Kim Kardashian West shared the name of her and husband Kanye West’s newborn daughter via her app and website on Friday. They decided to name the baby girl Chicago. While Kim didn’t explain any significance to the name choice, it could very well be because West was raised in Chicago.
The name news came four days after the baby girl’s birth via surrogate. Kardashian West shared on her website Tuesday that her daughter was born Monday at 12:47 a.m., weighing 7 lbs., 6 oz. “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” the new mom of three — who also shares son Saint, 2, and daughter North, 4½, with West — wrote in a post titled “She’s Here! We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care,” she added. “North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
The newborn’s parents are known for their creativity in choosing unique names for their children, as evidenced by their two older children. And while the 37-year-old reality star and West, 40, likely had their baby girl’s name picked out by the time she arrived, Kardashian West admitted in November that they still had no idea of what they wanted to name their third child.
“At the baby shower, I was like, ‘I just want everyone to write a name on a little tile and see if there is something that sticks,’ ” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “We’re freaking out, we have no name.” The new addition to the already seemingly large family will only be the youngest for awhile, as both Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner‘s are pregnant with their first children, due early this year.
