Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcome baby number three
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate, and the family is over the moon.
“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,” she announced.
In late September, the reality star confirmed that she and her husband were expecting their third child.
Kim had previously documented her struggles to conceive a third child on the hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, including undergoing several procedures in an effort to get pregnant.
The famous couple used a surrogate because when she was pregnant with North, Kim had pre-eclampsia, a complication characterized by high blood pressure.
And in both pregnancies, she had placenta accreta, which occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply in the uterine wall.
The couple’s decision to use a surrogate came after Kim revealed she could “bleed to death” if she carried another child.
The identity of the couple’s surrogate has been kept private, though reports claim she was being “pampered” by the couple as she carried their bundle of joy.
The baby joins older siblings North, 4, and Saint, 2.
No name has been announced for the newest member of the family as of yet.
