Just a day after Kim Kardashian gave birth to a healthy baby girl, her mother Kris Jenner dropped hints that the newborn might make her television debut on Jenner's new talk show.
The 57-year-old was attending the Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday when well-wishers surrounded her with questions about Kardashian’s baby.
Jenner, who was attending the event to promote her new talk show ‘Kris,’ which will premiere on July 15, asked fans to tune in to the show to get all the inside scoop on the newborn, Radar Online reported.
“When someone asked Kris if the baby would make an appearance on the show, she demurely said ‘you will have to watch,’” an onlooker told Radar.
“Kris was asked if she had any pictures of the baby, and she revealed she did, but didn’t want to share with anyone. Kris was absolutely loving all of the attention she was getting, and was absolutely milking it,” the onlooker added.
Kardashian’s boyfriend Kanye West had earlier stated that he does not want his daughter to appear on television. In a New York Times interview, the rapper said that he does not want to talk to the media about his family and would try his best to protect their privacy.
“Well, I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby,” he said.
But a Daily Mail source added that West might find it hard to convince his girlfriend to keep the baby out of the media glare, and especially from appearing on Jenner’s new show.
“If Kris wants Kim and the baby to appear on the show, she will make it happen. Kim has a very hard time ever saying no to her mom. She wants Kris’ talk show to be a success, and wants to help any way she possibly can.
“This could put Kim at odds with Kanye, but Kris isn’t worried about that. Kris knows Kim will do it in the end because she is so close to her,” the source told the Daily Mail.
