Kim Kardashian Announces That Her New Baby’s Name is… Chicago West!

By  | 

Just a few days after we learned that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s surrogate gave birth to a healthy little girl, we now know the bundle of joy’s name! And no, it’s not any variation of Louis Vuitton. KimYe’s newest baby is named — drum roll please!! — Chicago West!

According to TMZ, the family, including 4-year-old North and 2-year-old Saint, have been calling her Chi, which is pronounced ‘shy.’

Aunt Khloe Kardashian is a fan of the parents’ choice, tweeting that she “LOOOOOOOOOOVE[S] her name.”

The 40-year-old rapper grew up in Chicago and has frequently expressed his love for the city, even meeting with President Donald Trump in December 2016 to talk about “multicultural issues” in the Illinois city.

“I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” Kanye wrote on Twitter after the meeting. “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

KKW announced the arrival of Chi on Tuesday with a heartwarming message posted to her official app.

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

It’s clear that the city of Chicago holds a special place in Kanye’s heart and it’s pretty darn adorable that he wanted to reflect that love in his daughter’s name. Also, how cute is the nickname Chi!? Sure, it may not be for everyone, but it’s actually quite tame for KimYe.
