Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are urging family members and friends that in lieu of sending baby gifts, they send donations to Chicago’s Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Lurie’s has confirmed – saying, “Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their thoughtfulness and support of the hospital.”

The hospital also said in a statement that all funds donated on Kim and Kanye’s behalf will be directed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fund.  That helps care for the most critically-ill babies and their families.

The couple apparently notified friends and family about their decision after fake baby registries surfaced online.

Kardashian is due in July.
