Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West announced on Tuesday that their third child has been born, this time via surrogate.
Kardashian West announced Tuesday (Jan 16) on her app under the headline “We’re so in Love” that their third baby, a girl, was born early Monday (Jan 15) and weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kim announced on her app Tuesday.
“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.”
In late September, the reality star confirmed the exciting news that she and her husband were expecting their third child during a phone call with Khloe Kardashian.
Kim had previously documented her struggles to conceive a third child on her TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, including undergoing several procedures in an effort to get pregnant.
The reality star and makeup mogul suffered from placenta accreta, a potentially life-threatening complication, during her two pregnancies. Her daughter North is four years old and son Saint is two.
Kardashian West revealed on Twitter that a baby shower will be featured in next season (Season 15) of her reality TV show.
Sister Khloe Kardashian is expecting her first child with boyfriend and NBA star Tristan Thompson, and it has been rumored that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with her first child with rapper Travis Scott.
Kardashian West did not reveal the new arrival’s name.
It was unclear where the baby was born.
