He's here! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby boy has arrived.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star announced the big news on Twitter Friday (May 10), writing "He's here and he's perfect!"
Kim later added, "He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her ✨."
This is Kim and Kanye's fourth child. Their new bundle of joy, whose name they've yet to reveal, joins siblings North West, 5, Saint West, 3 and Chicago West, 15 months.
As previously reported, Kourtney Kardashian revealed that Kim's surrogate was in labor on Thursday (May 9) while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "My mom doesn't even know this but Kim’s surrogate went into labor," she told Ellen at the time. "So she’s at the hospital."
Kris Jenner then responded, "No! What are we doing sitting here? C’mon Ellen, let’s go!"

Last month, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with her sisters Khloé and Kourtney, Kim opened up about her process of picking a name for her son. "We all weigh in [on the name]," Kim explained to Jimmy. "I definitely take a family survey, but it’s usually after the baby’s born and we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like. I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects with me."
While the mom-of-three admitted that she typically doesn't lock-in a name until after her child arrives, she said she usually has a few in mind before their arrival. For baby number four, Kim said she even thought about naming him after her brother, Rob Kardashian.
"I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob, [after] my brother," Kim explained. "But then it’s like, North, Saint, Chicago, Rob," she said with a blank look on her face, emphasizing that the name Rob would not fit with her other children's unique names. "It doesn’t really go. I really was feeling that, or Robert. And my brother approved it, so that’s our one kind of name. I like Rob West." Kim added: "I was Googling Armenian boys’ names last night, and I couldn’t really find anything."
