Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced on Dec. 7 that their new son is named ‘Saint,’ but HollywoodLife.com just EXCLUSIVELY found out why the name is so sentimental. Here’s what we know!
Oh my gosh, Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kanye West, 38, named their newborn son “Saint” for the most adorable reason ever! HollywoodLife.com found out EXCLUSIVELY what the sentimental meaning was behind the name choice. Find out what it is, here!
It’s not shocking that someone who has a song called “I Am A God” and gave himself the nickname Yeezus would name his son “Saint,” but it’s not quite what you think. Turns out, the reasoning behind Kim and Kanye’s new son’s moniker is much more heartwarming than pretentious. “One of the reasons Kim and Kanye went with the name ‘Saint’ is that it goes perfectly with the middle name they chose, ‘Robert’,” someone close to the new parents told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kim has always considered her dad to be a saint. So Saint Robert is ideal!”
“Robert,” along with being Kim’s brother’s name, was also the name of her late father. Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003, when Kim was just 23. She was incredibly close with her dad, as were all of her sisters, even after his divorce from their mom Kris. So, it’s no surprise that she would want to honor him in such a big way. We already thought Saint was a super cute unique name, but now we’re even more obsessed with it. We can’t wait to watch the little guy grow up, just like his big sister North!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Saint a perfect name for Kim and Kanye’s baby now that you know their sentimental reason, or are you not a fan? Let us know!
