Kim Kardashian and her baby daughter are both in great shape now but there was drama and tension leading up to the birth, and RadarOnline has all the new details.

As we exclusively revealed, Kim cried tears of pain and joy in the delivery room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on June 15 when the baby arrived several weeks early.

The events leading up to the birth were scary for the new mom and Baby Daddy Kanye West, who skipped his own listening party at MILK in Los Angeles as Kim rushed to the hospital.

Kim had “medical complications” several sources and outlets have confirmed. She previously had an infection that doctors were monitoring closely.

“Her doctor made the decision the baby needed to be delivered,” one source told People, which added the birth was natural and not by C-section.

But the baby weighed less than five pounds and that was also a cause for concern, even amidst the celebration in the delivery room.

The baby was placed in an incubator and carefully monitored, according to multiple sources. The infant’s name has not yet been revealed.

Kanye was with Kim the entire time and is thrilled.

"Yeah he was there at the hospital. He's so cute. He doesn't leave the room. He's, like, in love with the baby. It's so cute," Larsa Pippen told E!.

She also added that Kim is doing great.

Kim’s fast recovery is evident as she has had several friends visit already, and her mom Kris Jenner hinted, as reported, that more information about the baby would be revealed on her upcoming talk show.

And despite Kanye’s protest to the New York Times that this isn’t “America’s baby,” it looks like everyone else disagrees with him!

The baby’s birth has attracted international headlines with speculation rampant about what name her parents have chosen. Reports indicate the little girl is still unnamed!

Meanwhile as Kim is making a fast recovery, doctors would like to see the baby’s weight increase and are monitoring her closely.

As the personal drama is playing out, Kanye's new album was leaked online and is stirring much controversy as the video below details.
