Jonathan Cheban disappointed to miss Kim Kardashian West's baby birth

Kim Kardashian West's best friend is disappointed to have missed the birth of her son.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star welcomed son Saint into the world on December 5 - almost three weeks before her due date - and Jonathan Cheban admits he was hoping she'd have delivered the one even earlier while he was still in Los Angeles.

And Jonathan - who is now in Miami with girlfriend Anat Popovsky and is planning to jet off to Israel for the New Year - is now unsure whether he'll be able to meet the baby before the end of 2015.

He told DailyMail.com: "I was hoping she would give birth when I was there for three weeks filming cause the last time she gave birth I was there as well.

"So I said, 'Usually I pop it out of you somehow', but now I don't even know if I'm going to be able to make it before the new year."

Though he hasn't seen Kim - who also has two-year-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - since she gave birth, Jonathan revealed his 35-year-old pal is "doing great".

Kim, 35, was forced to deliver her son on December 5 after she reportedly suffered from placenta accreta, a condition which means the placenta remains attached to the womb.

However, despite the difficult labour, baby Saint was born weighing a healthy 8 pound 1 ounce.
