The power couple of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have added to their family, with the help of a surrogate. TMZ reports that the couple's surrogate mother gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Monday. It's child No. 3 for the pair and the first time they've used a surrogate. Kardashian had complications with the birth of their second child, Saint, that made giving birth to another child too risky.

"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," Kim said in a statement, per E! Online. "We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give," she said, adding that "North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister." No word yet on a name, but the new arrival weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces. (More Kim Kardashian stories.)
