Kim Kardashian took to her website to announce birth of her third child with Kanye West via surrogate.
Kim wrote in a post on her website that her baby girl is “here” and that she is healthy and beautiful. According to Kim her third child was born Monday at 12:47 AM local time, weighing 7.6 pounds. She is yet to announce her name.
“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,” said Kardashian.
“North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister,” she added.
Kardashian and West married in May 2014, and already have two children: daughter North, four, and two-year-old son Saint. The couple chose to use a surrogate as Kardashian suffered from placenta accreta — a serious condition where the placenta becomes too deeply attached to the wall of the uterus — during her second pregnancy, making a third pregnancy too risky.
TMZ also reported that the Wests paid $45,000 to the surrogate — who was banned from smoking and taking drugs as well as taking hot baths, dying her hair and eating raw fish during the pregnancy.
