Kim Kardashian’s family is swooning over her new baby girl with Kanye West.
The reality TV starlet, 32, gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday in Los Angeles, about a month before her expected due date and just in time for West, 36, to celebrate Father’s Day.
Few details are known about the child, except that she came early and is healthy. Her name (likely starting with a K?), birth vitals and whether she was delivered via natural birth or C-section are still unknown.
“She has dark hair,” a source told E! News. “She looks just like Kim.”
The new mom has been quiet on social media this weekend, and not surprisingly; however, on Sunday she did post a photo collage and message on her blog celebrating her late father Robert Kardashian, the O.J. Simpson defense lawyer, and her stepdad Bruce Jenner, the Olympic gold medalist and her mother’s current husband.
But that hasn’t stopped Kardashian’s social media-savvy family from speaking up, though they’re staying mum on the details for now, following suit with Kardashian’s desire to begin being more discreet about her personal life after the media frenzy that took place after her short-lived marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.
“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,” her younger sister Khloe Kardashian tweeted Sunday.
“More info will come when the time is right!” she added. “Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now ♥"
“HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest !!!!!!” tweeted Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, later adding, “God is so amazing!!! #Jesuslovesthelittlechildren,” which she posted with a screengrab of Khloe’s tweets on Instagram.
“We’re all fine. We’re all good and extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby,” Jenner told HLN when she attended the Daytime Emmy Awards after her daughter’s labor. “And she’s doing great and she’s beautiful! So very exciting.”
Jenner, the ex-wife of Robert Kardashian, is now a grandmother three times over. She set off for the Daytime Emmy Awards with Jonathan Cheban, a friend of the family, who also shared the happy news.
“Kim is doing amazing and couldn’t be happier,” Cheban told People at the awards on Sunday. “I’m so thrilled for her and Kanye.”
Cheban, 39, added that “Kim was glowing” when he visited her at the hospital over the weekend.
Kardashian and West began dating in April 2012 after being friends for years. They made the announcement that they were expecting on Dec. 30.
