The beauty Co CEO and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her rapper husband revealed they are now parents of THREE, just a couple of hours ago.
Kim confirmed she and Kanye are parents to another baby girl, a sister for 4-year-old North and 2-year-old Saint, with a short post on her website titled “She’s here! – We’re so in love.” Kim was apparently in the delivery room when the little girl was born, People Magazine reports.

Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.

No word yet on this baby’s name, but we’ll have our experts on hand, refreshing Kim’s Instagram feed, in case she spills the beans today!
“So much harder”
It’s the grand finale in what’s been a difficult journey for the couple, who used a surrogate due to the risks associated with any further pregnancies. Kim’s been very open about the unique challenges of having another woman carry your child, and its given us a unique view into the surrogacy experience.
“Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong,” she told ET.
“I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control. And, you know, obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but it is still … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not, you know, my baby now, it’s hard for me.”
“The struggle is real”
“I hated being pregnant,” she confirmed. “I thought this was going to be so easy, but you know, even in how much I hated it, if I could do it myself I would have preferred that. That inner struggle is kind of hard, but I am just rolling with it and it is what it is.”
She also said that working with a surrogate successfully was a tricky balance to strike.
“It is a weird dynamic, like I go to all the doctor’s appointments, and I try to be really present, but when you’re not carrying it yourself, it is such a balance of how much you wanna be in their lives. I don’t want to be that person who’s trying to control that every move,” Kim said.
“No wonder you’ve gained a few pounds”
Kim and Kanye’s new daughter is the latest in an excellent glut of Kardashian kids, with Kylie Jenner reportedly pregnant and Khloe Kardashian announcing her pregnancy late ast year – and also on last night’s KUWTK.
The most recent episode of the family’s reality show sees them all assembled for barbeque. Tristan and Khloe take the opportunity to reveal they’re expecting, later dialling Kylie in to spill the beans, too.
“Tristan and I are so nervous to tell everyone,” Khloe says. “I mean we both don’t know what the hell we’re doing but we’re super excited. We’re so lucky and blessed to have everyone here.”
“We’re having a baby!” she announces. “Yes we are!”
“I’m so happy for you” Kris Jenner cries.
“No wonder you gained a few pounds,” Kourtney laughs.
Huge congrats to the Kardashian-Wests on this new baby girl!
