News that the couple was expecting their fourth child first broke back in January. This marks the second time Kim has welcomed a baby via surrogate. Previously, she opened up about suffering from placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall, which made it unsafe for her to get pregnant again naturally. She also opened up about the process of using a surrogate on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Congratulations to the happy (and growing) family!
