The news was announced via a statement on her website Kimkardashianwest.com.
Daily Mail reported that a representative of the family wrote the statement which reads: “Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed the arrival of their son this morning.
“Mother and son are doing well.”
Following Kim’s last post on her Instagram (on Friday, December 4), where she posted a picture and captioned it “Ready whenever you are. LOL,” it appears she had a feeling that the delivery time was nearer than expected.

It was initially reported that the expected delivery date was Christmas day (December 25, which would have made the 35-year-old TV star about 37 weeks pregnant), but the baby has been born some three weeks earlier.
This is not the first time she is delivering a baby ahead of expected date.
According to Daily Mail, Kim delivered her first child North West five weeks before expected date owing to blood pressure issues.
Earlier in October, the couple geared up for the delivery of their second child by reserving a Deluxe Maternity Suite in Los Angeles following medical reports that the baby would be born in December.
