On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child into the world via a surrogate. Last year, Kim Kardashian revealed she was expecting a child via surrogacy because she suffers from a rare condition called placenta accreta. She opened up in an interview a few years ago saying:
I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple little operations to fix all that so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again.
Kim, however, knew she wanted to have another baby and for a while, went back and forth with her husband and family deciding whether or not she would try to get pregnant naturally again or decide to take another route. After having severe pain and trauma after having her son, Saint West, she decided to opt for another option.
Kim and Kanye both kept their surrogate out of the media spotlight and never revealed her name or identity–which, is the contract most agencies offer (whether or not you’re an A-list celebrity). On Tuesday, Kim announced on her website that she and Kanye are the proud parents of another beautiful baby girl.

Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.
