Cape Town - The West family has welcomed a third bundle of joy!

All eyes shifted to one of Hollywood’s most famous families after Kim Kardashian West (37) took to her website to announce the birth of the little one via surrogate.

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kim shared.

“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.”

The reality TV star added that big sis North (4) and big brother Saint (2) are “thrilled” about their new sibling.  

Here’s what we know so far about the newest member to join Hollywood’s trendy tots:

1. It’s a girl!

It was during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in November last year that Kim accidentally revealed the gender of her baby. Then again, it’s not as if her lavish cherry-blossom themed baby shower never gave the gender away. Kim’s famous friends and family were in full attendance at the pink do.

2. She’s perfectly healthy

Kim revealed on her site that the baby weighs a healthy 3.3 kg. 

3. She was born in LA

It’s no surprise the little one was born at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Both Kourtney and Kim gave birth at the so-called hospital of the stars.

4. Keeping up with tradition

US Weekly reports that the family’s trusted doctor, Paul Crane, was the one to deliver the baby. The doctor previously appeared on the family’s reality show when he confirmed the gender of Kim’s baby and delivered Kourtney’s baby.

5. Mom held her first

According to Harper’s Bazaar, Kim – who was in the delivery room throughout – was the first to have skin-on skin contact with the baby.

The surrogate was allowed some time with the baby before she was handed over to her famous parents. Kanye reportedly stood behind a curtain during the birth but was eager to meet his little one when she was born.

Of course, the one thing everyone is dying to know is Kimye’s daughter’s name.

Soon after the birth was announced, fans flocked to Twitter to place their bets.

South and Star were clear favourites, with the latter being the name of choice of both North and Ellen.

Kim did say she prefers keeping names short and with one syllable so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if she opted for the suggestion.

After all, regardless of her name, when Kim and Kanye welcomed the little one into the world, a star was definitely born!
