A source confirms to omg! that parents-to-be Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have plunked down $11 million for a sprawling mansion in gated Bel Air, California, just six months before they’re set to get a visit from the stork. TMZ reports that the couple purchased the 10,000-square-foot residence weeks ago – before the world knew about their baby news – and immediately began renovating it, giving it an extra 4,000-square-feet of space.
“It’s so exciting for them,” a source tells People. “The house is gorgeous. And they really wanted and needed the privacy.”
The new home is not only safely tucked away from prying eyes, but it's also a good 15 miles away from Calabasas, where Kardashian's momager, Kris Jenner, lives with husband Bruce Jenner and their two teen daughters. Although the distance may not seem far, in L.A. traffic that could translate to quite a drive.
