The news of the baby boy’s arrival — via surrogate — was announced by the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Friday on Twitter. While she didn’t reveal his name, she said that “he’s perfect.”
He’s here and he’s perfect!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 10, 2019
Kardashian added that the baby is “Chicago’s twin,” referring to their 1-year-old.
He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her ✨— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 10, 2019
The couple, who will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on May 24, are also parents to North, 5, and Saint, 3.
Kardashian turned to surrogacy after having difficult pregnancies with her first two children. She revealed in 2017 that she could no longer carry babies — the risk was too high. According to Entertainment Tonight, the surrogate they used for this pregnancy is different than the one they used for Chicago.
Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner spilled the news that the surrogate was in labor while taping a Mother’s Day segment on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. Apparently Kim and Kourtney were supposed to surprise guest Kris by bringing out their kids during the momager’s interview. However, Kourtney arrived solo — with her three and Kim’s three — and told a shocked Kris that Kim was at the hospital waiting for the baby.
There was a false report days earlier — on Monday — that the surrogate had given birth. Kardashian shut down the news on Twitter, writing, “It’s Met Monday,” she said, referring to the Met Gala. “I’m in NYC. I would be at the hospital lol.”
Wait just saw news our baby boy came but that’s not true! It’s Met Monday, I’m in NYC. I would be at the hospital lol— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 6, 2019
