The reality star was telling the show host a story about North West, 4, preparing for the new baby, when she suddenly said "baby sister," to which Ellen DeGeneres quickly responded: "you just told us it's a girl."
As Radar readers know, Kim, 37, is expecting her third child with husband Kanye West, 40, via surrogate. While she recently hosted an all-pink baby shower, she had not officially confirmed the news of her baby's gender – until now.
"My daughter thinks she's tricky," Kim said. "We had a baby shower over the weekend, and I thought, 'You know, I really do want to have a baby shower because I want North to feel that something's coming and for her to really understand it.'"

"So, people brought toys and gifts and North was opening them all up the next day," the star explained to Ellen, 59. "And she goes, 'Mom, since Baby Sister's not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room and play with them and make sure they're all okay for Baby Sister.'"
Kim went on to say that North was "really excited" about the idea of having a sister.
"At the baby shower, I was like, 'I just want everyone to write a name on a little tile and see if there is something that sticks,'" she said. "We're freaking out, we have no name."
Kim added that while daughter North is keen on the name "Star West," she herself is "not vibing with it."
