The first lady of North Korea gave birth to Kim Jong-Un's third child in secret six months ago, according to intelligence reports.

"The national intelligence service is preparing for the possibility of [another] ballistic missile launch within the period of joint Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises and September 9, the Day of the Foundation of the [North Korean] Republic", the South Korean lawmaker said.

According to previous reports by the NIS, Kim married Ri in 2009 and the couple had their first child the following year.

The only information that has been disclosed is that Kim Jon-un's second child is a girl named Ju-ae as former National Basketball Association player Dennis Rodman revealed in 2013 after a visit to Pyongyang.

The sex of the other two is unknown.

"The NIS told us (Monday) about Ri Sol Ju giving birth to the third child because this implies she remains an influential figure in North Korea", Yi said.

"I held their baby Ju Ae and spoke with Ms. Ri as well", he said, describing Kim as "a good dad".

North Korea has been conducting a large-scale campaign to sort out disgruntled citizens amid growing public fatigue over toughened worldwide sanctions against the impoverished state, Seoul's spy agency said Monday.

North Korea is putting the finishing touches on its next nuclear test and could likely engage in yet another missile provocation, South Korea's spy agency says.

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

Attention was brought on the complicated history of Kim Jong-il's family after the assassination of his older half-brother Kim Jong-nam in an airport earlier this year.

Kim is the third generation of his family to rule the country.

It was became publicly known about Kim Jong Un's marriage to Li Sol Chu in the summer of 2012. Only one of the women is believed to have been his legal wife, though these figures are unconfirmed and have been contested.

A mysterious video of a man called Kim Han-sol claiming to be Kim Jong-nam's son emerged online - making a male heir even more important for the North Korean leader.
