Kim Kardashian's famous family just got a bit bigger.

Earlier this morning, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star announced the arrival of her third child with Kanye West.

"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," Kim announced on her app Tuesday morning. "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."

While the proud mom has kept her surrogate's pregnancy journey private, Kim hasn't been shy about expressing her joy about motherhood.

"I have such unconditional love for my kids," she previously wrote on her website last summer. "No matter what, I will always love them and support them in anything they choose to do in life."

As the couples get used to their family of five, we pulled just some of the meaningful things Kim has said about being a mom. It's safe to say it's her greatest title of them all.

"It completely changed my life. You have a different set of proprieties," Kim once said in a Mobio Insider Q&A. "Nothing matters except your brand new family."

"I have such unconditional love for my kids. No matter what, I will always love them and support them in anything they choose to do in life. My family was so close growing up; now that I'm a mom, I understand the bond my mom and dad felt with us," she shared on her website last summer. "There can be ups and downs with kids but no matter what, I always learn so much from them. Being a mom is the most important job I have."

"I try to share my life. I definitely love doing that, but I think I'm a little bit more cautious these days about what I do share," she explained on The View after her Paris robbery. "I've learned through experience that things in real time I might change up a little bit. I might take a photo, save it, post it when I leave the place or when I'm in a different location because I don't think that worked out for me so well when I was posting every last detail."

"I took a hiatus after I had the baby, and found it challenging to start working again because I didn't want to spend any time away," she revealed to E! News after the birth of North West. "But you adjust and prioritize, and just figure it out!"

"I have to figure that out first before they really see and then if we're celebrating, you know, her, I just want to celebrate the baby," Kim previously shared on The Real. "I think I have to explain it to my kids first and figure out how I'm going to explain it to them."

"I'm like really thankful. Like I'm seriously so grateful for her and that someone is just so like selfless and kind to do this," she shared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "And I definitely want to keep it private."

"I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public," she wrote on her app in January 2015. "Now that I'm a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes."

"We talk about baby brother all the time. She's so sweet and yesterday she said, ‘Mommy, can I give baby brother a kiss on your tummy?' and she kissed my stomach. She's super sweet. She has a hard time when I hold other babies but she's been getting a little bit better and I'm hoping that with her brother it's a whole new experience." -Kim Kardashian, E! News, November 2015.

"First they said I'm too skinny so I have to be faking it...Now they say I'm too big so I have to be faking it...SMH! Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger. It's all a part of the process. I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I've learned to love my body at every stage! I'm going to get even bigger & that's beautiful too! I'm blessed to even be pregnant & even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don't have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I'm grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don't affect me! #NoFilter #NoPhotoShop #GoodLighting" -Kim Kardashian, Instagram, August 2015.
