Kanye West doesn't want to watch his pregnant girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, give birth because he's very squeamish about blood and would rather wait outside the delivery suite until the labour is over.
The truth is, Kanye is scared he'll just add to Kim's anxiety during labour. He suggested he could stick to pacing outside the delivery...
The 'Stronger' rapper is expecting his first child with the reality TV star and while he wants to be there for her, he isn't sure he can be by her side during labour.
A source said: "Emotionally, Kanye wants to be there for Kim throughout the labour, but he's just not sure he's up to it.
"He's embarrassed about it, but Kanye has always fainted at the sight of blood. And he feels very squeamish at the thought of watching the birth.
"The truth is, Kanye is scared he'll just add to Kim's anxiety during labour. He suggested he could stick to pacing outside the delivery room - but Kim has jokingly branded him a 'wimp'."
If Kanye decides not to be in the delivery suite, Kim wants her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney and Khloe to be with her.
The source continued to Closer magazine: "Kim's starting to think that she'd rather have her sisters and mum as her birth partners."
Kim, 32, was in the room when Kourtney gave birth to her two children, Mason, three, and six-month-old Penelope.
