While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have stayed pretty quiet over the course of the last few months with regards to their third child, which is being carried by a surrogate, TMZ has obviously been all over the latest developments in the surrogate’s pregnancy. They have reported everything from when the baby is due (January) to how much the surrogate is scheduled to make for helping with the pregnancy process ($45,000). Back in September, TMZ even reported that Kim and Kanye are expecting a baby girl, according to "sources familiar with the pregnancy."
Up until now, Kim and Kanye had been yet to confirm or deny any of those details shared by TMZ. But on Wednesday, Kim will appear on Ellen, and while speaking with Ellen DeGeneres about the couple’s latest bundle of joy, she accidentally slipped and revealed that it will, in fact, be a baby girl. She did it while talking about how her 4-year-old daughter North has been dealing with the impending birth of her baby sister.
"People brought toys and gifts and she was opening them all up the next day," Kim told Ellen. "And she said, 'Mom, since baby sister’s not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room and I’ll play with them and just make sure they’re all OK for baby sister.'"
Ellen responded by saying: "She’s a toy tester—and you just told us it’s a girl."
Outside of confirming the gender of the baby, Kim also talked about the baby’s name and said that, unfortunately, her and Kanye have been unable to come up with anything yet. She said they are "freaking out" about it and even asked those who attended the shower for the baby to try and help them come up with some ideas.
"We don’t have a name," she said, "and at the baby shower, I was like, 'I don’t want to play any games, measuring the belly, none of that will work for this time around. I just want everyone to write a name on a little tile and see if there’s something that sticks.' We’re freaking out. We have no name."
Ellen responded by breaking out a baby name generator. Kim's full Ellen episode airs on Wednesday.
