Kim Kardashian has welcomed a baby boy.
In a statement on her website kimkardashianwest.com a representative for the couple wrote:
‘Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed the arrival of their son this morning.
‘Mother and son are doing well.’
Along with the statement was a picture of the couple holding hands. Such was the flurry of interest that the website crashed under the weight of traffic.
