Kanye West doesn’t want Kim Kardashian to go back to work after having their second baby — at least, not just yet, according to new reports.

The 38-year-old rapper has been pleading with his wife to take a break from working for a while after having an exhausting and extremely difficult pregnancy with the couple’s son, Saint West. The baby boy was born on December 5 and joins two-year-old sister North West.

Kardashian, 35, typically has a packed schedule, but her hubby wants her to slow down and rest for a while.

“Kim went through a lot this time round with her second pregnancy,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She is absolutely exhausted, with her busy schedule not helping. She still wants to fulfill work commitments that she really has an excuse to duck out of. Kanye has told her that now is the perfect time to rest up, put her feet up and just relax.”

Kanye is reportedly helping with baby duty, as is a nurse the couple hired. Her family will pitch in too, but Kim is a hard woman to keep down.

“He said he will pitch in with baby duty, as well a nurse and all the family, including Kris, Kourtney and Khloé, who will all step in when needed,” the insider said. “But it’s not in Kim’s nature to stop working or looking after her baby. She hates standing still, doing nothing, and feels that’s just a complete waste of time.”

Hopefully Kim will listen to reason — and Kanye — and take it easy, though, at least for the first few months. She definitely needs it!
