Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed their third child. The couple first revealed the news on Kardashian West’s infamous reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. On the series, the 37-year-old told her younger sister Khloe, “What happens every time I say, ‘Guess what?’  Once Khloe guessed correctly, she revealed, “We’re having a baby!”

The third Kardashian West child, Chicago, made her January, this time via surrogate. Kardashian West had a stunning floral baby shower as she waits for her baby girl’s debut. Interestingly enough, the beauty mogul’s surrogate had no idea she was carrying Kardashian West’s child. This is how she found out.

Though Kardashian West was able to carry and birth her first two children, daughter North, and son Saint, a condition called placenta accreta, where the placenta attaches too deeply to the uterine wall, made carrying a third child life-threatening for the soon-to-be mom of three.

Kimye decided that they would use a surrogate to bring their next child into the world.
