Kim Kardashian confirmed that she and her husband, Kanye West, were expecting baby number four via surrogate back in January.
The announcement to the entire Kardashian family, however, just aired Sunday in the season premiere of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” The couple is already parents to three children, including two daughters, North and Chicago, and one son, Saint.
In the premiere, Kim sat down to talk with sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian; mom Kris Jenner; Kris’ boyfriend, Corey Gamble; and Kourtney’s ex-husband, Scott Disick.
“We’re having a baby. We’re having a boy,” Kim shared. (RELATED: Kanye West Partnered With Adidas To Launch Yeezy Lemonade Stands For Charity)
Later in the show, Kim revealed to her sister Kylie Jenner that she was “low-key freaking out” about the pregnancy. “I didn’t think it was going to happen,” Kim said. “I thought like, ‘Oh, it probably won’t even take.'”
Kim told the New York Times that she is “frantically” preparing the nursery for the new baby boy, who is due in May.
“I’m frantically trying to get the room ready,” Kim said. “It’s madness, but the best madness.”
Kim tried to keep the pregnancy a secret but told the family that North had shared the news with her friends at school. Kim had decided if she was going to tell anyone she would tell Kylie’s friends, who kept the secret of Kylie’s pregnancy all the way through.
Kim confirmed the pregnancy news on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” in January.
The reality TV star has opted to hire surrogates to carry her third and fourth child after her doctor revealed that she had had placenta accreta with her first two children. If she had decided to carry her next two children, she would have been required to get a hysterectomy, which would have potentially put her health at a major risk.
