Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have welcomed a daughter, it has been announced.

The baby was born by C-section at Cedars-Sinai hospital on Thursday (10 November), weighing seven pounds and five ounces.

According to E! the couple has named the new arrival Dream Renee Kardashian, who shares her middle name with her mother.

"She is gorgeous and has tonnes of hair!" a source told E! News.

Rob's sister, Khloe Kardashian, 32, was the first of his family to share the happy news and congratulate the new parents on social media.

"My new niece is absolutely stunning!" she tweeted. "So thankful I was able to land in time to witness this miracle happen! Praise God!"

Blac's BFF Amber Rose also tweeted: "Congratulations to my sister @blacchyna and brother @robkardashian on their lil bundle of joy!"

Chyna, 28 – who already has a four-year-old son King Cairo with ex Tyga – gave birth to her second child in a $4,000-a-night luxury hospital suite at the Beverly Hills medical centre where Rob's sister Kim welcomed son Saint West last year.

Blac's mother, Tokyo Toni, and Rob's mother, Kris Jenner, along with her beau Corey Gamble were at the hospital to support the couple.

Kris, 61, has reportedly taken extra security measures to protect the baby from being photographed.

While the birth was not filmed for the couple's reality TV show, due to protocol at the Cedars clinic, E! announced that the arrival of the new addition to the family will be featured in an hour-long Rob & Chyna Baby Special, Mail Online reported.

The announcement read: "During the special, we see that family and friends are never far away, coming together to support Rob and Chyna as they prepare for the birth of their daughter."

Meanwhile on social media, fans of TV's first family have been sending messages of congratulations to Rob and Chyna, as well as commenting on the unusual choice of name for the newest member of the Kardashian clan.

The Rob & Chyna Baby Special will premiere December 18 at 8pm.
