Kim Kardashian West Welcomes 4th Baby!

It looks like the West/Kardashian family are about to become a family of six! The gestational surrogate that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hired to carry their fourth child is officially in labor. Big sister Kourtney Kardashian shared the news that the couple was at the hospital during an appearance on Ellen that was taped yesterday and will air today.

UPDATE: He's here

Kim Kardashian took to social media to share the birth of her baby boy! "He’s here and he’s perfect!” Kardashian West tweeted.

She also gave a bit of information on what he looks like -- but no photo yet. "He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her" she tweeted.

During a segment featuring Kris Jenner, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres surprised the momager by bringing out daughter Kourtney as well as six of the reality star's grandchildren. Kourtney brought out her own kids Mason, 9, Penelope, 6, and Reign, 4, as well as Kim’s three children North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 1. Kourtney then surprised her mother even more by revealing that Kim and Kanye's surrogate was in labor and that was why Kim wasn't on the show.

“So, my mom doesn’t even know this, but Kim’s surrogate went into labor, so she’s at the hospital,” Kourtney told the talk show host when explaining why Kim wasn't with her. Kris was clearly shocked stating, “What! What are we doing here?!” as she seemed ready to run to the hospital.

Kourtney then told the talk show host that no one knew that the reality stars had gone to the hospital and jokingly told the studio audience to keep it a secret!

Kim shot down rumors earlier in the week that her surrogate had already gone into labor  that was caused after she posted a text message she had received from her husband that said she had "four kids."

Many people took that to assume that her fourth child, a boy, was already born or at least that her surrogate was in labor. Kim was quick to ensure everyone that wasn't the case and that she wouldn't be attending the Met Ball if her son had been born.

After suffering from preeclampsia and placenta accreta during her first two pregnancies, Kim decided to hire a gestational surrogate to carry her third child, daughter Chicago. The couple then decided shortly after little Chi was born to use a remaining embryo and add another baby, a little brother for North, Saint, and Chicago, to the family. The couple announced they would be adding to their family back in January.
