UPDATE: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their second child, a baby boy, on Dec. 5, 2015.

Two weeks before baby North turns two, we've learned that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West are expecting a second child. Sunday night's Keeping Up With the Kardashians midseason finale delivered the news. The previous episodes detailed Kimye's struggles conceiving again.

Earlier this year, Kanye told Ellen "we're trying" when asked about expanding the family. In the same week, Kim told People, "We’ve really been trying for another kid. More kids can’t come soon enough!”

Daydreaming about a new West baby should be a good distraction from waiting (and waiting, and waiiiiting) for Swish, Yeezy's seventh solo album. How do you follow up a name like North West? Is Kanye psyched that the Watch the Throne cut "New Day"—a paean to his and Jay Z's unborn, um, sons—has another chance at coming true?

(Personally we're rooting for a girl. Then we've got a Blue Ivy, North West, and TBD West supergroup all set. Move over, Destiny's Child.)
