Psalm was born on May 9 via a surrogate, People reported. He is the couple’s fourth child.

Daughter North is 6 years old, son Saint is 3 years old, and daughter Chicago is only 16 months old.

Kardashian posted the first photo of Psalm on Twitter, which was a screenshot of a text message exchange with Kanye. She revealed the new child’s name at the top of the post.

“Beautiful Mother’s Day / With the arrival of our fourth child / We are blessed beyond measure / We have everything we need,” wrote Kanye in the text message of the Twitter post.

Kanye West’s birthday was on Saturday. He hasn’t been active on Twitter recently, but wife Kim’s social media feeds were full of birthday wishes for him.

“Happy Birthday. To my amazing husband, who never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for who you are, and all that you do. I love you!” Kim posted on Instagram, along with a photo of Kanye smiling in what looks like a screenshot from a video chat.

New Kanye West Music

Kanye West is reportedly releasing new music soon. West’s highly anticipated “Yandhi” album now has no official release date after multiple delays.

News outlets are reporting that a new Kanye West song will be released on July 2, based on a Breakfast Club interview with Irv Gotti. Gotti explained that usually his TV show “Tales” features stories from songs that already exist, but he says the season premiere will be two hours long and feature new music from a “huge huge huge artist.”

Ja Rule was also interviewed, and when asked what region the artist Gotti refers to is from he says “midwest,” which fits Kanye’s Chicago origins. Then Gotti says, “controversial.”

One of the show hosts, Angela Yee, takes a guess and says “Eminem.” Gotti responds in the negative by saying, “You know we don’t do [expletive] with that guy.”

“The biggest, hugest artist who’s been the most controversial in the last year.”

Show host DJ Envy then takes a confident guess and says “Kanye West is going to be on the season premiere of ‘Tales.’”

“I didn’t say it! I didn’t say it!” says Gotti.

“He’s not acting in it, but I have, maybe a song!” Gotti clarifies.
