(CNS) – Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West welcomed their third child Tuesday.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kardashian West wrote in a message shared on her website and social media accounts. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”
The celebrity couple’s daughter was born at 12:47 a.m., according to Kardashian West, who used a surrogate because she has placenta accreta, a life- threatening condition that complicated her two previous pregnancies.
It was unclear where the baby was delivered, but the couple’s other two children were born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The surrogate mother lives in the San Diego area, according to the celebrity news website TMZ.com.
The couple did not say whether they have chosen a name for the 7- pound, 6-ounce newborn, who joins older sister North and older brother Saint.
