Kim Kardashian has apparently announced something major on social media — her daughter Chicago’s middle name! The moniker actually runs in the family and it makes Chi the only West kid to have a middle name!
Does Chicago West, 5 months, have a middle name? Taking to Instagram on July 2, Kim Kardashian, 37, seemed to reveal that baby Chi is in fact her and Kanye West‘s, 41, first child to have three monikers! Sharing a sweet selfie of herself with her daughter, Kim wrote, “💕 Chi 💕 Noel 💕,” most likely insinuating that Chicago’s middle name is Noel. And if the name sounds familiar, it should! Kim’s own middle name is actually Noel, so it makes perfect sense she’d want her daughter to carry on the legacy.
“Pretty like mum noel,” one Instagram commenter wrote. Another gushed, “She has a Middle Name 😍.” In the photo, Chicago is making a hilarious face with her mouth in a pout and one eye slightly more closed than the other. SO cute! Meanwhile, Kim appears makeup-free in a tracksuit in the background. However, while it is a surprise Chicago has a middle name, the fact that it’s Noel was fairly expected from eagle-eyed fans. After all, some believed Chicago’s first name would be Noel, before her actual name was announced.
For one, fans thought Kimye would stick with the “N” theme for their girls, as their first daughter is named North West. And since Chi was due around Christmastime, others did in fact suggest Noel. Like Kim and Chicago, Kanye too has a middle name, Omari. However, North and Saint West, 2, do not.
When Kim first announced Chicago’s name in January, there was no mention of Noel — or a middle name at all for that matter. In fact, when Chi’s birth certificate was revealed, there was no middle name at all. However, it’s entirely possible to give your child a middle name after the fact. If your baby is under one-year-old, parents can change or add a middle name by submitting a request, according to Legal Zoom.
