Kim Kardashian confirms she is having a fourth child with Kanye West

Kim Kardashian might well be one of the most famous people in the world, but that doesn't mean that she isn't a great parent. As anyone who follows her on social media will tell you, Kim absolutely loves being a mom, and regularly uploads snaps of herself and her kids, North, Saint and Chicago.

However, Kim has now shocked her fans by announcing some wonderful news: Kanye and Kim are expecting a fourth baby together. Not only that, but they seem to have already picked a name for the child.

In a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kim confirmed the couple were expecting a boy via a surrogate mother, adding that she'd let the cat out of the bag over the Christmas period while under the influence.

She stated: "I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can't remember who I told because I never get drunk," before adding that the due date would be "sometime soon."

A source close to the couple has allegedly told E! News: "The surrogate is well into the pregnancy. She is due in May and everything looks good. Kim and Kanye have known for a while and are very excited. They had one male embryo left and are thrilled it has worked out. Kim always wanted four kids and having two boys and two girls feels perfect."

Kim gave birth to her daughter North West, on June 15, 2013, and her son Saint West, on December 5, 2015, but decided to use a surrogate for her third child, Chicago West, after both pregnancies proved to be difficult ordeals.

While pregnant with North she suffered from preeclampsia, a disease which causes high blood pressure which can lead to a low blood platelet count, impaired liver function, kidney dysfunction, swelling, and shortness of breath.

As a result of this, Kim was forced to deliver North after 34 weeks, and also suffered from placenta accreta after delivery, which caused heavy bleeding. She had to have surgery to remove the placenta and subsequent scar tissue as a result. Following this, doctors apparently advised her not to become pregnant again; the couple's third child was born via surrogate on January 15, 2018. 

In the same interview, Kim also opened up about her well-publicized feuds with Taylor Swift and Drake. She revealed that she and Tay-tay have more or less buried the hatchet over the whole lyrics scandal, but also mentioned that she's still antagonistic towards Drake, especially after Kanye claimed that Drake threatened his family.

Perhaps they'll be able to kiss and make-up in the new year, but somehow I don't think so. Here's a little lesson for you Drake: don't mess with a momma bear.
