After two extremely difficult pregnancies, Kim and Kanye decided to use a surrogate this time around. North and Saint's mom suffered from placenta accreta, and was advised by her doctors to not carry any more children herself, as it could become life-threatening.

According to TMZ, the baby is due at the end of January, which would put their surrogate at about 20 weeks pregnant -- halfway there! It seems like everything has gone off without a hitch so far, which must be a nice change for Kim after spending every moment of her older children's gestations worrying about everyone's health.

It's not surprising that Kim wants a big family, even if she decided she couldn't carry any more babies in order to protect her health. She did grow up with five siblings, after all, and the Kardashian-Jenner crew are famously close-knit.

The surrogate is reportedly well provided for, and will be paid $45K for her stint as Kimye's baby incubator. She's been given strict rules to refrain from smoking, drinking, doing drugs, using the hot tub, hair dyes, or eating raw fish.

Congrats to Kim, Kanye, North, and Saint! We can't wait to see your new little bundle in the new year.
