The couple have released a statement saying ‘mother and son are doing well’ The reality star, 35, welcomed the child this morning, according to a statement on her website. A representative for the couple wrote: “To our fans. Kanye and I welcome our baby boy! Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. “Mother and son are doing well.”
The statement was accompanied by a picture of the couple holding hands.
Kim and Kanye, who already have daughter North West, two, have not yet revealed the tot’s name.
The news comes just two days after rapper Kanye, 38, announced his baby was set to arrive “any day now” despite Kim’s due date reportedly being Christmas Day.
Last weekend, the mother-of-two revealed she had undergone a procedure to have the baby to be turned around in her womb as it was in the breech position.
She wrote on her website: “This weekend I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position.
“They don’t give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful.
“Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!”
But the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has made no secret of the troubles she’s had while pregnant. Writing on her website earlier this week, she said she felt fat as f***” and that her “cankles are out of control”. In a previous post, she wrote: “I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it.”
Her pregnancy had been classified as high-risk after baby North arrived five weeks prematurely.
And her journey to getting pregnant again was far from simple as the couple, who wed in Florence in May 2014, struggled to conceive.
She said at the time: ‘We are trying. We try every single day. You can’t try harder than we try.“It’s getting exhausting. He always says, ‘Trying for baby No. 2 isn’t as fun as trying to baby No. 1.’
“But we’re literally trying everything that we can to make it happen, so I’m to the point now where it’s not as stressful to me. And maybe that’s when they say it happens.”
But in a teaser broadcast this week, Kim revealed she is already looking to get pregnant again to continue expanding their brood.
Speaking to her mum Kris Jenner in a sneak preview of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she explained: “I’m not worried about after [giving birth to my second child] … I’m just worried about number three, that’s when your body really starts to slip.”
Visibly surprised by Kim’s admission, Kris snapped back: “Number three? Whoa! Can we just slow down and have number two?”
