Kim’s life has been documented on reality TV for more than five years, but should her baby with Kanye West be on full display as well? Experts tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively how this super famous pair should handle their baby’s publicity.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are each huge celebrities in their own right, which means their baby is going to be mega famous right out of the womb. But how they decide to expose their baby to the overwhelming publicity could affect the child for life — good or bad.
HollywoodLife.com spoke to Dr. Gilda Carle, relationship expert and 30-Second Therapist on the Today Show, who revealed that Kim and Kanye should be careful how they parade their baby around on reality TV like Kim’s mom Kris Jenner reportedly wants to do.
“Private time is essential for good emotional health,” Dr. Gilda said. “Baby must learn that everything in life is not a performance. Otherwise, baby may eventually have issues with being alone and quiet, exploring its inner thoughts, or even decide what it wants in life, as it grows.”
Growing Up In Front Of The Cameras Isn’t Healthy For Kim & Kanye’s Baby
Dr. Carole Lieberman, Psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, also agreed that reality TV isn’t the best or most stable environment for a family.
“A child needs a very stable, safe, loving environment. We’ve seen how reality shows break couples apart, and break families apart,” Dr. Carole said, and if the reality cameras continue to follow Kim’s pregnancy and baby into his or her childhood, it could be damaging in the long run.
“The child will feel used; not loved for him or herself, but what he or she adds to their reality show,” Dr. Carole said..
Since Kanye’s best friend Jay-Z keeps his daughter Blue Ivy almost entirely out of the public eye, and Kim’s sister Kourtney lets her kids Mason and Penelope live their lives almost entirely in front of the reality TV cameras, it will be interesting to see their approach to parenthood!
