Kim described the latest addition to their famous brood as “perfect” hours after her sister Kourtney Kardashian confirmed Kim's surrogate had gone into labour during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show.
“So, my mum doesn’t even know this, but Kim’s surrogate went into labour, so she’s at the hospital,” Kourtney said.
Kim and West confirmed that they were expecting a new arrival earlier this year, and revealed that the child will be a boy.
Kim and her husband are already parents to North, five, Saint, three, and Chicago, one, who was also born via gestational carrier.
The couple have picked a series of unusual names for their three older children, and it’s safe to assume that the Kardashian-Wests will make an unexpected choice this time around, too.
Discussing the naming process with late night host Jimmy Kimmel last month, Kim explained that she usually waits “three or four days” after the birth of a child before deciding what they will be called – so don’t expect an announcement imminently.
“We all weigh in,” she told Kimmel. “I definitely take a family survey, but it’s usually after the baby’s born and we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like.
“I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel like it really connects.”
What are the most likely options for child number four? Here are the most recent odds on the couple’s latest baby name.
Will Kim pay tribute to her late father by naming her child Robert? The star is certainly considering keeping it in the family, having previously told Kimmel that she was “feeling” the names Robert or Rob (in a nod to her brother).
Perhaps West will call time on his alleged feud with former collaborator Jay-Z by naming his second son Jay – but then again, perhaps not…
Key West: the southernmost point of Florida, Ernest Hemingway’s former home and maybe (just maybe) the fourth Kardashian sibling…
Unless Kim is double bluffing, it seems unlikely that she’ll christen her fourth child South: the star confirmed in an interview with Vogue that the baby “will definitely not have another direction [name]”.
Jesus, son of Yeezus does have a ring to it…
Perhaps West’s outspoken support of US President Donald Trump will influence the couple’s choice of name.
Kim has revealed that older son Saint wants the new arrival to be named Sainty 2, but maybe another title name could be in the works instead.
It’s certainly not beyond the realms of possibility that the rapper will lobby to name his fourth child after… himself.
