Kim Kardashian's close friend Larsa Pippen has revealed that Kanye West is so "in love" with his new daughter that he won't leave the baby's side.

The rap superstar became a first time father on Saturday (15 June) after Kim gave birth to a healthy baby girl, weeks before her July due date.

And despite his highly anticipated new album Yeezus being released this week, Kanye has apparently ditched his work commitments to stay with Kim and their tiny tot in hospital.

Speaking to E! News last night (17 June), Larsa said that she has been to visit her BFF and her new baby, adding that they are both doing well.

Larsa also said that the newborn is extremely sweet and that Kanye is totally infatuated with her.

"He's so cute," Larsa said of Kanye. "He doesn't leave the room. He's, like, in love with the baby."

Although Kanye has been somewhat distracted from the release of his sixth studio album, the promotional cogs are still turning in his absence.

Yesterday, a short trailer starring Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend, Scott Disick, was released in preparation for the Yeezus LP, which sees Scott play the role of a serial killer thought to be based on the character of Patrick Bateman in the film American Psycho.

Kim has been keeping a noticeably low profile since welcoming her first child into the world, while many celebrities have sent their congratulations - including Beyoncé!

Superstar singer Beyoncé posted a brief heartfelt message on her website for Kanye and Kim yesterday, along with a picture of the couple gazing at each other.

There is still no word yet on what baby KimYe will be called, although Larsa admitted that she and Kim had been running through potential names.

Surely it's going to begin with a 'K'?
