Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are (duh times a million) expecting their first baby in July, and as people with eyes and access to the internet, we can tell that they aren’t spending all their time together.

In fact, they seem to be spending more time together than apart, and Kim confirmed as much in her deposition for her upcoming divorce trial. Not that this is surprising, since he’s in Paris working on his new album, and she’s back in L.A. dealing with her many work commitments and personal appearances.

We’re very impressed that they are making it work, but we can’t help but notice that Kim seems to be doing a little more than her fair share of travelling. After all, she’s the pregnant lady, and she did have a miscarriage scare after one transatlantic flight.

Of course, Kanye came back to Los Angeles for the ultrasound that would tell these excited parents-to-be the gender of their baby, and he flew to Atlanta to be with Kim at the premiere of Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions Of A Marriage Counselor. And that’s great. But Kim has been to Paris three times already, and it’s probably a safe bet that she’ll be back again soon. 

What gives? Why is Kanye staying in France while his pregnant girlfriend is so often in California? Sure, he has an album to finish, and apparently a clothing line to launch, so he has plenty to keep him in Paris.

But we have a different theory: It’s not so much being in Paris that’s important to Kanye, it’s being out of L.A.! And why? Because the day after he went to that ultrasound with Kimmy, the cameras started rolling on Season 8 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians! Since he’s made no secret of his aversion to Kim’s reality shows, we’re not at all surprised that he’s staying far, far away from the cameras while he still can.
