Kim Kardashian West announced on her website on Dec. 5, 2015 that she and husband Kanye West have welcomed a baby boy in Los Angeles.
“Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well,” the announcement reads, accompanied by a photo of Kim and Kanye holding hands.
Kim was originally due around Christmas, but it was reported recently that she would likely be induced a month early, around Thanksgiving, because of her medical history. In November, Kim said this was a high-risk pregnancy after an ultrasound showed excess fluid in her placenta, generally a sign of gestational diabetes.
Prior to the birth, she said she was nervous, stating on her website: “This pregnancy, I’m definitely scared for my delivery, but trying my best to be hopeful and not stress out too much!”
She also mentioned that her risk of preclampsia and placenta acreeta were increased. “There’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen,” she adds. “So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow.”
In 2013, Kim delivered daughter North early as well, also due to health concerns.
No word yet on the official name for Baby Boy West, but Twitter has already deemed him Easton, a name Kim told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that Kanye wasn’t feeling. We’re sure we’ll find out his name soon enough.
