Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Khloe finally confirmed the safe arrival of her new niece on Sunday, who was born five weeks premature in Los Angeles on Saturday morning.
Khloe Kardashian, 28, also assured Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans that more news about the baby, including her name, which is rumored to begin with the letter K, will be revealed soon.
Writing on Twitter on Sunday, Khloe Kardashian said: “I can not even begin 2 describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy & resting. We appreciate all of the love.”
The reality star added: “More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”
The messages were re-tweeted by her mother Kris Jenner, who also wished the rapper well for his first Father’s Day.
Kris Jenner wrote: “HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest!!!!!!”
The family matriarch later posted a collage of photos, featuring Kanye West, 36, her husband Bruce Jenner, her son-in-law Lamar Odom, her daughter Kourtney’s boyfriend Scott Disick and her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian, with the caption: “Well hello boys!!! Happy Fathers Day to the most wonderful men in the world!!! Thank you for being incredible Daddy’s I love you @letthelordbewithyou @reallamarodom @kanyewest Bruce and Our beloved Robert!!!”
Kanye West previously vowed to protect the privacy of his baby girl and is said to have urged Kim Kardashian, 32, to take a step back from the limelight for the sake of their daughter.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby, who was born at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, weighed in at just “under five pounds” at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and was almost one month premature.
The reality star was initially given July 12 as her due date – the same birthday of Kanye West’s departed mother, Donda West.
The baby was delivered at the same hospital where her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her partner Scott Disick had their two children Penelope and Mason.
Proud father Kanye West, who skipped out on a listening party for his latest album in Los Angeles on Friday, was at Kim Kardashian’s side during the birth when the baby was delivered naturally and without any complications.
