Kim Kardashian & Kanye West: Why They Finally Decided On The Name Saint, For Baby Boy

Wed, December 9, 2015 12:26pm EDT by 5 Comments

Kanye West who is known for calling himself a god, so it was no surprise when he and Kim Kardashian announced their son’s given name. Yes, Kimye settled on Saint West for their newborn’s moniker, but what really was the reason for such an uncommon name? We have all the details on the new report.

Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kanye West, 38, were ecstatic on Dec. 5 when their healthy baby boy was delivered. Now that they’ve revealed their little one’s name, Saint West, everyone is dying to know why they decided on this special moniker. A new report claims it all had to do with Kim’s issues getting pregnant — not her hubby’s ego!

Mr. West just so happens to have a song called “I Am A God” and goes by the nickname Yeezus (which he gave himself) but that doesn’t mean he was the sole reason behind Saint’s unique name. A new report claims Kim’s grueling year spent trying to get pregnant played a huge part in the naming of their second child. The couple was “going to decide when he got there,” an insider tells Us Weekly. Once he arrived, they knew right away they were going to go with Saint, which they had been using since the positive test result. “They would refer to the baby as a saint because she had such a hard time getting pregnant.” His initials go perfectly with his older sister’s. North West, 2, which is NW, flows perfectly with her baby brother’s SW. Too cute and obviously very directional! To hear more about Kim Kardashian, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
