Keeping up with the Kardashians: Kanye's high hopes for daughter

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have high hopes for their daughter, 16-month-old North West, and reportedly want her to be the next Albert Einstein.


The couple - who have 16-month-old North together - are hoping their daughter will grow up to do a job that she loves.

A source close to the pair told "What they're hoping for as parents is that [North] will find something that she loves doing every single day and, by default, make money from it.

"Whether it's being a writer, a composer, an artist, a teacher, an inventor of the next big idea, whatever - it will never be work for her because she's privileged enough to only do things that she loves and enjoys."

The source added: "[Kanye] wants her to live the life and become one of the greats like him, or Emily Dickinson, or Einstein, or Chopin, or Rembrandt. This is the life they want her to have and she will."

The 37-year-old rapper - who married the 34-year-old 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star earlier this year - is reportedly so keen for North to become a prodigy that he spends a lot of his time educating her with poetry and classical music.

The source said: "[Kanye] reads poems to her and plays all types of music for her including scores from the most renowned composers.

"He loves it when she scribbles on the paper in her bedroom or when she speaks her own baby language.

"He lets her explore life to the fullest because he wants her mind to know no boundaries."

Why Kim is so 'emotional'

Kim Kardashian West was reportedly "emotional" when her and Kanye West took a trip back to the place where he proposed a year ago.

Kanye West - who asked Kim to marry him on her birthday last year - surprised his wife with a trip to the Bay Area to watch the San Francisco Giants to celebrate the anniversary of their engagement.

The couple attended the AT&T Park last year and it is reportedly where Kanye popped the question.

An eye-witness told "She was emotional most of the time and was in the bathroom in the private sky box for an inning or two.

"She was crying tears of joy, of happiness and didn't want people to see her being an emotional wreck.

"More importantly, because you know how vain she is, she didn't want anyone seeing her makeup run all down her face."

Kim, 34, and 37-year-old Kanye - who have 16-month-old North West together - watched as the game was won by the Giants, who beat the Kansas City Royals 5 - 0.

Kim was treated to a first class experience at the game, but according to the source, she was more focused on remembering the couple's trip there a year ago.

The source continued: "She just wanted some private time to herself as she remembered the engagement to her husband and to the man she plans to spend the rest of her life with."

Kim Kardashian West "wants to cry" when she watches Kendall Jenner walk down the fashion runway.

The 34-year-old reality TV star admits her eyes start to fill with tears when her 18-year-old half-sister does the catwalk because she's proud of how far she's come.

Speaking to LOOK magazine, she said: "I literally want to cry when I see Kendall walking down a runway. I feel like she's my daughter sometimes, like I'm a proud mum! She knew what she wanted from the beginning, always, and she got it.

Pic: AP

"I think I'm just so proud that my sister has such a strong work ethic and she's really achieved what she set out to do and she made it happen for herself. That's what makes me the most proud."

However, it doesn't seem like Kim, who has 16-month-old daughter North with her husband Kanye West, will be attending many more of Kendall's shows as the youngster recently admitted she doesn't like Kim watching her when she's working.

Kendall said previously: "She [Kim] called me before [one of the shows] and was like, 'Hey I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?' and I was like, 'No.'"

The 'New Slaves' hitmaker - who married the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star in Italy in May - surprised her with a trip to Maui, Hawaii for her 34th birthday.

An eyewitness told the couple enjoyed a casual breakfast date at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea to celebrate the reality TV star's special day on Tuesday.

The source said: "They actually looked like any other regular couple, I had to do a double take to make sure it really was them.

"They must be staying at a private villa because I haven't seen them around the hotel, on the beach, or around any of the pools.

"They also looked really loved up. Kanye was holding Kim's hand throughout much of breakfast and they talked and laughed non-stop.

Pic: Getty Images

"At one point though Kanye chided Kim for constantly checking her phone - but, she just laughed it off, and held his hand again."

Kim, who has daughter North, 15-months, with Kanye, also shared a photograph of a sunrise from their location on Instagram on Wednesday, with the caption: "Good morning #BdaySurpriseGettaway"

Kanye rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco, California for Kim's birthday last year and proposed to her in front of her closest family and friends.

The 37-year-old rapper also gushed about the brunette beauty on Twitter this week, writing: "Happy Birthday baby! Thank you for being the dopest wife & mom! (sic)"

He then added: "Sometimes I feel like just saying I love you isn't strong enough to express how much I love you... (sic)"

The 34-year-old star, whose parents were also wealthy when she was growing up, told ES Magazine: "We didn't get anything [from my parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save."

She added: "I was saying that earlier to my friends, 'I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be.' And they were like, 'What? She's gonna have a job?' and I was like, 'Are you kidding me? Of course she is.' She will have to work for what she wants."

The reality TV star hopes North, who recently attended Paris Fashion Week, will become a fashion designer.

Asked what she thinks her daughter might aspire to be, she said: "I don't know. She loves fashion. Maybe she'll be a designer. Who knows? It's too early to tell."

Despite Kim's comments, a source recently revealed the tot already has her own stylist, 200 items of unworn designer clothes in her wardrobe, $50,000 diamond earrings, an organic chef and several expensive strollers located around the world.

The insider said: "All of North's stuff is always waiting at the location they're travelling to.

"They use a local caterer to bring in food for North while she is in Paris. Kim likes Nori's food to be all organic."

Why Kris Jenner is 'torn apart'

Kris Jenner feels "torn apart and angry" that her estranged husband Bruce Jenner is now dating her friend and assistant Rhonad Kamilhira.

Pic: Bang

The 58-year-old matriarch split from the 64-year-old Olympic gold medallist last October following 22-years of marriage but is reportedly fuming that her estranged husband is now romancing her friend Ronda Kamihira.

A source told "Kris feels utterly betrayed by Ronda Kamihira, who to this day has not said a word to her about seeing Bruce.

Pic: Bang

"Kris has seen photos of Bruce and Ronda in public, including the Elton John concert on October 4 in Los Angeles. She feels humiliated and played."

The source added: "Kris feels torn apart and angry."

Pic: Getty Images

The former couple - who have daughters, Kendall, 18, and Kylie, 17, together as well as four other children each from previous marriages - have spent a lot of time with Ronda's family over the past 20 years.

A source said previously: "Kendall and Kylie grew up with her two kids and have been their best friends."

Pic: Getty Images

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' beauty - who filed for divorce from Bruce last month - isn't looking for a new relationship any time soon but hopes to fall in love again at some point in the future.

She said: "I want to definitely be in love, I like being in love, I think there's no better feeling in the world. So yeah, I mean that would be amazing."

Pregnant Kourtney's how & wow

Kourtney Kardashian's pregnancy style is not any average maternity wear.

The 35-year-old reality star, who is pregnant with her third child, slipped into a tiny body clingy minidress and topped it with a checkered shirt.

The pregnant beauty has excelled in the style department. Recently, she borrowed a tiny white dress from Kylie Jenner, 17, and is definitely one of the cutest things she’s worn.

Kourtney is rumored to be due in November/December, which means she is just about to round out her third trimester.

Kim's designer treat for North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly been sent over 200 pieces of designer clothing for North West, that they have yet to dress her in.

According to US Weekly, a source revealed that North's wardrobe includes clothes from Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang and Roberto Cavalli.

The insider said: "Kim and Kanye are grateful when designers send them some pieces.

"North loves clothes and getting ready to go out. It's a lot of fun."

The source then added that the 16-month-old even has a pair of half-carat Lorraine Schwartz earrings which are worth "well over $50,000".

They also revealed that Kim has stocked up on baby equipment and has several expensive strollers located around the world.

The source explained: "She has one in Paris and New York, and she keeps one at her sisters' houses.

Who is 'a hot, toxic, mess'?

Kanye West allegedly thinks Scott Disick is "a hot, toxic, mess" and has been partying "like the world is going to end."

Pic: Bang

The 'New Slaves' rapper is reportedly very concerned about his pregnant sister-in-law, as he thinks her long-term boyfriend, who was hospitalised for alcohol poisoning earlier this year, is "a hot, toxic, mess" and is partying "like the world is going to end."

Pic: Bang

A source close to the 37-year-old star, who has 15-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West, 33, told "Kanye would never leave Kim when she was pregnant, unless it was to bring money back home to the family.

Pic: Instagram

"Big money. He didn't leave Kim alone when she was pregnant unless he was clocking six figures."

The insider said the protective star doesn't understand why Scott, who already has son Mason, four, and daughter Penelope, two, with Kourtney, wants to party without his girlfriend, 35, as his philosophy is "when your girl is pregnant, guess what -- you're pregnant, too."

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' beauty Kourtney recently told Scott, 31, on the show that she wanted him to sober up or leave.

Pic: Instagram

She said: "Unless you want to be sober, then I don't want you here.

"If you want to die then you can continue to act this way."

Scott has been struggling since the tragic deaths of his mother, Bonnie, last October and father Jeffrey less than three months later in early January.

Kris steps down, Kendall steps out

Kris Jenner is reportedly to be asked to "step down" as Kendall Jenner's manager as the model is planning to move to Paris and establish herself away from her family.

The showbiz matriarch controls all her children's careers but as the 18-year-old beauty's modelling career goes from strength-to-strength, she wants to distance herself away from the Kardashian brand and is even considering relocating to Europe.

A source said: "She's moved out of the family home into her own LA apartment. With [sister] Kim [Kardashian West] and Kanye [West] living there, everything felt too crazy and she's keen to scale back her involvement in the reality show.

"She's thought to be considering a move to Paris, and there are whispers Kris may be asked to step down as her manager."

Kendall previously admitted to asking Kim not to attend her fashion shows and is said to feel "uncomfortable" about her sister's constant attention-seeking antics.

Pic: Instagram

The source explained: "Kendall loves Kim but feels uncomfortable with the fanfare that accompanies her.

Pic: Instagram

"She wants to be accepted by the industry on her own terms, which is impossible when Kim and Kanye are arriving in headline-grabbing outfits. Kim means the world to Kendall, and vice versa, but they increasingly belong in different worlds."

Pic: Instagram

Though Kendall has previously dated One Direction hunk Harry Styles and been romantically linked with Justin Bieber, insiders insist she isn't interested in having a celebrity boyfriend.

Pic: Instagram

The source told Britain's Grazia magazine: "Kendall is concentrating on her career. She isn't interested in becoming one half of a power-couple, she's more low-key than that."

The Kendall-Bieber connect

Kim Kardashian West's best friend insists Kendall Jenner had nothing to do with Selena Gomez's latest split from Justin Bieber.

Jonathan Cheban, 40, claims the 'Come & Get It' hitmaker, who reportedly dumped the Canadian singer after he had lunch with the reality TV star's younger sister in Paris behind her back, has no reason to be jealous of the 18-year-old model, and thinks Selena and Justin are "a good match."

The PR guru, who regularly appears on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' told "[Gomez and Bieber] are a great couple. I like them both. They're very cool and this is the best way to do a Hollywood relationship -- they're on for a few months, they break up."

Jonathan believes the 22-year-old actress and the 20-year-old singer will get back together again in the future.

Pic: Bang

He said: "Ultimately, if they loved each other, and they're settled down in a year or two, then they'll reconnect and keep it going. It seems like with the two of them, it's a forever thing. It does not end. It keeps going and going and I think it's awesome. They're a good match."

Pic: Bang

A source recently claimed the 'Rudderless' actress "doesn't trust Kendall's motives" and was furious with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, whom she first started dating in 2010, for taking the brunette beauty out for dinner while she was sightseeing in Paris late last month.

But asked about Kendall and Justin's friendship, Jonathan said: "The key word is friend."

When Kim does adorable

Kim Kardashian's daughter North West is hogging the front row on all high street fashion shows.

Mother-daughter duo has already stepped out in matching designer outfits and looks like North is keeping up with her mom.

Kim Kardashian really does see a lot of herself in her adorable 16-month old daughter North West.

Kim took to Instagram to post a flashback picture of herself as a baby, next to one of North, captioning the photos: 'ME/NORTH #MiniMe'.

We must say it's one of the most adorable pictures shared by the reality star.

Kanye designing wedding ring for North

Kanye West is designing a personalised diamond wedding ring for his and Kim Kardashian West's 15-month-old daughter North West.

The 36-year-old rapper is keen to create North West's first ever band, which will have the little one's name engraved on it and feature a diamond big enough to ensure she can wear it now.

Pic: Reuters

A source said: "He's in the process of designing her a one-of-a-kind diamond ring for her to wear on her wedding finger. It symbolises dada's love for his little angel.

"Call him crazy, but that's what he's doing. He says it's going to be princess cut with her name engraved in the band and will have the biggest diamond on it that she can possibly carry on her little finger."

Pic: Bang

The rapper has enlisted the help of jeweller Lorraine Schwartz - who created his wife and North's mother Kim Kardashian West's engagement ring - to create the special band, and he "doesn't care" if the gift seems a little extravagant.

The source added to "He will be the first man to put a ring on his girl's finger. He's waiting until she gets a little older and will have Lorraine make it to fit her little finger.

"He will do nothing short of spoiling her because that's what he wants to do.

Pic: Bang

"That little girl means everything to him and there's not a limit on what she can have. He's lucky to be doing it and incredibly thankful, too."

News of Kanye's gift comes shortly after it was revealed Kim has hired a tailor and stylist for North to ensure her little one has outfits which coordinate with her own.

A source said: "Kim has hired North her own personal tailor whose sole job it is to make mini versions of Kim's designer outfits and ensure they always co-ordinate.

"The tailor, who is also paid to act as North's stylist, works with Kanye and Kim's styling team to create her looks.

"Some are collaborations or commissions to designers themselves and others are created in-house."

She added: "I would never throw shade to my sissy on Twitter"

Khloé previously blasted Kim for sharing too many pictures of herself on Instagram.

Lamar sends Khloe flowers; Bruce Jenner dating again?

Bruce Jenner has sparked speculation he's dating again after he was spotted with a mystery brunette.

Pic: Bang

The former Olympian, 64, has fuelled speculation he's moved on from estranged wife Kris Jenner, 58, after he was spotted attending a Sir Elton John concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night with a mystery woman, who resembled his ex-spouse.

The pair were also joined by Bruce's eldest son Brandon, 33, from his second marriage, and his wife Leah, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Kris and Bruce - who got married in 1999 and have daughters Kendall, 18, and Kylie, 17, together - announced their separation last October.

Pic: Getty images

The matriarch - who also has Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob from a past relationship - filed for divorce from Bruce last month, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the end of their 23-year marriage.

A day after the papers were submitted to LA County Courthouse, Bruce responded to the legal documents and agreed to joint physical and legal custody of Kylie.

Pic: Getty Images

Meanwhile, Kris also has her sights set on finding love again as she recently admitted that it would be "amazing" for her to find a new boyfriend.

She said previously: "I want to definitely be in love, I like being in love, I think there's no better feeling in the world. So yeah, I mean that would be amazing."

Lamar Odom sends Khloe Kardashian flowers

Lamar Odom has been sending flowers to both Khloe Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner in an attempt to win back his estranged wife.

Pic: Bang

The 34-year-old basketball player still hopes to to win back his estranged wife, who filed for divorce from him last December, and regularly splashes out on her and her mother Kris Jenner's favourite blossoms to apologise for everything he put her through before they split.

A source said: "He sends her favourite flowers all the time just to make her smile.

Pic: Getty Images

"Kris has always held a special place in her heart for Lamar, so when he reached out to apologise to her too, she was like putty in his hands.

"Lamar knows that even if he earns Khloé's trust back, it's her mom who makes all the family decisions. He's thrilled they're talking again."

The former couple split following months of rumours Lamar was addicted to cocaine and cheating on the reality TV star with multiple different women.

Pic: Getty Images

But the source said he has changed a lot in recent months, explaining to America's OK! magazine: "Lamar is clean and sober now. He's been seeing a therapist and working out regularly, getting himself on the right track to win Khloé back."

The 30-year-old beauty recently ended her relationship with rapper French Montana, whom she started dating in April.

Kim laughs off rumours she forgot her daughter

Kim Kardashian West has laughed off rumours she forgot her 15-month-old daughter, North, in a hotel in Paris and was forced to return to collect her before driving to the airport.

Pic: Getty Images

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star insists she didn't accidentally leave baby North, 15 months, behind after checking out of Le Royal Monceau in Paris on Wednesday, despite being photographed returning from her car to collect the tot in the foyer of the luxurious hotel before driving to the airport to catch a flight back to Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old beauty defended herself on Twitter on Friday, writing: "Heard on the radio today some story I forgot my daughter at our hotel as I'm leaving for the airport. Are you kidding me?!?!?! LOL (sic)."

Pic: Getty Images

The brunette beauty, who is married to Kanye West, claims she only left the hotel without their little girl to make sure her car seat was installed correctly.

She explained: "I went to the car to make sure the car seat was in because the day before we had a car seat issue."

Pic: Instagram

She added: "Do u guys really think a 1year old would be inside the lobby by herself. Oh wait she was waiting to check out lol (sic)."

Kim recently confirmed she is "trying" to get pregnant again.

Pic: Bang

She said: "We're trying ... I guess it's, like, all in God's hands."

She added: "[Motherhood] has changed me so much.

"Just everything has been put into perspective and nothing really matters more than spending time with your family and only doing the things that are really important to you."

Kendall Jenner pushes back Kim

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is working hard to make a name for herself in the fashion industry, no not Kim Kardashian, it's Kendall Jenner.

Just 18-years-old, the daughter of Kris Jenner and her estranged former athlete husband Bruce, Kendall is already amassed a fortune of £4 million, that though, is about to get much more impressive.

The stunning teenager has come straight from an American reality TV show to wow fashionistas across the globe and is now so sought after for next season's catwalk shows that already she is being offered starring roles for January - the biggest at London Fashion Week.

And she is about to eclipse her elder sibling.

Unlike Kim, Kendal believes in less is more.

There are no set up pictures, no big interviews or photoshoots and definitely no commenting on her private life.

That alone is what has made her into this young woman who oozes class.
