For Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it’s a new year and a new bundle of joy that will soon become a member of their ever-growing family. That’s right: Kimye is expecting their fourth child! And while this comes as a surprise to many people, most Kardashian fans knew this was going to happen sooner or later. After all, Kim herself comes from a very big family herself. She’s made it no secret that she loves her children and that having a big family was always a priority for her.
With that being said, there are going to be a lot of changes made for the West clan in the coming months. Right now, Kim and Kanye will be making room for their newest bundle of joy while also trying to spend as much time as possible with their three children: North, Saint, and Chicago. Because if there is anything that they want to avoid, it’s sibling jealousy. As much attention as the West siblings do get from their parents, there are so many things that are going to change. That’s why we’ve got a list of five things that we already know about Kimye Baby No. 4 and 18 things about North, Saint, and Chicago. Here’s what you need to know!
23 North Is Not Happy She Has To Share Her World
When it comes to the West children, it looks like everyone is taking the pregnancy news differently. Apparently, North West is not happy with the fact that there is another sibling that will join their ever expanding family. “She’s beyond jealousy now. She’s just like, ‘It’s my world.’” Kim Kardashian said in a recent interview, adding, “She said to me the other day, ‘Mom … we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone … so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house."
22 She Is The Family Trendsetter
By now a lot of Kardashian fans have noticed that North West gets a lot of attention in the media and there’s a good reason for it. The 5-year-old has become quite a trendsetter in recent years. Apparently, she loves fashion and clothes just as much as her mother and her aunts do. She also loves dressing up and posing for her famous mother. "I take pictures of [North] all the time and dress her up," Kim told Vogue. "I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, 'What up, Daddy?'"
21 North Was Born Premature
Even though Kim Kardashian never revealed her due date with North West, she did admit that her daughter was born prematurely. Her pregnancy with Nori didn’t work out the way that she was hoping. And while it was very unsettling, Kim is so proud of herself and everything that she’s so far accomplished as a mother. She wouldn’t have it any other way. "Motherhood is a gift and I know after watching my mom do it, it's not easy, especially when trying to balance your mom life with your professional life. I'm honored to follow in her footsteps and make her proud like I am of her." — Kim, before North West was born, on her personal blog.
20 She’s Closer To Penelope Than Her Own Siblings
By now a lot of people have noticed that North West is very close to her cousin, Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, Penelope Disick. As a matter of fact, the Kardashians have had a very fun time documenting their close friendship on social media for their followers. The two little girls love each other and it shows. From their ballet classes to their joint birthday parties, North and Penelope are inseparable. It’s so much fun watching them grow, laugh, and play together. Many fans can’t wait to see them as best friends in their teen years, too!
19 North Will Give Kim The Hardest Time With The Baby
Kim has made it no secret that she’s had her good days and her bad days as a mother. She’s also said on the record that North is the kind of person that likes to have her mother all to herself. But with four children in the family, it’s simply not going to happen her way. That’s why Kim has learned to shift things a bit in her life to make room for everyone. "[Motherhood] has taught me how to prioritize. And I was forced to take a break for a while. I never liked downtime, but I decided I enjoy it — that’s when the fun ideas come about." — Kim, in C Magazine.
18 She’ll Be Spending More Time With Her Kardashian Aunts
If there is one thing that we know, it’s that the Kardashians like to raise their children as one big family. As the saying goes, it definitely takes a village. Sure, the Kardashians and Jenners can afford some of the best help that money can buy, but they prefer to be as hands-on as possible with their kids. That’s why you can expect to see Khloé, Kourtney, and even Kylie and Kendall help out with the West kids once the fourth child is born. There’s a good chance that Nori will be spending a lot of time with her aunts in the near future.
17 Saint Is Daddy’s Little Boy
When it comes to Saint West, he is definitely much more different than his older sister, North West, and his younger sister, Chicago West. As a matter of fact, Saint is his daddy’s little boy. Kanye West absolutely loves spending time with his kids and of course, being a dad. It’s his best role to date and one that he takes very seriously. “He loves the innocence of children; they’re not judging him. They don’t care what he does for a living,” one source close to the Wests told People Magazine. “They don’t read the tabloids. To them, he’s just Dad.”
16 He’s More Chill Than North
And while North West might be the kind of child who likes to command a lot of attention everywhere she goes, apparently, Saint West is not like that at all. He’s the opposite of his sister. He’s more chilled and relaxed and simply loves to smile, laugh, and be with his parents. Now, we don’t want to make any assumptions here, but it would be interesting to find out who Saint got his personality from. After all, we know how Kanye West is in public and we have definitely seen Kim Kardashian at both her best and her not so best. One can only guess, right? Ha!
15 Kim's Pregnancy With Saint Was Difficult
Kim Kardashian has mentioned several times that pregnancy just doesn’t suit her or her body. Not only did she have complications (as mentioned above), but she didn’t like the way she felt or the way that she looked for that matter. In other words, she didn't like it. Kim has said, “I [...] felt so unlike myself and so ugh… Literally, at the end, when you can’t even have fun, I thought, ‘I’m never going to have fun again in my life!’ I just felt so bad about myself in my soul.”
14 The Meaning Behind ‘Saint’
There’s a very meaningful reason why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose the name ‘Saint’ for their baby boy. As we already know, he’s a chilled-out toddler who is on the pretty easy going side. And apparently, that’s exactly what Kim needed, especially after the difficult pregnancy that she endured. Saint was picked since it's akin to saying he is "a blessing," especially "because she had such a difficult pregnancy,” one source close to the Kardashians shared to E! Online. Kim also added, "We just started talking about it and that was the last thing for us last time. So I feel confident obviously that we'll figure it out."
13 Music Is In His Genes
It looks like Kanye West doesn’t have to look very far for his newest protégé. That’s because music is in his son’s genes! Apparently, the tot loves his dad's music just as much as the millions of Kanye West fans out there. "Who's singing this?" Kim Kardashian asked her son in a cute clip that she shared on her social media account back in 2018. As Kim puts her hand under her son's chin, Saint replies, "Daddy." That’s right! Music is in Saint’s genes. We have a good feeling that this little boy might end up walking in his dad's footsteps one day. Watch this space.
12 He Gets Along With His Siblings And Cousins
For the most part, it looks like Saint West gets along with his siblings even though his sister North West probably doesn’t want anything to do with him (according to their mother, Kim!). Thankfully, he’s got his little sister Chicago that he can play with and soon enough, his new little brother. Now, we don’t know what kind of child Saint will be when he grows up but from what we can tell already, he does seem like a perfect little Saint. Considering just how intense his parents can get (especially dad Kanye West), that’s saying a lot if you know what we mean!
11 Chicago Isn’t On Social Media As Much As North
A lot of Kardashian fans couldn’t help but notice that Chicago isn’t on social media as often as her two older siblings, North and Saint are. That could be because Kim perhaps just doesn’t have the time to post all of her family pics on her social media accounts. Or she could simply be up to her knees in work. After all, a lot of things change after both the third and the fourth child. Now, just because Kim doesn’t post as many pics of Chicago doesn’t mean she loves her any less than the other kids. Instead, she just doesn’t have the time.
10 Her Playdates With Cousin True
As many Kardashian fans already know, Chicago’s sister North is very close to their cousin Penelope, simply because they are very close in age and have similar interests. In fact, Nori would rather hang out with her bestie Penelope than hang out with her own siblings! But with that being said, there’s a chance that Chicago might end up having a very good friendship with her other cousin, True Thompson. So far it seems to be working as moms Kim and Khloé love arranging play dates with them while they take pics and of course, eat cupcakes! Say what you will about the Kardashians, but there’s no denying they are a close-knit family.
9 Chicago Is Very Calm… Unless She Wants Food!
It looks like Chicago takes after her brother Saint. Kim Kardashian recently shared in an interview that the tot is actually a very calm baby, that is unless she’s hungry. The moment that she wants some food, her personality can change in a split second. But then again, aren’t we all like that at certain times? Ha! Don’t mess with a hungry baby, or better yet, a hungry Kardashian baby because you will feel her anger! Kim said Chi is "very calm except for when she wants food lol She LOVES food! She has the best personality, so easy and chill."
8 Many Fans Think Chicago Looks Like A Doll
Now, no one wants to pick favorites (or admit to picking favorites) but a lot of Kardashian fans have gone on social media to express just how much they love seeing pics of Chicago West! As a matter of fact, they think she looks so perfect that she can easily pass as a real-life doll (and that’s something we won’t argue). Yes, all of the West children are adorable (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have done a good job of making beautiful babies) but there’s just something that makes little Chicago stand out from the crowd. She is too cute for words!
7 She Is Kim And Kanye’s Easiest Child To Date
Now, Kim has admitted that Saint is a very easy child but apparently Chicago is her and Kanye’s easiest child to date! And with their family expanding every year, that’s a good thing! As busy as Kim is with her children though, she doesn’t forget to take time out for herself. "Sometimes I see a lot of my friends just get taken over by their kids and their life, and that’s great, but if you don’t spend a little bit of time — whether it’s two hours a day, or one day a week to and visit with your friends. It really helps a lot." — Kim, in the Daily Mail.
6 She Will Be Close In Age With Her New Sibling
And while no one knows what the due date is for the fourth Kardashian child (it hasn’t been confirmed by Kim Kardashian or Kanye West yet) we do know that little Chi and her newest baby brother will be very close in age. After all, Chicago was 11 months old when Kim and Kanye made the announcement that they are expecting their fourth child. There’s a good chance that the two Kardashian kids will only be about 18 months apart, which means they will grow up to be very close in more ways than one. Here’s hoping they get along, too.
5 Kim Wants A Boy
Kim Kardashian is the kind of person who knows what she wants and eventually gets everything that she wants, too. Apparently, reports indicate that the reality television star is looking to have a baby boy. This way she feels her family will “even out” so to speak, with two boys and two girls. While a lot can be said about Kim Kardashian, there’s no denying that she is someone who is in love with motherhood. "Having kids has changed my soul!" Kim wrote. "You learn so much about yourself from being a parent and you care more about the world you are raising your kids in."
4 They’ve Hired A Different Surrogate Because Their Last One Is Now Pregnant
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were hoping to use the same surrogate that they used with their daughter Chicago West, but unfortunately, it didn’t work out for them. Instead, they have a new, trusted surrogate who is carrying their fourth child. For Kim, she’s simply not a fan of pregnancy. She didn’t enjoy herself when she was pregnant with North or the second time with Saint. For Kim, she simply didn't want to put her body through everything a third or fourth time around. Two pregnancies were enough for her. After all, if there is one person who knows what is good and what's not good for her health, it's her. She's doing what's best for her family.
3 The Baby News Is Already Influencing The Other Sisters And Their Plans
If there is one thing that the Kardashians are very good at these days, it’s definitely having children! There are new reports indicating that the other Kardashian sisters have gotten baby fever ever since they found out that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child. At this point, it really does seem like there are more babies and toddlers than actual adults in Kris Jenner’s house. But that’s not such a bad thing, right? If getting pregnant keeps them out of trouble, then, by all means, go for it, girls! The world can always use more beautiful babies.
2 They Will Keep Their Baby Name A Secret
Sure, Kim Kardashian is the kind of person who doesn’t mind talking about her family life and sharing every little tiny detail with her fans. But when it comes to unique names that she chooses for her children, she likes to keep as quiet as possible. Some believe that she does it to build media suspense. Others think that at this point, Kim and Kanye are just having a hard time out-doing themselves with each baby name. Either way, we have a feeling that the fourth Kardashian child’s name will be one that will have our jaws drop to the ground.
1 Kim Has To Use A Surrogate And Here’s Why
When Kim was last pregnant with her son Saint, it was a high-risk pregnancy. Apparently, she went through something called placenta accrete. Kim told Elle magazine, “After giving birth, your placenta is supposed to come out. But mine was stuck. That’s what women usually have complications from in childbirth." The situation was so nerve-racking for everyone that Kim says each time you mention it near her mother Kris, she can’t help but cry. Thank goodness everything turned out to be okay! But we can see why the reality television star has decided to use surrogates instead.
