Kanye West's baby girl has arrived. A source confirmed to Us Weekly that Kim Kardashian gave birth today at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.

The baby is the first for 32-year-old Kardashian, who started dating West, 36, in the spring of 2012. The father-to-be let news of the pregnancy slip during a show in late December, when he asked the crowd to "make some noise for my baby mama right quick."

Kardashian was originally due on July 11th, but a source at the hospital said that everyone was doing well despite the early delivery. The baby's name has not yet been announced.

According to TMZ, West was in the delivery room for the birth, having canceled a record release party on Friday night after Kardashian said she was feeling "a little off."

In a recent interview with the New York Times, West reflected on his impending fatherhood. "One of the things [I thought about] was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother," he said, adding later, "This is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby."

West's new album, Yeezus, is due out on June 18th – although that, too, received an early welcome when the record was leaked on Friday.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
