Konsidering the Kardashians rule the E! network, with Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West announcing they're expecting, the obvious question has been: Will the Kimye baby be a reality TV star too?
There are reports on both sides of the fence.
"Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting," E! president Suzanne Kolb told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear."
But TMZ reports Kimye has decided their baby will not be an infant reality TV star. "Sources close to Kim tell us she and Kanye don't want their baby dragged into the family biz," the website claims, adding that the couple wants to "ensure real privacy" for the baby. TMZ also says that there will be no Kimye baby spinoff, nor will there be a "Kim Gives Birth" special.
When Kardashian and West began dating in April 2012, questions arose about whether or not the controversial rapper would show up on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and the royal reality TV family's other series. Indeed, West was a part of the show's seventh season in numerous episodes.
Kardashian's sister Kourtney's pregnancies have been captured on the series and Kim, who is still legally married to Kris Humphries, documented her wedding in an E! two-night special titled "Kim's Fairytale Wedding."
What do you think? Will Kim and Kanye keep their baby away from the reality TV spotlight? Weigh in in the comments!
Tune in for the latest in Kardashian E! programming when "Kourtney & Kim Take Miami" premieres on Sunday, January 20 at 9 p.m. EST.
