Kardashian baby is a little Saint

The newest member of the Kardashian family has been named Saint West.

Kim Kardashian, 35, welcomed the baby boy's arrival with her husband, Kanye West, at the weekend.

The baby's name was announced on the reality television star's website with a short post that read: "Saint West. 12.05.15. 8 pounds, 1 ounce."

The two are already parents to daughter North who was born in June 2013.

On Saturday, a post appeared on the same website announcing news of the birth and declaring "Mother and son are doing well".

Twelve hours before she told the world about the birth she posted a photo of her bare bump, writing: "Ready whenever you are lol."

The star has shown off her bump in an array of fitted outfits throughout her pregnancy.

On November 30 she tweeted: "I'm convinced pregnancy just isn't my thing lol."
