Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Welcome Baby Number Four Through Surrogate

Announcing the happy news on Friday, the couple, who are already parents to daughter North, five, son Saint, three, and daughter Chicago, 15 months, revealed they are parents again following long labour. 

‘He’s here and he’s perfect,’ the beauty tweeted. 

This comes after 38-year-old Kim’s sister Kourtney, 40, surprised their mum Kris, 63, with the news that the surrogate was in labour with the child during an appearance on The Ellen Show on Thursday, much to the delight of the family matriarch.

Back in January, Kim confirmed that they were expecting their fourth child during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Though she also confessed to spilling the beans when she had too much to drink at their star-studded Christmas Eve party.

She told Andy Cohen: ‘I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.’

Kim gave birth naturally to daughter North, five, and son Saint, three, and the couple’s third child Chicago, 15 months, was born via surrogate in January 2018.

She battled with life-threatening condition placenta accreta during her two pregnancies and has been warned by her doctor to not carry her own baby again.

The condition occurs when all or part of the placenta remains attached to the uterine wall after childbirth.

During a November 2016 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim explored the possibility of carrying her third child.

Yet she was left bereft when doctors told her that there are too many risks if she gets pregnant and that it would be life-threatening.

Kim said on the show: ‘If the two doctors that I trust have told me it wouldn’t be safe for me to get pregnant again, I have to listen to that.’

Speaking in April, Kim made it clear that she wanted to have another child. She said on the reality show: ‘I’d love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe.

‘And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home — so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.’  

She later explained: ‘I can’t carry anymore kids… it’s the worst. I give up.’ Discussing the prospect of surrogacy, she added: ‘Kanye was really nervous about the surgery… but I know he would want to have more kids.

‘I feel like surrogacy is the only option for me. Kanye and I are going to look into other options and see what we are comfortable with … but I’m definitely leaning towards [surrogacy].

‘I always knew surrogacy was an option – now it’s my reality. Whatever is meant to be will be.’

The reality starlet, previously revealed that her sisters Khloe and Kourtney and her best friend Chrissy Teigen had offered to be her surrogate in the past following her health concerns.

As well as being a risk to her health, Kim has admitted that she found pregnancy ‘the worst experience of her life!’

Writing on her website, she explained: ‘I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life!’
