KIM Kardashian has confirmed she is expecting a baby girl.

The 32-year-old star - who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July - found out the gender of her forthcoming little one at a doctor's appointment for her 19-week check-up, which has now been aired on her reality show, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

During the episode - the eighth season premiere of the programme - Kim's mother Kris Jenner asks: "Do you see a little peepee?"

Physician Dr. Paul Crane responds: "I don't see any peepees. I'm thinking it's a girl."

Kim asks: "What's the percentage?"

And Dr. Crane responds: "99 plus."

Kim then adds: "99 plus? So I can tell people it's a girl?"

The brunette beauty is delighted to be expecting a girl and admitted Kanye, 35, has "always wanted" a daughter.

She said: "I'm so excited we're having a girl. Who doesn't want a girl? I think they are the best. I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl."

The news was revealed on the same day Kim had a baby shower at the home of her friend Shelli Azoff in Beverly Hills.

'Fashion Police' host Kelly Osbourne and former Spice Girl Mel B were among the guests spotted arriving at the lavish event, as well as Kim's sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, who arrived in white dresses.

Kelly shared her excitement on Twitter before the event, writing: "On my way to a very special baby shower!"

But it seems Kim's A-list pal Beyonce and pregnant singer Fergie, who was at Heidi Klum's 40th birthday bash on Saturday (01.06.13), were unable to attend.

Kimberly Stewart, who has a 21-month-old daughter Delilah after a brief fling with actor Benicio del Toro, celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, 'Extra' host Maria Menounos and reality TV star NeNe Leakes were also present to help the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star celebrate at the elegant "ladies' brunch" before of the arrival of her first child with rapper Kanye West early next month.

Kim's mother Kris Jenner hired top Hollywood events planner Sharon Sacks to organise the intimate affair with the help of Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney, who arrived in white dresses.

They sent out music box invitations to the bash last month, featuring twirling ballerinas to friends with an ode, 'Hey Mama', written by Kanye about his mother, who died after complications during cosmetic surgery in 2007.

The 'Mercy' hitmaker planned to make a brief appearance at Kim's baby shower with Khloe's husband Lamar Odom and Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick.

Khloe previously revealed: "It's girls, but Kanye will come at the end. I said I want Rob [Kardashian] to be there the whole time because I feel bad he's like left out of all this stuff. So I said come the whole time, but I don't know if he is.

"I think Scott and Lamar might bring Kanye at the end, because Kanye feels it's a little weird if he's the only guy."
