Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are now parents to a third child. Kardashian announced on her official site that the couple’s surrogate gave birth on Monday to a baby girl. The baby was born without complications.

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kardashian wrote. “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. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”

She wrote that the child weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces. Kardashian and West used a surrogate because Kardashian has placenta accrta, which caused complications with the birth of their second child.

TMZ also reports that Kardashian was in the delivery room for the birth and was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the girl. West was in the delivery room, behind a curtain, and came out after the baby was born to hold her.

On behalf of 411, congratulations to the family on their new addition.
