Kim Kardashian’s baby isn’t even born yet and is already being drawn into mama’s divorce.

Kardashian, carrying boyfriend Kanye West’s child, has bristled at what she sees as stall tactics by estranged husband Kris Humphries to close the legal books on their 72-day marriage.

But Humphries’s lawyer Marshall W. Waller writes that “what is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy” is being used by Kardashian as “an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage (to) prematurely set this matter for trial.”

He adds parenthetically that the pregnancy is “something (Humphries) had nothing to do with.”

Waller explains his reasoning for calling the pregnancy as unplanned: “Indeed, why would (she) plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?”

Kardashian, herself, recently addressed the timing.

“God brings you things at a time when you least expect it,” she said last month. “I’m such a planner and this was just meant to be. What am I going to? Wait years to get a divorce? I’d love one. It’s a process.”
