Today, Kim Kardashian West is a mother of four but back in June 2013, she was preparing for the arrival of her first child North West.

Like any first-time mother, it was an exciting occasion for the reality star and she was determined to look her best.

A heavily pregnant Kim was hanging out with Jonathan Cheban when her doctor called her to let her know that the baby needed to come out immediately due to her preeclampsia diagnosis.

Upon returning home, the reality star said she realized that her nails were dark and she didn't want to have a baby while wearing that color of polish.

And I was like, ‘Oh, no no, I’m having a girl. I really need a nice light pink nail for delivery.’ So I told the doctor, ‘Are you sure I have to deliver right now? Can you give me like two hours?’ And he was like, ‘Fine, meet me in two hours.’

Thankfully, despite the two-hour delay, little North West was born beautiful and healthy.

Should you do the same?

Nurse and midwife Judith Bishop explained on BabyCenter that getting a manicure during pregnancy isn't necessarily a dangerous thing to do as long as all the clippers and other tools are properly sterilized.

If you prefer, you may also bring your own tools. But as long as the salon follows the required procedures for hygiene, you should be fine.

Having a baby, especially for the first time, is a pretty big deal. So we can't blame Kim K for wanting to look picture perfect.
