Kim Kardashian West confirms baby boy is due ‘sometime soon’

KIM Kardashian West has confirmed she is expecting her fourth child with Kanye West – and that it’s a boy.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday night, where she spoke for the first time about the news that the couple are set to welcome their second child via a surrogate after daughter Chicago was born via a different surrogacy mother, 12 months ago.

The show’s host – who is expecting his first child via surrogate – asked Kim if she was “working on another child”, to which she replied, “We are.”

The KKW Beauty businesswoman – who also has daughter North, five, and son Saint, three, with the Famous rapper – then revealed that their unborn baby is due “sometime soon”, before revealing the sex of their forthcoming addition to the family.

Kim, who was joined by her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on the couch, told Andy, “It’s a boy, I think it’s been out there.”

The 38-year-old reality star then confessed that she let the news, which was first reported two weeks ago, slip at a Christmas Eve party.

She admitted, “I was at our Christmas Eve party and told some people.”

A source recently claimed that Kim and Kanye, 41, are “closer” than ever now they have another baby on the way.

An insider said, “Kim and Kanye seem great. They had a really nice trip to Aspen and always enjoy spending time in Miami. They seem very happy and close.

“When they waited for Chicago to arrive, it was the same – having another baby seems to always bring them closer. They are very excited about having another baby this year.”

Kim’s mum Kris Jenner was recently quizzed on their “expanding family”, but wanted to wait for her daughter to announce their happy news.

When Extra host Mark Wright asked, “It looks like (your family) is expanding, Kim and Kanye having another baby”, Kris replied: “Well … it’s always a full house!”

Kim – who makes money no option when it comes to throwing lavish parties – is said to be planning “some sort of shower” to celebrate. – BANG!
