Despite having a difficult pregnancy, Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, have just welcomed their second baby to the world on December 5th! Here is what you need to know about the selfie queen and her new little one.

1. Kim Kardashian was worried that she would have to have a C-section.

Kim had already had a difficult labor with her first child, North, so she was understandably nervous about going into labor again. Although she was hoping to have a natural birth with her new baby boy, Kim Kardashian learned that her baby was breech just a few days before giving birth. This means that the baby was positioned feet-first to exit her womb, instead of head first, and makes delivery considerably more difficult.

2. Kim Kardashian underwent a External Cephalic Version to turn the baby around.

Since she was striving for a natural birth, not a C-section, Kim Kardashian decided to undergo a procedure called External Cephalic Version in order to turn her breech baby the right way around. During the procedure, three doctors worked carefully to turn the baby over. Kim shares how scary the process was for her saying “There was a risk that my water might break or the baby’s heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place…This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!”

3. Kim Kardashian suffered from huge anxiety leading up to the birth.

Leading up until the moment she went into labor, Kim had been extremely anxious about giving birth. In addition to the baby being breech and fears that she would have to undergo a C-section, Kim Kardashian also had problems with her placenta. Another concern of hers was how much weight she had gained during the pregnancy. Having gained 52 pounds, Kim was at a risk of several health complications that included the possibility of developing gestational diabetes, which could have affected both her and the baby.

4. Kim is considering naming her son Easton.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made headlines when they named their first baby North West. Now, after fans of the celebrity couple have constantly suggested the name to her, Kim is considering naming her new little boy Easton West. However, she said that Kanye isn’t really a fan of the name Easton, so the baby’s name is still under discussion. We do know that she won’t be naming it South West, at least, as the celebrity shared “It’s definitely not South, every time someone says South, I just want to roll my eyes.”

5. Kourtney Kardashian’s calming influence helped Kim through the birth.

Giving birth is a difficult thing for any woman to go through, but considering that Kim Kardashian had already had a difficult delivery the first time, it’s no surprise that she was scared to go through it again. A source has revealed that it was her sister Kourtney’s influence and calm words that helped Kim through the delivery, saying “She was very thankful to have Kourtney with her during the pregnancy, because she really leans on her in times of need.”

6. Kanye West cried after the birth of his son.

Bringing a new baby into the world is just as special for a father as it is for the mother, so Kanye was understandably moved by the birth of his first son. According to a source, during the first time that he held the baby, “Kanye placed one of his fingers on the baby’s heart and told Kim that he and his son’s heartbeat have the same rhythm. It was such an emotional moment for Kanye.”

7. The baby’s middle name is Robert, after Kim’s father.

Kim Kardashian’s late father will never have the chance to meet his new grandson, but Kim gave him a loving tribute and decided that her baby’s middle name would be her father’s name, Robert. While the baby’s first name has not been revealed yet, fans are touched by Kim’s moving decision to name her baby after her father, who she apparently had a huge amount of love and admiration for.

8. Kim and her new baby have been continuously receiving presents since the birth.

Kim Kardashian and her baby will surely want for nothing – reports have it that the deluxe maternity suite that the celebrity is resting in is overflowing with presents from her friends and family. Two weeks ago, Kim had said that she was hoping for a $1 million diamond choker as a thank you present from her husband for delivering his first son, but no word yet on whether Kanye West has delivered on her request.
