Kim Kardashian Gives Birth to a Baby Boy, Her Second Child With Kanye West
Break out the mini Air Yeezys, because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed a baby boy!
The reality star gave birth to their child, the couple’s second, on Saturday morning.
“KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!” Kim wrote on her website and app.
“Mother and son are doing well,” the message stated.
His name was not revealed.
Kim had one day earlier posted on social media a selfie showing her nine-month-old baby bump, saying, “Ready whenever you are lol.”
The star, who was also rumored to be planning to get induced early, revealed before Thanksgiving that there was a chance she’d have to get a C-section this time around because her baby was breech, meaning his body was turned in the womb.
Fortunately, Kim was able to undergo a procedure over the Thanksgiving-holiday weekend to have the baby turned in the correct direction, head pointing down. “This weekend I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position,” she revealed in a Dec. 1 blog post.
“They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby,” she continued. “There was a risk that my water might break or the baby’s heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place. I went in with my sisters and my husband. I was prepared for it all!”
“They don’t give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful,” Kim wrote. “Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!”
That was a major relief for Kim, who still hoped to deliver the baby naturally. However, “if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section—but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not,” she previously explained.
However, this isn’t her first rodeo when it comes to motherhood, and this time around, she has a little helper that is more than eager to help mommy out with the new addition.
“We talk about baby brother all the time,” the 35-year-old star recently told E! News exclusively about big sis Nori. “She’s so sweet and yesterday she said, ‘Mommy, can I give baby brother a kiss on your tummy?’ and she kissed my stomach. She’s super sweet. She has a hard time when I hold other babies but she’s been getting a little bit better and I’m hoping that with her brother it’s a whole new experience.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Reveal the Name of Their Baby Boy
The waiting and guessing game is officially over!
After much anticipation, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are finally ready to reveal the name of their baby boy. Without further ado, the happy couple announced on Kim’s website that they decided on…
The post also revealed the baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 1 oz. The decision is one that was made towards the end of the reality star’s pregnancy journey. In fact, the 35-year-old and her hubby hadn’t decided on the perfect name Sunday evening.
I’d like to point out that Kim Kardashian gave birth THREE MONTHS AGO and she still hasn’t got her pre-pregnancy body back yet. And even if she is a curvy woman, she does have a natural flat stomach, works out regularly and has a team that follows her to get back in shape.
