West wants to christen child North

Kanye West wants to call his baby North.

The 'Stronger' hitmaker and girlfriend Kim Kardashian will welcome their first child into the world in July and the rapper wants to show his sense of humour by naming the tot North West.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Kanye's ego is something else, so he's quite serious about the title.

"He also has a sense of humour though and knows how his self-indulgence is seen by the general public. It's half tongue-in-cheek, half what Kanye probably feels is true."

Meanwhile, pregnant Kim has admitted she has begun to "slow down" following her recent health scare, which saw her briefly hospitalised after falling ill on a flight from Paris to Los Angeles.

She told 'Extra': "I got sick. It's hard when a lot is changing in your body and you get sick and you are travelling and so much is going on. It's tough.

"[I'm] trying to take it easy on the travelling a little bit. It's not easy being pregnant, I have to tell you."

However, the 32-year-old beauty isn't quite ready to give up her high-heeled shoes for more comfortable footwear just yet.

She added: "I'm trying to wear flats a little more. But not now."
