Kim Kardashian has managed to capitalize on her undeniable celebrity status, and turn the public’s fascination with her into a successful and profitable career.

The reality star and entrepreneur always has some sort of business venture or product endorsement going on, and her recent pregnancy hasn’t changed that one bit.

However, Life & Style magazine is reporting that the 32-year-old is now beginning to “panic” over fears that having a baby is going to ruin her career.

“Kim is a bit worried that having a baby will affect her sexy brand image she’s built up over the years,” a source tells the mag. Uh, has she never heard of Beyonce? Jessica Alba? Angelina Jolie? Countless numbers of today’s sexiest celebs are also mothers, and it hasn’t seemed to hurt their careers one bit.

That’s not Kim’s only fear, though. “Kim is nervous about her money-making abilities once she gets super pregnant,” the source says.

“She’s worried she won’t be asked to make club appearances — her bread and butter — once she gets huge or becomes a mom.”

In keeping up with the Kardashians’ many reality TV shows, we’ve definitely noticed that Kim’s sister Kourtney cut down on her workload after giving birth to kids Mason and Penelope. Of course it’s possible that Kim might decide to do the same thing, but we hardly think she’ll stop working entirely.

It’s the year 2013. A woman can have both a family and a successful business career. Totally, completely possible.

So is there any truth to these reports? Gossip Cop checked with a Kardashian family insider, and they report that claims of Kim thinking her baby could tank her career are “so wrong.”

We’re calling this rumor squashed. Becoming a mother is not going to end Kim Kardashian’s career. She’s Kim Kardashian, for crying out loud. This girl isn’t going away anytime soon.
