing great and happy and healthy. It’s a really joyful time.”
Today’s host Matt Lauer then tried to persuade Kris to show viewers photographs of the baby via her cell phone.
However, the Kardashian ‘Momager’ was careful not to give out too many details of the new addition to the family.
“I’d have to kill you if I showed you,” she joked. “I’m erasing them all right after this.”
Kris, 57, is busy promoting her self-titled talk show, which will debut on Fox network July 15.
She also wouldn’t be drawn into discussing a possible wedding between Kim and her rapper beau.
“You’d have to ask them that,” she said. “I keep all that stuff to them.”
Kris has previously defended the baby’s unusual name, which has been criticised in some quarters.
A source recently told E! News that the couple saw the name North as meaning “highest power”.
“I think it’s great. Why not?” Kris told Fox 4 News in Dallas. “That’s what’s going on these days, lots of creative names.”
