Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West welcomed son

Christmas came early for the Kardashian West family.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West welcomed their second child, a son, on Saturday morning.

“Mother and son are doing well,” according to Kardashian West’s website.

Though they haven’t released a name, the couple has promised to steer clear of naming their son South. And while Kardashian West, 35, loved the name Easton, she admitted it likely would not work as West, 38, wasn’t a fan.

“He’s here!” the reality star teased on Twitter. An announcement on Kardashian’s website reads, “KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!”

A representative for the couple confirms to The Associated Press that mom and baby are doing well. There was no immediate word on the baby’s name.

Kardashian West has tracked her pregnancy online for her 37 million Twitter followers, posting an image late Friday of her bare belly with the caption, “Ready whenever you are lol.”

“We read books with her about getting a baby brother and a new sibling all the time! We always say goodnight to baby brother,” Kardashian West wrote on her website in October.

But giving their baby girl a sibling wasn’t easy.

The couple have been open about the challenges they faced to conceive, including Kardashian West’s successful in vitro fertilization treatment.

“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star told PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”

This is the second child for the stellar couple: Daughter North was born in 2013.

Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, were married last year in Florence, Italy, in a gala ceremony filmed for E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” West proposed to his bride in October 2013, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion.

West was in New York earlier this week for the Footwear News Achievement Awards, where he gave a rambling 20-minute acceptance speech after his Adidas Yeezy Boost sneaker was named shoe of the year.

However, the expectant star went one step further when she dared to bare it all in a nude shot she posted to social media in August. The photo, she explained, was meant to shut down the critics slamming her baby bump.

“I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate,” she wrote. “Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too!”

But perhaps one of her most comfortable maternity outfits came courtesy husband West’s closet. In September, Kardashian West stepped out sportingthe rapper’s vintage Ramones tee — a far cry from the crop top she wore to dinner days earlier!

In October, Kardashian West celebrated her Troop Beverly Hills-themed baby shower with family and friends.

The final weeks of her pregnancy proved difficult, as she was “feeling fat as f—” and the baby was found to be breech. After undergoing an external cephalic version, Kardashian West’s son turned, much to the relief of his mother.

“It feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section,” she wrote on her website and app.

In her final pregnancy update Friday, Kardashian West tweeted, simply, “Ready whenever you are.”
