Exciting news from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West today, as insiders have confirmed that the couple is expecting their fourth child!
As with Chicago West, who entered the world last January, Kim and Kanye's new addition will be delivered by a surrogate.
The couple managed to keep the news under wraps for several months, which means details such as the baby's sex and due date are already available.
Here's everything we know so far:
The Kimye Clan
Kim and Kanye are already parents to three rambunctious youngsters -- daughters North and Chicago, and son Saint.
Born to Be Parents
Sources close to the couple say they're both naturals as parents, and they knew from the start of their relationship that they wanted to have several children together.
The Wests used a surrogate to carry their third child, daughter Chicago, and now, it seems that they've chosen that method again with their fourth child.
According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye hired a new surrogate this time around, not the young mom who carried Chicago.
That unidentified woman just gave birth to a child of her own on Christmas Eve, so her uterus was already occupied at the time that Kim and 'Ye were looking to plant their fourth.
Little is known about the new surrogate, which is exactly the way Kim and Kanye intend to keep it.
Sources close to the situation have speculated that the new woman is probably also a young mom in her twenties.
They Can Afford to Be Choosy
It's been said that the Kardashian-Wests prefer surrogates who are already moms, as they have evidence that these women know how to take care of themselves during a pregnancy.
No Official Announcement
The Kardashian-Wests have yet to share the big news publicly, but Us Weekly confirmed the reports with several insiders close to the family.
The Big Reveal
Back in August, Us reported that the Wests had one embryo left -- a male.
It's a Boy
As a result, we already know that Kim and Kanye are expecting a bouncing baby boy.
On top of that big news, it seems the surrogate is much further along than initially thought.
The child is set to arrive “in very early May," sources tell Us Weekly.
Power Couples Unite!
As many have pointed out, that's around the time that Meghan Markle is due to give birth to her first child.
Kim was unable to carry her third and fourth children herself due to major complications with her first two pregnancies.
Specifically, Kim suffered from placenta accreta, a serious and painful condition in which the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.
As a result of the condition, part or all of the placenta remains attached after giving birth, which can cause severe blood loss after delivery.
The Baby Making Kards
Obviously, these are fertile times in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, with both Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian welcoming children in the past year.
Kim never hinted recently that her surrogate is already pregnant, but she has suggested she would very much like a fourth.
Ready For a Fourth
"I would have maybe one more [kid],” Kim said in May. “I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process.
We wish the Kardashian-West clan all the best -- and we can't wait to see what sort of eccentric name they'll choose this time around!
