Kim Kardashian is reportedly prepped and ready to be a mom for the third time — and it looks like there might be a new Ms. West in the family! Kim Kardashian's third baby is a girl, according to a Sept. 6 report from TMZ. Mazel and congrats to the happy parents!

The baby will be born via a surrogate, in January, according to TMZ. Back in June, it was reported that Kim and husband Kanye West were planning to use a surrogate to have their third child, because of Kim's difficult pregnancies. She's suffered a painful and potentially fatal condition called placenta accreta, where the placenta embeds too deeply in the uterus. Last month, Kim told The Hollywood Reporter that the couple was trying and hoping, though she stopped short of confirming anything. When asked about hiring a surrogate, she said,

I hope so. There have been a lot of things said, and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything. We're definitely trying. We are hoping so.

So, that's something, if not an absolute confirmation of either a third baby or gender, or really anything except that we're right to be on a hopeful lookout for baby news. A representative of Kim Kardashian declined to comment for this story.

Still, even on limited information, I'm already getting worked up about the prospect of a little sister for North, 4, and Saint, 21 months. I mean, oh my god, this is already precious.

What's even better? This means that there's a whole new generation of Kardashian sisters ahead of us.

Kim K and Kanye have their daughter and son, Rob Kardashian has his baby daughter Dream, and Kourtney Kardashian has two sons, Mason, 7, and Reign, 2, as well as a daughter, 5-year-old Penelope, with ex Scott Disick. And of course we know cousins Penelope and North are basically the living embodiment of #FriendGoals. But this will be the first actual set of sisters to carry on the Kardashian dynasty.

So, basically, now I'm just waiting for Season 25 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, when Nori and Penelope are planning their high-fashion takeover while Dream and our TBD Ms. West roll out their makeup kits. How far in advance can you set a TV reminder?
