Kim Kardashian gave birth to her first child on Saturday - a month ahead of her due date.
Mail Online exclusively revealed that the 32-year-old had been admitted to hospital in Beverly Hills on Friday.
The reality star had taken out a birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center - a hospital of choice among many celebrities including Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson.Hours later - around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday - she gave birth to her baby girl. Her partner, rapper Kanye West, and mother Kris Jenner were reportedly at her side.
TMZ cited sources that she had a natural birth after having contractions late Friday evening.
Kim had planned to have a C-section but after suffering an infection had decided to take the precaution of going to the hospital a few weeks early, according to X17Online. Her due date was reportedly July 11 - the same day as Kate Middleton.
Both mother and baby are in good health and resting, but given the early birthday, the littlest Kardashian has been placed in an incubator.No further details have been released and the couple have not given any hint at what they will name their daughter.
The couple announced the pregnancy in December. Kardashian has been married twice before - to musician Damon Thomas in her 20s and most recently to basketball player Kris Humphries.
On Friday night West skipped out on a listening party for his latest album in Los Angeles, prompting speculation the baby was on its way.
Several of Kim's close friends, including Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban both attended the party.

Sources close to the couple later confirmed to Mail Online that she had been hospitalized.
It's been a stressful week for the pair as rumours circulated that he cheated on her with a Canadian model after they met at one of his shows, though spokespeople for both Kim and Kanye vigorously deny the claims.
The 36-year-old rapper, who celebrated his birthday on June 8, was last spotted at the Yeezus listening party in Switzerland Tuesday.
He's been heavily active in promoting his new album, due out on Tuesday, and fans wondered whether he was referring to his post-Kardashian lifestyle in the lyrics to his track, New Slave.
West raps: 'I’ll move my family out the country/So you can’t see where I stay/So go and grab the reporters/So I can smash his recorders.'
Asked for this thoughts on parenthood, he said: 'One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child's mother... [But I haven't fully developed those thoughts yet.'He continued: 'Well, I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's Baby.'
