KIM KARDASHIAN’s hunt for a baby daddy is over!

She’s telling pals that her choice would be Halle Berry‘s ex, model Gabriel Aubry. The gorgeous new couple made their first public appearance at a Los Angeles Lakers game on Nov. 21.

"Kim is looking for a man who will make good daddy material, and she’s head over heels for Gabriel," divulged a friend of the 30-year-old reality TV sexpot.

"They met last year at an event but only recently ignited a romance. Gabriel is gorgeous, self-made and most importantly for Kim, he’s already proven himself as a capable and devoted dad.

"She’s ready to start a family and wants someone with good genes who isn’t afraid of diaper duty and late-night feedings.

"Kim believes she’s struck the jackpot with Gabriel!"
