With so many divorce, breakup, dating, pregnancy rumors, pregnancy confirmations (and births!) surrounding the Kardashian family — ironically — it’s getting hard to keep up! In fact, the Kardashian family tree is expanding so rapidly that we might soon need a KUWTK Nursery School spinoff!
The Kardashian-Jenner clan is growing in real time! With Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner actively sharing snaps of their new bundles of joy, it’s just a matter of time until their sibling — Khloe Kardashian — adds a new branch to the Kardashian family tree.
Update: Kim and Kanye have added a fourth child to their clan. Psalm West, their newest baby boy, joined the world on May 9th, 2019, thanks to a surrogate. See their family tree below for the new Kardashian leaf as well as updated pics of the kids!
Kardashian Pregnancy Timeline: It Actually Gets Less Confusing… Sort Of
So…momager Kris Jenner, has six children — three Kardashian sisters and their brother Rob Kardashian, and two Jenner sisters — plus six grandchildren. Now with the births of three new Kardashian babies in the same year she has a total of nine grandchildren!
Note: The Kardashians consistently gave birth for five years in a row, delivering their bundles of joy yearly from 2012 through 2016. In 2017, however, the Kardashian baby-making machine was put on hold — only to come back in full force churning out three more babies in 2018.
Birthday – April 18, 1979: Kourtney Kardashian
Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, who had tied the knot the year before, welcomed their first child together, Kourtney.
The oldest Kardashian sibling is best known for her weight loss secrets, love for swimsuits and bikinis; her tumultuous, on-again/off-again relationship with Scott Disick, being the brand ambassador of Manuka Doctor, and being the shortest of all Kardashian-Jenner sisters, at just 5’0″.
Birthday – October 21, 1980: Kim Kardashian
But the world would be boring with only one Kardashian girl, so Kris and Robert brought Kim into this world.
In her lifetime, Kim, who is arguably the best known of all Kardashian-Jenner siblings, has made headlines more times than you can count. Kim is most famous for her infamous sex tape with partner Ray J, being the queen of selfies (and of all social media for that matter); her Taylor Swift feud, that terrifying robbery in Paris, and, of course, her voluptuous butt. And also … Kimojis!

Birthday – June 27, 1984: Khloe Kardashian
Nearly four years after delivering Kim, Kris became a mom for the third time! This is the day Khloe was born.
Khloe is best known for her not-so-Kardashian looks, which has triggered rumors about her parentage numerous times — and even made her take a DNA test. Khloe has made more reality TV appearances than Kim; and is best known for her dramatic body transformation, and her messy divorce from Lamar Odom.
More recently, Khloe was all over the news for the pending birth in April 2018 of their first child with partner Tristan Thompson. The reality TV star remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy for nearly four months before finally confirming the rumors via Instagram.
Birthday – March 17, 1987: Rob Kardashian
Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner welcomed their fourth child together, Rob.
Rob Kardashian is best known for his weight loss/weight gain swings, being absent from most of Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV series; also, for lining his Twitter feed with socks (yep, socks — Rob has his own sock empire), going on a revenge porn rant against Blac Chyna, and feuding with sister Kim (and later ending their beef).
Birthday – November 3, 1995: Kendall Jenner
After more than four years of marriage, Kris and Bruce Jenner welcomed their first daughter together, Kendall Jenner (Kris married the former Olympian one month after her divorce from Robert Kardashian in 1991).
Kendall is best known for her ever-growing modeling career, being friends with supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid, and her long-running disagreements with momager Kris.
Birthday – August 10, 1997: Kylie Jenner
Less than two years after Kendall’s birth, another Jenner was born, Kylie. The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has had her entrepreneurial fingers in many, many pies.
Kylie has her own cosmetics line called Kylie Cosmetics, and her lipsticks sell out like hot cakes worldwide. Many beauty experts argue that Kylie Jenner was the one who made plump pouts a huge beauty trend.
Kylie is also known for competing with sister Kim for the “queen of social media” crown; and reportedly going under the knife for plastic surgery.
In recent months, Kylie took the global mediasphere by storm with pregnancy rumors. Although Kylie Jenner’s due date is rumored to be set for early February, the young makeup mogul has yet to confirm or deny the rumors.
Fast forward to almost two decades later…
Birthday – December 14, 2009: Mason Disick
Kourtney and Scott Disick welcomed their first child together, Mason Dash Disick. The pair never got married. Mason became Kris’s first grandchild (but more to come!).
Kourtney revealed that she was pregnant on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show on August 13, 2009 (four months before birth).
Birthday – July 8, 2012: Penelope Disick
Kourtney became a mother for the second time, delivering daughter Penelope Scotland Disick.
Kourtney confirmed her pregnancy on November 30, 2011 (over seven months before birth) in a cover story for Us Weekly.
Birthday – June 15, 2013: North West
Kim Kardashian was next in line to expand the Kardashian-Jenner family. The queen of selfies welcomed her first child, daughter North West, with rapper Kanye West.
West announced his then-girlfriend Kim’s pregnancy during a concert in Atlantic City on December 31, 2012 (more than six months before childbirth). The lovebirds got engaged in October that year.
Birthday – December 14, 2014: Reign Disick
Aaand it’s a third one for Kourtney and Scott! The pair welcomed their son Reign Aston Disick on the same day their first son, Mason, was celebrating his fifth birthday.
Kourtney confirmed she was expecting baby number three during a season premiere episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on June 9, 2014 (six months before due date).
Birthday – April 24, 2015: Caitlyn Jenner
Technically, it’s the day Bruce Jenner was reborn by transitioning into a woman, Caitlyn. This is the day Bruce publicly announced that he was no longer Bruce; and a new addition to the Kardashian-Jenner family (yet another girl!), Caitlyn Jenner, emerged.
Caitlyn made the buzzworthy announcement, which went on to become the number one trending topic for weeks, during a two-hour special edition of 20/20.
Birthday – December 5, 2015: Saint West
More than seven months after Jenner’s gender transition, Kim and Kanye welcomed their second child together, son Saint West.
Kim responded to the pregnancy rumors and revealed her baby’s gender via an Instagram post on May 31, 2015 (six months before birth). Saint’s birth came one-and-a-half years after their exclusive wedding at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
Birthday – November 10, 2016: Dream Renée Kardashian
It was time for men to be men in the Kardashian-Jenner family! Rob Kardashian welcomed his first child with then-fiancée Blac Chyna. They named their daughter Dream Renée.
The pair split the following month after Dream’s birth, then reconciled briefly in February 2017, before ending things again and calling off their engagement a few days later.
In July that year, Rob posted sexually explicit photos of the mother of his child, which eventually helped Chyna obtain a temporary restraining order against her former beau.
Chyna’s father, Eric Holland, confirmed daughter’s pregnancy on July 19, 2016 (four months before due date).
Birthday – January 15, 2018: Chicago West
On January 15, 2018, Kim and West welcomed their third child, this time via surrogate. The baby girl, whose name wasn’t immediately revealed, was born weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces.
Kim Kardashian’s surrogate, a stay-at-home mom named La’Reina Haynes, was reportedly paid a staggering $75,000 by the couple. Kim decided to turn to a surrogate after two doctors warned her about health risks associated with getting pregnant again.
While the question “Who is Kim Kardashian’s surrogate?” was on everyone’s lips throughout the pregnancy, the family had kept the surrogate’s identity under wraps until March, 2018, when Haynes’ identity was revealed during a KUWTK episode. However, there were plenty of photos of Haynes carrying the West’s baby girl during the pregnancy.
On January 19, Kim finally revealed the name of her newborn girl via her personal app. Kim and her husband called their new baby girl Chicago West, though many fans were convinced their daughter would be named Louise or Elle V., after Louis Vuitton, following Kim’s series of hints posted on social media.
Chicago made her big debut in Kylie Jenner’s video message to her own baby girl on February 4. The newborn daughter of Kardashian and West made her first public appearance in the video, when Kim gave her to then-pregnant Kylie to hold. Finally, Kim shared a selfie with her new babe on Instagram.
Birthday – February 1, 2018: Stormi Webster
Kylie had been rumored to be expecting a baby girl with rapper Travis Scott for more than four months before she finally confirmed her pregnancy. The pair dated for five months before pregnancy rumors surfaced in late September 2017.
Although Kylie was pretty crafty at hiding her baby bump over the months, she dropped quite a few pregnancy hints in October and November, suggesting that she might also add some new branches to the Kardashian family tree.
When the public’s curiosity reached a boiling point in December, a couple of leaked photos allegedly showed Kylie sporting a prominent baby bump at September’s party in Calabasas.
The beauty mogul was also pictured in late December when she made a surprise appearance at Kris Jenner’s Christmas party. In a series of photos carefully showing herself from the chest up, Kylie posed alongside her pregnant sibling Khloe and also her baby daddy Travis Scott.
On February 4, Kylie put an end to the preggo rumors in an Instagram post, which both confirmed her pregnancy for the first time and announced the birth of her first child with Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster. In the post, Kylie explained why she had kept her pregnancy under wraps, saying that “I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
Alongside the Instagram post, in which the makeup mogul confirmed her baby girl was born on February 1, 2018, Kylie also shared a video message to her newborn daughter. The emotional short YouTube documentary detailed Kylie’s journey to motherhood–everything that had been kept out of the public eye for nine months. The video showed plenty of footage of Kylie with a cute baby bump. Toward the end of the video, Kylie shared audio of the moment her daughter was welcomed into the world, and offered the first glimpse of the newborn girl.
On February 6, Kylie took to Instagram to reveal the name of her baby girl, Stormi Webster, and share the first snap of the baby girl, which was born weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces.
April 12, 2018: True Thompson
UPDATE: It’s a girl! Khloe and Tristan welcomed their little lady amid a cheating scandal, though the duo do appear to be bonding over their new, non-traditionally name bundle, True.
Just two days before True’s birth, sensational footage of Tristan Thompson getting handsy with an unidentified woman at a New York bar leaked and went viral online. Reports indicated that Tristan cheated on his pregnant girlfriend multiple times. Although Khloe appears to have forgiven her NBA beau and gave him “one last chance” after the cheating scandal, she was reportedly prepared to seek full legal and primary custody of their daughter.
Khloe revealed her daughter’s name, True Thompson, four days after giving birth. The reality star remained silent about her baby daddy’s infidelity scandal, and instead shared an Instagram snap showing a room filled with pink balloons.
Momager Kris Jenner revealed on Twitter that the somewhat unusual baby name came from True’s maternal grandfather, Robert True Houghton, and great grandfather, True Otis Houghton.
Khloe sent fans into a frenzy on December 20 by finally confirming that she was expecting her first child with NBA player beau Tristan Thompson, whom she has been dating since 2016. Rumors about her pregnancy had been floating around since October 2017.
Numerous preggo rumors indicated that Khloe could be pregnant with a baby boy, but as it turns out, they were wrong. During a Keeping Up With the Kardashians teaser on December 14, 2017, Khloe also appeared to have subtly confirmed her pregnancy (roughly four months before due date).

Birthday — May 9, 2019: Psalm West
On May 9th, 2019, Kim and Kanye added a fourth child to their ever-expanding family. They delivered a beautiful baby boy named Psalm West. They used a surrogate mom but not the same surrogate they used for Chicago. Mom announced the birth on Twitter saying, “He’s here and he’s perfect!”
“Kim absolutely loves being a mom and feels like her family is complete now, with two boys and two girls making it even,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly. “She feels like she spaced each child out just enough where it isn’t too overwhelming for her.”
It didn’t take long for Kim to file a trademark application under Psalm’s name either. Will Psalm be a future multi-million-dollar brand?
And the inspiration behind his name? Grandma Kim Jenner told ET that it was “…the Book of Psalms in the Bible.” Even Chrissy Teigan weighed in telling People, “I know they wanted something biblical and I think they feel so set with their family now, it’s so complete. Four has to be such a trip, I can’t even imagine — two feels like a million.”
