Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West welcome son
LOS ANGELES (December 5, 2015) —Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a new son to their family Saturday morning, the couple announced.
“Mother and son are doing well,” the couple said in a post on Kardashian’s official website.
It’s the second child for the celebrity couple, who tied the knot in May 2014 after years of courtship. Their first child, daughter North West, was born in June 2013.
The couple announced on Monday that they named their son Saint West.
Kardashian implied he was on the way Friday in posts on Twitter and Instagram captioned “waiting.”
Kardashian says she had preeclampsia during her first pregnancy, a rare condition that can be life-threatening.
Kardashian documented the ups and downs of this pregnancy in monthly updates on her website, from food cravings to placenta issues and complications from breech presentation. In a recent post, “My Baby Boy is Turnt,” she described undergoing an external cephalic version to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position.
“They don’t give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!! My baby is in the right position and it feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section,” she wrote.
