Kim Kardashian West Welcomes Baby Girl via Surrogate
Congratulations are in order for the West family.
Earlier this morning, Kim Kardashian West announced their surrogate had given birth to a healthy baby girl in a statement posted to her site. The statement reads —

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.

New first broke that Kim Kardashian West hired a surrogate in June of 2017. The decision came after Kardashian West suffered placenta accreta — a serious pregnancy condition that occurs when blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall — during the birth of her second child, Saint (2).
Though the identity of the West’s surrogate has been kept private (for the most part), TMZ did reveal she is a “married African-American college graduate with two children of her own,” and is in “great physical shape.”
When the news broke, many were quick to congratulate the couple on their new bundle of joy.
Sister Khloé Kardashian opted to keep things simple replying with multiple pink heart emojis.
We can only imagine how Khloé must be feeling as she prepares to have a baby of her own. Just last night — on part two of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians midseason premiere — Khloé, and boyfriend Tristan Thompson, revealed the exciting pregnancy news to family and friends. Watch a recap of the episode below.
Notice Kylie Jenner (20) wasn’t present for the announcement? Was she trying to keep a low profile due to her own pregnancy? Well, according to PEOPLE, Jenner and Travis Scott are “trying to enjoy this time for themselves,” and want to “keep it [their pregnancy] private as long as they can.”
That aside, there is no denying Jenner had the sweetest reaction to Khloé’s pregnancy. In a FaceTime call, Jenner is shown wiping away tears as she says, “I’m so happy for you.”
Though Khloé only recently shared her pregnancy with the public, the first stages were, luckily, documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Watch Khloé reveal the news to her assistant — the second person to know after Tristan — below.
We can’t wait to see Khloé’s pregnancy progress on Keeping Up With the Kardashians!
What do you think of all this Kardashian/Jenner baby news? When will Kylie finally reveal she is pregnant? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
