Even though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s lives are crazy, they knew that they wanted to have baby number four at the right time. The famous couple waited until the rapper, 41, was in the “best state of mind while they were trying for another child,” a source revealed to Us Weekly.

“Kim wanted their carrier to be pregnant shortly after Chicago’s birth, but they put those plans on hold when Kanye was having issues this year,” the source revealed. “Kanye has been great. He’s been healthy, happy, and his head is clear. They are both very excited for this new baby.”

On Jan. 2, multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the couple is expecting their fourth child together via surrogate, and a baby boy is due in “very early May,” according to the insider. The couple already shares three kids together — North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 11 months.

The “Gold Digger” singer has made quite a few headlines this year — from his controversial comments about President Donald Trump, to feuding with Drake on Twitter, and admitting to Charlamagne the God that his “breakdown” was a “breakthrough” — it seemed like no one knew what was going to come out of Kanye’s mouth next.

Even though Ye has been known for his erratic behavior, Kim, 38, has supported her hubby through it all. During the Season 15 finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the KKW Beauty founder talked about how she deals with Kanye’s behavior. “When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says. He can’t let it go. But he loves getting ramped up,” she confessed. “As a wife, it’s really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”

On Jan. 1, the Chicago native tweeted, “Love everyone. Start the year clean. Just be. All love.” Hopefully, this is the fresh start that he needs to be able to focus on what’s most important: his family.
