Kanye West will be joined on tour by Kim Kardashian and their baby.

Kim, 32, is expecting the couple's first child in July and while Kanye, 35, has a European tour planned for later this year, he will take his girlfriend and baby on the road with him.

A source close to the couple told Us Weekly: ''Yes, it's true. This was always the plan.''

Meanwhile, Kim can't wait for the birth of their baby and thinks she is completely prepared for motherhood thanks to the example provided by her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, who has two children, Mason, three, and Penelope, 10 months, with her boyfriend Scott Disick.

She said: ''My mom is a strong and ambitious career woman that despite her busy schedule and the millions of things she has going on, she still manages to put family first and continues to look out for us every day. Motherhood is a gift and I know after watching my mom do it, it's not easy especially when trying to balance a career. I can't wait to follow in her footsteps and make her proud like I am of her.

''Kourtney, my sister, best friend, and mentor has also taught me so much about motherhood from being the most incredible mom to Mason and Penelope. She is super woman with her ability to effortlessly balance work with taking care of two amazing kids and I am so lucky to have her as my guide and confidant as I too become a mother.''
