The baby will be born via surrogate.
Kanye and Kim Kardashian West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate. The news was confirmedby People on Wednesday.
The baby will join North, five and a half; Saint, three; and Chicago, who turns one on Jan. 15.
Chicago was also born via surrogate. While the identity of the surrogate was kept a secret, the pregnancy process was regularly documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
A source for the reality show told People that the pregnancy comes as a surprise and that the couple did not seem to be in a rush to expand their family. “They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure,” said the insider.
Us Weekly was the first to break the news. An inside source told the magazine that the baby is a boy and is expected in early May.
The couple married in 2014 after the birth of North in June of the previous year. The new baby will be the tenth grandchild in the Kardashian family.
