One of each! Kim Kardashian has confirmed she's expecting a baby boy while posting a cute Father's Day Instagram message to husband Kanye West.

The reality TV star shared a sweet picture of daughter North West, 2, sitting on father Kanye's knee on Sunday, June 21, as she gushed about what a great dad the rapper is.

And amidst the sweet caption was confirmation of the news Us Weekly reported earlier in the month — that the happy couple are soon to be parents of a baby boy too!

"Precious moments like this when we were traveling on tour with you are what I live for," Kardashian, 34, wrote in the caption that accompanied the sweet picture of Nori and Kanye's storytime. "You're such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!" she said, adding mom, dad, daughter and son emojis on the end of the message.

Having a son is a dream come true for rapper Kanye, 38. "Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir," a source close to West told Us recently. “He's overjoyed!"

A friend of Kardashian's reveals she's elated with the news as well. "Kim always wanted two kids," says a Kardashian pal. "A girl and a boy."

The path to second-time parenthood was far from simple for fashionista Kardashian and her musician husband. The pair spent a year trying to conceive, and suffered failed IVF attempts.

But the struggles were worth it, Kardashian told Us at a recent event. "I'm so grateful to be pregnant when we didn’t even think it was going to happen," the delighted celebrity revealed. And even relentless morning sickness is something she's happy to take in her stride. "I can barely get out of bed," she continued. "But it’s so worth it. I don’t really care."
