Update: Kim Kardashian has broken her silence on her son Saint West's hospitalization for pneumonia over the holidays. "My precious baby boy is so strong!" the reality star wrote on Instagram and Twitter this morning.

The mother of two revealed that her boy spent three days in the hospital, where he was hooked up to multiple IVs and oxygen machines. The experience was "challenging" and "scary," but Saint is now back home and healthy.

"He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint," Kim added. She also thanked the doctors and nurses who attended to her child. Read her full post below.

Original story: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's two-year-old son, Saint, was hospitalized last week with pneumonia, TMZ reports. He was checked in on Thursday and released on Saturday, and his parents remained with him during his stay, according to sources. The tot is now home and "doing well" insiders tell TMZ.

The Kardashian-Jenner family refrained from sharing details of Saint's hospitalization on social media, but Kim did post a photo of the two-year-old—and the rest of her family—shortly before New Year's Eve. She, Saint, Kanye, and four-year-old North took a sweet family pic in front of a Christmas tree, which Kim shared on Instagram. Little Saint smiled while adorably decked out in Adidas Calabasas gear.

Happy Holidays

The former Bazaar cover star treats her Instagram followers to a photo of Saint every once in a while. She most recently featured him on his birthday earlier last month, with a portrait from the Kardashian-Jenner advent calendar-style holiday card, but she appears to have deleted all of those photos since the holiday has passed.

Though Saint is the younger of Kim and Kanye's two children, he's set to be a big brother soon. The famous couple's third child—who is also a girl—is expected to arrive this month via surrogate.

It may take a while before we get a chance to see baby number three, however. After Saint was born in December 2015, we didn't get a photo of him until February 2016. But considering how cute he is, it was worth the wait.
