Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Welcome Their Fourth Child Via Surrogate


Keeping Up With Kardashians just gained another mini cast member! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their fourth child via surrogate on Thursday, May 9.

“He’s here and he’s perfect!” the reality star, 38, tweeted on Friday, May 10. The little one arrived weighing 6 pounds and 9 ounces.

Kourtney Kardashian revealed that her sister’s surrogate was in labor on Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “My mom doesn’t even know this but Kim’s surrogate went into labor,” she told Ellen DeGeneres at the time. “So she’s at the hospital.”

Kris Jenner responded, “No! What are we doing sitting here? C’mon Ellen, let’s go!”

Us Weekly broke the news in January that Kim and the rapper, 41, had a baby boy on the way after revealing in May that the pair had one male embryo left.

The KKW Beauty creator confirmed this news during an appearance of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen later that month, alongside Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian.

When her sisters expressed their surprise that Kim admitted her fourth child would arrive “sometime soon,” she said, “Well, it’s out there. … I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told, because I never get drunk.”

The Selfish author gave birth to North, 5, and Saint, 3, in 2015 and 2013, respectively. She and the “I Love it” rapper, who tied the knot in 2014, welcomed Chicago, 15 months, via a gestational carrier four years later.

A source told Us in January that the E! personality and her husband would be “using a different [surrogacy] agency” this time around.

As she awaited her infant’s arrival, Kim told Jimmy Fallon on a February episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that she was already anxious.

“I was kind of stressing that my house is so full, but I heard that parents of four are the most enlightened and calm of all parents,” she told the talk show host, 44.

“I feel like four is going to be really even,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star continued, explaining that she usually watches two of her kids while the Grammy winner rapper watches a third.
