Did Kim Kardashian Drop a Major Hint About the Sex of Her Fourth Baby on the Way Weeks Ago?

Kim Kardashian West previously revealed that daughter North, 5½, told her they "need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone"

Had Kim Kardashian West already revealed the sex of her and Kanye West‘s baby on the way?

Multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE Tuesday that the superstar couple’s fourth child, whom they’re expecting via surrogate, is a boy. The newest family member is reportedly due in the spring.

During an October interview on Ashley Graham‘s podcast Pretty Big Deal, Kardashian West talked about how her 5½-year-old daughter North was hoping for another brother to join 3-year-old Saint.

“She said to me the other day, ‘Mom … we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone … so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house,’ ” revealed the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 38, of her oldest child.

“North acts like an only child at all times. I think she’s a little confused,” Kardashian West — who is also mom to daughter Chicago, 1 this month — shared as well.

“She’s beyond jealousy now. She’s just like, ‘It’s my world.’

Following the news last week that Kardashian West and the rapper, 41, are expecting again, a source told PEOPLE, “They’ve always talked about wanting four kids: two boys and two girls.”

“That’s always been the plan,” the insider added, noting, “They definitely want a boy.”

And while West is famous for his music, Yeezy fashion line and regularly making headlines for his erratic behavior, when he’s home, he’s content with just being “Dad.”

“He loves the innocence of children; they’re not judging him. They don’t care what he does for a living,” explained the source. “They don’t read the tabloids. To them, he’s just Dad.”
