Kim Kardashian gave birth to her second child with Kanye West, a boy, on Saturday December 5, in Los Angeles.
“He’s here!” Kim announced on Instagram at 11:15am E.S.T.
The baby arrived three weeks early, but probably technically full-term and according to Kim’s website she and baby are “doing well.”
Kim and Kanye have a 2 year-old daughter together – North West, who also arrived early. North was delivered at 34 weeks, almost 6 weeks early, due to early-onset preeclampsia.
Kim also experiences placenta accreta after her first baby, a condition where the placenta stays attached to the uterus, and says of the experience: “My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails,” she added of the painful experience. “My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before.”
