  • Tillerson Pyongyang has shown restraint

The only information that has been disclosed is that Kim Jong-un's second child is a girl named Ju-ae, as the former National Basketball Association player Dennis Rodman revealed in 2013 after a visit to Pyongyang where he spent time with the leader's family.

Lawmakers were briefed on the matter Monday, said Kim Byung-kee of the ruling Democratic Party, though Kim Jong Un's wife Ri Sol Ju is believed to have given birth in February. The "gender of their new child is unknown", it reports.

News of the new arrival emerged as North Korea fired a ballistic missile over northern Japan.

Ri's first and second children were believed to have been born in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

Last week , Trump threatened to shut down the government if he Congress could not secure funding for the wall's construction. Trump raised the possibility of a government shutdown over wall funding at a fiery August 22 campaign rally in Phoenix.

Ri last appeared in public in July this year but she had stayed off the radar for an entire nine months in 2016, with speculation rife about her pregnancy.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, following his trip to the North in 2013, has been the only source of information about the couple's second child - a baby girl named Ju-Ae. Rodman later went on to describe Kim as "a good dad". In fact, Kim and Ri's marriage wasn't even confirmed until 2012, at which point they'd been married for roughly three years.

She visited South Korea in 2005 as a cheerleader for her country's squad in the Asian Athletics Championships.

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.
