Sources: Kim Kardashian, Kanye West used IVF gender selection

WASHINGTON — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently announced that baby No. 2 is on the way.

But now we’re learning that they are dictating the gender.

Sources tell US magazine that the 34-year-old Kardashian only had male embryos implanted during an IVF gender-selection process earlier this spring.

The procedure reportedly costs $17,000 or more.

The push for a male child comes after their first child was born a girl.

Their daughter, North West, is now two years old.
