Don’t put anything that promises ageless beauty past Kim Kardashian. The reality TV star is known to try pretty much any cutting edge treatment, no matter how new or ancient, if there’s a remote chance that it’ll help her defy the sands of time.

Now with a baby on the way—Kim’s expected to deliver in about 5 to 7 weeks—the 32-year-old has expressed an interest in eating her own placenta.

“Don’t you think it makes you look younger?” she asked a doctor during the season 8 premiere of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”

“I really want to do it,” she confessed.

Kim wouldn’t be the first celebrity mom to admit to craving after-birth—or it’s nutritional benefits, anyway.

January Jones and Holly Madison also had some of their own placenta, a practice that’s just the latest in the “What To Expect When You’re Expecting a Celebrity Baby” handbook.

In addition to providing a more youthful glow, the practice also supposedly represses the possibility of postpartum depression and increases the production of mother’s milk.
