The answer everyone has been waiting for has finally been revealed – the name of Kim and Kanye’s child.
People were hoping for Wild West or South West, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new born baby will be named after a US City.
Chicago West will be the name of their third child, as was announced via their app.
The pair had their child via a surrogate and the TV personality explained her decision for this was due to the complications she went through during the births of North and Saint.
It’s not clear why they chose this name in particular, but four-year-old North, and two-year-old Saint have apparently been referring to her by the nickname Chi (pronounced Shy), TMZ reports.
Speaking about the medical advice she received, Kim explained via her Facebook:
I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy.
Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own.
After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier.
Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to.
A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term.
Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s.
Kim confirmed the good news the surrogate had given birth on Monday to a girl weighing 7lbs 60z.
In a statement on her website she wrote:
Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.
We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.
North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister. Love, Kim Kardashian West.
Welcome to the family Chicago!
