Kim Jong Un and his wife Ri Sol-Ju may have had their first child at the end of 2012, although there has been no formal announcement of a birth.
According to Christian Science Monitor, South Korea has confirmed that the North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un and his wife have had a child.

It is speculated that the child is a girl, since no announcement was made. The North Korean Dictatorship is a patriarchal one, and if Kim Jong Un had had a son, he would have made an official announcement.
If the child is a girl it is not likely she will be groomed to take over after her father dies. Women in North Korea do not take many public roles.
That is in direct contrast to South Korea, who recently elected their first female President, Park Geun-hye.
In fact, the rumors that Ri Sol-Ju was pregnant came after she was seen in public with her husband looking heavy around her middle. The wives of North Korean leaders rarely make any public appearances. Because the date of the marriage was kept secret, it is speculated the couple has only been married a year.
Kim Jong Un and his wife were recently photographed at a basketball game when they played host to former NBA star turned diplomat Dennis Rodman.
Ri Sol-Ju was looking thin, and showed no signs of having given birth and there was no baby traveling with the couple.
Kim Jong Un recently conducted nuclear tests to send a warning to the United States to stop its hostile policies when dealing with the North.
The United States and North Korea were enemies during the Korean War, which was only active for three years but is technically still going on. The US and North Korea never signed a peace treaty, the conflict ended in a truce.
North Korea can get the war started again at any time. Rodman told ABC News that Kim Jong Un said, "I don't want to do war, I don't want to do war."
Rodman also said that Kim Jong Un wants President Obama to "call him" so they can speak.
The United States does not agree with North Korea's polices in governing his people. While Rodman was being treated like a VIP guest and calling Kim Jong Un an "awesome guy," his people were starving due to lack of enough food from the government.
