Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announce birth of baby boy

The superstar couple welcome North West’s sibling on Saturday in a Twitter post

North West is no longer Kimye’s Only One.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed a baby boy early Saturday in Los Angeles.

“He’s here!” the reality star teased on Twitter. An announcement on Kardashian’s website read, “KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!”

He's here!

The statement posted on Kardashian West’s website said mother and son are doing well.

Kardashian West has tracked her pregnancy online for her 37 million Twitter followers, posting an image late Friday of her bare belly:

Ready whenever you are lol

The reality star’s original due date was Christmas Day, but she decided to be induced earlier after encountering complications during her pregnancy. Earlier this week, Kardashian West had revealed that her baby was no longer breech, after undergoing a medical procedure “which is done to manually turn the baby”.

This is the second child for the superstar couple: daughter North was born in 2013.

Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, were married last year in Florence, Italy, in a gala ceremony filmed for E!’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

West was in New York earlier this week for the Footwear News Achievement Awards, where he gave a 20-minute acceptance speech when his Adidas Yeezy Boost sneaker was named shoe of the year.
