Leave it to Kimye to pre-select their baby's gender. The infamous couple, who documented their difficulty getting pregnant on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and just recently shared the good news that they are, indeed, expecting, reportedly went through the pricey IVF gender selection process to ensure that they will have a boy (which they just confirmed days ago).

"She only had boy embryos implanted," a source close to Kardashian told Us Weekly of the IVF procedure, which can start at $17,000.

"Kanye and Kim are so excited to complete their family," another source added. "Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete, he wanted a little boy, an heir," an insider close to West told the magazine.

For Kim, this was always a part of the plan. "Kim always wanted two kids," a friend of the reality star explained. "A girl and a boy."

When it came down to it, though, Kim just really wanted a healthy child no matter what after the difficulty she experienced trying to get pregnant again.

"Kim would have happily taken a healthy baby, but being able to choose the sex is the cherry on top!" a source close to Kim noted.

Right after she announced she's expecting, Kim told Us that the pregnancy itself has been tough, too. "I can barely get out of bed," she said. "But it's so worth it. I don't really care."

It looks like these two are on the road to having the perfect family they always wanted, and we can only imagine the insanely stylish holiday cards to come.
