It’s a boy!
For some time now, there have been rumours about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wanting another baby. Well, speculate no more because Kim made it official that she and the hubs are expecting a baby boy via surrogate!
Kim joined her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on Watch What Happens Live (WWHL) with Andy Cohen, where viewers participated in a baby name poll of sorts. Cohen laid out three baby names for Kimye (East, South, Calabasas, Lil’ Kris), and then asked viewers to pick their favourite one.

Although “Calabasas” won the vote, Kim responded by saying she wouldn’t consider giving her next child any of those names. Things took a turn of events from there, when Cohen asked the question everyone’s been wondering about: “Are you working on another child?” The mom of three confirmed: “We are,” to which Cohen replied, “Obviously I knew that, I didn’t think you were telling everyone.”
It’s out there, says Kim
On screen, Kourtney and Khloe appeared to be shocked that Kim was spilling the beans. Turns out Kim let it slip once before while under the influence at their OTT Christmas Eve party last year. “Well, it’s out there. I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk,” she admitted.
Baby expected via surrogate
Kim and Kanye have three children – five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint, and one-year-old Chicago. Due to health reasons linked to placenta accreta, Kim and Kanye are using a surrogate to deliver their fourth child, just as they did with their third. Chicago’s surrogate is reportedly pregnant and Baby West will be carried by someone else. Kim gave no hints when the baby is due, except that he will arrive “sometime soon.”
Will Kim’s baby plans make her sisters broody?
Last year, the Kardashian/Jenner family grew by three aka the “triplet cousins”. In January, Kim and Kanye welcomed baby Chi. In February, Kylie Jenner gave birth to baby Stormi, and in April, Khloe Kardashian gave birth to baby True. In a Snapchat Q&A last year, Kylie already said that she wanted another baby with Travis Scott, but noted that she was “definitely not ready right this second.” Looks like we will have to wait it out and see whether the famous Kardashian/Jenner clan will be expanding!
On December 20 last year, Cohen announced that he is expecting a baby boy via surrogate. It seems future play-dates are on the cards for baby West and baby Cohen! Congrats to them both.
