Their surrogate gave birth to a ‘healthy’ baby girl at 12:47am on January 15 weighing 7lb 6oz. They have not yet revealed the name of their daughter.
The 37-year-old announced the news in a message on her website titled, ‘She’s here! We’re so in love.’
She wrote: ‘Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.
‘We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister. Love, Kim Kardashian West.’
On Tuesday Kanye was seen in Los Angeles looking like a proud father as he entered a building. The Paranoid rapper held onto a laptop and his cell phone as he wore a dark brown sweat outfit.
Kim and Kanye were both in the delivery room with the surrogate, although the rapper was behind a curtain until after the baby was born, according to TMZ.
Kim was the first person to hold the baby girl for skin-to-skin bonding, but the surrogate was allowed some contact with the child after the birth.
Her sisters Kourtney, Khloe and mother Kris were also at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., where the family’s doctor Dr. Paul Crane oversaw the delivery.
Kanye was spotted in LA on Tuesday in high spirits while out solo.
