Yonhap News Agency on Thursday quoted a source from the committee as saying that various circumstances highlight the probability that the first child of Kim and his wife Ri Sol-ju is a son and that their third child is also rumored to be male.
The North Korean leader’s second child is thought to be a daughter. Information about the child became public after former NBA basketball player Dennis Rodman visited North Korea in 2013. He later said in a media interview that he had held Kim’s daughter, Joo-ae.
Kim and Ri reportedly had their third child this February. The gender and name of the baby is still not known, but the South Korean intelligence community speculates that Joo-ae might have older and younger brothers.
