Not even labour can stop Kim K from getting her nails done.

In an interview with her best friend, Jonathan Cheban, on his podcast  Foodgod: OMFG, the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star revealed that she made a few pitstops before giving birth to her eldest child, North West, People reports.

“I go, ‘I need a McGriddle at McDonald’s,'” Kim recalled. “‘Do you mind driving me to get a bikini wax?'”

“I actually had to squeeze her inside of the car and pull her out to get this wax,” Jonathan added.

While dodging the paparazzi, Kim got an urgent call from her doctors, Yahoo reports.

“So we’re racing trying to ditch them and then at that moment I get the call saying, ‘Hey, you have pre-eclampsia, you have to deliver right now,” the mom revealed.

“I remember the exact day,” Jonathan went on to say.

“Because I dropped you off, and I had a meeting. And I left for like three hours and in that time, you ended up getting to the hospital.

“Like literally because I had dropped you off after the wax had happened that day and then it turned into pandemonium.”

After returning home the reality star realised her nails weren’t up to standard, Entertainment Tonight reveals.

“My nails were dark. It was when I was still in my Linkin Park after-dark phase with my Burgundy nails.

“And I was like, ‘No, no, no, I’m having a girl like I really need a nice light pink nail for delivery.’

“So I told the doctor, ‘Are you sure I have to deliver right now, can you give me like two hours?’ And he was like, ‘Fine meet me in two hours,’” she said.

At the time, Kanye was on a flight to Switzerland.

“He decided to go to Art Basel in Switzerland, and I said, ‘Tell our security just as soon as he lands, ‘Kim’s in labour and just come straight to the hospital.

“I thought I was going to have the baby before he got there, but he made it there and everything.”

The business mogul went on to reveal that she tried her best to keep her labour under wrap, calling a friend to take her to hospital.

“I laid down in the back seat of her car and I parked my car at the Beverly Hills Hotel,” Kim recalled. “I fit into her Prius in the backseat.”

Kim and Kanye are now parents to four kids, North West (6), Saint (3), one-year-old Chicago and four-month-old Psalm.
