Kourtney Kardashian used her hands to give birth to baby Penelope
The Kardashians are a close family, sharing everything with their television audience – and each other.
And last night’s grand finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was no different, with the birth of little Penelope Scotland witnessed by the entire clan.
Sisters Kim and Khloe, brother Rob Kardashian, younger half siblings Kendall and Kylie Jenner, mother Kris and long-term boyfriend Scott Disick were all inside the delivery room to see Kourtney Kardashian pulling the little girl out with her hands.
“Kourtney just loves to pull out her own children,” said Khloe after the birth.
“It’s such a magical feeling to say hello to my baby girl,” said Kourtney Kardashian, who remained calm throughout the delivery, although mother Kris Jenner was in tears.
“Watching my daughter give birth, it reminds me, it doesn’t get better than this,” she told the cameras.
Luckily, Kourtney Kardashian’s two-and-a-half year old son Mason loved his new sibling, although seemed a little confused by her name.
“Her name is Penelope,” Kourtney Kardashian told Mason.
“No, her name is sister,” he replied.
Despite her calmness at the birth, Kourtney Kardashian was earlier a little tearful at the prospect of the birth.
“I’m feeling very emotional and anxious. Event though I’ve done all this before,” she said.
Earlier, the Kardashians celebrated the impending new arrival by holding Kourtney a swanky baby shower, complete with flamingos in the pool and pink candy floss.
Among the guests was Kim Kardashian’s beau Kanye West who looked slightly out of place among the hoards of women.
“It feels really good for Kanye to be here with my family,” said Kim Kardashian.
“Just to see how close of a family we are. I really feel like I’m in a great relationship but I’m not going to rush it.”
She was also thrilled that sister Khloe has given her approval to the relationship after having a famously tricky time with Kim Kardashian’s ex Kris Humphries.
“I’m happy that you guys are finally doing your thing. You understand each other’s lives,” Khloe Kardashian told Kanye West in a private moment at the shower, adding she thinks the match is one of “Kim’s healthiest relationships”.
Kanye West responded: “I think I’m very content. In every way.”
