It’s the second coming of Yeezus: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby boy has arrived -- a few weeks before his due date.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star and the Grammy-winning rapper welcomed their second child on Saturday, Kardashian announced to fans on her website and social media accounts. The child was presumed to be due around Christmas Day.

“Kanye and I Welcome Our Baby Boy!” the headline for the post read, followed by a statement from the couple that said: “Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.”

No additional details about the baby were given, including the child’s highly anticipated name. Rumors were rampant that the couple would give their second-born the moniker Easton or South, though the couple denied those reports. (Still, that doesn’t mean they won’t do it.)

“I suddenly dislike: All baby names I am hearing. We need to think of a good name. This is so hard! And nights. I hardly sleep at all!” she wrote in a questionnaire on her website this week.

Earlier this week, Kardashian, who has been very vocal about her many pregnancy woes, did share that doctors performed a procedure last weekend to turn the baby out of breech position so that he could be delivered vaginally in the usual head-down position. The selfie queen also said she gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy and shared several snapshots of herself impatiently waiting for her son’s arrival.

The ubiquitous pair are already parents daughter North, 2, who was born a month early in 2013 because Kardashian suffered from preeclampsia, a serious blood pressure disorder that she’s frequently discussed since her daughter’s arrival.

Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, wed in lavish ceremony in May 2014 that was filmed for E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” West proposed to Kardashian on her birthday in October 2013 by renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park and enlisting singer Lana Del Rey.
