The Kardashians have had pregnancy trending worldwide for months, with Kim and Khloe confirmed pregnant and rumors of Kylie Jenner being with child swirling at Category 5 levels. And now, we have our first Kardashian birth of the year!

This morning (Jan. 16), Kim confirmed the arrival of her daughter via surrogate, her third child and the first Kardashian spawn to come this year. "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," Kim K wrote to fans on her website. "We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister." The brand new baby girl was born early Monday morning (Jan. 15) at 12:47 a.m. Pacific time, weighing seven pounds and six ounces.

Kardashian West has been very open about the physical complications she has experienced with pregnancy. In 2015, she told E! that she didn't believe conception was possible when she became pregnant with her second child — her son, Saint West, who arrived in Dec. 2015 — and was "miserable" the entire time she carried him. While pregnant with the couple's first daughter, North West — who was born in June 2013 — Kardashian West suffered from preeclampsia. She wrote on her website about the high-risk pregnancy. The reality star also told E! in 2015 that she just doesn't "think pregnancy and me really agree with each other." Maybe not, but being a mother clearly does.

Congratulations to the entire West family!
