The Kardashian family tree just keeps growing. In what’s been another year of headlines and maternity announcements for the reality TV family clan, comes the arrival of its newest member to be introduced to the world.
Born on January 15th at 12:47 am, a healthy baby girl was welcomed to the arms of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces, the third of the Kardashian-West children is now here. The social media mogul took to her official website to make the big announcement, titled “She’s Here!”. Kim went on to say “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” confirming the news to all the die-hard fans who were awaiting the imminent announcement. The birth comes after a lengthy process in which the star couple found a surrogate to carry their next child.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give,” Kim said in her released statement. Although the surrogate’s identity has yet to be determined, she has been celebrated and spoken about. Reports revealed that she is a “married African-American college graduate with two children of her own” as well as a “Democrat in great physical shape.” In attendance at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center were her sisters Kourtney, Khloe, and mother Kris. Although the surrogate got some contact with the child after birth, Kim was the first person to enjoy a bonding moment and hold her new child.
The route of surrogacy comes after suffering complications with her first two pregnancies. She experienced pre-eclampsia in her first pregnancy with North, suffering from high blood pressure. Along with that, she also had placenta accreta, which is when the placenta is attached too deeply to the uterine wall, which happened in both of her pregnancies. To add to that scare, she was misinformed of a miscarriage the first time around, as well as warned about possibly bleeding to death if she were to carry another child herself.
