Monday morning was already a major one, in terms of baby news. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child. Then, a few hours later, rumors spread that another famous offspring arrived. However, Kim Kardashian shut down reports about her fourth baby's arrival pretty quickly. No, Kardashian and Kanye West's fourth child isn't actually here yet.
Clearing things up, Kim K. tweeted:
"Wait just saw news our baby boy came but that's not true! It's Met Monday, I’m in NYC. I would be at the hospital lol"
The reality star proceeded to share a few more tweets about the Met Gala, sharing photos of what she's worn to the event in the past. Kardashian wouldn't be tweeting about the A-list event if her fourth child had just entered the world — she'd be rushing to be with her newborn baby, which she and West are expecting via surrogate.
And while Kardashian was quick to clear things up, a tweet she sent earlier on Monday is part of the reason fans thought the baby had been born. She posted a screenshot of a few texts from West, one of which said she was "married with four kids." So it's understandable why fans might have taken that to mean they'd already welcomed their fourth child.
"This is your life / Married with four kids / Get people out of jail / Cover of Vogue / Go to church every week with your family / Dreams come true," West's text read.
The news that Kardashian and West are expecting a fourth child was first reported in January. At the time, Us Weekly reported that the baby was due in "very early May." So, now that we're six days into the month, it makes sense why fans are interpreting any small clue as being a sign that the baby has arrived.
Kardashian confirmed the baby news during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, revealing that the couple knew the baby would be a boy. Apparently, she'd started sharing the news at the family's Christmas Eve party, and word had started to spread.
Plus, Kardashian talked about the surrogacy process last May — Chicago was born in January 2018, also via surrogate — and she said at the time that she and West might have "one more" child. "I would have maybe one more [child]," Kardashian said during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan. "I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process."
And based on Kardashian's swift response to the speculation on Monday, fans probably won't have to wait long for her to confirm when the baby is born. Plus, the family shares plenty of photos and updates about their first three children, North, Saint, and Chicago. So there will likely be some sweet photos of the baby with his older siblings after his birth, too.
While Kardashian and West's fourth child could arrive any day now, it looks like tonight is all about the Met Gala for the KUWTK star. But it's clear from her affection for her and West's three children that the new baby will be showered with love, too. (And he won't be named after a direction, either.)
