We knew Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would bestow and incredible and unique moniker on their new baby boy. But in calling him Saint, the name as an extra special meaning for Kim, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the reason why.
Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kanye West, 38, were the happiest people on Earth Dec. 5 when she delivered a perfect and healthy baby boy. Now that they’ve revealed their little one’s name is Saint, it’s even more special with the middle name that Kim gave her son to honor her late father. Get ready to melt, because HollywoodLifers.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on Saint’s special meaning.
“One of the reasons Kim and Kanye went with the name Saint is that it goes perfectly with the middle name they chose, Robert. Kim has always considered her dad to be a saint. So Saint Robert is ideal!” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Kim lost her beloved father Robert Kardashian in 2003, only eight weeks after he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. We’re sure he would have been so proud of Kim’s fame and success, and especially her beautiful children.
With a daddy whose nickname is “Yeezus” and uncle Scott Disick calling himself “The Lord,” the name Saint makes perfect sense in the Kardashian household. And the name had been on the table well before the little boy made his arrival, as HollywoodLife.com told you EXCLUSIVELY on Nov. 9. We reported that the top names in the running were “Saint” and “Legend” and we’re really glad they went with the former.
Saint West has a much better ring to it, even though the internet piled on hate for the couple’s choice. C’mon, it’s Kim and Kanye we’re talking about here. Did we really expect anything ordinary for their first son? Pick up a copy of Kanye West’s Yeezus by clicking here.
