On Saturday morning, December 5, via an online announcement, the couple known as KimYe welcomed their second child, a son.
“Mother and son are doing well,” according to Kardashian West’s website.
We think you’ll be pleased to know that the new arrival won’t be named “South” or “Easton,” which was favored by Kim, 35, but thankfully Kanye, 38, wasn’t feeling. (And neither were we, for that matter.)
“I don’t think we’ll go another direction,” Kim said.
Meanwhile, People reports that the newest addition to the family’s annual holiday card joins North, 2, who has been thoroughly prepped for her role as big sister.
“We read books with her about getting a baby brother and a new sibling all the time! We always say goodnight to baby brother,” Kardashian West wrote on her website in October.
But giving their baby girl a sibling wasn’t easy.
The report goes on to point out that the two have been open about the challenges they faced to conceive, including Kim’s successful in vitro fertilization treatment.
“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star told People. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”
Kardashian West, who announced her pregnancy in May, later revealed she faced the possibility of a hysterectomy following the birth of her second child.
“They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told C Magazine in September.
