Reality star Kim Kardashian has made no secret of her fertility struggles and her hopes to add another child to her sweet family. So, it was not surprising she seemed filled with joy as she announced her second pregnancy tonight on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

In short clip from the show, we see Kim say to her younger sister Khloe, "I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!"

Just this week Kim shared how "exhausted" she was with trying to have a second child in a preview for KUWTK. She gave birth to daughter North West—or Nori, as the family affectionately calls the toddler —in June of 2013. Nori has already starred in a music video, attended some major fashion shows, and dresses better than most of us. Before her third birthday. New baby has some big shoes to fill.

In a society obsessed with celebrity babies, Kardashian's story is one that merits attention. "About 10 percent of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15 to 44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant," according The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. The organization also claims that one-third of fertility issues are caused by women, while another third are caused by men.
For the millions of women facing fertility issues, it can be a comfort to see that even the most glamorous women aren't exempt from the same struggles.

We have reached out to the E! network for comment and will update this post with any new information.

Congratulations to Kim and Kanye this joyous announcement!
