The Kardashians (and the Kardashian Wests) do it big. Their personal celebrations (please see Kylie Jenner鈥檚 bday and Kim KW鈥檚 baby shower-themed-surprise-birthday) are generally grand and globe-trotting and public announcements usually involve a TV special, an exclusive cover story and/or the launch of some new, branded product. With the arrival of their son weeks early, Kim and Kanye decided to announce West Jr.鈥檚 birth this morning with a message that might surprise you 鈥 and might even give minimalists moms some inspiration.


In a sweet 鈥榥鈥 simple message on her website, Kim posted the below photo of her and Kanye holding hands along with the note:

Kanye and I Welcome Our Baby Boy!聽Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.


Congratulations to mother, son, father 鈥 and, of course, newly minted big sis North West. Now, ahem, about that baby name鈥 (My personal favorite? 鈥淜lique West,鈥 from this funny聽article in The New Yorker. Just sharing the inspo, guys.)
