Kanye West is reportedly consulting other “rich and famous people” on how best to protect his daughter.

The 36-year-old rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian’s little girl North will turn one on June 15. Kanye is notoriously private and dislikes the tot appearing in public too much, with claims he is now preparing to take new steps to ensure she is always safe.

“He is talking to other really rich and famous people about how they keep their kids safe and what extra precautions he can take. He isn’t taking any chances,” an insider told RadarOnline.

Although Kanye has always been protective of his daughter – the couple didn’t release her first photograph for some time – things are said to have ramped up a notch recently. His wedding to Kim is said to be one of the reasons, as North’s photo was taken a great deal when the family were in Europe for the nuptials last month.

“He was frustrated that the baby was in public so much and he wants to make sure that now that all of those festivities are over that she’s protected,” the side said.

It’s claimed that rather than trying to control when North is seen, Kanye has deep-rooted fears about keeping her safe. He is said to think that being followed by paparazzi and having the tot’s image appear on social networking sites could make her easy to trace.

Now Kim, 33, and Kanye have married speculation has begun about when they might add to their brood, especially given reports that her sister Kourtney Kardashian is expecting her third child with her partner Scott Disick.

Kanye’s step-brother Hal ‘Gore’ Carmichael has now weighed in on the topic, claiming he wouldn’t be surprised if a new arrival came sooner rather than later.

“He definitely wants a little Kanye Jr.,” he told Life & Style. “He won’t stop until he has one. He’s gotta keep his name going!

“Kanye has always wanted to be a family guy. There is more than one more kid in the picture for him.”
