Get your saltshakers ready, K-dash fans, because the latest tabloid item on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby will need a liberal dose. Apparently Kanye is a wee bit finicky when it comes to blood, so he won’t be present at the birth of his baby!

This Kimye tidbit apparently comes courtesy of UK’s Closer magazine. “Emotionally, Kanye wants to be there for Kim throughout the labor, but he's just not sure he's up to it,” a “close friend” told the magazine.

If any of this is true, Kanye’s reason for wanting to avoid the delivery room is a desire to remain conscious. ''He's embarrassed about it, but Kanye has always fainted at the sight of blood,” the source said. “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 labor."

Instead, Kanye has reportedly suggested he’ll stick to a (very, very) old school practice: pacing outside the delivery room.

Is there any truth to this at all? Who knows. And if Kim and Kanye stick to their guns about keeping their baby business private, we may never find out!
