“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. Love, Kim Kardashian West,” Kim’s post in her website read.
Keeping the surrogate’s identity anonymous, TMZ reported September last year that the surrogate is a “married African-American college graduate with two children of her own” and a Democrat in “great physical shape.”
Kim and Kanye have always wanted a third child after North and Saint who are 4 and 2 years old, respectively, however, doctors advised Kim that she “might bleed to death” as she suffered previous complications during her pregnancy with North and Saint.
The Kardashian-Jenners have been recently showering baby news as Khloe and Kylie are also expecting new additions to their clan.
