Kim Kardashian Heads To Europe With Baby North (And More Suitcases Than You Could Imagine)

Kim Kardashian is Europe-bound! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was spotted arriving at LAX airport with her daughter North West and 12 suitcases in tow.

Kim, or Keeks as she likes to be known, is set to marry her fiancé Kanye West next weekend in a lavish ceremony in Florence, Italy. But first, Kim K is heading to Paris where the couple will host their rehearsal dinner for family and friends.

When she pitched up at the Los Angeles airport pushing baby North in a pram, the 33-year-old was wearing a black leather blazer and a black jumpsuit and sunglasses.



For months the world believed that the couple would marry in the French capital, but last week it emerged they had booked a 16th century fortress called Fort Belvedere in Florence.

But according to Mail Online, Italian officials have said Kim and Kanye's wedding will not include a legally binding ceremony. Does that mean the couple have already exchanged vows in California?

A spokeswoman for Florence City Council apparently said authorities hadn't received a request for a civil contract, which under Italian law has to be registered well in advance.

Meanwhile, Kanye has been busy explaining the couple's connection to the Italian city. Basically, he believes North was conceived there. Too much information, eh?!

Speaking to Le Nazione newspaper, West said: "I adore Florence. I love Italy and Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the bank of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito.

"I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces. It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world - for me the most beautiful in Europe."

WANT MORE KIM K? Well you're in luck...
