Kim Kardashian's surrogate reportedly goes into labor

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's surrogate has reportedly gone into labor with their fourth child, TMZ and E! News reports.

Kris Jenner appeared as a guest on Ellen DeGeneres's show on an episode filmed on Thursday where she was surprised with six of her grandchildren. Kourtney Kardashian ushered out her children, Mason, Penelope and Reign and Kim's children, North, Saint and Chicago.

Both Kourtney and the TV show host explained to Kris that Kim was supposed to be present for the family surprise; however, Kim found herself predisposed.

"Kim was supposed to be here," DeGeneres says in a video shared on her Twitter account.

"My mom doesn't even know this," Kourtney says. "But Kim's surrogate went into labor, so she's at the hospital."

Jenner, in utter surprise, says, "No! What are we doing sitting here?"

"We had to keep it quiet," DeGeneres explains in the video. "That's why [Kim's] not here."

The announcement on DeGeneres's Twitter account comes just days after rumors circulated online of Kim and Kanye's surrogate having delivered their expected son on the same day that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.

"Wait just saw news our baby boy came but that's not true," Kim Kardashian tweeted on May 6. "It's Met Monday, I'm in NYC. I would be at the hospital lol."

This will be Kim and Kanye's second child through a surrogate, although not through the same surrogate mother who delivered their child Chicago, as she had become pregnant on her own.

Recently, Kim helped free her 17th inmate in 90 days, helping to reunite them with family.
