LOS ANGELES, June 5 (UPI) --
Rapper Kanye West
will be present when his girlfriend Kim Kardashian
gives birth to their first child in Los Angeles, Hollyscoop reported Wednesday.
"Kanye will be in the delivery room," a source close to Kardashian told the celebrity news outlet Wednesday.
The statement contradicts an In Touch article reporting West plans to stay out of the delivery room because he is squeamish and doesn't want to be around blood.
Kardashian is expected to give birth to their daughter in mid-July.
