Report: Kim Kardashian gives birth to baby girl

(CNN) -- There's now one more Kardashian to keep up with.

On Saturday -- according to E!, the network behind her family's hit reality show-- Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl. The report did not give a name for the newborn, but did say she came into the world at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

She's the first child for the 32-year-old Kardashian, who has modeled, acted and launched business ventures but is best known as a reality TV star with a huge international following, having amassed some 18 million Twitter followers

The father is rapper Kanye West, who was by his girlfriend's side during the delivery, E! reported, citing a source. The couple started dating last year, shortly after Kardashian filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage.

While the baby's arrival was somewhat unexpected -- coming a few weeks earlier than the July due date -- her gender is not. Like many aspects of the Kardashian family's existence, it was revealed on an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- the eighth season premiere, in fact, that aired in June -- documenting her 19-week checkup at her obstetrician's office.

"I'm so excited we're having a girl. Who doesn't want a girl? I think they are the best," Kardashian said then. "I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl."

Kardashian's newborn daughter is the third grandchild of Kris Jenner -- the former wife of the late Robert Kardashian, best known as a lawyer for O.J. Simpson. Jenner is currently married to Olympic legend Bruce Jenner.

Kardashian's sister, Kourtney Kardashian, has two children -- Mason and Penelope -- with her longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick.

As to her own pregnancy, Kim Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest this spring that she did
