Kim Kardashian is thrilled to have a new baby girl, her mother has said.
Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West have kept silent despite multiple reports that she gave birth over the weekend, but Kris Jenner said her daughter is “extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby and she’s doing great and she’s beautiful”.
Kardashian’s sister Khloe appeared to have let the word slip on Twitter on Sunday, writing: “I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love.”
She quickly followed with a second tweet: “More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”
Ms Jenner linked to both tweets on her Twitter account, then wished West a happy Father’s Day.
Asked for comment on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys, where she was a presenter, Ms Jenner said, “She’s in charge,” pointing at her publicist who whisked her away from print reporters after doing TV interviews.
The reality TV star’s pregnancy was almost as anticipated as the royal pregnancy of Kate Middleton, who is due in mid-July, which is about the time the Kardashian baby had been due.
The 32-year-old has often been photographed since announcing she was pregnant, opting to continue to wear designer clothing. She said in April that she eventually embraced being an expectant mother after getting past “the awkward phases and stages”.
The couple initially kept the baby’s gender a secret, but the sex was revealed earlier this month during one of her doctor appointments on the family’s reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
When asked about how much the baby might be featured in the E! series, the channel said it was “thrilled for Kim and Kanye and out of respect for their privacy won’t be offering any further comment”.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, West said he did not like talking about his family or the arrival of his child, adding: “Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
