Kim Kardashian couldn't deliver her baby in a VIP birthing suite.
The reality TV titan ? who gave birth to her first daughter last Saturday ? went into labour weeks early and when she was checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles all the premium rooms were taken.
Kim (32) had her sights set on a $4 000 (R40 000)-a-night suite at the hospital but when she went into labour there were none free. But someone who did get a room was the partner of Los Angeles Lakers player Dwight Howard, according to gossip site TMZ.
Dwight's girlfriend, thought to be Christine Vest, reportedly gave birth to the sportsman's fifth child last weekend.
Kim's boyfriend met Dwight as he paced around the maternity wing of the hospital and the pair "got along great" as they both waited to become fathers. The rapper is even believed to have given the hoop shooter a preview of his new album, Yeezus.
Kim and her daughter are now believed to have left the hospital.
According to reports, mother and daughter were collected by Kanye (36) and the family left the hospital quietly via the back entrance.
It’s believed the trio are staying with Kim's mother, Kris Jenner, at the family home in Calabasas as the couple's Beverly Hills mansion isn’t ready yet.
