Kim Kardashian in July 2006 and in May 2012
She's popped! The second-most anticipated pregnancy of the year is over and Baby Kardashian finally entered the world on June 15th - 5 weeks early. Although no-one save close friends and family have clapped eyes on the baby girl yet, and there's no word on what it's going to be called (Kheryl? Kharlotte?) we do know that she's said to resemble Kim and both are doing well.
But just how did Kim Kardashian become the second most famous celebrity mother-to-be in the world? (Sorry Kim - even you can't beat K-Middy's sprog). We've put together an handy cut-out-and-keep guide to the rise and rise (and rise) of the world's most famous reality TV star.
Kim is born to Kris and Robert Kardashian in LA. Robert is the lawyer in the infamous OJ Simpson trial and was a close friend to OJ throughout. Kris divorces Robert in 1991 but remains close to him up until his death in 2003. In 1994, Kim meets Paris Hilton and the notorious socialite twosome is born.
Kim marries music producer Damon Thomas, famous for working with Pink, R Kelly and Chris Brown. The two divorce after 4 years. Damon hasn't been the kindest about Kim saying "She can't write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things in order to validate herself in the media. That's a fame-whore to me. It's just not cool at all." Ergh.
After singer Brandy appears on a worst-dressed list she hires Kim as a stylist, who then begins a full-time job as a personal shopper to the stars - including Lindsay Lohan. Kim also begins dating Brandy's brother Ray-J -which, as we all know - doesn't end up spectacularly well. In 2006, Kim and her sister Kourtney and Khloe open Dash, a clothing boutique in Calabasas.
