Which lens should I rent for birth of my first child?

I can't afford to buy a new lens, so I was thinking about renting a fast prime for the birth of my first child. This is what I currently own:

40d
10-22
17-55 2.8 IS
60 2.8 macro
85 1.8
580ex II

I was thinking about renting the 35 1.4, but I'm wondering if the 24 1.4 II would be better. The 24 1.4 II probably has better IQ wide open, which is the main reason why I'd be using this lens over the 17-55, but for portraits of a new born, 35mm might work better. What do you think?
