According to the entertainment network papa Kanye West was by her side for the delivery.
So far Kardashian is being coy and hasn't Tweeted about the birth her publicist Jill Fritzo is not responding to repeated requests for comment. She and West have not revealed the name but according to E Kardashian told friends it will begin with a K.

Bethenny Frankel All kidding aside congrats kimkardashian on your baby girl. It's the most beautiful best thing that could happen to you. Girls rule.
Us Weekly cites an unnamed hospital source as saying the reality star delivered five weeks early. Kim got sick last night and had the baby early.
The source added They're all doing great and amazing
TMZ reports that Kardashian had a natural birth after beginning contractions on Friday and going into full labor on Saturday.
It is the first child for the reality TV star and her boyfriend West.
For those who have somehow been immune to the ongoing coverage of the Kardashian offspring West 36 first announced Kardashian's pregnancy in December during a concert in Atlantic City. Stop the music and make noise for my baby mama now you having my baby he shouted to the audience which included Kardashian.
Since then Kardashian 32 has been a near daily presence on blogs and websites and in magazines which have chronicled her unusual choices in maternity wear (consisting mostly of black and white pieces) her growing girth and how much time she's been spending with West (not much). Their most high profile public outing May's Met Ball in New York City.
Kardashian told USA TODAY in March that she understood the interest in her. I get that my life is very public and I live my life on a reality show. It gets a little tedious sometimes when I'm asked a bunch of questions that are so silly she said.
Give this to Kardashian she doesn't hold much back when she's on air. On the season premiere of her reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians she revealed that she's having a girl. I'm so excited we're having a girl. Who doesn't want a girl They are the best and I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl she said.

Of course whether the child will be on the show remains up for debate. I think as of now that's just you know a decision that Kanye and I made. From the start we're just gonna try to keep it as private as possible she told Jimmy Kimmel in January.
In reality her pregnancy has been chronicled on the show. On the season finale of Kourtney and Kim take Miami she broke the news that she was having a baby. She had an opulent baby shower with mom Kris Kenner sisters Kourtney and Khloe and West in attendance which was filmed for the show.
West whose public demeanor is surly at the best of times was focused on his sixth album Yeezus which he was busy recording in Paris while Kardashian was pregnant and filming. The album out June 18 already leaked online.
Meanwhile Kardashian is finally a single lady. After a long battle that outlasted her 72 day marriage Kardashian finally divorced basketball player Kris Humphries in April.
I've said some things that I completely am like a hypocrite about now Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest one of the producers of her show in an E news special. I would say things about Kourtney like 'You cannot have a baby without being married '
