South Korea: Kim Jong Un's third child born in February

According to South Korean media which cited Seoul's spy agency National Intelligence Service (NIS), Kim's glamorous wife Ri Sol-ju delivered the couple's third child in February. The "gender of their new child is unknown", it reports.

Kim Jong-Un is the third in an familial line of North Korean dictators stretching back to his grandfather, Kim Il-Sung, who founded the state in 1948 and led the invasion of South Korea in 1950, sparking the Korean War. United States basketball star Dennis Rodman, who has conducted unofficial "diplomacy" in the reclusive country, has reported that the second child is a girl.

Rumors that the first family was going to be growing were first sparked after Ri disappeared for several months from the public in 2016.

Given the propensity of the Korean Worker's Party to choose successive male leaders from the Kim family, there was great question and concern about whether or not the couple, married since 2009, would make the continuation of that tradition possible, both in the DPRK and overseas.

Hamilton also hailed Schumacher in a subsequent tweet, in which he wrote: "I'm honoured to have raced with you. Asked by Sky F1's David Croft if he feared unreliability could hamper his title bid, Hamilton said: "I don't".

However, the details of the first and the third child are still not confirmed. Rodman said that he personally held Kim's daughter.

On Tuesday, North Korea launched a ballistic missile that flew over Japan before crashing into the ocean, the latest in a series of ramped up missile tests since Kim became the country's supreme leader in 2011. She and Kim reportedly married around 2009, and she is believed to be around 30 years old.

South Korean newspaper Donga Ilbo reported Tuesday that Ri, who is believed to be 28, had given birth to leader Kim Jong Un's third child. According to observers, since being with his wife, Kim Jong-un has softened his norms for women's clothing and behavior, has allowed North Koreans to wear costumes with pants, jeans, black pantyhose and high heel shoes.
