Kim Kardashian shares first photo of her and Kanye West’s newborn daughter Chicago

Chicago was born through a surrogate in January

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have unveiled the first photo of their new baby daughter, Chicago.

The couple’s surrogate gave birth to the baby girl on January 15, at 12.47am, with the baby weighing 7lbs and 6oz. Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate to give birth to their third child, after doctors warned of potential health risks if Kim carried her own child.

Kardashian previously announced on her blog that they’ve named the child Chicago West, continuing their preference for non-traditional names begun by their first-born North and son Saint.

Now Kardashian has shared a selfie of her and her newborn daughter, along with a caption that simply reads: “Baby Chicago”. See that post beneath.

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” the reality TV star wrote in January.

“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.”

Kanye married reality TV star Kardashian in 2014. Their first-born, daughter North “Nori” West, was born in 2013, with son Saint West following in 2015.

The surrogate for their third child was reportedly paid $45,000 (£32,676).

Kanye West is thought to be working on his eighth album. Here’s everything we know about it.
