While Kim Kardashian West may be queen of social media, there's one thing she's been keeping private these past few days. The mother of two took to Twitter Tuesday morning to reveal that her youngest, Saint West, was recently hospitalised for pneumonia, ultimately spending three days in the hospital.
"My precious baby boy is so strong!" she wrote. "After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary."
She followed up the announcement by thanking not just the doctors and nurses who helped Saint, but those all over who dedicate their lives to helping people.
"We are so grateful for you all!" she added.
She also joked that, while the experience was dramatic, Saint has made a full recovery and took the whole ordeal in stride.
"He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint," she concluded.
Motherhood has been a pretty big theme with the Kardashians this past month. Before Saint's illness, Khloé Kardashian finally confirmed her long-rumoured pregnancy with an Instagram post.
"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" the heartfelt post began, going on to say that "I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately."
Now, however, we're all along for the ride. The mother-to-be went on to reveal on Twitter that she was about six months along.
2018, the Kardashians are coming for you.
