While Kim Kardashian's pregnancy with Kanye West might not have been planned, her good friend Brittny Gastineau says the child was “meant to be.” The reality star was still married to Kris Humphries when her rapper boyfriend unexpectedly announced to the crowd at one of his concerts that the 32-year-old fashionista was with his child.

Now in the eighth season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” momager Kris Jenner is thrilled she will be welcoming a third grandchild into the family and even set up a nursery in her house for baby Kimye, but Kardashian breaks down in tears telling her mother she’s still married to Humphries and pregnant with another man’s baby.

Kardashian's pregnancy was anything but easy. She faced scrutiny practically the entire time, because called fat by various ill-wishers. When she didn’t want to be photographed toward the end of her pregnancy the reality star said the paparazzi lashed out and threatened her life.

But amid all the drama Gastineau told Us Weekly during an interview that it was all worth it. "It is not weird at all [to see them as parents]," she told the magazine. "Everything is normal. ... It's all meant to be. They have been amazing."  

“I've been there every day," the 29-year-old added about visiting the new family. "I'm so happy to be an auntie."

Though Kardashian has been uncharacteristically quiet since her daughter was born, sister Khloe and mom Kris Jenner have shared their outpouring of love for baby Kimye. "I cannot even begin 2 describe the miracle that is now a part of our family," Khloe tweeted on Sunday. "Mommy/baby are healthy & resting. We appreciate all the love."

"We are all good and extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby," she gushed to Showbiz Tonight at the Daytime Emmys. "She's doing great and beautiful. So very exciting."

Kardashian and West have not yet revealed the name of their newborn, thought it's been widely rumored they are calling her Kaidence Donda West, or "Kai," according to an article from Media Takeout.
