The tabloids were thrilled to announce on June 10 that rapper Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian, parents of daughter North West, were expecting a baby boy. A source told US Weekly that “to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir,” managing to disgust plenty of women.

Today, though, US Weekly reported that West didn’t leave anything to chance; the couple paid big bucks to undergo an IVF gender-selection process, in which male embryos were isolated and implanted exclusively. It turns out West really wanted that male heir.
