Kim Kardashian's family are planning a lavish baby shower for her.

The reality TV star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West and her mother kris jenner is working to throw a huge bash to celebrate despite her daughter's protestations that she doesn't want any fuss and would rather charity donations be made instead of people buying her expensive gifts..

A source said: ''The shower is going to happen this spring, outdoors, under a tent in Kris' backyard. The colours have already been chosen: silver, white, cream and pale yellow.

''She doesn't want a big party. She has told friends she would prefer if they made a donation to the Dream Foundation in her name instead of physical gifts.''

Even though she would prefer if the party didn't go ahead, Kim is putting on a brave face and Kanye is even flying in some of his family for the big day.

The insider added to America's OK! magazine: ''This is their first child. Kanye is really close to his family, he will fly them in. He will probably put them up at the Bel Air Hotel and shuttle them over for the party.''
