Pregnant Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West in Paris (Jan. 11, 2013)

*Kanye West reportedly doesn’t want to watch Kim Kardashian give birth to their baby because he faints at the sight of blood.

The rapper is expecting his first child with the reality TV star and while he wants to be there for her, he isn’t sure he can be in the delivery room for the birth.

”Emotionally, Kanye wants to be there for Kim throughout the labor, but he’s just not sure he’s up to it,” a source told Closer magazine. “He’s embarrassed about it, but Kanye has always fainted at the sight of blood. And he feels very squeamish at the thought of watching the birth. The truth is, Kanye is scared he’ll just add to Kim’s anxiety during labor.

”He suggested he could stick to pacing outside the delivery room – but Kim has jokingly branded him a ‘wimp’.”

The source continued: ”Kim’s starting to think that she’d rather have her sisters and mom as her birth partners.”

Kim, 32, was in the room when Kourtney gave birth to her two children, Mason, three, and six-month-old Penelope.
