Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have welcomed a new baby girl into the world via a surrogate.

The baby girl was born at 12:47 am weighing 7lbs 6oz. According to sources, Kim and her 40-year-old spouse - with whom she already has North, four, and Saint, two - have splashed the cash on goods including a Swarovski-encrusted rocking horse and a $170,000 teddy bear.

The new baby is the third child for both Kim and Kanye. They chose to go that route after Kim suffered from placenta accreta (a scary condition in which the placenta doesn't leave the uterus right after birth, which can cause life-threatening bleeding) with both previous pregnancies.

They said the baby was born on Monday. The existing Kardashian-West kids aren't the only ones excited for the new baby's arrival.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was advised to not go forward with a third pregnancy for medical reasons.

Kardashian and West got engaged in October 2013 and tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, in May 2014.

Speaking about their decision to hire a surrogate, Kim previously told Entertainment Tonight: "You know, it is really different". She thanked her surrogate to help her Dreams come true.

She explained: "Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong".
