“And nobody knows, so everyone in the audience don’t tell,” Kourtney explained while laughing.

During the Jan. 14 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kardashian West confirmed the pregnancy news herself after Andy Cohen asked if she was “working on another child.”

“We are,” the reality star responded, adding that the baby was due “sometime soon.”

“It’s a boy, I think it’s been out there,” Kardashian West told the host. “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.”

Multiple sources previously confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple’s fourth child would be a son.

Everything so far has been smooth,” the insider added.

“Just like the last time, Kim is very involved with the carrier. Kim goes to doctor’s visits with the carrier and makes sure that she has everything she needs.”

Kim Kardashian West's baby shower | Olivia Pierson/Instagram While celebrating the imminent arrival of her fourth child in late April, Kardashian West’s famous friends and family gathered at her home for a “CBD & Meditation”-themed baby shower.

During the gathering, each person in attendance was given their own navy blue Yeezy slides and took part in a sound bath. In addition, baby blue-colored decorations were placed all around as well as a “Name Game” board where many suggested unique monikers for baby West.

Explaining how she decided on the bash’s theme, Kardashian West admitted she was “freaking out” because “the baby is coming in, like, two weeks.”

“I thought, what better way to celebrate than to have a little CBD?” the mom-to-be told her guests, including momager Jenner and sister Kourtney, as well as Chrissy TeigenParis HiltonLarsa Pippen, her daughter North and niece Penelope.

Continuing, the star also said, “I thought it was kind of ridiculous to have a fourth baby shower. But I thought I’m freaking the f— out having a fourth kid. … So everyone have a puff and put on some oil.”
