The 32 year-old, who is set to give birth in July, might be excited about becoming a mum but clearly the prospect of sleepless nights impacting on her beauty regime may be on her mind as well, as she asks the doctor about the benefits of scoffing down placenta.

“Don’t you think it makes you look younger?” she is seen asking. While the doctor didn't exactly give Kim the affirmative answer she appeared to be searching for he did admit there were certain health benefits. 

Seeimingly convinced she added: “I really want to do it,”

Kim's not the first star to try the unusual practice, Mad Men actress January Jones ran into criticism when she admitted to eating the placenta, which has high levels of vitamins, especially vitamin B6 to help with post birth depression, following the birth of her son Xander in 2011.

Speaking to Glamour magazine the blonde claimed: "It's a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue," 

"I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I'd highly suggest it to any pregnant woman."

Looks like Kim's taking your advice January!

While Kanye West wasn't present for the gender revelation, the reality TV star was clearly thinking of her beau when she found out she was expecting a little girl.

"Who doesn't want a girl?" she exclaimed during the ultrasound where she was joined by sisters Khloe and Kourtney and mum Kris Jenner.

"They are the best and I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl."
