While North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was busy firing off missiles, his wife appears to have given birth to a third child, according to South Korean reports.

Kim’s wife Ri Sol-ju reportedly gave birth in February, the National Intelligence Service, South Korea’s spy agency, revealed Tuesday. The gender and name of the child are unknown, Yonhap News Agency reports. This would be Kim’s third child, although it is possible that he may have more children.

Ri disappeared late last year, leading some to assume that she was pregnant. (RELATED: Kim Jong Un’s Wife Has Disappeared And Rumors Are Flying) Ri is somewhat of a mystery, much like most of the Kim family. She and Kim reportedly married around 2009, and she is believed to be around 30 years old.

Kim’s first and second child were reportedly born in 2010 and 2013, respectively. Not much is known about Kim’s first child, but the young dictator’s second child is a girl named Kim Ju-ae, according to Dennis Rodman, who accidentally revealed the information in an interview with The Guardian. Rodman said that he personally held Kim’s daughter.

Rodman described Kim as a “good dad” with a “beautiful family.”

News of the birth of Kim’s third child came out as tensions flared in the wake of an extremely provocative missile test, one in which North Korea fired a suspected intermediate-range ballistic missile over Japan.
