IN CASE YOU were living under a rock this past weekend, the biggest news in the world was not that the most moderate candidate, reformist Hasan Rowhani, won a landslide victory in the Iranian presidential election, but that Kim Kardashian reportedly gave birth a month early to a baby girl and that babydaddy Kanye West was actually there to witness it.

Given Kanye's high opinion of himself, espoused most recently in yesterday's endless New York Times piece, we're surprised he didn't deliver the baby himself.

Perhaps even give birth.

For what might be the first time in their adult lives, the couple was keeping silent yesterday, but Kim's sister Khloe appears to have let a rather cryptic cat out of the bag on Twitter.

"I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love," she tweeted yesterday.

She quickly followed with a second tweet: "More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now."

In said interview with the Times, Kanye said he didn't like talking about the arrival of his child.

"Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby," he said.

So naive.

Miguel kick update

Khyati Shah, the woman who was kicked by Miguel during a Billboard Music Awards performance, continues to suffer cognitive difficulties and has yet to receive any assistance from the R&B singer nearly a month after the incident, her attorney said.

Doctors continue to evaluate Khyati's injuries, but the exchange student from New Zealand has memory-loss issues and has been unable to sit for final exams, attorney Vip Bhola said.

He said that representatives for the singer and the awards show are practically daring him to sue.

Miguel's representatives have said that Miguel is concerned for Khyati's well-being and reached out to Bhola to see if they could help.

Bhola said that while he's talked with Miguel's attorney, no assistance for his client has been offered.
