Kim Kardashian West finally confirmed on 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen' that she and Kanye West will be having their fourth kid via surrogacy and she will be having a baby boy. The 38-year-old actress appeared Monday night with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian. Cohen didn't take long to ask her if she was "working on another child."

"We are," Kardashian West responded to the question. The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star also revealed, "The baby is due sometime soon. It’s a boy, I think it’s been out there.” Kardashian West told Cohen, "I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk," Kardashian West added when Cohen asked if she's telling this to everyone else.

Kim verified that it's a boy. Names for the baby boy were suggested by the viewers and it kept everyone on the hook. Though the name 'Calabasas' won the pool, it's unlikely the couple, who's baby is due in May, will keep it.

A source close to E News said: "Kim and Kanye have known for a while and are very excited. They had one male embryo left and are thrilled it has worked out. Kim always wanted four kids and having two boys and two girls feel perfect. They were very happy with the entire experience the first time and are so grateful to have one more baby."

The couple welcomed their third child, Chicago West, via surrogacy last January. The couple also has a daughter North, 5, and a 3-year-old son, Saint. Kardashian West was very private with the news of her pregnancy with the third child. She didn't reveal it until she was well into her pregnancy. 

In the past too, Kardashian West has been very open about her desire for a fourth child. "I would," she told 'Live with Kelly and Ryan' in May last year. "I would maybe try for one more." She added she would have to go through the surrogacy route once again, as it is not medically safe for her to deliver a baby. Kardashian West suffers from pre-eclampsia, a complication characterized by high blood pressure and thus not fit for a normal delivery.

"I enjoyed the surrogacy process. When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made — it's a game changer," she said. "I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby."
