Kim Kardashian hopes Kris Humphries is gone before baby shows up


Kim Kardashian would really like to be divorced before her baby with Kanye West is born — so she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on the “Today” show Tuesday.

Kardashian’s divorce, which she filed after 72 days of marriage, has been dragging on for more than a year now, although the judge said last year that the couple would be split for good in 2013.

Gifford, however, brought up the idea that there was a good chance the baby, due in July, would be born before the divorce was in the books.

“I hope not,” Kim said, dragging out the “o” in the word “hope.” She doesn’t think future ex-husband Kris Humphries will make a stink about the child. “I’m really hopeful. I’m just hoping to get through it sooner than later. We’re just — it’s a process.”

And what about those who would say she’s modeling bad behavior by getting pregnant with someone else’s baby, Kotb wondered.

“It’s been a year and a half since I filed,” said the reality-TV star, who appeared on the show along with older sis Kourtney. “So I think that, you know, I definitely waited six months before I started a relationship.” (Six months is the minimum amount of time that can pass before a divorce is final in California.)

But divorce or no divorce, she said she has extra reason to be happy about having a baby.

“I’m 32 years old and I’m facing, you’ll see ... there’s a lot of fertility issues that I haven’t really spoke about until this season, so it’s kind of a miracle that I did get pregnant.

“I think God puts things in front of you and places things in your life for a reason and as much as I would love to be divorced and we’re working on it and I hope it’s sooner than later but you know, you can’t, what are you going to do?”
