Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a baby girl.
The reality star and her rapper husband will be welcoming another little girl to the Kardashian-West family.
Sources familiar with the pregnancy apparently told TMZ the couple’s surrogate is carrying a female bundle of joy.
Kim later confirmed on The Ellen Show that they were indeed having a girl.
During her interview, Kim spoke to Ellen about the baby shower, telling her: “So people brought toys and gifts, and she [North West] was opening them all up the next day and she said: ‘Mom, you know since baby sister is not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room, and I’ll play with them and make sure they are all okay for baby sister.'”
After realising she had let the information slip, Khloe Kardashian’s sister confirmed she is expecting a girl.
Kim and Kanye’s surrogate’s due date
Kylie Jenner’s older sister is said to be welcoming her third baby at Christmas 2017.
“Kim’s surrogate is due before Christmas,” an insider reportedly told Us Weekly.
They also added the couple are in regular contact with the woman in question, the publication stated the surrogacy will be “discussed” on a future episode of their E! reality show.
Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy troubles: Why are they using a surrogate?
During her pregnancy with both North and Saint, Kylie Jenner’s older sister was diagnosed with placenta accrete.
The condition – which can be life threatening – develops when the placenta is attached too deep into the uterine wall.
This can mean haemorrhaging in labour.
Reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s has followed the star’s struggles as well as her discussions with her family about having a third child.
Who is Kim Kardashian’s surrogate?
Us Weekly’s insider has revealed the couple’s surrogate is in ‘her late 20s’.
Reportedly, the woman was referred to Kim and Kanye ‘by an agency’.
Opening up about her surrogate, Kim explained on The Real Daytime that the surrogate did not know who’s baby she was carrying to begin with.
The star shared: “You can do it totally anonymously, you could go that route, and I just felt like I wanted who ever is carrying my baby – I mean, what if they weren’t a fan of me and my husband, and what if they didn’t want to be carrying our baby? I wanted to give them that choice.”
She added: “I wanted a relationship with her.”
Kim Kardashian baby shower
Kim Kardashian celebrated the awaited arrival of her third baby with a lavished event at her home.
Decorating their house with cherry blossom, Kim and Kanye had friends and family round to celebrate.
Kim did not invite the surrogate to the baby shower, and since explained during an interview on The Real Daytime: “I did introduce her to my family earlier that day.
It was a weird decision to have to make, of course I would have wanted her there to have been a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far and had explained it to my kids yet, so I have to figure that out first before they really see.”
Kim Kardashian baby name
Following North and Saint, baby number three is of course going to have just as unique of a name. In fact, Kim has even admitted she has a rule for her children’s titles.
The fashion and beauty guru has admitted she hasn’t settled on a name yet, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any rules.
The star revealed to Ellen: “Short, easy to spell, one syllable, that’s kind of my vibe.”
