We're told baby #3 is due at the end of January.
TMZ broke the story, Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate because she has a medical condition -- placenta accreta -- that became extremely serious during her second pregnancy and we're told it could become life-threatening if she tried to carry another baby to term.
They paid $45k for the surrogate, who is prohibited from smoking, drinking or doing drugs during the pregnancy. Also, no hot tubs, hair dye and raw fish.
We're told so far, so good.
Kim Kardashian opened up about a story TMZ broke in December 2015 ... no more pregnancies for her.
Kim says she wants a 3rd kid badly, but surrogacy seems to be her only option.
As we reported, she suffers from placenta accreta -- a potentially life-threatening condition caused when the blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall.
Kim underwent surgery on her uterus to correct the problem, but it was unsuccessful.
When Kim announced her baby’s name, Twitter users flocked to @SaintWest and were surprised to see a Canadian rapper owned the page ... for a few more hours, anyway.
Sources tell TMZ ... Twitter told the rapper via email his handle would be modified to @SaintWest___ -- not because Kim demanded it, but because his last tweet was in 2011!
Twitter policy states you must tweet at least once every 6 months to be considered active. We're told the sudden flood of interest in the name is how Twitter realized the rapping Saint West was asleep at the tweetin' wheel.
His old handle was snatched up quickly -- but NOT by the Kardashians, we're told. The new mystery owner's not dumb though ... he/she quickly followed Kim's account.
We smell a business transaction coming as soon as Saint can work a smartphone.
Kim Kardashian will never be seen giving birth to her son, because there wasn't a camera in sight.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, there is absolutely NO delivery room footage, and that was Kim and Kanye's doing.
What's more, we're told Saint West will not be appearing on any of the family's reality shows ... at least in the foreseeable future.
We're told the plan is to keep the baby off all shows until he develops an awareness. K&K kept North off TV for the first year of her life, and then only allowed her to appear on "special episodes" where the filming environment was tightly controlled.
As for now ... don't expect any Saints on TV.
Kendall Jenner didn't stick around in L.A. for very long after the birth of Kimye's new kid, heading across the pond.
Jenner touched down in London Sunday, a little more than 24-hours after the birth of Baby Yeezus. It's not totally clear if Kendall's seen the new addition yet -- we haven't seen her at the hospital -- but you can bet he'll get plenty of attention from his aunts.
Still waiting on that name ...
The Kanye for Prez questions were white noise ... way more interesting is how to keep a 2-year-old counting sheep in the middle of chaos.
Kanye West fears the paparazzi will fly drones over his home to get shots of his child in the pool and accidentally electrocute her.
TMZ has obtained a copy of Kanye's deposition in the lawsuit filed by a photog who was attacked by the rapper at LAX.
In the depo ... Kanye sarcastically asks the photog's lawyer, "Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she's trying to learn how to swim at age 1?"
Kanye goes on ... "Wouldn't you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?"
As for how that could happen, Kanye says, "Could it fall and hit her if that paparazzi doesn't understand how to remote control the drone over their house?"
Kanye then explains he and Kim are selling their $11 million Bel Air mansion because they didn't realize paparazzi could shoot directly from the street.
TMZ broke the story ... Kim and Kanye are in escrow for a $20 million secluded estate in Hidden Hills -- near Calabasas. But Kanye clearly thinks even his 3 1/2 acres are not private ... because of paparazzi-controlled drones.
Kim Kardashian is a master at spin ... showing the world she protects her kid in airports and on airplanes.
Kim showed up to LAX last night with North West, and displayed her baby in grandiose fashion, asking photogs for space because the kid was taking a snooze.
We're guessing it's not coincidental ... just last week North West flew coast-to-coast without Kim ... who took an earlier flight home. North was in the care of an entourage of hired help, but people criticized mommy for not taking the same plane.
Check out the video ... it's klassic Kardashian.
Kanye West clearly has new priorities ... leaving an epic birthday party for Leo DiCaprio in NYC and flying all night back to L.A. for North West's doctor's appointment.
We're told Kanye and Kim landed just before 6 AM ... and rushed home where Kanye picked up Nori and headed to the doctor's office in Bev Hills. FYI ... guess who didn't go? Mama K was otherwise engaged.
The kid's fine. It was just a routine baby visit.
Maybe it'll impress the judge in the assault case.
Bootyful day for a stroll in Santa Barbara today -- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ventured out this morning for a walk with baby daughter North West, and even though the sun was shining ... it was a full moon.
Nice break from L.A. court, where Kanye's lawyer Blair Berk pled not guilty on the rapper's behalf just a few hours ago in the photog-beating case.
For Kim, Kanye, and North West -- life is just a walk in the park.
Kim Kardashian says the negative media coverage surrounding her pregnancy "HURT MY SOUL" ... and now she says she's going to live a "more private life" because of it.
Look, Kim definitely has a point -- some people were downright mean when she was knocked up (we can recall a tabloid headline that read, "Kim Can't Stop Eating!")
But when Kim went on "The Tonight Show" last night and told Jay Leno that she was so affected by the negative criticism of her pregnancy that she'll be taking the fame-whoring down a notch, we weren't exactly convinced.
Exhibit A -- the butt-selfie
Exhibit B -- the baseball stadium wedding proposal
Exhibit C -- THE 15 CARAT DIAMOND RING!
Then again, we could be wrong. You buyin' it?
Even though both are packing major booty heat -- the question is ...
Kim Kardashian's gargantuan ass is back in working order ... and last night, she let the world know ... with a backside selfie on Instagram
It's the first butt-selfie Kim's taken since giving birth to Kanye West's baby North back in June.
Kim's been on a serious sexuality kick lately -- on the most recent episode of her reality show, she talked about wanting to pose NAKED asap ... saying, "As soon as I get in shape, the first thing I want to do is Playboy or some nude shoot. I just wanna walk down the street fully naked."
Looks ready to us.
Kim Kardashian is determined to move all of her baby weight back into her ass cheeks ... and by the looks of things, she's doing one helluva job.
KK hit the streets in Paris this week ... en route to a workout session at a local gym.
So, we gotta ask ...
BTW ... Kim's discovered one of the side effects of breast-feeding -- engorged boobs. Check out the video below ...
Looks like North West may pull a Ferris Bueller ... because her parents are out of the country and she's been left to her own devices in a big Calabasas mansion.
We overstate a tad. Our Kardashian baby sources tell us ... Kim and Kanye wanted to have a romantic trip to Paris, so they left their 3-month-old behind -- under the care of grandma Kris Jenner ... and, of course, several nannies.
So you may have seen pics of Kris in Sonoma over the weekend doing a little wine tasting. We're told it was a day trip, and while she was hitting the bottle, Khloe and Kourtney were subbing. We're also told it was the baby's first sleepover with cousins Penelope and Mason.
As for nourishment ... we're told Kim's ample breasts produced plenty of milk, some of which was frozen, so two words for that kid -- suck it.
Kim Kardashian says she hasn't been in hiding since the birth of North West ... it's debatable.
Kim was leaving a Sherman Oaks restaurant when one of the photogs asked her how it feels to be out of hiding. Her response is interesting.
The Hollywood post-baby game is to dump a lot of weight before stepping out in public. It's been 3 months since the kid was born and we've hardly seen Kim. She's definitely trimmed down and is pretty much back to being herself.
No surprise ... she's mum on Lamar.
