The announcement of the baby’s gender came as a surprise to Kourtney Kardashian, who expressed surprise that her sister revealed it publicly.

“What? Obviously, I knew that,” Kourtney Kardashian said. “I couldn’t believe you were saying -- telling everyone.”

“It’s out there,” Kardashian West said. “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people, but I can’t remember who I told.”

Kardashian West didn’t say the method by which they are having their child, but previous reports said the baby boy, like Chicago West, will be carried by a surrogate.

In addition to half a dozen cousins, the newest West will join two sisters, 5-year-old North West and Chicago, who turned 1 Tuesday, and brother Saint, 3.
