A New Kardashian Baby Is Here

The most talked about family in Hollywood has a new member! For months now, the Kardashian rumor mill has been running full-speed with rumored pregnancies for three of the sisters.

Kim Kardashian first made headlines when she announced she would be expecting her third child via surrogate. Of course, the social media star faced backlash when people assumed she was using a surrogate as a way to avoid carrying her own child and "ruining" her body. However, it's been well-documented that Kim's past pregnancies have been high-risk due to placenta accreta, and doctors warned that carrying another child naturally could kill them both. Kim underwent surgery to try and fix the problem, but it didn't work.

“After everything I went through, the surgery and it wasn’t successful and didn’t do anything,” she said. “Kanye was really nervous about the surgery … but I know he would want to have more kids. I feel like surrogacy is the only option for me.”

Then, Khloe Kardashian confirmed her pregnancy after months of speculation.

My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned!

The most mysterious pregnancy rumor of them all is Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner brood, who is apparently expecting her first child by the end of January. No one in the family has spoken out about these rumors, which is leading people to believe it's true.

Now, an announcement has been made that the first of the (rumored) three babies has arrived!

According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye West welcomed their third child, a daughter, through surrogacy on Tuesday morning. The newest member will be joining older sister, North, and older brother, Saint.

As of right now, there's no name set for the baby, but it's bound to be something interesting. While on The Ellen Show, Kim revealed that she likes simple, easy to spell names for her kids.

Kim posted about her daughter's birth on her official website.

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she wrote. “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.”

We're thrilled that Kim and Kanye were able to continue their dreams of having kids despite Kim's serious medical issues. We're sure the new addition will be just as cute as the other two!
