The West family just became a party of four! Kim Kardashian made the exciting announcement that she and her husband Kanye West had welcomed their second child, a baby boy, early Saturday morning.
After the 35-year-old’s public fertility struggles, and her candidness throughout all of her pregnancy, we already know a lot about Kimye’s wee one even before meeting him!
But what do we know about the famous couple’s son’s birthday—AKA today! Let’s have a look:
1. Family First
While not all members of the Kardashian family were by Kim’s side as she went into labor, E! News has learned that her mother Kris Jenner and older sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian were at the hospital. Kourtney’s ex and father of their three children, Scott Disick, was seen dropping her off at the medical center, where he remained for about 20 minutes, E! News has learned.
The family also took the time to visit Lamar Odom, who was first hospitalized in October.
No word yet on where Kim’s other siblings were, except we do know that Kylie Jenner is currently in Miami for Art Basel. And while Kanye was just in New York City to accept an award for his footwear designs this week, he made it just in time to meet his first son.
2. Breech Baby
Earlier this month, the E! reality star informed her fans that her son was breech. After researching every way to remedy the situation possible, and working closely with her doctors, Kim announced just a few days ago that her baby had been flipped.
“This weekend I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV, which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position,” she explained shortly before sharing that the process was “probably more painful than childbirth.”
Meanwhile, a source told us earlier this morning that the last few days have been “stressful” for the expecting mama, adding that “it was time.”
3. Fashionably Early
Kim and Kanye’s son made quite the arrival—which seems fitting! Kim’s original due date was on Christmas Day, but clearly the Wests little miracle arrived a few weeks before.
4. What’s in a Name?
Sure, it’s pretty hard to come up with something as original as North West, the couple’s first child, but Kim revealed days ago that all potential names were completely out the window.
“We can’t think of a good name,” she recently admitted to E! News. “It’s so hard!”
Keeping up with the Kardashians may be tricky, but not when you’ve got plenty of cousins around!
North‘s little brother is going to be surrounded by several first cousins who are all very close in age. How close? Like almost a year to the day close.
We can already see play dates between Kim and Kanye’s yet-to-be-named son and Kourtney and Scott Disick’s third child Reign Aston Disick, who was born this time last year (more specifically on Dec. 14, 2014). Reign’s older sibs Penelope Disick and Mason Disick are also bound to be future BFFs with their less than five year age difference between them, too.
Congratulations to Kimye on their latest arrival! It’s sure to be a wonderful holiday season this year with the newest member of the family.
