Kanye West and Kim Kardashian welcomed their second child, named Saint West on December 5. Shortly before the birth, Kanye gave a 20-minute speech in accepting the ‘Shoe of the Year Award’ for his Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers. He donated 1,000 pairs of shoes to charity earlier this week.

West and Kardashian announced that they were expecting back in May, later confirming that the baby would be a boy.

Following the birth on Saturday, a statement was posted to Kardashian’s official website.

“Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well,” the statement read.
