The $11m mansion where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will raise their baby... and it's not even the biggest on the block
It is their first home together, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are pulling out all the stops.
The pair, who are expecting a baby together, have shelled out $11million for an extravagant Bel Air mansion where they will raise their child together.
The luxurious home sits in a private gated community in the exclusive California suburb, and is a whopping 10,000 square feet, according to TMZ.

The website report that the couple have already gutted the interior and are planning to add an extra 4,000 feet to complete their dream home.
A source told TMZ the new home will be ‘an Italian-style villa, with a gym, movie theater, full hair and make-up salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool.’
Not forgetting a nursery of course.
The stunning infinity pool is visible in new shots of the property, which also has a pool house and large grassy lawn.
The mansion also has a grand driveway and dramatic entrance, as well as plenty of windows to let in the light and a spacious garage.
The pair will join A-list neighbour Jennifer Aniston, Los Angeles Clippers basketball player Chris Paul, and founder of the Girls Gone Wild entertainment franchise Joe Francis as the famous names in the neighbourhood.
Kanye, 35, is well known for his love of interior design and will no doubt be keen to put his stamp on their first home together.
News of the couple's nest-building came as Kim was seen out in Miami on Monday, covering her bump in a billowing sheer tunic top, under a waterfall jacket.
And she opted for comfortable loose white trousers, and a fierce pair of caged heels.
Kim was joined by her friend Jonathan Cheban as they spent a day wandering around the shops in Miami.
Kim, 32, recently left the Florida city after completing filming her reality show, but returned over the weekend for a bikini photoshoot on the beach.

The couple surprised many when they reportedly turned down a $3 million offer for the first photos of their baby.
A source close to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star told gossip website TMZ.com that she and the Otis rapper have been flooded with lucrative offers for their child's first pictures and were offered $3million from one publication outside the US.
Kim has already been offered $250,000 to host a pregnancy website after being approached by David Dginguerian, an Armenian filmmaker, about working with a planned membership-only website called MyPregnancy.com.

It is unclear if Kim will sign up as it was recently revealed that she and Kanye, 35, are reportedly planning to share the pregnancy and their adjustment to parenthood with their fans through a show on E!
E! Entertainment network president Suzanne Kolb previously said: 'Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting.
'Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottles and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear.'
