Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner, on the other hand, is reportedly the most excited about the baby and the possibilities it could bring.
"Probably the most excited person is Kris. She let us all know that this will be the theme for a new reality show, the best Kardashian show ever. They are going to document everything about Kim's pregnancy, but I don't know how Kanye feels about that," a source told HollywoodLife.com
