Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed their third child.
Their surrogate gave birth to a ‘healthy’ baby girl at 12:47am on January 15 weighing 7lb 6oz. They have not yet revealed the name of their daughter.
The 37-year-old announced the news in a message on her website titled, ‘She’s here! We’re so in love.’

Who better to take footwear inspiration from than a woman who must surely own more shoes than we’ve had hot dinners? We’re talking about Kim Karashian, of course. Her collection includes countless styles by Manolo Blahnik, Gianvito Rossi, Balmain, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga to name a few.
But the brand that’s getting prime space in her walk-in wardrobe is Yeezy and there are no prizes for guessing why.
To be fair, Kanye West’s shoe designs are incredibly on-point for the season thanks to the fact sock boots are top of the footwear trends right now.

She wrote: ‘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. Love, Kim Kardashian West.’
Soon after, TMZ added details about what happened in the delivery room. According to the site, ‘Kim was there when the surrogate was in labor.’
And the Selfish author was the first person the doctor handed the baby girl to. Kanye was not in the delivery room, but was present after the child was born.

After Kim and Kanye got a look at the child, they let the surrogate have some time with her, it was claimed.
‘The surrogate was able to have some contact with the baby after the delivery, but was almost immediately under the care of Kim and Kanye,’ the source said.

Kris Jenner was also reportedly at the hospital as well as Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe, who is pregnant with her first child.
Their decision to go through a surrogate for their third child came after Kim suffered complications with her two pregnancies, experiencing early-onset preeclampsia with North, two, and further troubles during labor with Saint, two.
Kim previously admitted that she’s found the surrogacy experience to be very stressful.
She shared: ‘Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. 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 … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it’s hard for me.
‘So, it’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.’

She also admitted she had trouble explaining the process to her children.
She chose not to invite the surrogate to her lavish baby shower in November to avoid confusing her little ones.
Kim said at the time: ‘I, um, I did not [invite the surrogate]. I did introduce her to my family. I introduced her to my family earlier that day. And, you know, I just thought, I don’t know, it was like a weird decision to have to make.

‘Of course, I would’ve wanted her to be there and be a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far in explaining it to my kids yet.
‘So I have to figure that out first before they really see and then if we’re celebrating, you know, her, I just want to celebrate the baby. I think I have to explain it to my kids first and figure out how I’m going to explain it to them.’
Kim and Kanye started dating in 2012 shortly after the end of her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries. They wed in 2014 in a lavish ceremony in Italy.
Their relationship hit a rough patch after they both endured a traumatic end to 2016, with Kim being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France, in October, and the ‘Famous’ rapper being hospitalized after suffering a breakdown just one month later.
