Kanye West is turning out to be the most doting daddy, just like we knew he would be. Sources say he’s barely left baby North’s side (partly because every time he leaves the house he yells at the paps). But there’s one thing he won’t do for his daughter: Kanye will not change North’s diapers. An insider says flatly, “He’s not changing diapers.”
Aw come on, Yeezus, really? Changing diapers is a parental right of passage. And if you’ve got a breastfeeding newborn it’s not nearly as gross as you’d think. It’s a little sweet, actually. (Whatever, I was a googly-eyed-in-love new mom.) But seriously, if Kim is breastfeeding as much as they say she is, North’s diapers aren’t going to stink. It’s one of the secret perks of breastfeeding — baby’s poo smells better.
It’s later, when the baby starts eating solids, that you’ll start wishing you could hire out the diaper changing. But let’s get back to Kanye and his supposed no-change ways. What is that about? There’s something… unmanly about refusing to change a diaper. If you think it’s too icky, you’re just a big baby yourself. What’s the worst that could happen? You might accidentally touch the poo? Good grief, just wash your damn hands if that happens. Yeezus Cripes. And if you get it on your fancy clothes 1. what the hell is your problem and 2. yes, it’s a protein stain but the drycleaner can probably still get that out.
Ugh, dads who won’t change diapers. I don’t care what else they’re willing to do. The same source says Kanye holds North all the time and won’t leave her side for more than an hour. But it’s the tough shit, literal and metaphorical, that really proves your mettle as a parent. I think a man who won’t change diapers is a man who doesn’t like getting his hands dirty — doesn’t like dealing with anything difficult, messy, or uncomfortable. Know what I mean?
Kanye explored some difficult, messy, and uncomfortable territory when he made his last album. So I hope the rumor isn’t true and he really is willing to get his hands dirty.
