Due to complications with her first two pregnancies, Kardashian West made the decision to have her third child carried by surrogate.

Despite the fact that the journey to grow her family has not been an easy one, the reality TV mogul was determined to have another child. “I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,” she explained on an episode of her reality show. “And if for some reason I left this Earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.”

Kardashian West was reportedly in the room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles when the surrogate gave birth, and dad Kanye West was present as well, but behind a curtain. Kardashian West was the first to have skin-to-skin contact with the newborn.

And that’s not all! Another baby is on the way for the famous fam: Khloe Kardashian‘s bundle of joy is due in late March or early April.

Congratulations to the happy family!
