Looks as if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are nesting — in a big way. The expectant parents have spent $11 million (Dh40.4 million) on a 10,000 square foot mansion in a very private gated community in Bel-Air, according to TMZ, which said the couple has owned it for a few weeks.

“The house is gorgeous,” a source told ‘People’. “And they really wanted and needed the privacy.”

But get this: That puppy’s a bit of a fixer, or at least it’s not exactly to Kimye’s liking. They’ve reportedly gutted it and are taking the Italian-style villa up to 14,000 square feet.

When it’s done, there’ll be a movie theatre and full hair and make-up salon, plus lots of ways to lose that baby weight: a gym, bowling alley, basketball court and indoor and outdoor pool.

Guess they came up with a down payment without having to sell the baby’s pics to that $3 million bidder
