Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West have welcomed their third child. The baby girl was born via surrogate shortly after midnight on Monday.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” a statement issued from the Kardashian’s website read. “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.”
The as-yet unnamed baby was born at 12.47 a.m. on Monday, according to the statement, weighing 7lbs 6oz.
Kim’s decision to use a surrogate was because she experienced undiagnosed preeclampsia during her first pregnancy with North West, in addition to “placenta accreta,” a condition in which the placenta grows very close to uterine wall.
