It’s official! Kim Kardashian West confirmed she’s having another baby boy. This will be Kardashian West’s second child via surrogacy.

Kardashian West appeared on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Jan. 14 along with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, CNN reported. Cohen, who also recently announced he’s expecting his first child via surrogate, asked if she was “working on another child.”

“We are,” Kardashian West said. When asked if they knew it was a boy or a girl, she said, “It’s a boy,” and he’s due “sometime soon.”

“It’s out there,” she said about the news. “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party, and I told some people, but I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.”

Multiple sources previously confirmed to Us Magazine that the couple are expecting their fourth child via surrogate. The publication added that, according to an inside source, there was only one embryo left, a male. The baby boy is due at the start of May, another insider said. The baby will join children North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 11 months, according to the publication.

Earlier in 2018, Kardashian West said she might have another baby. “I would maybe try for one more,” she told “Live on Kelly and Ryan,” according to the New York Daily News. However, she made sure to add she would go the surrogacy route once again, as it is not medically safe for her to deliver a baby.

Over the years she has been open about her struggles to get pregnant. She documented the process on the reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” While pregnant with North, Kardashian West suffered from pre-eclampsia, a complication characterized by high blood pressure. Then again when she was pregnant with Saint, she had placenta accreta, which occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply in the uterine wall. She said she was prepared to have her uterus removed following the birth of Saint, according to CNN. However, she ended up not having to undergo the surgery. Later, she opted to expand her family via surrogate.

The Benefits of Surrogacy

“I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process,” she said last May. “When it came to the breastfeeding time, I was like ‘OK, this is the best decision I ever made,'” she said.

“It’s a game changer,” she said. “Having to not go through that every few hours, breastfeeding, I can spend so much more time with the older kids and getting them all used to the baby.”

In January 2018, Kardashian West also spoke about having a surrogate. “Although I never would have expected to go through something like this, the agency was so helpful and made me feel at ease about the whole process,” she said. “Kanye and I were so blessed to have found the most amazing gestational carrier. We have a great relationship with her and trusted her completely throughout the entire process,” she wrote.

However, as of August 2018, there didn’t seem to be any plans to have more children. According to E! News, Kardashian West said, “We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it’s gonna happen, you’ll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no.”

Perhaps she decided to make her older daughter’s dreams come true. Kardashian West said during an interview on Ashley Graham’s podcast “Pretty Big Deal” that North was hoping for another brother, according to People. “North acts like an only child at all times,” she said. “I think she’s a little confused. She’s beyond jealousy now. She just like, ‘It’s my world.'”

It seems North is having a hard time accepting her siblings. Kardashian West added that North “said to me the other day, ‘Mom…we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone…so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house.'”

With baby No. 4 on the way, soon the Kardashian West family will be a party of six.
