Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Welcome Baby No. 4 Via Surrogate

Grandma Kris Jenner’s family is expanding by one! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s surrogate has given birth to the couple’s fourth child.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 38, just revealed that she and her husband, 41, welcomed a healthy baby boy via surrogate. Kim announced the news on Twitter, writing, “He’s here and he’s perfect!”

Rumors started circulating yesterday when Kim’s mom and sister, Kourtney, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which is set to air today. Kourtney explained that while Kim was supposed to be with them, she was forced to cancel when her surrogate went into labor.

“My mom doesn’t even know this, but Kim’s surrogate went into labor,” Kourtney said. “So, she’s at the hospital.”

Of course, Jenner had the most candid reaction, saying, “No! What are we doing here?! C’mon Ellen.”

The pair were also joined by several of the grandkids, including Penelope Disick, Mason Disick, Reign Disick, North West, Saint West and Chicago West, who couldn’t care less about the baby’s impending arrival.

“No more! I’m done with this conversation,” Reign said when he heard the news.

Back in January, Kim announced that she and West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate. Although she carried her first two children, the couple chose to use a surrogate for their third child, Chicago, after Kim developed a life-threatening condition, placenta accrete, during her first two pregnancies. While little Chi’s birth was without major complications, they hired a different surrogate for their fourth child.

So, what will Kim and Kanye name baby number four? Cue the predictions.
