Given the amount of time that Kim Kardashian has been living her life on screen, it wouldn’t be strange to think we know just about everything about her. Of course, that’s not true—but the reality star-entrepreneur does show us much of the good, the bad, and the ugly of her day-to-day existence.
But even six years after welcoming her daughter, North West, we’re still learning more about the circumstances surrounding her birth. Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewers will remember that there was a bit of drama surrounding North’s brith, as Kim secretly rushed to the hospital and mom, Kris Jenner, and her sisters tried to figure out how to handle the situation as calmly (and paparazzi-free) as possible.
On her BFF Jonathan Cheban’s podcast, FoodGod: OMFG, Kim revealed that she made sure to squeeze in some grooming and a snack before North’s arrival. “I go, ‘I need a McGriddle at McDonald’s,’” Kim said she asked Cheban, per People. “‘Do you mind driving me to get a bikini wax?’”
“I had to actually, like, squeeze her inside of the car and pull her out to get this wax,” Cheban said. “And then afterwards we go to get a McGriddle in McDonald’s, and we’re racing so fast.”
Kim says that after she got home from her wax, doctors informed her that she needed to get to the hospital for delivery because of preeclampsia, a high blood pressure condition that can be dangerous for expecting moms. “My nails were dark,” she said. “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.’”
Obviously, everything worked out just fine. North West was born happy and healthy on June 15, 2013, and she’s been iconic ever since.
