The world will soon be keeping up with a new Kardashian on television — on Tuesday evening, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West confirmed the arrival of her third child and second daughter with husband Kanye West. The couple also have four-year-old daughter North and two-year-old son Saint.
Kardashian West shared the news of the birth with her social media followers, but has not yet publicly released the baby’s name.
The couple used a surrogate to carry the child after doctors warned Kardashian West about the potential medical risks of her becoming pregnant again. She has spoken enthusiastically about the family’s surrogate — whose identity is unknown — and thanked her in an online post announcing the baby’s arrival.

Kardashian West isn’t the only member of her family who will be welcoming a new addition: sisters Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian are also expecting children this year.
Jenner is due to welcome her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott later this month (and, because of the closeness of her and Kardashian West’s due dates, caused fans to wonder if she was the Wests’ anonymous surrogate). Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian has confirmed that she and boyfriend Tristan Thompson will become parents sometime in the coming months.
One thing’s for sure, if the Kardashian-Jenner clan ever wants to expand its roster of reality shows, a “next generation” spin-off might be a good bet.
