South Korea recently verified that North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un’s wife Ri Sol-ju secretly gave birth to their first child late last year.
The gender of the newborn is not known, but speculators believe the baby may be a girls.
Michael Madden, editor of the online newsletter North Korea Leadership Watch told The Washington Free Beacon, “If it was a boy, [the North Koreans] would have made an announcement.”
If it were a boy, the child could become the fourth-generation to lead North Korea’s communist dictatorship.
Initial speculation of the pregnancy occurred last fall when North Korean agents were seen purchasing baby clothes.
According to Fox News, Kim Jong Un’s wife is said to be influential in the Pyongyang leadership hierarchy.
Kim Jong Un became dictator after his father Kim Jong Il died in 2011 after ruling for 17 years. The North Korean Leader met with former NBA player Dennis Rodman last week. The NBA star seemed to take a liking to the dictator.
