LONDON - Kim Kardashian-West has reportedly forked out a whopping $550,000 on a lavish nursery and baby goods.
The 37-year-old reality star and her husband Kanye West are currently expecting their third child, who will be born via a surrogate mother, and it has now been claimed they have spared no expense when it comes to making sure the new arrival is fully catered for.
According to sources, Kardashian-West and her 40-year-old spouse - with whom she already has North, four, and Saint, two - have splashed the cash on goods including a Swarovski-encrusted rocking horse and a $170,000 teddy bear.
It has also been claimed the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has had items including a luxurious velvet crib by designer Dolce Notte, as well as a hand-painted cradle, a silk bassinet and matching wardrobe and chair - reportedly amounting to another $40,000 - imported from Italy.
A source said: "Kim's also hand-sourced some of the world's most expensive toys for her newborn, including a $137,000 Swarovski-covered rocking horse, a $170,000 Steiff Louis Vuitton teddy bear and a limited edition Suommo Dodo solid gold dummy costing $96,000."
Kardashian-West is also believed to have gotten her hands on a number of designer and diamond-encrusted toys for her little girl, and sources claim even Kanye has told her to scale back her spending.
They added to Closer magazine: "Even Kanye's told her to stop spending as she's out of control!"
It comes after it was claimed last week that Kardashian-West and Kanye's surrogate is set to give birth "any day now", and the couple "can't wait to bring their baby home".
Their decision to go through a surrogate for their third child came after Kardashian-West suffered complications with her two pregnancies, experiencing early-onset preeclampsia with North and further troubles during labour with Saint.
