The wait is finally over! “She’s here!”
Kimye welcomed their 7lbs weighing surrogate daughter on Monday, 15th January, at 12:47 am!
Kim Kardashian shared the news of her family growing from 4 to 5 members on her website!
Writing about her daughter, she said, “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.”
She added, “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.”
The Wests got hitched in May 2014 and, only seven months after their engagement, Kim gave birth to their first daughter, North. And then in 2015, she gave birth to their son, Saint.
It was not until June 2017 when it was confirmed that the reality show star has hired a surrogate for their family! Later in September, the star confirmed the news of the surrogate pregnancy.
The family chose to go for surrogacy due to Kim’s serious pregnancy complication, Placenta accreta, during her first two pregnancies.
Sources revealed, “Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process.”
But the family was very happy about it.
“The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate.”
Two days after the surrogacy news broke, sources revealed that it’s going to be a girl again. The Wests were ‘thrilled’ and were ‘excited about their future baby girl’.
The model confirmed this news at The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November. She even told that North has already started calling her ‘Baby Sister’.
Kim shared, “My daughter thinks she’s tricky. We had a baby shower over the weekend, and I thought, ‘You know, I really do want to have a baby shower because I want [North] to feel that something’s coming and for her to really understand it.’ ”
“So, people brought toys and gifts and [North] was opening them all up the next day. And she goes, ‘Mom, since Baby Sister’s not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room and [to] play with them and make sure they’re all okay for Baby Sister.” she continued.
Sources said, “Kim and Kanye are letting North help with naming the baby.”
She added that the process is very tough, at least emotionally.
“I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control. Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong.”
Kim Kardashian added, “Obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but it is still … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it’s hard for me.”
With the whole ‘pregnant Kardashian’ family, Kim’s daughter was the first one to arrive. Khloe – and probably Kylie – are expecting their babies in early 2018.
