Kardashian West announced the arrival of her fourth child on Twitter Friday, writing, “He’s here and he’s perfect!” She and West, 41, also share daughters Chicago, 15 months, and North, 6 next month, plus son Saint, 3.
The newly minted mother of four followed up with a second tweet that read, “He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her ✨” (They have yet to reveal the name of the new addition.)
The source shares with PEOPLE that the rapper and KKW Beauty mogul have figured out a successful method of balancing their work schedules with parenting their little ones.
“When Kim is working out, Kanye is with the kids and vice versa,” says the insider. “[Kanye is] very close with North in particular. And whenever he isn’t traveling or in the studio, he likes to do school drop-offs.”

On Monday, a source told PEOPLE that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star “had a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend with her newborn and older kids” after announcing the birth of her new son on Friday.
“She didn’t seem stressed out at all,” the insider revealed. “Before the baby was born, she was freaking out for weeks because she felt they weren’t ready for him. But the second he was born, Kim was just focused on how happy she is that her baby boy is here.”
As someone who undoubtedly has a usually hectic schedule between being a mom, filming KUWTK, promoting her beauty line and more, Kardashian West is taking downtime at the moment to get acquainted with her bundle of joy.
“She has a bit of a lighter schedule right now so she can bond with her baby,” the source explained to PEOPLE. “She seems very happy. And Kanye loves the energy of having a newborn. A new baby to love and get to know is so special for the whole family.”
