The world was excitedly awaiting confirmation of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, but the big reveal was a double surprise - her birth announcement video also gave fans a first glimpse of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter Chicago! Kylie took to Instagram on Sunday (Feb. 4) to reveal the news that she and partner Travis Scott had welcomed a baby girl, breaking the silence she'd maintained throughout her pregnancy.
The 20-year-old shared her exciting news by gifting fans with an 11-minute-long video detailing her baby daughter’s journey into the world. But Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans were also quick to notice that during Kylie's amazing video, big sister Kim decided to allow her latest arrival, baby Chi, to be filmed and seen in public for the first time. As HELLO!reported previously, the 37-year-old welcomed her third child with husband Kanye just a couple of weeks ago.
Their little girl was born via surrogate. "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," the proud mother confirmed on her website at the time. "We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister."

Up until now, baby Chi had not been photographed, but she makes her on-screen debut in Kylie's birth announcement video. In the scene Kylie holds her newest niece and asks sister Kim if she's figured out a name. "I think we’re going to go with Chicago,"says the mom of three. Rob Kardashian and his daughter Dream are also filmed saying hello to their new family member.
Kim already shares four-year-old daughter North Westand two-year-old son Saint West with Kanye, and has always been open about her plans to expand her family. However, she was advised not to have a third pregnancy for medical reasons. Kim suffered with placenta accreta during her two pregnancies, which means the placenta's blood vessels attach too deeply to the uterine wall, and can lead to complications such as blood loss and the inability to conceive again. The reality TV queen has been open about her experiences with the condition in the past, describing the removal of the placenta following North's birth in 2013 as "the most painful experience of my life".
