Kim Kardashian West confirmed on Tuesday that she and husband Kanye West, 40, have welcomed their third child, a baby girl, via surrogate. On Friday, after much speculation the mom-of-three finally revealed the name.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, 37, said in a statement on her website. “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.”
Weighing in at 7-pounds, 6-ounces, the newest little West’s name is Chicago.
Kim revealed the name of her newborn on her Instagram story on Friday:
And the little one’s Aunt Khloe has already started calling her “Chi,” which isn’t surprising since her namesake – the city of Chicago – is also fondly known as “Chi-Town.”
“They are fully prepared and can’t wait to bring their baby home,” a source told Entertainment Tonight this week.
Both Kardashian and West confirmed their choice to use surrogacy as the reality star suffers from the condition placenta accreta, which means another pregnancy could have been life-threatening.
“This was always the plan. After the complications with the other pregnancies, they knew they wanted to go the surrogacy route for the next baby,” the source told ET. Both parents were in the delivery room, but the birth will not air on KUWTK.
Sister Khloe Kardashian, 33, also recently announced her pregnancy and reacted to Kim’s happy news on Twitter:
