“She [Kim] really loves Bruce and as a sign of love and admiration for Bruce, she and Kanye are discussing making North’s middle name Bruce’s new female name,” a source close to Kim tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She thinks it’s the ultimate sign of love and respect to Bruce. She loves that man and wants his wisdom and zeal for life to rub off on her daughter.”
Our source adds, “Watching Bruce and how gentle and caring he is with all of his children during this process was an eye opener to Kim. It gave her a new perspective on what it means to be a parent.
