Kim Kardashian’s Baby: New Details About the “Harrowing” Birth! (UPDATE)

UPDATE: People has released more teases from the upcoming cover story — like that Kanye was "very emotional" during the birth, according to a confidante.

Meanwhile, Robin Antin — founder of music group GRL — visited Kim and Kanye in the hospital and adds that the ordeal was "a lot to go through ... I'm sure [Kim] was exhausted, but she handled it like a pro ... She's a natural mother."

And luckily for Kim, she was able to hold the baby girl after the newborn's time in the incubator... and then never put her down!

Robin also corroborates the reports of Kanye's giddiness, saying that he is "so happy" and that the "energy between them is amazing." So amazing, in fact, that a source says that a Kimye wedding is next on the power couple's agenda!

Original story:

We were all surprised this past weekend to learn that Kim Kardashian had gone into labor and given birth: We weren't expecting the baby until next month!

But the Kimye baby must have been dead-set on arriving fashionably early — that's a thing now — and Kim and boyfriend Kanye West welcomed the newcomer to their family on June 15.

In the cover story of People Magazine's latest issue — on newsstands Friday — the magazine reveals new details about Kim's "emotional, harrowing night" after she checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on June 14, due to complications.

Once ensconced in the hospital, Kim went into premature labor, only 37 weeks into her pregnancy. Kanye, who was busy promoting new album Yeezus, hurried to her side.

The next day, Kim delivered "the prettiest, tiniest thing with a full head of straight, dark hair, a cute nose, and Kim's lips," according to one of her close friends, who adds, "She's already smiling!"

The newborn was then put into an incubator to control her body temperature — as is tradition for preemie babies.

But even if they can't have as much cuddle-time with their new child, People reports that Kim and Kanye are "over the moon."

The only thing that's left to do is choose a name... and clue us in!
