Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcome baby boy via surrogate

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed their fourth child into the world, and have said he is ‘perfect.’

The proud parents welcomed their second son via surrogate on 10 May – basically our second royal baby in one week, after Meghan Markle gave birth to son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on Monday.

Taking to Twitter, the beauty mogul confirmed the good news with an adorable post.

She wrote: ‘He’s here and he’s perfect.’

Kimye already have three children – North, five, Saint, three, and Chicago, who celebrated her first birthday earlier this year.

The 38-year-old used a surrogate for the pregnancy as she was advised not to get pregnant again after suffering the condition placenta accreta, where the placenta grows too deeply into the wall of the uterus.

Speaking about her surrogate, she previously said: ‘Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong.

‘People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.’

However, four kids isn’t enough for Kanye who, according to Kim, doesn’t want to stop until the pair have seven.

She explained: ‘Kanye wants to have more, though. He’s been harassing me. He wants like seven. He’s like stuck in seven.

‘[Seven kids is] crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in … I’ve been kinda hesitant about having more kinds because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this.’

Although the couple are yet to reveal a name, Kim had wanted to call the little one Rob after her brother.

When appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this year, the reality star confessed: ‘Actually, I do have one name. I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob, [after] my brother.

‘Then it’s North, Saint, Chicago – Rob,’ she laughed, before adding: ‘It doesn’t, like, really go. But I really was feeling that, and my brother approved that. So that’s our one kind of name.’

Reaffirming the fact that she only wants the moniker to be Rob, the mother-of-four added: ‘I like Rob West, but not Robert West.’

News broke that the star was expecting a son back in January when the Yeezus rapper thanked photographers who wished him well on the ‘new baby’.

Kim’s sister Kourtney announced on a Mother’s Day special that Kim’s surrogate had gone into labour, telling mother Kris: ‘So, my mom doesn’t even know this, but Kim’s surrogate went into labour. So she’s at the hospital.’

This is the 10th grandchild for Kris Jenner – as well as Kim’s children North, five, Saint, three, and one-year-old Chicago, Kourtney is mum to Mason, nine, Penelope, six, and Reign, four with ex Scott Disick; Rob has two-year-old Dream with ex Blac Chyna; Kylie and Travis Scott have a one-year-old daughter Stormi; and Khloe is mother to one-year-old True with ex Tristan Thompson.
