Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their baby girl via a surrogate on Monday. According to Kardashian’s website, the little girl weighs 7 pounds and 6 ounces.

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

It was reported in June that Kardashian and West had hired a surrogate after a medical professional deemed it too dangerous for the reality star to carry a child for the third time. Throughout the last season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” the star revealed her desire to explore surrogacy, having been diagnosed with placenta accrete during her pregnancies with both North and Saint. Kardashian then confirmed and West were expecting another child via a surrogate in September in a teaser trailer she shared on Twitter for the new season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” While FaceTiming with her sister Khloe, Kardashian exclaimed, “We’re having a baby!”

Naturally, after it was revealed that the Wests were having another child, the tabloids began making up a slew of stories. Among the many tales that Gossip Cop debunked was Life & Style story that falsely claimed Kardashian’s surrogate was pregnant with twins. A rep for the reality star would not confirm or deny the report, noting she would not be “engaging” on the subject, so Gossip Cop reached out to a number of mutual friends of ours and Kardashian and learned the couple was only going to have one more baby, not twins.

In November, Kardashian hosted an elaborate cherry blossom themed baby shower inside her Bel Air home. Later that month, during an appearance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the reality star accidentally let slip that she and West were having a baby girl while telling a story about her eldest daughter. “North is really excited about it. Let’s see if it lasts,” Kardashian joked.

The latest bundle of joy is Kardashian and West’s third child. The couple welcomed North West in 2013, followed by Saint West two years later after dealing with extensive fertility issues. Gossip Cop wishes Kardashian and West many years of health and happiness with their baby girl and growing family!
