Kim & Kanye name their baby girl 'Chicago'
One of the most famous couples in the world announced the name of their new bundle of joy over the weekend. Kim – in true social media star fashion - announced the name of their third child via her app and on Twitter. The announcement put an end to fan speculation about the name of the newborn since her arrival.
Little Chicago West was born on Monday, July 15, weighing in at 7lb 6oz. The name has gained a relatively positive response – it’s safe to say that the couple were never going to choose a traditional name. Chicago the city, coincidentally is the birthplace and home town of Kanye. Kim also posted on Twitter that she would nickname the newborn ‘Chi’, which we think is quite cute!
Kim and Kanye chose to have a baby by surrogate this time, after Kim suffered complications during her last pregnancy. Though Kim's surrogate was discussed on their show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, her identity has not been revealed. Mrs West said that she has had a 'great relationship' with the surrogate and 'trusted her completely throughout the whole process', adding,
'I'm so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible. It's not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I've ever had.'
The little one joins siblings North, 4 and Saint, 2.
Welcome to the world Chicago West.
