Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Welcome Baby Boy

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed the birth of a baby boy by surrogate.

Kardashian announced the news on Twitter, writing: "He's here and he's perfect."

The famous couple already have three children together; North, five, Saint, three, and Chicago, who celebrated her first birthday earlier this year.

Kim added later: "He's also Chicago's twin lol I'm sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her."

They used a surrogate for this pregnancy after the 38-year-old was advised not to get pregnant again.

This was after she suffered a condition called placenta accreta, which is where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterus.

Since the news was announced, fans have flooded her social media channels, congratulating the happy couple.

One said: "Congrats kim I'm excited to see the baby!!!."

Another wrote: "Congratulations KimYe. Sending such love for you and new baby and all family. I'M EXCITED TO SEE THE BABY!!!"

Speaking about her surrogate before the birth, Kim said: "Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it's the easy way out is completely wrong.

"People assume it's better because you don't have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."

And Kimye don't plan on stopping just yet and hope to have more at least three more kids.

Kim said: "Kanye wants to have more, though. He's been harassing me. He wants like seven. He's like stuck in seven.

"(Seven kids is) crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in ... I've been kinda hesitant about having more kinds because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this."

If you're wondering what the pair are thinking of calling their new child, maybe we were let in on it a few months ago.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, the reality TV star said: "Actually, I do have one name. I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob, [after] my brother.

"Then it's North, Saint, Chicago - Rob."

Laughing, she added: "'It doesn't, like, really go. But I really was feeling that, and my brother approved that. So that's our one kind of name."

Congratulations, guys.
