Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's third child has arrived - and it's a girl.

The baby was born on Monday (local time) via surrogate, Kim announced on her website.

"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," she wrote.

"We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.

"North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister."

Kim gave birth to their first two babies, Saint and North, but a third was deemed too unsafe after she suffered from placenta accreta during the deliveries.

The surrogate has given birth to babies for other couples before and appeared in a promotional video about the process with her own family.

She's said to have been paid US$45,000 for the service.
