UNCONFIRMED: The gender of the baby

A source close to the couple informed Hollywood Life that Kardashian, 32, who is three months’ pregnant, had an early test performed that determined the gender of their baby.

“Kim has always dreamed of having a little girl and now she has her wish!” the source told Hollywood Life. “She and Kanye talked about not finding out but they were too excited. Kim has always wanted a little girl and everyone is so excited.”

Ever since West, 35, announced the pregnancy at a concert Sunday night (watch the announcement here), speculation has abounded as to whether they would learn the baby’s gender early. At a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas, Kardashian told Us Weekly, "Of course I do want to know. I can't find out yet, but I do want to know,” she said.

Already baby drama

TMZ reported has reported that under California law, Kardashian’s ex, Kris Humphries, is the "presumed father" of the baby since the two are still married. Legally, Humphries could lay claim to the baby, and Kardashian would have to present "clear and convincing" evidence, such as a DNA test, that West is the biological father, according to TMZ.

Humphries is seeking an annulment on grounds that the marriage was fraudulent, and Kardashian wants a divorce. A Feb. 15 court date has been set to determine a date for the divorce proceedings. (Read more on Humphries and Kardashian’s 72-day marriage.)
