The Kardashians have a newest addition to their family with the birth of Kim Kardashian’s baby girl on Saturday, June 15th. The little girl was born at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to 32-year-old reality show star Kim Kardashian and 36-year-old music artist Kanye West. Their baby comes a little early with their announced due date not until July. While the name of the baby has not yet been released, the family is happily tweeting congratulations to the new mother.

The couple is not married, as Kim was still officially married to Kris Humphries only 11 days before the birth. The NBA player married Kim in 2011 and they filed for divorce only 72 days later. The divorce filings were long and difficult, and the courts finally announced the official divorce of Kris and Kim on June 4, 2013.

The baby will be Kim Kardashian’s first child, and the third grandchild of Kris Jenner. Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian, 34 years old, gave her mother the first two grandchildren, Mason and Penelope. Kim’s pregnancy was highly publicized, along with pregnancy partner Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. The Duchess’ baby is due in mid-July, and has been closely followed in the media. The two women were expected to have both their first babies be girls.

The Kardashian family has become a spectacle in media with their family being famous for various things. Kim gained her fame as a model, actress, business woman, and reality television star. Her two sisters, Kourtney and Khloe followed her into various business ventures as well. Their brother Rob graduated from USC and recently launched a sock line. Their father was the legendary Robert Kardashian who served as the defense attorney during O.J. Simpson’s murder trial in 1995. Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003. Kris Jenner remarried Bruce Jenner, the gold medal winner for the decathalon in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Kris and Bruce Jenner had two more children together, Kendall and Kylie. The entire family stars in Keeping Up with the Kardashians, an E! reality television series that follows the lives of the Kardashian/Jenner family. The series’ success led to the spin-offs Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
