Kim Kardashian doesn't want to receive baby gifts.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star and her partner Kanye West will welcome their first child into the world in July, and have asked friends not to send presents for the new addition to their family, insisting numerous baby registries that have appeared online are all fake.

Instead, the couple have asked well-wishers to send donations to the Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, close to where Kanye grew up, website TMZ reports.

While Kim doesn't want to receive baby gifts, it was recently claimed she had sent one to Britain's Duchess Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage - and her husband Prince William, as she is a big fan of the royal couple and their first child is due at a similar time to her own.

A source said: "When Kim found out the pair had similar due dates, she got incredibly excited.

"She had her PA write a kind, warm note to Kate, enclosing a gift for the future heir to the throne and explaining they were both due in July."
