After Kimye’s baby was welcomed to the world on June 15, there’s been a lot of speculation about the baby’s name. Multiple sources told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the couple would stick to the Kardashian tradition and have the baby’s first name start with a ‘K,’ but a new report says the couple have gone in a peculiar direction.
Kim Kardashian, 32, and Kanye West, 36, are proud parents of a precious baby girl, but they have been careful to keep her name a secret. However, now TMZ claims that their baby girl’s name is North West.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Baby’s Name
The birth certificate allegedly reveals that the name of their baby daughter is North West, reports TMZ.
Could it be that the couple have put a name on the birth certificate that they intend to change? Or did they really name their daughter after a compass direction?
If this is true, Kim and Kanye must have changed their minds because HollywoodLife.com was exclusively told they wanted to uphold the Kardashian family’s tradition of first names starting with the letter “K.” Plus, multiple sources also told us that they wanted to honor Kanye’s late mother, Donda West.
“Kai Georgia Donda West was mentioned” as their top choice for a name, an insider told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
HollywoodLife.com reached out to Kim and Kanye’s reps for confirmation.
Us Weekly is reporting that North West is the baby’s name and she already has a nickname. “They will call her Nori for short,” the source says.
The new parents have been very secretive all along, during the entire pregnancy. So, keeping the baby’s name a secret until they’re ready to reveal it their way makes sense.
Kim & Kanye Keep Their Baby’s Gender A Secret
For example, although the couple found out the gender of their baby as soon as they could, they kept it a secret from the public until the official reveal on Kim’s hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In a recent episode, Kim visited the doctor’s office with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and mom Kris Jenner, and the doctor revealed she was having a girl!
But the couple had managed until then to keep the baby’s gender unknown by keeping all of their purchases — including clothing — gender unspecific, for many months. As Kim explained on KUWTK:
We buy all white. Or we’ll go and buy both [girl and boy clothing], and then no one will know!
What do YOU think of the name, North West? Do you think that’s the real name of Kim and Kanye’s baby? Or do you think that their baby’s name will end up starting with a “K”?
