Kanye West won`t watch Kim Kardashian give birth

Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West, who is expecting his first child with socialite Kim Kardashian, won`t watch her giving birth to their child.

He has no intention of being by her side during labour.

"Emotionally, Kanye wants to be there for Kim throughout the labour, but he`s just not sure he`s up to it," quoted a source as saying.

"He is 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 will just add to Kim`s anxiety during labour.

"Kim`s starting to think that she`d rather have her sisters and mom as her birth partners," added the source.
