In the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian took viewers behind the scenes of her Met Gala preparation. Kim didn't hold back, either. Not only did she share that she'd be willing to pee herself and have Kendall Jenner or Kylie Jenner wipe it up, the reality star also revealed she almost missed the birth of her fourth child, Psalm West, to attend the event.
Kim has spoken openly about how much landing the cover of Vogue meant to her and, in case you didn't know, it's fashion tradition that the May cover star attends the Met Gala. In 2019, Kim landed her first solo Vogue cover for the May issue. She prepared for the big event with iconic designer Thierry Mugler for almost a full year. As the Met Gala inched closer, however, Kim and her husband, Kanye West, realized Psalm's due date would fall right around the same time as the Gala.
Though conflicted about traveling to New York City for the Met Gala so close to her surrogate's due date, Kim ultimately decided to attend. “I just have to get to the Met and back before the baby comes. [The surrogate] is due in eight days, but I’m gonna stay committed to the Met," she explained on KUWTK. "I mean, it has taken eight months to get our Met look perfect, and I committed to it and I can’t miss this.”
The Met Gala, which was held on May 3, was a success for Kim. She returned to L.A. ASAP and her son was born on May 9. To make sure she was prepared for anything, though, Kim made sure Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian were ready to rush to the hospital if her surrogate went into labor.
“My attorney has my sister’s number," Kim said during the episode. "Because I’m gonna be with two of my sisters and my mom and my husband. Khloé is hoping that this will happen while I’m gone because she wants the baby.” Luckily, though, Kim and Kanye made it back with ample time before Psalm's birth.
