Kim Kardashian Hired a Baby Body Double for Celebrity Baby North West?
It may sound crazy, but Kim Kardashian is reportedly thinking about hiring a body double for newborn baby North West to keep her safe.
Their new baby girl has been hidden from the public eye for five weeks since her birth: an impressive feat when considering the persistence of the media when a celebrity baby is born, so it’s clear that Kim and Kanye have strong protective feelings.
Kim even kept silent about the birth of her daughter, until recently speaking out about the tiny new addition to the Kardashian family, saying that becoming a mother was one of the “most exciting experiences of my life”.
An insider said of the idea: “It may seem slightly paranoid, but he’s deadly serious about it. Kanye’s terrified they could be the target of a kidnap attempt – or worse. There are a lot of crazy people out there and he keeps saying he’ll do whatever it takes to keep his family safe. He’s always been a worrier. But now he’s a father, he says he isn’t prepared to take any chances – with anything. That’s why he’s planning to employ body doubles to act as decoys for the three of them.”
To those of us that live in the real world, the idea of a body double for a newborn baby seems ridiculous, but to those living in their own bubble in the land of celebrity it probably sounds sane.
Being a new parent brings with it a fierce protectiveness, which must only be exaggerated when used to the kind of paparazzi lifestyle, which increasingly includes intrusion into private lives as well as hassling and abuse. Even so, this may be a step too far.
