After dreaming of becoming parents for a second time, Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West were elated when they finally got the happy news.

“They’re beyond excited,” says a source close to the couple. “Kanye is beaming … he’s so happy!”

While daughter North, who turns 2 this month, is still quite young, her parents are conscious about wanting to do their best to prepare her for the newest addition to the family.

“North kind of understands there’s a baby in mommy’s belly,” says the source with a laugh. “But she thinks everyone has one!”

For now, North remains the top priority for her busy parents, who will welcome their second child in December.

“They love spending time at home together as a family,” continues the source. “They’re cherishing all their time together.”

Kardashian West, 34, and West, 37, tried to expand their family for eight months, but it wasn’t until the couple had the help of in vitro fertilization that they were able to conceive.

“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star recently told PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”

All goes downhill when you get a sibling North!

Lala on

And people care about this because they are super heroes who are out there saving the world from naked pictures and pimp families

Sick of them on

ALREADY SICK of these stories. It’s OBVIOUS that Kris is the “source”, or likely one of their own assistants. So sick of this family and I can’t wait for them to disappear. NOBODY CARES ABOUT THIS FAMILY!!!

kb on

Hmmmm. Wonder how her uterus got so damaged….. Oh…nevermind.

NNL, on

Thanks for the update Kris, I mean source close to the couple.

Ana on

a whole eight months?

guest on

Lala does the world need saving from naked pictures? So much belly aching about the family and yet reading the article and commenting breeds more articles. I find the family oddly entertaining and I think they are all very good looking girls. Still not a fan of Kanye, but his kid sure is cute.

Kaycee on

Wonder what they’ll name this one…….South, Due, or perhaps sticking with K’s..Key.

Xan on

Do any of you making such negative statements live such sad and horrible life? Quit judging this woman for something that happened years ago. You all act like you never had sex! I’m happy for them. They seem to be loving parents. He deserves to be happy like any of us. Keep it up kim! And no I don’t work for them and not kris. Just a grown mature woman that chooses not to judge.

Betty Rubble on

I can totally see them naming their baby South West then trying to trade mark it and expect Southwest Airlines to change their name. Oh, and do they really believe their almost 2 year old understands there’s a baby in mommy’s tummy already? This family is a joke.

maryhelenc on

I don’t care for these two, but North is cute as a button, so I don’t mind reading about her.

gina stoll on

As if they actually have the time to talk to their daughter? maybe through the nanny.

Alexis on

and so it goes, on and on and on. Month after excruciating month for all of us to endure until she has this child…

Mare on

oh good, now North will have a playmate and four more nannies will be hired.

Justme on

Who cares??? Pos

Ellwn on

I love the way he smiles at her. It’s adorable. And their daughter is an absolute doll. Congratulations!!

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! old Kimmie is finally pregnant again so lets here a big YIPPEE-KAI-YAY!!!!! Old Brucey is now free to dress like a female after all these years of lying, three wives and all those kids and he has implants to prove it. Old Rob made an appearance so when does it all stop as the Kardashian/Jenners are as boring as those Duggars who seem to have a problem with the truth also so what is so real about any of these folks?????

Becky on

“The inner lining had been so damaged” Not surprised considering who it is.

Sit down, little North. Some day when you’re a big girl, you can read all the articles about your half-naked mama publicly announcing the number of times per day she ‘tried’ for baby #2. Then you can look at all the photos of her big butt and other body parts. What a nice example for you to follow, dear little North. But fortunately you’ll have all the money you need for rehab and psychiatrists later on. Jeez….PEOPLE get off the Kardashian circus bandwagon! Give us stories about real stars and real people. Not trashy sluts with no morals, no taste and obviously no tact.

Congrats on having a sibling for North.

Cierra on

I’m happy for them. A child is a blessing and they seem like good parents. To all the people being negative, Kim K and her family are not going anywhere anytime soon and we all know it. They’re too hot right now. So either get used to it or stop reading about them.

Molly on

Good thing is we will be getting daily update on Kim’s pregnancy the next few months!

Laura on

Um..what is all of this talk of “oh, her uterus is ruined, no wonder!”. NEWS FLASH> the uterus is NOT the vagina. and no, a penis can NOT get in there. End rant. go back to sex ed.

Anonymous on

Or Laura, maybe you need to go back to sex ed? Guess what is connected to the vagina? The uterus! When someone gets diseases such as chlamydia or pelvic inflammatory disease they cause scarring on the uterus and possible fertility problems.

cheryl on

Kim is a nasty byotch…..Like who really cares about another kid…..Norht is NOT pretty at all….she always looks sad and hardly ever smiles……But look at the family she has…Oh well..
