Yippee: Planet Earth’s Population Increases by One Kardashian

Whether the world likes it or not, there is a new member of the Kardashian clan. 

Kourtney Kardashian and her partner Scott Disick welcomed their new daughter to the world, saying, "Scott and I are overjoyed to welcome our precious angel Penelope Scotland Disick into our lives." Kourtney gave an all-natural birth to the 7 pound 14 ounce Penelope, her second child with Disick.

No Kardashian name for the new baby, which we can only guess is a contract or branding decision of some sort. But Penelope's fame-loving aunts immediately chimed in, with Kim Kardashian tweeting, "Welcome to the world Penelope Scotland Disick!!!" and Kendal Jenner tweeting "great day! #babytime #penelopescotland." 

The twitterverse may be aflutter for this new addition to the Kardashian family, but just wait for that Kim and Kanye baby: If and when it comes, that kid is going to break the Internet.
